The Last Breath by Kimberly Belle



The Last Breathe will be released, September 20, 2014

Gia Andrews has reluctantly returned home to care for her ailing father who has been released from prison to die at home. It has been sixteen years since he was tried and convicted of brutally murdering his wife. He has been adamant about his innocence and Gia and her siblings are forced to be face to face with the man whom they believe killed their step-mother. A man they have abandoned and no longer trust.

His arrival will test family bonds and the town will be divided. In an effort to prove her father's innocence, Gia begins an investigation that will reveal long ago buried secrets.When, Jake the town bartender and Gia's love interest enters the picture, life becomes a bit more bearable and complicated. Everyone has their own secrets and as they are revealed a major shake down will occur changing the lives of everyone.

Belle switches back and forth effortlessly in past and present time to tell her story. It's a story of intrigue and suspense. Nothing is as it seems. This is an emotionally charged read, full of well developed characters. The book starts off with a bang and slows down but I promise once you plow through those slower parts and the story unravels you will be happy you took the time to  read it.

Grade: A-
