Have I mentioned my husband put me on a book-buying budget? And that he instituted said budget when my daughter and I were perusing a used bookstore?
Considering my husband may is the most generous man I know, considering he takes me shopping routinely (yes, ladies, my man enjoys shopping with me! I know, I know–a real life hero.), that fact says a lot. About my book addiction.
When I share my schedule, numerous people have wondered how I find the time to read. If that strikes you as a completely irrational statement, then this post is for you. 😉

Here’s a bit about the novel:
A hurricane forces Jacqueline to evacuate, and her need for purpose and restitution propel her north to her estranged and embittered daughter and into the arms of a handsome new friend. However, he’s dealing with issues of his own, including a potential conspiracy at work that could cost him everything, and Jacqueline’s not sure she’ll be able to lean on him in the difficult days ahead. Then there are the three orphans to consider, especially Gavin. Must she relinquish her chance at having love to find restitution and embrace her purpose?

What readers and reviewers have to say about the novel:
“Jennifer Slattery’s second novel is a moving, powerful story. … I found myself laughing out loud one minute and one chapter later feeling heartbreak. I was drawn into the lives of these characters and found myself caring about each one. … This book is very well-written. It includes a romance but the greater love story in the book might surprise you.” ~ Susan Aken, writer and Novel Reviews reviewer.
“I loved this second novel by Jennifer Slattery! God’s hope, love, and grace resonate throughout her stories. No matter what we are going through, no matter our past, God can use us and our circumstances.” ~ Reviewer, Must Love to Read.
“This book is truly an amazing bit of writing, keeping characters in such different circumstances feeling real. … When Dawn Breaks is heart-wrench-gripping with exchanges of love coming from several different angles. Jennifer Slattery writes depth into romance. Here love means more than he-meets-she.
I laughed at myself, the reader, when at the end I felt I had seen and survived all aspects of Hurricane Gita; and then I remembered it was fictional. Convincing read!” ~ Harold Wolf, Amazon Reviewer
“This is the second book by this author that I have read and reviewed, and I must say she is fast becoming a favorite. When Dawn Breaks is an enjoyable read that I hesitated to put down, but did only because I had to, or work and chores would not have gotten done. I thoroughly enjoy Jennifer Slattery’s style of writing and the stories she weaves. Very unique. What makes her stories seem so relatable are that her hero and heroine are not perfect plastic people. Not that they aren’t attractive, but one character will notice something oddly unattractive about the other, such as hairy toes. … If you like authentic characters, unique plots and writing style, you’ll want to read When Dawn Breaks.” ~ Deb Piccurreli, Amazon reader.
