Book Review: Rush of Wings by Kristen Heitzmann

A Rush of Wings by Kristen Heitzmann is a contemporary romance mixed with mystery and intrigue.
Noelle St. Claire flees her affluent life with her father and fiancée and seeks refuge in the Rocky Mountains.
She is frequently haunted my memories and dreams of a hawk swooping down at her, but does not know why she is having these terrifying memories as well as other terrifying thoughts that she is unsure of their source.
She finds herself attracted to the two brothers at the ranch where she is staying. One is a charming yet troubled businessman, the other, a rugged rancher.
Yet as soon as anyone tries to get close, Noelle panics in terror and can not explain her reasons.
Through all this Noelle is in a constant battle against the faith that the rancher exhibits in his life and wishes for her to share. For some reason, the thought of God fills Noelle with fear. Was anything in her life really as it seemed?
This was a good book, though it began a bit slow for me. Eventually, the story line pulled me in and I enjoyed the mystery and growing romance between Noelle and one of the brothers. It did have some Catholic overtones which does not follow my beliefs, however, there is a strong emphasis on having a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
If I were to give it stars-I would give it four out of five.
I received a free copy of this book for the purpose of review.
