One year later in Blanchefleur, Michigan, Maggie and Scout meet widower Nick Alessandro and his extended family. She feels safe within the Alessandro brood and she and Nick fall in love. However, Brent knows she has made progress in her effort to bring him down and he is coming to finish the job even if it mans killing an Alessandro if any get in his way.

Though the bad guys are cartoon types with the prime villain offering no positive qualities and his “helpers” seemingly more like incest mistakes, WITH HER LAST BREATH is an exhilarating second chance romantic suspense. The story line moves quickly forward from the moment that Maggie and Scout become buddies. The lead couple is an enchanting pair struggling to overcome the past, and along with his family, make this fine tale something that readers will value.
