Save Your Breath (Morgan Dane #6) by Melinda Leigh
Published September 17th 2019 by Montlake Romance
I put off reading this book for a bit as it is the last in the Morgan Dane series. I have thoroughly enjoyed all the books in this romantic suspense/crime/PI mystery series. Morgan Dane is the main character but over the series many more have been added. This book has Olivia Cruz, a crime reporter we met in a previous book, missing. Lincoln Sharp, Olivia’s boyfriend is planning on finding her, even if he has to break the law to do it. Lance, Morgan’s fiancé, plans to help his boss stay out of trouble and help find Olivia. Searching Olivia’s house and computer, they find out that she is investigating two cases, both that might be able to file appeals. Are either of these cases the clue to her disappearance? Will they find Olivia alive?
This book starts off with a bang and pulled me in right away. I was on the edge of my seat trying to figure out who had Olivia and why. Every clue, every trail that Morgan, Lance and Lincoln unearthed seemed to end in a dead end. As the story moved forward, there was that fear that Olivia might not have anymore time. Melinda Leigh knows how to keep you on the edge of your seat and turning the pages when you should be doing something else. Not only is there a mystery, but she still manages to integrate the personal lives of the characters in a way that feels realistic. I am sad that this series is ending as I loved these characters, but I know that Melinda Leigh will have a new series with amazing new characters coming soon enough. I definitely recommend this book and series to anyone who enjoys romantic suspense, as well as mysteries and crime stories. The publisher generously provided me with a copy of this book upon request. The rating, ideas and opinions shared are my own.
