“She glared at him for a moment. Oh, he made her so mad sometimes. But then he smiled. And that smile . . . That smile was the thing dreams were made of.”
With the perfect blend of romance and suspense, award winning author Lynn H. Blackburn’s highly anticipated conclusion to her popular Dive Team Investigations series will leave readers cherishing the story long after the final page. One Final Breath is an unforgettable tale of forgiveness and grace, the power of friendship, and discovering true love. Ever since I read Beneath the Surface (book one in the series), I have been eagerly waiting for my favorite dive team member, handsome and charismatic Investigator Gabe Chavez, to get his own story. One Final Breath has been my most anticipated book of the year, and it will be on my list of top 10 books of 2019. Gabe and Anissa’s story was definitely worth the wait.
One Final Breath can be read as a stand-alone novel, but to fully appreciate the deep friendship between the dive team members and their heartwarming relationships with their significant others, it is highly recommended to read the entire series. You won’t be disappointed!
In the stunning conclusion to the Dive Team Investigations series, Investigator Gabe Chavez is determined to uncover the mystery behind the seemingly random homicide of a teenage boy. As the investigation begins, dive team captain Anissa Bell discovers a link to her past and suddenly her life is in extreme danger as she becomes the killer’s next target. As Anissa and Gabe’s relationship quickly heats up after years of animosity toward each other, Anissa’s past and present collide, leaving them in the fight for their lives.
One Final Breath is highly recommended for readers of romantic suspense, especially those who enjoy books by authors such as Dani Pettrey, Lynette Eason, Rachel Dylan, Natalie Walters, and Elizabeth Goddard. It is bittersweet to say goodbye to this incredible series and cast of characters, but I will treasure the opportunity to revisit old friends in the future as One Final Breath will enjoy a permanent spot on my keeper shelf.
*I received a complimentary copy of this book from Revell and was not required to write a positive review. All opinions expressed are mine.
“She’d been pushing him away since . . . well . . . since that first dive. She’d never met anyone like him. She knew his type. So confident. So sure. So . . . dangerous to her heart.”-->
One Final Breath is the third book in the Dive Team Investigation series by Lynn H. Blackburn.
We get to see what Gabe Chavez and Anissa Bell encounter to mend their relationship. This couple has had a very rocky start. Anissa is the Dive team captain and was not pleased when Gabe could not keep up with the training exercises because he was undercover. But the situation is about to change as their joint history is explained and Anissa’s background is revealed.
While at their team member’s and friend’s house on Lake Porter, the team hears a shot and a shout for help. In the darkness, they rescue a teen and keep a body from being lost in the lake. Quite an opening! The whole team and their friends work together to find out who killed a young man. The clues seem to go in different directions until they find a common thread in Anissa. Can they figure it out before she takes her One Final Breath?
The plot has you savoring every page for the twisty plot, the great romance and the way the author weaves spiritual threads throughout the story. The crossover bit with Brady St. John from Lynette Eason ‘s Blue Justice series was great! ( I finished reading them a few weeks ago).
This series makes Lynn Blackburn an author to watch. She conveys the story with believable and exciting situations. Her characters are not perfect but find their strength in God.

Back Cover Blurb:
Revenge has no statute of limitations
When investigator Gabe 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 aside their complicated history with each other in order to uncover the killer's identity.
