Now facing a hostile takeover, the firm’s origins are challenged when new facts emerge about Adele’s actions on the night Tita...more
The mystery aspect of the book was terrific. The characters were interesting, and even though I would NOT pick up a book about investment companies (bleh!), the storyline/mystery/plot/business aspect was very captivating. The whole tie-in with the Titanic was wonderful and was what kept me turning pages late into the night.
However, the book became suddenly religious (Christian), and that was NOT fun to read at all. I rolled m...more
Review on my blog: http://christianbookshelfreviews.blog...
I have read many of Mindy Starns Clark's suspense books and loved most of them, but unfortunately, Echoes of Titanic wasn't that great to me. I found myself easily bored throughout most of the novel (although it did get better later on in the story) and sometimes thought there were too many details.
I did like the mystery, though, of who really survived from the sinking of...more
Will the past destroy Kelsey's future?
This was a book that was well written and expertly intertwined the past and the present, with a century old mystery. This wasn't quite what I expected, and there was very little in the book that had to actually do with the Titanic.
I had a really hard time reading this book, it had nothing to do with the way it was written or anything like that, but I found most of the book had to do with the world of Wall Street, with stocks and bonds, something t...more

The person in the present is the great granddaughter of the woman who survives the Titanic. While complex sounding this story is woven to engross the...more

The writing was quite amateur and unpolished. The dialogue was awkward, with characters saying things like "he's such kook" and "Hey Bro." The love story was totally predictable and over-the-top syrupy and the protagonist and her love interest were physically perfectly gorgeous, wearing just the right clothes and make up.
The syrupy insertion of Christianese and dramatic return to faith was boring and predictable. For example, the grandfather character was too...more
