Jasmine’s life wasn’t normal for a 16 year old girl. It hadn’t been normal since the murder of her older sister, Daisy, two years ago. Her life had been changed forever. The monster that murdered Daisy was never caught. That was the reason her family decided to move away from their hometown in Southern California, to start over. Hopefully in a place where the last name Rourke wouldn’t bring on staring or judgment or morbid curiosity.
In Lafayette, Louisiana things are quite a bit different but in a good way. Good manners, Cajun accents and a whole lot of Southern Hospitality all make her think things are going in the right direction. On top of that the most gorgeous boy she has ever met is interested in her. Her new friends are better than she could have hoped for even if she is worried about what they might think when they find out who she is. Life would be perfect if odd things didn’t keep happening. Creepy phone calls, texts, and flowers in her locker start adding up quickly to something terrifying. Could the Monster have followed them to Lafayette? Was he coming after her this time? Maybe she was just worrying unnecessarily…or not.
Reviews of Breathe:
“I think this is the first YA, thriller, suspense that I’ve ever read and let me say, Dillon has hit a homerun with it. She nailed the voices of the teens and I loved the interaction of Jasmine and her younger siblings. This was a book that I stayed up way too late to finish and boy was I glad I did. Can’t wait to read the sequel Shimmer.”
“Great quick read that really gets your attention quickly and holds it throughout the entire story. This is a mix of suspense with a cute love story twist. You will form an attachment with the characters quickly and get pulled into their lives. This is a must read and a great price!”
“Could. Not. Put. This. Down…”
