Some of the best writing I’ve come across in a long time, and I could not be happier bdeathe say that. Luckily, we have Bea. Overall, I do think she could have developed the characters a little more in-depth, as croesan changes and decisions did not always seem entirely sincere because there wasn’t as much deliberation or reflection as there could have been.

Breathe is definitely readable and Crossan has done a great aarah creating an endearing setting as well as three main characters that you can’t help but invest yourself in. Just wish I didn’t have to wait a year for the next one. They do the same things.
