One Final Breath ~ Review

One Final Breath
Dive Team Investigations #3
By Lynn H. Blackburn

What can I say other than this was a really great read. Well, I guess I could say more than that and I will. First off this book is the third in the Dive Team Investigations series and this time the focus is on Detective Gabe Chavez and the Dive Team Captain Anissa Bell and their rather complex working relationship.

When a shooting on Lake Porter claims the life of a teenager and leaves a devastated survivor behind Anissa and Gabe's pasts raise their heads in regards to this case. Gabe because of the links to his blown undercover career and Anissa because of her own survivor's guilt. But the timing of the shooting leaves little evidence and leads are in short supply. As lead investigator Gabe is determined that this is one case that won't go cold.

Soon the team is faced with two cases one that seems to be a personal threat against Anissa that places more than one team member in danger. The more they look for a reason or a suspect the more everything seems to point to Anissa's past but could this case have a bearing on their current shooting as well?

Without giving anything away I will say the perpetrator is extremely determined and very vengeful. Definitely not the type of person to tick off. And believe me, you most definitely won't guess who is behind what is going on. The intensity grows as the story progresses and there is no dragging that detracts from the pacing. Fans of Lynette Eason's work and her Blue Justice series will enjoy a quick appearance once again from Detective Brady St. John. One doesn't have to read the previous two books in this series before reading this one but it does help with understanding references to previous events if you read the series in order.

This is fairly clean reading with a touch of violence (murder isn't too clean) but the romance is completely clean reading in this Romantic Suspense. Would make a good book club selection that would have a wide range of appeal satisfying the often varied tastes of a group's readers. This is a page-turner that will keep you reading long into the night.

I was provided a complimentary copy of this book by the publisher with no expectations but that I provide my honest opinion, All thoughts expressed are my own.

About the Book:
Revenge has no statute of limitations...

When investigator Gabriel Chavez had his cover blown by an aggressive reporter, the silver lining was being able to rejoin the dive team. The downside? Dive team captain Anissa Bell—a woman who both fascinates and frustrates him.

Anissa grew up as a missionary kid on the Micronesian island of Yap and always planned to return after college. But she remained stateside, determined to solve the case that haunts her—the murder of her best friend and the disappearance of a three-year-old child.

When Anissa’s fractured past collides with Gabe’s investigation into the tragic shooting death of a teenage boy in Lake Porter, they’ll have to put their complicated history with each other aside in order to uncover the identity of a killer.
