Synopsis:  
The only thing scarier than living on the edge is stepping off it.
Maggie Montgomery lives a life of adventure. Her job as a cinematographer takes her from one exotic locale to the next. When Maggie's not working, she loves to rappel off cliffs or go skydiving. Nothing frightens her.
Nothing, that is, except Ivy, Texas, where a family emergency pulls her back home to a town full of bad memories, painful secrets, and people Maggie left far behind . . . for a reason.
Forced to stay longer than she intended, Maggie finds her family a complete mess, including the niece her sister has abandoned. Ten-year-old Riley is struggling in school and out of control at home. The only person who can really handle the pint-sized troublemaker is Conner, the local vet and Ivy's most eligible bachelor. But Conner and Maggie keep butting heads--he's suspicious of her and, well, she doesn't rely on anyone but herself.
As Maggie humorously fumbles her way from one mishap to another, she realizes she's going to need to ask for help from the one person who scares her the most.
To save one little girl--and herself--can Maggie let go of her fears and just trust God?

My Review:   
Oh My, I so loved reading this book. I found myself living within the pages. Character Maggie Montgomery lived life on the edge. Growing up the way that I did, I sometimes wished that I had a more excited life. Well, reading was one way I could get lost in someone elses. And that is how this book had me feeling. 

Author Jenny B. Jones is one exciting writer. I can't wait to read more from her. She had me from the beginning until the end. 

Does character Maggie let go so she can take care of things? Does she ask for help? What scares you? Well let me tell you this, this book helped me to look at some things that I feel now may have been holding me back. As I said above from the beginning to the end I was caught up in Maggie's life. 


So due to the above, I am giving this book a Breath of Life ratings of: 

Five Clock Rating!!!  
Disclosure: I did receive this book for my honest opinion and review. But the opinions are my own and yours may differ.
