About this book:

  “With his last breath, a dying man whispered four stunning words into Shaley O’Connor’s ear. Shaley is reeling after two murders on the Rayne concert tour. But she has no time to rest.

My personal Rating-
Counting right on from where the first book left off, “Last Breath” had me on the edge of my seat. I did enjoy this book more than #1 due to no killings, but there was still some intense moments in this one. I’m not quite sure how I feel about the ending, I do wish there was more Spiritual Content, but for a smaller book, there was a decent amount.

See y’all on Friday with a new review!

*BFCG may (Read the review to see) recommend this book by this author. It does not mean I recommend all the books by this author.
