Review of Grave Echos by Erin Cole

Grave Echoes: A Kate Waters MysteryGrave Echoes: A Kate Waters Mystery by Erin Cole
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I won this book through Goodreads first-reads contest. I couldn't wait to start it. The cover is very well done and peeked my interest immediately.
The story starts out with Kate Waters having a narcoleptic nightmare in which she sees a wreck and hears her sister call out to her.
Kate is use to the nightmares but this is the first time they repeat and feature someone she knows....her sister Jev. As troubling as that is, there is a more pressing problem to handle. Kate is a geologist at the USGS and Mt. Hood is showing all the signs of erupting.
While trying to handle a possible volcanic eruption in the outskirts of Portland Or., Kate finds out Jev has been evolved in a fatal accident. She is left with the key from her visions and the unsettling realization that her sister was a witch in a local coven.
She now needs to find out exactly what happened to her sister, before she is the next in line to have an "accident". But who can she trust, everyone around her seems to be hiding something.
The story catches you up fast. There were a few editorial mistakes in the beginning that sidetracked my attention, but not for long.
This is a fast paced story that keeps you reading to see what happens next. I am very seldom surprised by a mystery anymore. I usually have it figured out before the end. Not so this one. It took me by surprise, but at the same time I could see how the story lead up to that conclusion.
