Publisher's Summary

Jemima Pardon, a paramedic with a daft name and chronic asthma, has never had much in the way of good luck. The only things she attracts are traumatic jobs, and no one wants to work with her for long. But when Jem bumps into devil-may-care police officer Rosie Jones, her fortunes seem to be changing. Rosie is bright and funny, and she doesn’t mind that Jem can’t go far without her inhaler.

Things are looking up, until a suspicious death draws Jem and Rosie into an investigation that spirals beyond their control. As torrential rain floods the city, they face a battle to survive if they’re ever going to have a chance at finding love.

Must-read

Good on paper, even better on audio. Nicola Victoria Vincent is marvelous! And so long as Cari Hunter keeps on writing...I’ll keep on reading her books. There’s something about her characters that makes you miss them once the book is done. Which is why I’m sure I’ll read this a third and fourth time, despite the mountain of “to-be-read” books I’ve got piling up on my various digital shelves.

Excellent!

I loved Breathe. A great story. Great mix of life on the front lines of paramedics and police. Loved Rosie and Jem. Nicola Victoria Vincent brings the story to life.

Great romance.

I was thoroughly entertained by the characters in this book. It’s a great romance with a character who’s always getting the crappy end of things and a a police officer who is there to back her up. The drama in this book is secondary to the characters’ romance but it gets resolved nicely. Definitely enjoyed this book. The narrator was clear and great about different character voices. This author never disappoints.

Nicola Victoria Vincent is wonderful

This is the fourth book by Cari Hunter that I’ve listened to, and the fourth narrated for her by Nicola Victoria Vincent. They are a wonderful combination. Cari’s writing, both the dialogue and the prose is top notch. She weaves a true STORY into every book she writes, as well as enjoyable characters, action scenes, and romances. In fact her books are so dynamic, they almost seem made to be performed on audio. And Nicola is the perfect narrator to bring it all to life.

Great book, awesome narration

Breathe was the first book I ever read by Cari Hunter, in 2019. Since then, I've listened to quite a few and Nicola Victoria Vincent's narrations are invariably fantastic.

I wrote this in my original review: The whole plot around missing teens was well thought and intriguing, the action scenes were breathtaking (Jem is not the only one who needs to remember to breathe, at times). Yet what I enjoyed most was the characters. I enjoyed meeting Rosie and Jem most of all, and laughed out loud more than once at their dialogues, but I also liked Harriet, Ferg, Jem’s dad (I wish there had been more about her mum) and both women’s colleagues, and enjoyed disliking Steph.

I loved the audiobook version as much as I loved reading the book, with the added pleasure of an excellent narration.

Just OK

The narration was very good. This was my first for this author. Story moved along at a good pace. Mostly describing emergency services involving one paramedic and one police woman. Most of the situations involved rescuing said paramedic and police woman….

Not one I will ever want to revisit.

can't t put it down!

The characters are easy to get attached to and the story and events kept me awake when I should have been sleeping. It was thrilling, exciting and one of the best books I've read/listened to in a long time. Nicola Vincent is a fantastic narrator! Can't wait to hear and read the next book by Cari Hunter.

Delightful... to say the least...

Suspense. Mystery. Adventure. Romance. Humor. A little angst. And HEA. Charming. Irresistible. The characters are fabulous. Strong sense of place. And the narration is outstanding -- Manchester accent and all. Just be prepared: the author does not "dumb down" the authentic slang/colloquialisms for Americans. ( I paused it from time to time to look them up and it didn't detract at all !) This is my first Cari Hunter book and I am obviously impressed... make that blown away.
