The Breath Of Dawn by Kristen Heitmann, Book review & Giveaway

Publisher: Bethany House Publishers
ISBN-13: 978-0764210426


Morgan Spencer has had just about all he can take of life. Following the tragic death of his wife, Jill, he retreats to his brother's Rocky Mountain ranch to heal and focus on the care of his infant daughter, Olivia. Two years later, Morgan begins to make plans to return to his home in Santa Barbara to pick up the pieces of his life and career.

Quinn Riley has been avoiding her past for four years. Standing up for the truth has forced her into a life of fear and isolation. After a "chance" first meeting and a Thanksgiving snowstorm, Quinn is drawn into the Spencer family's warm and loving world, and she begins to believe she might find freedom in their friendship.

The man Quinn helped put behind bars has recently been released, however, and she fears her past will endanger the entire Spencer family. As the danger heightens, she determines to leave town for the sake of the people who have come to mean so much to her.

Fixing problems is what Morgan Spencer does best, and he is not willing to let Quinn run away, possibly into the clutches of a man bent on revenge. But Morgan's solution sends him and Quinn on an unexpected path, with repercussions neither could have anticipated.

My thoughts:

'The Breath Of Dawn' is my first novel by Kristen Heitzmann and quite an adventure! 
Fast paced with intricate twists guaranteed to keep you guessing! I honestly held my breath (no pun intended) more than once but a very good choice for reading. 
This is a richly woven plot with well described characters and good biblical and spiritual teachings throughout! A page turner for sure!

Morgan Spencer can only be described as a man going nowhere fast. The only thing going for him is his two year old daughter. 
On the other end we meet Quinn Reilly (love that first name), hiding from her family and friends due to a past she would rather forget. 
Then a series of events brings these two lost souls together and life takes a totally different direction...
Their lives entangle as events unfold but along with a growing attraction deadly threats arise. 
Morgan and Quinn soon discover life and God have more to offer than their wildest wishes!

An excitedly well written novel which I found totally gripping and well worth a 5 Stars rating!
