One Final Breath by Lynn H. Blackburn
Investigator Gabe Chavez and Dive Team Captain Anissa Bell have a complicated history. But when Anissa's fractured past collides with Gabe's investigation of a shooting, they must work together to catch the murderer before someone else dies.
'Gabe Chavez. He'd gotten under her skin for years, but lately he'd gotten inside her head.' (p. 16)
At last! Anissa Bell now considers what her friends have already recognized...she and Gabe are meant for each other but before they can concentrate on their relationship they must try to find out who killed a teenage boy and attempt to solve a crime from Anissa's past.
One Final Breath has heart-stopping action, exciting underwater adventure, and a sweet but intense romance between Anissa and Gabe. This is the final book of Lynn H. Blackburn's Dive Team Investigations series and she gives her fans the perfect conclusion. We see the two couples from the first two books enjoying their lives together and we're given the possibility of a future life for Anissa and Gabe.
I enjoyed learning more about the work of this special group of investigators and the events and situations that they handle and I wasn't grossed out by the author's descriptions, even though they are often traumatic and very dangerous activities. I could feel Anissa and Gabe's confusion about their relationship and I truly enjoyed the friendship that these six team members share. Blackburn knows how to draw us into each story that she writes and One Final Breath is no different; it is worthy of being described as a "take your breath away" book! There is hope, faith, and friendship and I recommend it to all who enjoy Christian fiction and romantic suspense.
I received a complimentary copy from the author but a positive review was never required. These are my honest thoughts.
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
