The Story

After a tragedy nearly ripped 21 year old Madeline Darlington-Gray’s life in half, she’s spent the past three years trying to put the pieces back together. But pieces never just fit back together, and when she’s betrayed by those she trusts, everything crumbles. Shoving everything she owns into the trunk of her car, Maddie drives south, trying to run from her past.

Eno, North Carolina seems like the perfect place to hide. Working at a local café is light years from Maddie’s Manhattan existence and for the first time in a while, she’s finding her family. There’s Grandma, the café owner; Samantha, the hairstylist next door with plans to make Maddie’s life unsuck and Noie, the three year old girl who’s stolen Maddie’s heart.

And then there’s Gabriel Mendez, Noie’s single dad. He’s intrigued Maddie since the first time she met him, and while he has his own secrets, he wants more from her than just friendship. But the past never stays past, and all too soon, Maddie realizes she can’t hide from hers. If she can’t put the pieces of her shattered life together this time, she’ll have no hope for a future.

A future she desperately wants.

What I Thought

You know that feeling you get when you read a Nicholas Sparks novel? Yep that was the same thing I felt after reading this one. It was good. Really good.

Maddie has not had the best life, but she has decided it is time to put her life back together. And she is working on it. In North Carolina (can I tell you that Eno is not far at all from me?)

I fell into Heart Breaths and just loved the story. The writing and tale that Heart Breaths tells is gorgeous. It pulls you in to the point that you just flow along with the story and find yourself involved. I felt myself part of Eno and pulling of this couple (and totally charmed by Noie!)

This book is a great debut and I can’t wait to see what Hendin has in the future!
