Book Review: Breath of Dawn


Breath of Dawn written by Kristen Heitzmann 

This is the third book of one of my favorite (didn't know it was a) series (but so glad it was). This third book holds it's own among the three books, and I could not tell you, if I had to, which one is my favorite. They are all amazing.

While it could be read as a stand-alone, the entire series is so good, I would recommend starting in the beginning of the series with "Rush of Wings" and then "The Still of Night"  

Book Description (From the Back of the Book): 

"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?" 

Truthfully after minutes into starting the book, I thought, uh-huh, I am not going to like this book AT ALL! However, within the first two chapters, I was just as in to this book as I was the first two. 

I fell in love with the original characters Noelle and the Spencer Brothers from the first two books, but my favorite was always, Morgan. This book primarily follows his story-line along with "new girl" Quinn Reilly.  

Quinn, is a little quirky (in my opinion) but super lovable. With her past interwoven throughout the book, it's fun to get to know her over time, and to fall in love with her character the same way Heitzmann has drawn us to the other's in this series. 

At the risk of saying too much, I have to say I love the purity of the book, even though romantic relationships have been a part of each book, I appreciate the fact that Heitzmann is so careful not to cross a line of purity. Keeping God and the spiritual struggles of each characters throughout the stories makes the characters seem even more real and adds a depth to them that I enjoy reading.
