“Judy Fogarty has hit the sweet spot with this captivating story of winning and losing, daring and fearing, loving and letting go.” —Nancy Brandon, author of Dunaway's Crossing and Show Me Kindness
“Breaking and Holding is a sizzling summer read that offers betrayal, suspense, romance, and even tennis. The lush coastal setting of Fogarty's novel is as inviting as her prose.” —Christina Kelly, author of Good Karma
“Breaking and Holding is heartbreaking and tragic and steamy and sweet. The author spun an incredible web for these characters. Every time I thought I knew what would happen, she took them (and us) down yet another dark and twisting path.…It was so unpredictable! Right up until the very last pages, I had no idea how things would turn out for them, which to me, is a hallmark of great suspense.” —Lauren K. Denton, author of The Hideaway
“I enjoyed reading Breaking and Holding for the love story. It was intense, romantic, and compelling, but I found myself more interested in the time frame during which it took place. From a woman’s perspective, the 1970s were a very tumultuous time, a time of introspection and growth. I took away a story of a young woman breaking free, finding her unique spirit and ultimately her truth. We should all be so blessed.” —Cindy Roesel, Emmy Award-winning broadcast journalist and author of Viewer Discretion Advised
