Echoes by Robin Jones Gunn

Book Description:  Will Lauren risk losing her a man she's never met? 

Lauren Phillips tries to keep busy while recovering from a broken engagement. Then one day, through her home computer, Lauren accidentally connects on the Internet with a mysterious man she knows only as K.C. Lauren's e-mail relationship with K.C. quickly becomes the thing she loves most in life..and the source of dreams she cannot bear to relinquish. After a year of corresponding, the opportunity appears for them to meet. Lauren faces a tough choice: Is she willing to risk everything...including another broken heart?

My Review:  Having read all the Sisterchick books by Robin Jones Gunn I, somehow, missed reading this book from the Glenbrook series.  I love the way this book reads.  Of course, Robin Jones Gunn has a way with words and they just seem to flow like a well oiled machine.
Lauren is a likable young lady and has a heart of gold.  She does seem to wind up in a "tight" spot every now and then.  "Things" just happen when Lauren is around.
After a much needed break up with her current boyfriend her brother gets her a computer and teaches her to use the web.  She begins, quite by accident, to compute with an unknown man, KC (Robin does emphatically write to the reader in the back of the book not to take up talking with unknowns on the internet).
The story has a lot of "realisms" and the reader can relate  to Lauren (mainly because a lot of us are like Lauren).
This definitely chick lit at its best!  
Great read for a wintry day!
