Litfuse Publicity: "The Breath of Dawn" by Kristen Heitzmann Book Review

“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?
Kristen Heitzmann is the bestselling author of over a dozen novels, including "Freefall", "Halos", "A Rush of Wings", and the Christy Award winner "Secrets". She and her husband, Jim, and their family live in Colorado Springs, Colorado, where she serves as worship leader in their church. Visit for more.
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This is one of those books whose story was better than the actual writing of the story.  I love the premise behind it.  It is no sappy romance, and it even has a bit of mystery to it.  It is clean and promotes Christian principles, but I have to say it falls short in this area--at least in my opinion.  There is nothing inappropriate in the book, but I felt it sometimes pushed the limits.

As I read this book, I found myself growing intrigued at points, but about the time I got interested, I found my interest waning.  I'm not sure what it was, but I found myself not always being able to connect with the characters.  I loved the fact that love and romance were not instantaneous.  I was most intrigued by Markham.  You have to read the story to find out about him.  I just felt it was like a roller coaster ride at time with its highs and lows.

If you are looking for a clean, inspirational romance with a bit of a twist, this book may just be the thing for you.

I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.  I was not financially compensated, and all opinions are 100 percent mine.
