Unexpected change can be like a breath of fresh air—a little brisk at first, but magic for the body and soul.…

Sarah Moon tackles life's issues with a sharp wit in her syndicated comic strip Just Breathe. With both Sarah and her cartoon heroine undergoing fertility treatments, her fiction often reflects her reality. However, she hadn't scripted her husband's infidelity.

In the wake of her shattered marriage, Sarah flees to the coastal town in Northern California where she grew up. There, she revisits her troubling past: an emotionally distant father, the loss of her mother and an unexpected connection with Will Bonner, the high school heartthrob skewered mercilessly in her comics. But he's been through some changes himself. And just as her heart is about to reawaken, Sarah makes a most startling discovery. She's pregnant.

The winds of change have led Sarah to this surprising new beginning. All she can do is just close her eyes…and breathe.

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jamie | 2/20/2014

    " This was my first Susan Wiggs book, I loved it!!! Can't wait to read more from her! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Morgan Brunelle | 2/18/2014

    " Even though I wasn't blown away by this book, I never put it down. The characters are so simple and loveable, and the storyline a tad overused but endearing. It reminded me of Jennifer Lopez's newest movie "The Backup Plan", a romantic, satiric, comedy easy to fall into. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brooke | 2/17/2014

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jessica Gadsden | 9/1/2013

    " Part romance, and part coming of age story, Susan Wiggs Just Breathe was a quick vacation read. It was a cute story - though it lagged in parts. It's too bad newspapers are dead - because the book reminded me of how much I loved the funny papers. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Brianne | 5/15/2013

    " This was mostly about recovering from a divorce for the main character and a wife walking out on her husband and daughter for the supporting role... And I did have to skip a sex scene at the end "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Caroline | 3/22/2013

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Debra Johnson | 10/13/2011

    " Just read this one and found it to be enjoyable light reading. No thinking required! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Pat | 10/4/2011

    " I am only giving this an "Okay" because of the 1st half of the book was decent enough; BUT the last have wondered all over the place. It is too wordy; and I don't see the attraction between the main characters to make it a decent romance. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Suzie | 8/11/2011

    " Didn't learn much, but was a fast read and good story. Definitely a book to take the the beach. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Linda | 5/23/2011

    " I love her (Susan Wiggs) books. . . very easy reading, very entertaining and I guess I am a "romantic at heart" - they make me feel good. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Liticia | 5/16/2011

    " this was enjoyable from beginning to end, or in my case, from beginning-end-beginning to end. loved the characters and the themes "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melissa | 5/15/2011

    " Nice easy ready with some good humor in there. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Wendi | 5/2/2011

    " Enjoyable read. A good break from the heavy reads. I admired the main character and found it worth the break. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rachel | 4/11/2011

    " Favorite line: "No time you spent loving someone is ever wasted" "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tracy | 4/3/2011

    " A simple romance book. Not usually my cup of tea but it was good for its genre. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Leslie | 3/17/2011

    " Hadn't read this author before. Good enough story about effects of infidelity, second chances, families love wins out, etc but 469 pages, come on - we are not talking about War and Peace here. At 250 pages it might have been a decent light romance. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Erin | 3/15/2011

    " After loving each and every one of the Susan Wiggs books I have read, finishing with Marrying Daisy Bellamy, I gave this one 3 stars because it just wasn't as good as the others. It probably rates a bit higher than 3 stars if it wasn't for my disappointment when comparing it to her other books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shari | 3/7/2011

    " Honestly, until reminded, I totally forgot what this book was about. However, sometimes you need just such books to take you away - to live in the misery of someone else. Although somewhat predictable, it is a pleasant read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amy | 2/22/2011

    " Just Breathe was an emotional, sweet story from beginning to end. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeannie | 2/16/2011

    " This was an easy read with a good story. Interesting how things change from school days to adult life. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mindy | 2/5/2011

    " This book is readable and somewhat enjoyable; I do want to find out what happens to the main character, Sarah. It's a beach read, at best, but it's holding my attention for now. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Barbara | 1/16/2011

    " average story with a whole lot of blah blah blah repeated over and over. Read the first few chapters and then skip to the last few pages. You'll have the whole story. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Vivianne | 1/16/2011

    " Honestly I thought the better! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nancy | 1/15/2011

    " The story was cute, although you could see where the story was going to end up at the beginning of the book.

    "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Marie | 1/12/2011

    " Predictable and boring, however, a nice light read for the elliptical at the gym. After a failed marriage, geek girl returns to hometown and meets up with the handsome football star from high school. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Donna | 1/10/2011

    " This was a lovely book to read, with life-like people and understandable emotions. "
