I am not sure where Gundenkauf gets her ideas but I am glad that she puts pen to paper and get theses stories out into the world. ONE BREATH AWAY is a gripping tale told from several points of view giving you a story with depth, suspense and perspective. I absolutely loved this novel. It touched on one of my greatest fears, my child's school being invaded by an intruder. I devoured this novel to see how it would end. Gundenkauf created genius with this novel, it is quickly paced containing shorter chapters and has a very concise and tight story line. I rate it 5 stars and HIGHLY recommend it.
