Her Last Breath By Tracy Buchanan
When fifteen-year-old Poppy O’Farrell goes missing a media frenzy ensues. None of this has anything to do with lifestyle blogger Estelle Forster – so why would someone send her a picture of the missing girl and a note, claiming to know Estelle’s secrets? To find out, Estelle must return to her coastal hometown and the shameful past she thought was long behind her. A dangerous game is being played, and the answers lie in the impenetrable community Estelle once called her own.
Tracy is back with another gripping story, a story that spans over many years filled with old loves and suspicious characters.
In this book, we meet Estelle Forester, a successful blogger who has just hit the big time with the release of her new recipe book, as well as that, she’s settled down in a successful relationship with Seb, a handsome and successful sportsman.
For many years, Estelle, has ran from her past, a troubled childhood moving from foster homes before finally finding solace with Autumn and her husband Max and their two children, Aiden and Alice, who’s life tragically came to a sudden end.
Just as Estelle’s career about to take off, a teenage girl suddenly disappears and Estelle is thrown back to her past not only emotionally but also physically as she returns home after disappearing many years ago.
As Estelle finally faces up to her past and addresses many old ghosts that she never properly laid to rest. But as much as Estelle wants to hide her far from perfect childhood from her fans, someone is haunting her, reminding her off the mistakes that she committed and what she needs to take responsibility for.
The story is quite fast paced and is not only seen from the perspective of Estelle, but from the person who is threatening her. Their entries in the story are quite vague but gripping, engaging the reader completely along the way, as they try to figure out the identity of the person who is making Estelle face up to her past, as well as rediscover somethings along the way.
Estelle is a lovely character, she’s quite troubled and haunted from her past and her memories are quite distorted but with the help of her foster parents, the bubbly and vivacious Autumn and flamboyant Max, they are able to help put the pieces together.
A thrilling and suspenseful story from start to finish, ‘Her Last Breath’ is an addictive story with fascinating characters and a chilling ending that will leave the reader shocked.
