This is the first time reading anything by Rita Herron. For fans of romantic/supernatural suspense reads, give A Breath Away a try. You won¿t be disappointed. The book had interesting and well developed characters. It was full of mystery and secrets. I recommend the book. I will be adding more Rita Herron books to my library.

This book was the first one I read of Rita Herron's book now I can't get enough of her. After finishing A Breath Away I had to read another so I gathered as many as I could of her books. But if you really want a great romance-suspence book to read this would be the one! ! ! !

This book is such a beautiful read!The innocence of Violet,the masculinity of Grady,the twisted and dimented mind of 'The Bone Whistler'.It all so beautifully entwines together to create one of, if not the most beautiful story I've ever read!I give it a million and five stars!

Everything in this book worked for me and worked well. I was caught up in the story and the characters. The plot kept me guessing til the end. I didn't want to put it down...and you won't either.

In Crow¿s Landing, Tennessee eight years old Violet Baker considers Darlene Monroe her best friend. When Violet envisions someone assaulting Darlene, she turns to her father to help her pal, but instead he sends her away to live with relatives. Darlene is murdered and Violet feels she failed her friend................... Two decades later Violet returns to Crow¿s Landing because she has been seeing things that she feels will solve the cold case murder of Darlene. Local Sheriff Grady Monroe, Darlene¿s half-brother, wants Violet to leave because he somewhat blames her for his sibling¿s homicide and does not trust her ¿second sense¿; deep in his heart he also fears his attraction to Violet. As she begins to follow her visions, he needs to protect her from someone who targets her as his victim not so much to keep his secrets hidden, but because of an obsession................................ A BREATH AWAY is a terrific supernatural police procedural romance. Violet is an interesting protagonist as she sees visions, suffers guilt over failing her best friend though she was only a child at the time and falls in love with someone who seemingly wants her to leave town because he blames her for his sister¿s death. Grady knows he is unfair to hold Violet culpable, but cannot help himself. Falling in love with her feels right but comes with guilt. Though the motive of the killer appears weak, readers will appreciate this tense romantic suspense propelled by the lead duo...................... Harriet Klausner
