Book Review: Breath of Dawn

About The Breath of Dawn:

"Heitzmann weaves a many-layered tale keep[ing] readers entertained and wondering when the next bit of drama will occur." -Publishers Weekly

Corporate turnaround specialist Morgan Spencer, dubbed the "success guru," has a Midas touch in business. But losing his wife sent him to the brink, and his two-year-old daughter, Livie, is all he's living for-until they encounter a woman whose trouble just might draw him out of his own.

Four years ago Quinn Reilly did the right thing. Now the man her testimony put in jail is getting out. Though she has put up barriers to protect herself and those around her, she has come to care for the Spencer family, especially the winsome Livie and her mercurial father. Unwilling to put them at risk when the threats begin, she requests something she hopes the super-successful Morgan might be able to deliver.

Fixing problems is what Morgan does best, but his counterproposal takes them in a direction neither is equipped to handle. Determined to confront the past, will they survive to build a future?

My Opinion
I usually prefer historical fiction but this modern day fiction was one of the best I have ever read!

This is a stand alone book but the characters in it are from two of her previous books "A Rush of Wings" and "The Still of the Night". After reading The Breath of Dawn, I definitely want to go back and read those other books and I highly recommend reading the first books before reading The Breath of Dawn for two reasons:

1) The characters were very interesting and have gone through quite the trials in their lives and have come out better people! I would love to read their stories and catch up on their lives!

2) Kristen Heitzmann is an AMAZING author and I want to read EVERY book that is written by her! The Breath of Dawn was so good that I bet the others are too!

This book was a little longer than most but I was so happy because I never wanted the story of Quinn and Morgan to end! I held on to every word, story and character that Kristen spun in this book and I really hope she comes out with another one that has Quinn and Morgan in it! I seriously feel like part of their lives after this book! I cheered, teared up, held my breath and so much more as I read the pages of The Breath of Dawn and it is definitely a book I will recommend to all my friends!
