Shimmer by Elena Dillon Review


Shimmer is the second book in the Breathe series by Elena Dillon 
Chandler Raines and her “dad” are on the run. Never staying in one place for very long. It’s just not safe. When they arrive in Lafayette, Louisiana, Chandler quickly realizes this is the place she wants to call home. Friends, a cute boy, and competitive cheerleading have her taking dangerous risks to have the life she always wanted. Risks she promised she wouldn’t take.
When her lies catch up to her, a decision has to be made. Stay or run? Will the evil that’s chased them for the last four years catch up to them? When Chandler’s past comes screeching into the present she’ll have to sacrifice everything to keep what she loves safe. But will it be enough?

First off let me start by saying I am moving to Lafayette, Louisiana! They seem to have all of the looks and all of the charm! Confused at first as to how this story related to the Breathe (Confusing me is easily done) but at about page 50 a light bulb turned on in my brain and i figured out who everyone is. The Main characters in this story were the little children in the last. I am impressed by this creative way to continue the series. We even get a glimpse into the lives of Jasmine and other characters from Breathe.
Lilly and Caeden we have already met in the previous book and they have grown to be interesting characters. Caeden is the love interest for Chandler is perfectly bad! I don't know a sixteen year old girl that wouldn't go crazy for his good looks and bad attitude. Caeden shows his nice side everyonce in a while helping Chandler realise that Lafayette is where she wants to stay.

Shimmer has the perfect amount of Thriller and Romance throughout. The scary bits keep you excited while the romance means you cant help but root for this lovely couple to succeed. 

Another perfect story by Elena Dillon showing how life isn't always perfect!

Thanks for reading!!
