A Reader's Opinion: ECHO OF DANGER by Marta Perry

Updated: Feb 4, 2020


ECHO OF DANGER by Marta Perry takes the reader into Pennsylvania Dutch country for a suspenseful and romantic ride. The author writes with vivid detail and made me feel like I was there in Echo Falls with Deidre, Jase, and the other characters. Deidre is battling with her father-in-law over where she should live with her young son. The man is powerful and dangerous to their delicate way of life after Deidre's husband's passing. She has to be strong, but that isn't made easy when Jase Glassman enters the picture. His job might have been to spy on Deidre but it doesn't take long before he realizes he's on the wrong side. When a threat to Deirdre and her son put them in danger, Jase is willing to risk everything to keep them safe.

Marta Perry kept the story moving along and all I wanted to do was keep turning the pages. I love how the author kept the book clean but still created great romantic tension. This is the first book I've read by Marta Perry and it won't be the last.

In peaceful Pennsylvania Dutch country, a young mother discovers a shocking danger—and an unexpected ally.

A whisper of a threat looms over widow Deidre Morris. She and her young son have unwittingly become prisoners of her intimidating father-in-law's power. One wrong step could find her son torn from her and in the hands of the influential judge. But when Deidre collides with an intriguing stranger, the prospect of a new friendship gives her renewed hope…until a devastating murder rocks the quiet community of Echo Falls and Deidre learns first impressions can't be trusted.

Attorney Jase Glassman's assignment is straightforward: befriend Deidre, gather incriminating evidence…and allow her dogged father-in-law to take custody of her child. Anything else, including losing himself in her honest charm, will compromise the job he was hired to do. Yet when a murderer ushers danger into the town, Jase's only instinct is to protect Deidre and her son—no matter the sacrifice.
