Too Close to Breathe
Too Close to Breathe - Olivia Kiernan

The Irish are fantastic storytellers, and Olivia Kiernan proves that she is going to be one of the best. Too Close to Breathe is the first in the Frankie Sheehan mystery/thriller series and debut novel for her. 

 

Detective Chief Superintendent Frankie Sheehan who four months earlier, was almost killed in an attack trying to apprehend a killer. When she is called to a Dublin suburb to investigate the supposed suicide of a woman, Eleanor Costello,  who is found hanging from a rope in her home. At first, it seems cut and dried and the case can be closed but after the autopsy report shows old wounds and broken bones Frankie realizes that this is not a suicide. Of course, the first suspect is the husband.

 

Another woman's body is discovered with the same MO as Eleanor's. Then Paul Costello is found and that really throws the investigation into a tailspin. Frankie is challenged with all she has to try to figure out what really happened. Frankie is a strong but flawed, a bit rough around the edges, woman who tries to take charge of her demons and keep an open mind in her investigation. With the help of her team, Frankie pulls out all the stops in this case.

 

Too Close to Breathe is a taut thriller that will have fans of Tanya French and Gillian Flynn excited to read this new author. I really loved the story and definitely want to read more from Olivia Kiernan.

I could not put this book down....I read it in one day! This book is the second in the series and Phoebe Ward's story. Phoebe fell in love with Jake Nichols when they were in foster care together. Phoebe gave up her virginity to him as a teenager only to be caught by her foster family and permanently separated from Jake. After finding out she was pregnant, Phoebe couldn't find Jake to tell him and ended up raising her son, Jamie by herself. Now, Phoebe is a realtor, and is helping her friend out with overseeing the work on her house. Imagine Phoebe's surprise when she goes to meet with the contractor and it ends up being Jake Nichols!
It has been 12 years since Phoebe has seen Jake so what does she do? She freaks out and leaves! LOL. After coming to her senses, she realizes that she has to tell Jake about Jamie but of course he finds out before she can tell him and then that's when the fun begins.

Jake of course wants to be a part of Jamie's life, but he also has to deal with his own six year old daughter Callie from his previous marriage as well as an ex-wife. It was fun watching Jake interact with Jamie and I loved all the together time. I also loved how Phoebe and Jake still had such strong feelings for each other after all those years apart and how they quickly picked things back up. I just adored both of the kids in this story. It is funny how sometimes adults can complicate things so much that kids see so matter-of-factly. I really liked how true love prevailed and Jake and Phoebe got their happy ending. This was another great addition to this series. We also get a sneak peak at the missing sister, Juliette. I can't wait for her story. It looks like it is going to be awesome too!

Great read.  Jake and phoebe are wonderful together.  They lost contact from when they were in a foster home together.  Which means Jake doesn’t know that Jamie is his son and Phoebe doesn’t know everything that went on with Jake when they lost track of each other.  Second Chance with a unknown child can you get any better then you have Carly Phillips write the book and I could not put this down.  Wonderful story characters are fantastic and I still get glimpses of Kane and Halley.  

 

I cannot wait for the next story in this series with Juliet’s story.

Breathe (Rosewood Bay, #2) by Carly Phillips
Breathe - Carly Phillips

 

The Ward sisters learned at an early age that in order survive the hard knocks of life, you have to fight your way through. Foster care taught them how to be fearless. Can facing the past that almost broke them set them free? Carly Phillips prides herself on creating women of courage. If Fearless broke the heart, Breathe uplifts the soul. Jake and Phoebe were the right people who met at the wrong time. Now adults, with more maturity under their belts and a bit more wisdom in their hearts, fate presents them with a second chance. Will the secrets of the past derail their chance at a future? Another winning hand for author Carly Phillips. Well played.
