Try not to breathe

Review copy provided via NetGallery in exchange for an honest review

Some secrets never die. They're just locked away.

Alex Dale is lost. Destructive habits have cost her a marriage and a journalism career. All she has left is her routine: a morning run until her body aches, then a few hours of forgettable work before the past grabs hold and drags her down. Every day is treading water, every night is drowning. Until Alex discovers Amy Stevenson. Amy Stevenson, who was just another girl from a nearby town until the day she was found after a merciless assault. Amy Stevenson, who has been in a coma for fifteen years, forgotten by the world. Who, unbeknownst to her doctors, remains locked inside her body, conscious but paralyzed, reliving the past.

Soon Alex's routine includes visiting hours at the hospital, then interviews with the original suspects in the attack. But what starts as a reporter's story becomes a personal obsession. How do you solve a crime when the only witness lived, but cannot tell the tale? Unable to tear herself away from uncovering the unspeakable truth, Alex realizes she's not just chasing a story—she's seeking salvation.


It’s been a few days since I finished this book; I had to think on how I was going to write this review.   You see I’ve been known to dabble with writing and wrote Fan Fiction for a few years and one of my stories I wrote in the same format changing the POV each chapter always telling who’s POV and people hated it because of the change each chapter…   I remember all the negative remarks I got and it hurt.  With that said. This story is a WOW it keeps you on your toes and you can’t stop reading until you’ve finished cause you’ve just got to find out is Alex going to be alright, is Amy going to get any better.  Will Jacob and Fiona going to fix their marriage in time for the birth of their baby.

There are so many different things going on, but each chapter is a smooth transition to the next and the over all flow is spot on. I didn’t find two many errors just one. I read the adobe digital edition and so on page 142… “I told Any(AMY) that I was getting married the next week and that I’d always love her but that it wasn’t right for me to keep seeing her as often as I did.  It was an easy one to miss and I forgive the Author and her Editors.


Would you recommend this book to others? YES

Would I read other books by this Author? YES

Is this a Novel or Novella? Novel

Is this book priced correctly? Hardback yes Paperback no I never pay more than 12.99 for a paper back.. Kindle way over priced.  I live on a budget and I stick to it and not over spend on books. I’m so pleased I got to read this book for free, cause it’s worth my time.
