One Final Breath | Book Review


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.

Publisher: Revell
Release Date: September 3, 2019



Oh, Lynn H. Blackburn’s Dive Team Investigations series has been a pleasure to read, and One Final Breath just might be her best story yet.

Past and present collide as a series of random circumstances circle around Anissa Bell with ominous intent. It is time to confront and put to rest the memories that have haunted her for thirteen years—and perhaps, finally admit the truth of her feelings to investigator Gabe Chavez, too.

Anissa and Gabe have intrigued me from Beneath the Surface, and I am so happy to have gotten to know them better in One Final Breath. Gabe may be the clown of the dive-team group, and Anissa the stalwart, by-the-book leader, but they have plenty in common—which they find out when they are willing to risk vulnerability. I loved them, I loved their story, and I highly recommend all the Dive Team Investigations books now (be sure to read them in order so that the experience of One Final Breath is extra sweet).

Now, I really hope, for the sake of these dive-team couples, that the danger in Carrington calms down...


I received a complimentary copy of this book and the opportunity to provide an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review, and all the opinions I have expressed are my own.
