echoes glenbrook series 3 by robin jones gunn
Laurn and her boyfriend have called off the marriage. Her brother gives her a computer and she

Somedays she's really a klutz and things happen throughout this novel that find her in situations

Good to catch up with others in Glenbrook, love this series.
Love the explanation of how the book got it's name, priceless! ( )

Review: I really enjoyed this book and series. I was not sure about this particular title when I first picked it up. I hemmed and hawed about reading it. Once I started it I was sorry that I waited so long. Since I read the books out of order I was already familiar with the main characters. They were a great mix and contrast in story line from the other books in the series which made it a good ongoing series and single. There is no need to read them in sequence or you can just read one of them. Although once you read one you are going to want to know how the other stories come about. Lauren and KC are more common today than when this story was written, I think and that is what makes this more timeless. ( )

A very quick enjoyable read, read in one afternoon. Reminded me of "You Got Mail". When the story begins Lauren is engaged to Jeff, and it appeared to me immediately that it was a one sided relationship. I was happy when it ended!
When Lauren's brother Brad brings her a computer, this book was originally published back in 1996. He sets her up with email, and a shows her a chat room. So begins a new internet relationship with KC.
When a year passes with this unseen friend they decide to meet. Her friends are aghast, he could be an axe murderer. She cancels!!
We travel with Lauren through this period of time in her life, she finishes her degree. She has reestablished her relationship with God, and keeps him close now.
Will these two unknown to one another, ever meet? Will they ever get beyond cyber tea, Irish Breakfast Tea?
This is a sweet, sometimes funny read, and hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

I received this book from Multnomah Blogging For Books Program, and was not required to give a positive review. ( )

Soon, she has a chance to meet KC, but will her fear of getting hurt stop her?
This book is delightfully romantic with very cute humor and comes easy to relate to. However, although the characters seem well developed in the ways of personality, in actual features, they are lacking greatly.
This book was a great addition to my tea time and I enjoyed it greatly. ( )

Love this book. Love the characters, the premise which is so different from the usual girl meets guy book. In fact, we dont' meet the hero of the book in person until near the end of the book but that doesn't stop the romance from coming through loud and clear. And their face-to-face meeting is well worth the wait. ( )
