Echoes Book Review

Okay, this was the third book in a series and I did not know that, so I don't know anything about this woman or the previous two books I don't have a clue what happened to her in the old books but this is an excerpt of what is going on in this book:
In this dramatic contemporary romance by bestselling author Robin Jones Gunn, Lauren Phillips enters the wild, uncharted territory of the Internet on her home computer and "connects" with a man known only as "K.C."  
As she struggles to recover from a broken engagement, Lauren keeps busy by working full time and striving to finish her college degree. But her correspondence with K.C. quickly becomes the thing she loves most...and the source of dreams she cannot bear to relinquish.  
When the opportunity comes for them to meet after a year of corresponding, Lauren faces a tough choice: Is she willing to risk everything...including a broken heart?  
Readers will stay "on-line" to find out in this bestselling former Palisades release, now the third book in the new Glenbrooke series. 
Okay, the book did sorta give me a mini version of what has happened in the past and Lauren was engaged to a guy named Jeff. He gets laid off from his job in Nashville where they both live and where Lauren was planning the wedding. Jeff has a friend in New York who offers him a job. He decides to break up with her and he moves to New York.

Lauren's brother is what you call a "computer geek" so he gets her one. (Who in the heck, especially young people, would not have a computer?). It was her brother who told her that she could meet alot of people online. So, now we know how she met K.C. the guy she starts talking to over the internet.

They talk on the internet for a good many months. For whatever reason, she gives her name as Wren so that is all they know about each other. (just like the internet)! They talk alot about Elizabeth Browning and Robert Browning and their love of love poems and how they met.

They both loved the Browning story of love and devotion. But is that enough to hold them together if they finally meet? And how is it that Lauren knows before Kenyon (K.C.'s real name) what his name is but he doesn't know hers?
Read the book and find out! Happy Reading!
