Just Breathe is a story of love lost and love found of coming of age of feeling out of place and finding that place it's the love story of comic strip writer Sarah Moon and Fire chief Will Bonner who knew each other as kids where Sarah was the misfit and Will was the all American boy. It's about being able to come home again and it finally feeling like home. It's about families and friends. We first meet Sarah in Ms. Wiggs last book The Inn at Willow Lake where she makes an appearance with her then husband Jack when the story picks up Sarah is heading home to California after the breakup of her marriage only to still feel like the misfit who left when she graduated high school, she unexpectedly meets Will again when he's summoned to take her to the ER after a fainting spell. I won't tell you any more just that you have to read it.

Susan Wiggs is one of my favorite authors. The story in 'Just Breathe' was very believable and heart-warming. Sarah and Will are wonderful characters and each brings their own life's twists for the reader to enjoy. Even thought Sarah's first husband is not what she thought he was and it seems true that women will put up with more in a marriage than men, Susan Wiggs does her usual job of making us look at people and their feelings.

This was the first book I have read of Susan Wiggs and I could not put it down. The characters in this book was so belivable and you wanted to know what happenes to them. I would love it if there was a second book picking up this store! The only bad thing with this book was it ended. This is a great book to curl up and read anytime.

This boook surprisingly took my interest since I'm a picky reader and now Just Breathe is one of my favorites. I highly recommend it for any woman who enjoys reading a romantic story, because this book will definitely make you say, "Awh" and make you wish you belonged in this world where even though things don't work out at first, everything ends up perfect in your life.

If you like to read romance, this is one for today. A real human interest study. Sarah and Will are so human. This is the first book to make me cry in a long time. Wonderful book.

In Chicago, Sarah Moon loves her husband of five years Jack Daly. She enjoys her work writing the comic strip Just Breathe whose star Shirl reflects much of the idiosyncrasies Sarah sees in life but unlike Sarah Shirl often confronts the hypocrisy. Sarah has been undergoing infertility treatment until she came home and saw Jack, who had been struggling to get it up with her, naked and up with his ¿horsy¿ business associate. --- She leaves heading home to Glenmuir, California while having Shirl represent her frustrations with men, divorce and being in your thirties while living under your mom¿s roof. Ironically, Sarah is pregnant and even more sardonic, she and fire chief Will Bonner, a single father, are friends. He was her enemy in high school while his daughter Aurora is her teen replica of loneliness and angst from when she was in high school and, who already has mom issues exponentially compounded by her father and the cartoonist falling in love. --- Susan Wiggs shows her greatness with this terrific second chance at love tale as she combines humor with the Shirl comic strip at the start of each chapter with deep angst laden relationship issues. The story line is obviously character driven by the lead couple and Aurora but what makes this so good is the reader will cry and laugh with the lead trip throughout. Ms. Wiggs provides a superb family drama filled with love. --- Harriet Klausner

Usually like authors books but this one rambled. Did not like any of the characters except for grandma and aunt may, the twins. Wished more have been written about them, they were a hoot.

This book deserves 5 stars - it has great characters, engaging dialogue and realistic plotlines. The reason I am downgrading is the abundance of typos. The publishers/editors of this book should be ashamed. Most of the typos could have been eliminated through simple spellcheck. The fact that they got through is nothing short of laziness. Why are so many publisher-produced books these days so riddled with typos? Have the proofers all been fired to cut costs? If so, you are doing your authors no favors. Ms. Wiggs has written a wonderful book but your inattention to detail has done a disservice to her efforts.

This was a really good story. Very slow to start, the entire first half was hard to get through but ended up being really good.

I truly enjoyed this book and, unlike one of the previous reviewers, did not find it a slow read at all; on the contrary, I was enthusiastic to get back to the story to see what realistic turn of events would happen next. I felt it was an accurate portrayal of a woman going through the circumstances Sarah was, and found it fascinating to see single step-fatherhood from Will's perspective. Overall a very enjoyable, lifelike novel with that easy to read with the warm detailed charaters Susan Wiggs fans have come to love. Highly reccomend!

This story has great characters, but aside from the initial big conflict that breaks up a marriage, the rest of the story is long and slow. Yes, there is character development. Yes, there is a romance developing. But you get the feeling that Wiggs can't bear to put her characters through too much. The hero is in an explosion, but escapes with barely a scratch. His daughter runs away and is about to get pulled into a very bad scene, but no, she leaves and dad is right there. I think it could have been a great story, but ended up just being okay.

When Sarah Moon walks in to find her husband with someone else, she flees from Chicago back home to California. There she reconnects with Will Bonner, high school crush, and her family who she distanced herself from since college. She also reflects on her marriage, the fertility treatments she was undergoing to save the marriage, and how cancer almost took her husband from her. She deals with the loss of her mother, and with her childhood insecurities. This was more of a women's fiction with romantic elements than a straight romance. I've always loved Wiggs' writing style. She writes with eloquence and grace so rarely seen nowadays. She's not afraid to cross the line, nor tear at your heartstrings. The setting was just superb, making you feel right there in the scene. The romance didn't really develop until halfway through the book, and I kept waiting for it so Sarah could be happy again, at least with someone who deserved her. Will was lovable and relatable. The secondary characters really made this book pop-- the grandma, aunt, father, and Will's stepdaughter. However, I'm very upset with the back cover blurb. For those who haven't read the story, the back cover text essentially gave away the entire plot and conclusion. I felt like there were no surprises to discover. Alas, a good read.

A good read book with ups and downs of married life. Story of woman who depended and trusted her husband explicidly not realizing that he played her for a fool. Story of recovery and new love and step child relations.
