Love her!!

I am a huge fan of heather Gudenkauf, mainly as she is also from Iowa but she writes great books! This one had me guessing from beginning to end. Will continue reading her books

I held my breath!

The story unfolds in a very unique way, and had a conclusion that I didn't see coming! Having worked in a school, I could relate to this. Highly recommended reading.

Emotional Read

One Breath Away By Heather Gudenkauf šŸ“˜šŸ“™ šŸ“š My Review šŸ“š šŸ“™ šŸ“˜ Oh how I love to read Heather Gudenkauf's books. She is an amazing storyteller, writing stories that are so vivid and real that I get lost in her books and tune out the world around me. ONE BREATH AWAY caught my attention from page 1 and is every parents worst nightmare. It had me holding my breath several times. There is plenty of action, and suspense in this book. This story was so well written and i loved all of the characters. They are all so likable. Well, except for the gunman. On the last day before Spring break with a huge snow storm starting A gunman walks into a school in the very small town of Broken Branch.And Not everyone will survive. The story is told from several different viewpoints. * That of Meg Barrett (the police officer) *Augie and PJ( Hollys kids ) *Will Thwait,(the grandpa of Augie and PJ and the father of Holly ) * Holly ( Mom of Augie and PJ, who is in a Arizona hospital for severe burns after a fire *Mrs. Oliver ( PJs teacher) Most of the time i dont like books with so many different view points. But in this case it was perfect ! You have a chance to learn about what each character was feeling and thinking. I really enjoyed Gudenkauf's writing style,and short chapters. I did however guess a few chapters before it was revealed who the gunman was but not why he was holding a school full of kids and teachers hostage. This is a must read book! Fascinating,emotional, and a page turner that will have you up way into the night. I loved it !

Amazing author

This book is amazing! The author keeps you on edge from page one. It tells of every parents worst nightmare, your child is in danger and there is nothing you can do. I have read a few of Heather Gudenkauf's books and she never disappoints.
