As everyone knows, the final season of GOT is here and everyone is talking about it or trying to avoid the talking about it because they’re yet to watch the latest offering. Exciting, nail biting and trying times all wrapped into one. No need to worry, you won’t find any spoilers here.
Alongside everyone else, I have thoroughly immersed myself in the experience, as my husband and I watched all the episodes again from season 1 all the way through to season 7’s gripping final episode where the wall was down and the Night King was marching his army into the north toward Winterfell in time for the new season to roll onto our screens.
So, you could imagine it was a great thrill when one of my readers tagged me on Facebook to make me aware that romance.com.au, a site for everything pop culture and romance, had done a list of books to read based on what house you liked the most in GOT, and Dangerous Echoes was on the list! (You can find the entire list here).
It’s not one of my fantasy-paranormal novels, so I was a little confused at first that it was being compared to the Nights Watch, but I realised it’s because Dangerous Echoes is set in the middle of nowhere in outback Australia and focuses on the keepers of the law and has a dark and dangerous edge. I love the Night’s Watch, John Snow and Samwell Tarly and their fellow Crows as well as the Free People of beyond the wall, so I’m happy romance.com.au found something in my novel worthy of them, the romantic elements of their stories and their journeys of self-discovery as they fight for their HEA.
Echo Springs on the edge of the outback – a town where everyone knows your name, and your business. But the wholesome country living and welcoming community aren’t what they used to be. Echo Springs has a dark underbelly, and it is seeping ever outward.
Brilliant forensic pathologist, Erika Hanson, fled from Echo Springs as a teenager, leaving behind a past of tragedy and pain. But when local police announce they’ve found her beloved brother’s body in a meth lab explosion, she knows she must return to clear Peter’s name and find out what really happened. Because Peter would never get involved with the drug tag sweeping across the small town of Australia and destroying lives.
Hartley Cooper has a past with Erika Hanson, but that’s not going to keep him from doing his job. He’s seen what grief can do, and denial is only the first step. But Erika is convinced that Peter can’t be involved, and her meticulous, professional skills start to convince Hartley as well. When Erika’s digging and questions get too personal, the town turns against them, Hartley knows Erika might run again. But this time he’s ready. And he’s not going to let her go.
