A young widow discovers her husband was not who he claimed to be—and finds herself falling in love with the wrong man.Eva has only been married for eight months when her husband, Jackson, is swept to his death while fishing. Weighed down by confusion and sorrow, Eva decides to take leave of her midwifery practice and visit Jackson’s estranged family with the hope of grieving together.
 
 
Instead, she discovers that the man she loved so deeply is not the man she thought she knew. Jackson’s father and brother reveal a dark past, exposing the lies her marriage was built upon. As Eva struggles to come to terms with the depth of Jackson’s deception, she must also confront her growing attraction to Jackson’s brother, Saul, who offers her intimacy, passion, and answers to her most troubling questions.
 
 
Will Eva be able to move forward, or will she be caught up in a romance with Saul, haunted by her husband’s past? Threading together beautiful, wild settings and suspenseful twists, A Single Breath is a gripping tale of secrets, betrayals, and new beginnings.
 
 
 

My Review

 
My first book by Lucy (audiobook) and fell in love with the narrators, Shaun Grindell (ah . . . his sexy voice - could listen to him all day and night) and sweet and soothing Fiona Hardingham. Highly recommend A Single Breath: audio version, as a gripping and suspenseful novel of secrets. 
 
 
Eva was in love with her husband Jackson, and thought she had it all until he dies in a tragic accident and she is left devastated and finds herself pregnant.
 
As she tries to deal with Jackson’s death, she travels to Tasmania to meet his estranged family; however, each day she learns more which begins to make her second guess her life with her husband. Did she really know him and was their life real? Was their life an entire lie? Who was this man? 
 
Jackson had many secrets, and a dark past which troubled him, covering up a tragic incident occurring when he was fifteen years old and continued blackmail, forcing him to make poor choices. 
 
 
As the book unfolds, hidden truths are uncovered bringing Eva closer to the truth, while being supported and loved by Jackson’s brother, Saul. An intriguing and complex story which kept me company on a beautiful day hiking trip, while being transported to this beautiful and suspenseful cliffside setting. I look forward to reading more from this passionate author.
