The Breathe of Dawn

Author: Kristen Heitzmann
Publisher: Bethany House
November 2012
ISBN:  978-0764210426
Genre: Romantic suspense

Morgan Spencer is a Corporate turnaround specialist, aka “the success guru” and has a Midas touch in business. But losing his beloved wife, Jill, soon after the death of their daughter, he goes over the edge. All Morgan has left is his daughter, Livie. He goes to live with his brother, Rick, and his wife, Noelle, hoping for time to recover. But two years later, he’s still grieving.

Quinn Reilly disappeared after she put a man in jail. Now, he’s getting out, and swearing to make her pay. Quinn sells things online, and has recently acquired a house full of contents to dispose of. The house—oddly enough—is built on an asylum that had never been cleared out adding a creepiness to the job.

When Morgan buys the house, he meets the energetic Quinn and despite himself is attracted. But then the threats against her life begins. What will it take for her to survive long enough for them to build a future?

THE BREATH OF DAWN is a kind of epilogue to Ms. Heitzmann’s other romantic suspense books, A Rush of Wings and In the Still of Night. I didn’t realize this at first, and I kept feeling I knew Morgan, Jill, Noelle, and Rick, but I couldn’t figure out why until I looked back at Ms. Heitzmann’s previous books. I enjoyed getting reconnected with these characters and finding out how their lives changed since I read about them prior.

THE BREATH OF DAWN started out kind of slow and kind of sad, but by the second chapter my interest was piqued. I had an idea how things might play out, and in some ways, it did as I predicted, and in other ways there were some surprises. I did enjoy THE BREATH OF DAWN a lot and I recommend it, but I think you will want to read A Rush of Wings and In the Still of Night first to fill in the characters histories. Recommended. $14.99. 448 pages.

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?
