Publisher's Summary

Sixteen-year-old Leocadia arrives home from school to find her mom's bloody body. Unaware that the killer still lingers, she rushes to her mother's side, only to be grabbed from behind and then everything fades to black. 

After a year of retrograde amnesia and battling personal demons, Leo's dreams are getting worse - she's starting to remember. More bodies are discovered, and they seem to be oddly linked to her mom's unsolved homicide. When Leo allows her friend, Henry, to drag her into the haunted Lucien Mansion, misty ghosts appear, ghosts that just might lead to her mother's murderer. 

Will Leo let her memories threaten her into a relapse or, will she fight to find her mother's killer - only to become his next victim?

Captivating mystery

This is a captivating, well narrated story that kept me interested to the very end. Leocadia is a traumatized teenager who is trying to get her life back together after stumbling onto her mothers murder. Almost a year later she still has retrograde amnesia but her memory is coming back in bits and pieces and she is starting to win her battle to stay off the drugs she used to escape her nightmares. Leo's friend, Henry has his own demons, and when they are witness to two murders while parting in a graveyard, things start to heat up. Combine this with creepy and ghostly happenings in an abandoned mansion the teens explore, and Leo's world is once again shaken to its core. The characters in this book were complex, interesting and well portrayed by the narrator; Leo is a flawed but appealing character, you can not help but sympathize with and care about her. Her two love interests are totally contrasting characters, one a clean, caring hunk and the other a flawed, angry, loner. Although I am not keen on love triangles, this one works very well in this book, adding tension, intrigue and interest to the plot. This was a fast paced enjoyable mystery with suspense, romance and a hint of ghosts. I received this audiobook at no cost in exchange for an honest review.

Not what I expected

Have you listened to any of Caitlin Kelly’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I've listened to this narrator before and absolutely love her work.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

The ending was quite a shocker.

Any additional comments?

Nicely Twisted up Mystery with a Sweet Romance

Narration, Caitlin Kelly - Really Good. She has a terrific narration voice and handled a pretty large number of unique characters in this book.

This was a really terrific book.
You've no doubt read the blurb, so I won't rehash that. I will start by saying this is NOT a love triangle - yes, there are three characters that are involved, but Leocadia (Leo) wants Beckett, Beckett wants Leo but Henry wants Leo too, so he does all he can to try to sabotage Beckett and Leo. But - as I said...not a traditional triangle. Leo never wanted Henry and I don't feel like she ever led him to believe otherwise. She was team Beckett from the beginning.

Leo is a chocolate mess but we start the book when she is finally starting to come out of her funk. She's kinda dysfunctional at times, makes some really bad choices and she's the least cheerful cheerleader you'll ever meet.

She befriends Henry - so... Henry! I can't decide what Henry is. At times I thought he was a psycho and other times I felt a little sorry for him and maybe thought there was a sweet boy somewhere inside there. At the end of the book, I'm still trying to figure out if he was bad to the core or if he really was trying to be good.

Beckett is the school jock, but he seems to be sweet and in the end, one of my favorite characters in the book.

There's quite an elaborate mystery to this book as Leo tries to find her mother's killer. I kinda thought I had it figured out one minute and thought it was someone else the next. Overall I thought it was a well written, nicely twisted up mystery with a sweet romance.

Just really enjoyed this!

UNBELIEVABLE THRILLER!,

If you could sum up Don't Forget to Breathe in three words, what would they be?

GET IT NOW!

Any additional comments?

I hung on every word, heart raced with each new page and every chapter leaving me begging for more!
Imagine not knowing what happen on what was the most horrific day of your life! That is what happen to Leocadia.
The plot thickens as more un-explainable occurrences pile up. Want to know more?
Okay so here it is in a nut shell… GET IT NOW! You won’t be disappointed!

Lovin' It!

If you could sum up Don't Forget to Breathe in three words, what would they be?

Excellent. Edgy. Stimulating.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Don't Forget to Breathe?

One of the most memorable moments of the book is when Leo confronts Regina about Leo's father's alibi.

What about Caitlin Kelly’s performance did you like?

Cailtin's voice fits perfectly for Don't Forget to Breath.She has a distinct voice for each character and makes the book come alive with excitement.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Murder, and it's aftermath.

Any additional comments?

I love this book; after the tragic murder of her mother, Leo attempts to figure out what happened to her mother. It would be difficult for anyone to handle the murder of anyone in their family, but for a child or teen to deal with it... it would be much harder to deal with. Cathrina, the author, provides a good look at how one family struggles to deal with it.

Five stars, need I say more?

Don't Forget To Breathe, my first read from author Cathrina Constantine. I was given an Audible copy of this book and I'm voluntarily reading & reviewing it because every author's book needs reviews. An enjoyable book that sweeps you up & carries you away. I have to admit there were times I sped up the playback I wanted to get through it so fast. Caitlin Kelly's talented narration ads to the enjoyment. The gifting of this book did not affect my opinion of it. I look forward to reading more from this author! (RIP Marley January 20, 2014 - July 24, 2018).

Edge of my seat!

An Amazing story that held me captive until the very end! This is a definite edge of your seat listen. The characters..well I loved to hate them. Ha ha Not all! Some were perfect either in their kindness or their nastiness. But the main character Leo…many times I wanted her to get her head out and move on! Granted this takes place in the high school era so ..you know hormones and mood fluctuations are running rampant. But she frustrated me with her interest in guys who are busy with other ladies.

What I loved about this most is the “who did it” that follows most of the story. I never figured it out and to me those are the BEST stories! Weaved perfectly!

I did listen to this on audio. Caitlin Kelly did a wonderful job narrating. She had a multitude of voices to do and she rocked it!

Very Enjoyable!

The cover of the book got my attention and after a quick glance at the storyline and the length of the audiobook, I thought I'd give it a try. I failed to consider it was a YA, which I am normally not a fan of, so that being said I started off being wary as soon as I realized, but the author was great at capturing my interest in the opening story. I felt each character was fully developed so no matter who Leocadia was spending time with, I was curious and enjoyed the anticipation of knowing something was going to happen to bring a thrill. The author did not fail to deliver. The narrator had a range of characters to do and she did great to deliver with a cadence that allowed me to listen, follow, and become absorbed in the story. I enjoyed Leo's character and even her name was cool. The storyline was really interesting with the mystery of her mother, and the haunting of the mansion, and then the drama of the teens telling lies and stretching the truth out of competition or jealousy...that part I normally give a bored sigh to, but it was done well here and I found myself anxious to know the end result! The two male characters were each strongly developed and kept me guessing easily. A very nice mystery and thriller. I will look at other books by this author :-)

Slow start...it picks up

The story starts out very slow and takes awhile to suck you in. It does pick up so, stick with it!! The ending is worth it!! The narrator does a good job.

I was provided a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

A really good plot that kept me guessing

This book really kept me guessing all of the way through until the reveal - I loved the intertwining of the main plot and the characters’ everyday lives too. The narration was also great at bringing the characters to life.

Breathe

Caitlin Kelly narration was perfect for this book.


Sixteen-year-old Leocadia comes home to find her mother's dead body and without thinking rushes to her mother's side. She is then grabbed by an unknown person. That's all she remembers. After she grows up, she goes to the haunted Lucien Mansion. Will she find the answers she is looking.

This book has it all...romance, mystery, suspense.

Nothing like a haunted house in a small town to get you thinking. Wonderful mystery!

Captivating story

Somehow I kept expecting mythical monsters to be part of this storyline. The writer keeps you guessing until the end. I really enjoyed the plot and the complicated characters. The story is easy to follow and listen to. The narration is good.

Who can she trust?!?

Any additional comments?

This audiobook was provided by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review courtesy of Audiobook Blast.

The start of this book opens up in a graveyard with a male friend who I thought was going to rape Leo from the start. It was quite unsettling and the fact she remained friends with him and put me at a bit of unease. This introduction ruined the book a little for me but nevertheless I continued listening. And then there was casual references to alcohol and drugs throughout which put a further dampener on the book - what did they contribute to the story?

Despite these flaws, the characters in the book were well developed and believable. The narration was 10/10, and the story line itself was interesting, with basically everyone as a suspect, i just had to know who the killer was.
