The Breathless by Tara Goedjen book review



No one knows what really happened on the beach where Roxanne Cole’s body was found, but her boyfriend, Cage, took off that night and hasn’t been seen since. Until now. One year—almost to the day—from Ro’s death, when he knocks on the door of Blue Gate Manor and asks where she is. Cage has no memory of the past twelve months. According to him, Ro was alive only the day before. Ro’s sister Mae wouldn’t believe him, except that something’s not right. Nothing’s been right in the house since Ro died. And then Mae finds the little green book. The one hidden in Ro’s room. It’s filled with secrets—dangerous secrets—about her family, and about Ro. And if what it says is true, then maybe, just maybe, Ro isn’t lost forever. And maybe there are secrets better left to the dead.


This book was actually pretty good. Now before I go into my review I want to say if you check out this book read it going in knowing its YA and not adult. I found the characters in this book to rather interesting. They were intriguing and each one added their own layer to the story. The plot while being very YA was still well written and did not feel drug out. I would have like more surprises to this story though. I felt as though things were a little predictable. This is my first book by this author and i’s still like to see more, as I did love the writing and found it well done and very interesting. Tara definitely has a knack for this kind of story. 4 stars from me.
