Breathe by Cari Hunter


This book turned out to be an unexpected treasure. The back cover blurb just doesn’t do justice to the way the story is written and narrated.

Jemima (Jem) Pardon is a paramedic in the rapid response arm of the services. She is selfless about her work but seems to attract the most complicated situations. So much so that most of her partners choose out because of high stress. On an assignment, she meets Rosie Jones, a police officer. The two women find a comfortable connection as they haul a bridegroom dangling mid-air in some bachelor party misadventure. They bump into each other again on another case. First texting and then meeting for a coffee, their relationship grows smoothly through tough cases.

The setting and the situations in the book are grim. But that is the environment that the two women work in. Jem and Rosie are both lovely, their relationship is precious and their conversations are so much fun. The book is as much relationship (not simply romance…it is a well developed relationship) as it is crime. The characterisations are excellent and the conflict, when it comes, is not forced.

Definitely recommended.
