Haunted Echo

Sun, fun, and her toes in the sand. That’s what Zoey Christopher expects when she joins her best friend and fellow cheerleader Becca on an exotic Caribbean vacation. What she finds instead is a wannabe boyfriend, a voodoo doll, and Tempy – a tormented young ghost whose past is linked to the island grounds.

Zoey has always seen visions of the future, but when she arrives at St. Anthony’s Island to vacation among the jet set, she has her first encounter with a bona fide ghost. Forced to uncover the secret behind the girl’s untimely death, Zoey quickly realizes that trying to solve the case will place her in mortal danger. Shaken and confused by a menacing threat and by her budding feelings for the too-cute, too-nice Chris, will Zoey find a way to survive this vacation and put Tempy to rest?



“Haunted Echo is a fun exploration of the psychic & paranormal worlds that will have you hooked from the first chapter! Love, ghosts, an island …. who could want for more??”

“Get psyched for this paranormal adventure with Zoey Christopher and friends! When she’s invited to go along with fellow cheerleader, Becca, to the Moretti family’s Caribbean Island cottage, Zoey’s psychic powers don’t go ‘on vacation.’ In fact, they are stronger than ever. ‘Tween readers will enjoy the mystery, suspense, action, adventure—and even romance—in this well-crafted story.”

“A little intrigue, a little mischief, a little romance … and a whole lot to cheer about! Haunted Echo is a fun and fast-paced read!”

“If you are in the mood for a little bit of spookiness and a whole lot of fun, Janet McLaughlin’s Haunted Echo is sure to be a teen crowd-pleaser. The dialogue is witty and the story line unique. I normally shy away from stories that scare me, but this book is more mystery and less horror. I would describe it as a ‘Ghost Whisperer’ for teens with clean romance and a plot that will have you second-guessing where it is headed. With its simplistic writing, you’ll breeze through this read in one sitting – just make sure it’s not too late at night, or you might give yourself a little scare.”

“I love a good ghost story, no matter what age it’s written for, and author Janet McLaughlin has created a great one with her new book, Haunted Echo. Zoey and Becca are funny and smart, the setting is spooky, and the plot keeps you guessing until the end. I couldn’t put it down!”

“I loved this book. So you know how a book is wonderful? When you put it down, yet you wish you could read through it without breaking. I became attached to Zoey … what a great character. She experiences troubles most teens don’t with being psychic, but I love that she has this power. I can’t wait to read the next! Def recommend!”
