    One thought on “Learning to Breathe”

    1. Well-crafted spiritual journeyThis is less a romance, I think, and more of an agnostic/atheist searching for meaning or purpose (or non-meaning) in life after the death of a loved one. The "god talk" isn't heavy-handed. I felt like people of faith and no faith were treated well--the book didn't feel like it had an agenda, it was more an exploration of one woman trying to find a way past her anger, guilt and shame. Bree has strong negative feelings against God (and specifically Christianity & [...]

    2. Five Platypires for you, Glen Coco!Five Platypires for you, Glen Coco!Great Scott @ Platypire ReviewsWhat can I say about this book besides I loved it! Lopez has such a way with words that she made me pause to ponder what she had just written. Over and over again. The plot is one that I've read it before, but it was anything but predictable. Even when I knew what was going to happen, she still threw me off. Each page with a treasure, and it makes me sad that I'll never experience it for the firs [...]

    3. I don't think I could say enough wonderful things about this book. I don't want to give any spoilers, because I think this type of book is best read if you go in blind and just hang on for the ride!This isn't your typical romance novel, but it is soooo romantic. The romance-plot line is semi-taboo, and it's not something I've ever seen done before, but it's done incredibly well here. I think my favorite part of the book is the characters. They felt so real and fleshed out. They aren't perfect, t [...]

    4. This was such a good read! Realistic, multidimensional characters; beautiful writing; and I especially loved how uncliched this story was--we have a grieving protagonist who's just lost her fiancé months before the wedding, but there's so much more to her grief. There's an underlying guilt that is strong enough to keep her from moving on with her life. Ms. Lopez writes Bree's emotions so deftly, and the same is true for the unconventional romance and situation the protagonist finds herself in. [...]

    5. I got to read an early version of this book and fell in love with it. This is a fantastic read for those who love to read about the journey of a character. Add in a splash of romance, some guilt, some soul-searching and you have the perfect read. You will laugh, you'll cry.Basically, Bree is in a tough position where her fiancé dies but not everyone was aware of what was going on in the relationship between the two of them before the fiancé died. Add in a wonderful future broth-in-law and what [...]
