Review: Echo 8 by Sharon Lynn Fisher

Echo 8 Author: Sharon Lynn Fisher Reviewer: Nima Rating: A+ What I’m Talking About: I made the mistake of starting Echo 8 after ten o’clock at night.  I should know better because I’m familiar with Fisher’s previous books.  Echo 8 grabbed me from the first chapter and took me hostage.  Thankfully it’s not a super […]
