I might be a tad obsessed with this series. I read the print version, but I couldn’t help snagging the audio as well. I first fell in love with this series on audio and the way Cris Dukehart voices all my favorite characters and the story.

Save Your Breath is the sixth of the Morgan Dane series which work best read in order so the character and relationship development that anchor the stories makes sense even as each mystery is a standalone.

In the latest, we finally get to see that sizzling attraction between Lance’s private investigation business boss and mentor, Lincoln Sharp, and the clever and competent investigative journalist, Olivia Cruz, take the limelight. Unfortunately, this is achieved by Olivia being kidnapped just before she can release her latest story that has her bothered.

Lincoln is beside himself at her disappearance and is joined by Morgan and Lance to get on the trail of facts that leaves them all cold with fear for Olivia’s life.

I enjoy how this author can ratchet up the suspense and make each case feel desperate and dark even while inserting into the mad race to save someone the every day love and life of her characters. And, beyond that, I love that all the characters on the investigation team are smart about how they do things. Morgan is a defense attorney, but she has training with weapons and self-defense because she comes from a family of cops. She isn’t stupid about proving herself and racing off into danger which helps Lance treat her like a true equal partner on their cases.

This one kept me wondering as to who was behind it all and why. I knew better than to leap to the obvious solution because the author is great about twisting things. It was a shock to me who was behind it, but, of course, the clues were there.

So, my listening experience with the Morgan Dane world was fab as usual and I’m always disappointed when the end comes, but that very end was just the thing to leave me smiling.

 Cris Dukehart was stellar as usual. She takes an already strong story and enhances it so it becomes an even better experience with the book. She has a good husky voice for the men and doesn’t go too feminine on these tough women like Olivia, Morgan, and Morgan’s sister. Love her work.
