However, the thought of an intriguing thriller got the better of me, and I did end up reading it, with some Xanax by my bedside!

This book is a quick read, yet has all the elements to make it an intriguing and riveting one. It does not go into depths of magnitude proportions, but is quite the page turner and had me up at all hours of the night in my desire to find out what happened next.

When Breath Becomes Air
