Overview

With Her Last Breath by Cait London

Don't Look Back . . .

Maggie Chantel is running from memories too painful — and frightening — to acknowledge. And the small, peaceful town of Blanchefleur on the shores of Lake Michigan is where her running stops. Maggie just wants to be left alone to forget, but her new neighbor Nick Alessandro is paying her far too much attention. A survivor of soul-shattering tragedy, Nick is fascinated by this beautiful, secretive woman — an interest that is slowly turning from attraction to love.

But someone waiting in the shadows is determined that Maggie will love no one ever again. The nightmare she was escaping has found her hiding place, and people in the sleepy Michigan community are starting to die. Maggie knows what her hunter is capable of, and now she must leave behind the man who was bringing her back to life, for his own safety. Nick is determined never to lose the only person who can make his world whole again. And he knows he has to find the killer — before the killer gets to Maggie.

This book is not only thrilling and suspenseful, but it also takes the reader on a trip to where you could be if you were in that particular position. This has the point of view of several people, but mainly the two main characters, NICK and MAGGIE.

This is the second time I have tried a Cait London book. I was sorely disappointed the first time but thought I would try another just in case I picked up one of her lesser books the first time. Unfortunately I had not. Like the first time this example was scatterbrained and ran into tangents of random events and storylines without nearly sufficient enough exposition. The primary characters werent likable and relationships went from shallow to life changing without any explanation. I have no problem with suspension of disbelief but London requires you to throw it out the door completely to stay with this story, and the dialog was absurd to the point of laughable. This is the last time I will waste my money on one of London's books, and I recommend the same to any reader who requires even a semblance of story telling ability in their authors.

I couldn't decide if I should buy this book. I picked it up read the back flap - it sounded good but wasn't sure so I put it back. I went back to the book store and decided to get it and boy was I glad I did. It was exciting, fast-paced and suspenseful. Maggied was great - loved her independence and strength. I loved the Alessandro family. The only criticism is the ending with Brent. I was expecting more of a fight - it just seem so easy. I definitely recommend this book.

The man ruined and then killed her sister Glenda before trying to rape her. Her spouse Ryan refused to believe Maggie choosing to go with his business associate Brent Templeton as being totally in the right and demanded she apologize. When she refused he divorced her. Stunned and needing a change Maggie steals the hunting dog Scout from the SOB whom assaulted her and flees from the San Francisco area into the night still seeking revenge against Brent.

One year later in Blanchefleur, Michigan, Maggie and Scout meet widower Nick Alessandro and his extended family. She feels safe within the Alessandro brood and she and Nick fall in love. However, Brent knows she has made progress in her effort to bring him down and he is coming to finish the job even if it mans killing an Alessandro if any get in his way.

Though the bad guys are cartoon types with the prime villain offering no positive qualities and his ¿helpers¿ seemingly more like incest mistakes, WITH HER LAST BREATH is an exhilarating second chance romantic suspense. The story line moves quickly forward from the moment that Maggie and Scout become buddies. The lead couple is an enchanting pair struggling to overcome the past, and along with his family, make this fine tale something that readers will value.

Maggie Chantel had been running from her pain-filled past for a year when she finally decided to stop. She chose a small Lake Michigan tourist community called Blanchefleur to settle. It was the perfect spot to overcome her fear of water, begin a new career, and start her life anew. All she needed for love and company was Scout, her Labrador Retriever. .......... But the small town was filled with a large, Italian family named the Alessandros. Almost everyone was related and they looked out for each other. Noticing Maggie vulnerability, though she would hit anyone who dared call her vulnerable or weak, they took her under their wings. No matter how wary Maggie felt or how much she resisted, Maggie came to care for the huge family and several of the locals. ............ Nick Alessandro was a survivor of tragedy and felt indifferent toward women until Maggie entered his life. He could not help but be drawn to her though. He had no idea what she was hiding in her past, but wanted to help her through it. But Maggie's past was catching up to her. Someone had been hunting her for a year and people in her small town were beginning to die. ........... ***** Romance and suspense blend together to give you this exciting story guaranteed to make your pulse race, one way or another. It grabs you on page one and never lets go. I recommend this title highly!
