Review: The Breath of Dawn by Kristen Heitzmann

About the Book

“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 Review

Kristen Heitzmann has the refined talent for examining the human condition through provocative  and complex fiction. She takes her characters to the darkest depths so that the brilliant light of hope and healing can shine in all their divine glory.

Morgan and Quinn are hiding from the shadows of their past in the depth of the Rocky Mountains were they hope the fingers of danger will not reach them. Both are breathing but neither is living, until their paths cross serendipitously and their destinies become irrevocably intertwined. With the threat of a sociopathic villain–who is cloaked in evil and disillusionment–lurking in the shadows, Morgan and Quinn are forced to sacrifice their personal exiles and risk their hearts one last time.

Breath of Dawn is an exhilarating thriller deliciously flavoured with romance and supported by a weaving storyline. The breadth of emotion and authenticity that is breathed in to these characters is finely balanced with entertainment of a captivating suspense. Many have tried but few pen suspense as well as Kristen Heitzmann. Her writing envelops a reader and allows them to enter the story from various perspectives so that they are fully immersed and invested in the outcome.

Rating: 9/10

      It all comes down to personal taste and preference. One of the reasons why I love Kristen’s writing is because it is so different from anything else you will find in inspirational fiction. If you are interested in trying out some of her books out, I strongly recommend Indivisible and Indelible. Her historical books are very good too, but her suspense are my favourite.

    Suspense is my favourite of hers, Rissi and Lydia. I adored Indelible and Indivisible too. One of my all time favourite books is Freefall. Kristen’s characterisation is always superb :)

I love to hear your thoughts!
