Diane's Review ~ One Breath After Another by Bethany-Kris

 

One Breath After Another (The After Another Trilogy, #2)One Breath After Another by Bethany-Kris
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Where it all began…

This second in the trilogy was about going back to when it all began for them. Penny and Luca’s past laid out in its stark simplicity. Penny’s life with Luca’s sister, Luca’s tentative friendship with her. How it came to be, what it was. The beginning…

This author knows how to understate and imply and this instalment was all about that. Penny’s mindset, her feelings for the family who took her in. For Luca. For the past that didn’t let her go. Luca’s smile set the tone of their relationship and its quiet beginnings…

Filling in the blanks, adding more context to what shaped the characters, this was about going back to the (almost) beginning… I always struggle with a story that jumps back and forth on the timeline yet the emotions and struggles were heart-tuggingly real, no matter when they happened… Can’t wait for the final read to bring the past and present back together again…
