Book Review: Her Last Breath by Tracy Buchanan

Book Review: Her Last Breath by Tracy Buchanan

I picked this book up on a whim when visiting a bookstore in Worcester where they offered 3 for £5 (who would say no?!) I hadn’t heard of the author or book previously so took a gamble based on the cover and blurb.

The storyline I personally really enjoyed but thought it could have been written better. There were a few spelling errors which can be very off-putting at times and the ending wasn’t great, kind of left you hanging and was a bit “let’s get this book over with so we can start the next”

I like Tracy’s style of writing and character analysis, it did only take me 6-7 hours to finish. It is one of those books you don’t want to put down but the ending kind of killed the book for me, everything was brushed under the carpet and it was all a bit odd.

Food writer Estelle Forster has the perfect life. And with her first book on the way, it’s about to get even better.

When Estelle hears about Poppy O’Farrell’s disappearance, she assumes the girl has simply run away. But Estelle’s world crumbles when she’s sent a photo of Poppy, along with a terrifying note: I’m watching you. I know everything about you.

Estelle has no idea who’s threatening her, or how she’s connected to the missing teen, but she thinks the answers lie in the coastal town she once called home, and the past she hoped was long behind her.

Estelle knows she must do everything to find Poppy. But how far will she go to hide the truth – that her perfect life was the perfect lie?

I would say it is worth a read but I wouldn’t pay the £8.99 it currently costs on Amazon to buy it. The Kindle version is only £2.49 so I would go for that.
