I have loved all of Carla Cassidy's romantic suspense books and I enjoyed the basic plot line for Last Gasp. However I did not like or appreciate the violence done to animals in this book. I wish I had known about it before purchasing because the book would've remained on the shelf.

This was my first Carla Cassidy book and more than likely my last.

While I thought the storyline was decent, the amount of graphic violence to animals totally turned me off both the book and the author. If you're an animal lover, don't even bother with this one.

I also didn't care for the author's writing style at all -- it seemed that everyone was always "exclaiming" things, but none of them were actually exclamations, or really anything more than straight sentences. I also didn't feel the characters were really developed at all -- Allison and Seth just kind of fell in love one day, Rick saw a lonely boy and took Eric under his wing, but what more did we really know about them, Michelle, or any of the other many characters? I also thought the author did a poor job wrapping up the story, as there were a number of characters we don't know what happened with, and there were characters that should've been interacting with the ending that were nowhere to be found without too much of an explanation.

Disappointing.

Last Gasp was was my introduction to the works of Carla Cassidy, and I must say, I was extremely disappointed. While the plot was interesting, her writing style was very distracting. I found her overuse (and misuse) of the word "exclaimed" to be obnoxious. The same is true of her repetition of the title throughout the story.

Also, she spent so much of the book trying to throw the reader off with red herrings that she didn't fully develop the main characters or build their relationship. It was a very difficult book to get through. I wondered if this was one of her earlier books, so immature was the writing. Unfortunately, I realized that this was her latest release, so I have little hope that any of her other books would be much better. With that in mind, this book will definitely go in the donation box, and I won't be buying anymore.

Fifteen years ago, teen Allison survived the masacre of her family. Her father was jailed for the crime and despite additional heartache, she has tried to move on with her life. But when attorney and investigator Seth Walker arrives on the scene hoping to have the case reopened because he thinks her father was railroaded, she at first wants nothing to do with him, but soon yearns to find out the truth since she still has a problem believing that her father would commit such a heinous crime. As she and Seth join forces, it is apparent that either a copycat killer has emerged, or her father was innocent after all.

Cassidy keeps readers guessing until the end with this one - the culprit is truly a surprise. But readers be warned, Cassidy holds nothing back. The crimes are particularly disturbing and might be a bit much for squeamish readers. With her uncanny ability to bring life to her characters, and contemporary dialogue that rings authentic, Cassidy continues to be an auto-buy for this reader.

I loved this story! I liked the main character, Allison, as well as her interactions with both Seth, the male lead, and her son Sam. The mystery and suspense kept me reading while the growing relationships between characters made for a nice balance. The epilogue was similar to the write ups you see at the end of a movie, giving a run down of all the major characters. This book is recommended to anyone who likes to read books in the romantic suspense genre.

I have been a Carla Cassidy fan for years and was surprised that, somehow, I had missed this book. It was great, didn't want to stop reading. Good story and excellent plot.

Almost a perfect 5. Gave it 4-1/2 stars because the pacing dragged a bit at times then rushed at the end. Overall, great mystery and suspense. The little bit of romance was backseat but pretty good. I kind wanted the epilogue to be different.

****** SPOILER****
[I gotta say I would want out of Crow's Creek, Kansas BAD and I wanted Ally & Seth to have a baby girl cause there were so many men/young men in this book. There was no mention of protection so I was hoping we'd see a pregnancy or something joyful although the dance at the prison gate was pretty fantastic/sweet. I also have a hard time believing that little town has a lot of work for a lawyer. Wanted them to start fresh in Kansas City.

This book is another reason (besides the movie Fatal Attraction) that you should never have a rabbit as a pet.

Quote: "Makes you feel all warm and fuzzy inside, doesn’t it?” Michelle said dryly. “That the boy most likely to become the next Unabomber has a crush on you?”

Very entertaining! I love her style of writing. Hopefully, more of her books will be available on kindle and Amazon.
