Publisher's Summary

For fans of the dark family secrets of We Were Liars and the suspense of The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer, The Breathless is a haunting tale of deeply buried secrets, forbidden love, and how far some will go to bring back what's long dead.

No one knows what really happened on the beach where Roxanne Cole's body was found, but her boyfriend, Cage, took off that night and hasn't been seen since. Until now. One year - almost to the day - from Ro's death, when he knocks on the door of Blue Gate Manor and asks where she is.

Cage has no memory of the past 12 months. According to him, Ro was alive only the day before. Ro's sister Mae wouldn't believe him, except that something's not right. Nothing's been right in the house since Ro died.

And then Mae finds the little green book. The one hidden in Ro's room. It's filled with secrets - dangerous secrets - about her family, and about Ro. And if what it says is true, then maybe, just maybe, Ro isn't lost forever.

And maybe there are secrets so dark, they should never see the light of day.

Critic Reviews

"Evocative and mysterious; The Breathless is rich with layered secrets and intertwined stories of love and loss." (Sarah Tomp, author of My Best Everything)
" The Breathless is part magic-tinged mystery, part Southern Gothic, and part romance that chills and thrills you all at once. I couldn't put it down!" (Tara Hudson, author of the Hereafter trilogy)

I couldn't put it down!

Wonderful, layered storytelling. I am still thinking about it today, and planning to read it again, because I think it will be a different story the next time I read it. Because I will be just a little different next time. No two people will experience this story in exactly the same way.

This was an amazing story for a debut author. I couldn't put it down, it was very well written and well performed.
