One Final Breath by Lynn H Blackburn

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. What they’ll discover is that revenge has no statute of limitations.

Award-winning author Lynn H. Blackburn closes out her nail-biting Dive Team Investigations series with a story that will have you wondering how long you can hold your breath.

my thoughts

This group of characters nails the #squadgoals! (I will share a list of my favorite fictional friend groups soon!) I want to move to the shores of Lake Porter and befriend these wonderful fictional people!!

Gabe and Anissa have the best banter! Their relationship is packed with complexities from the workplace to being friends of dating friends to their individually reluctant stance on romance. Gabe’s tender heart wrapped in a workaholic get-it-done mentality is completely endearing. He’s an underdog hero who infuses life with humor. Anissa has pit-bull tenacity, compassion, and mad dive skills to boot! Her loyalty, strength, and faith make her a top-notch investigator and friend.

Blackburn has created a perfect balance of suspense, romance, and authentic faith elements in this story! I’ve completely fallen in love with these characters and look forward to revisiting them in future rereads! I highly recommend the Dive Team Investigations series!

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher and was under no obligation to post a review. The opinions expressed are my own.
