Publisher's Description

When a young woman stumbles out of the Hanalei Mountains on the island of Kauai with no memory of who she is or how she got there, Cameron Pierce reluctantly agrees to investigate the mysterious circumstances surrounding her arrival. As pieces begin to fall into place, he suspects her injuries were no accident, but he's far from convinced she's an innocent victim. And there's that nagging feeling he's seen her somewhere before....
Now known as Jade, the woman begins to recall fragments of what led her to this place, and she realizes the danger isn't over. Jade and the cynical Hawaiian investigator attempt to reconstruct the threads of her identity, but the stakes are far higher than either expected.

Author Bio

KRISTEN HEITZMANN is a full-time writer and the bestselling author of fifteen novels. She and her husband, Jim, and their family serve as worship leaders in their church. They live in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Visit

Imagine a fear, a notion, so intense that you know you need to run. Imagine dragging yourself instinctively through dangerous mountains and treacherous waters to safety, not sure of where you are. Now imagine that not only do you not know where you are, but who you are. In Kristen Heitzmann’s Freefall, Jade, later identified as the newly risen star, Gentry Fox, encounters these exact thoughts, feelings, and experiences.
Freefall will capture readers with its intensity, honesty, and believability. Heitzmann emphasizes the importance of these attributes throughout her novel. Her use of Gentry’s traumatic memory loss as a tool to lead us through every page, to give us important glimpses into the story, is phenomenal. A simple anecdote or experience tells us everything necessary about Gentry and her relationships with those around her.
The relation of one character to another deeply impacts the plotline as a whole. (It is evident that Heitzmann understood the importance of character bonding when she wrote Freefall.) Cameron, “Kai,” and Gentry develop such a natural and connected relationship, overcoming their past and present, that we could easily meet them at the restaurant down the road or the church on the corner. The detail so meticulously put into every character and every scene allows us to identify with, and truly understand, the characters Heitzmann has brought to life.
When Gentry Fox awakens in the mountains of Kauai, she has no idea who she is. She experiences severe pain, and she knows nothing beyond her need for safety. In order to find that safety, she walks with determination to the nearest home, which belongs to a Hawaiian local named Monica. When Monica sees this downtrodden young woman approaching her yard, she fears that once again someone has come to her to find peace but then will pass on to a better life. Despite this fear, she lets Gentry in, and she calls her brother, a fraud investigator, to help identify her. With the presence of Cameron comes some of Gentry’s memory; at first, just enough for her to remember that she was not traveling alone. In time, more and more of her memories open up. As they reveal themselves and events unfold, Gentry realizes that someone was out to kill her uncle, whether or not she was in the line of fire.
The reality of the characters throughout Freefall adds an element of closeness, a bond with the readers. The bond allows readers to view Cameron, Gentry, Monica, and all of the other characters as personal friends—not as fictional people only existing on paper. Heitzmann uses flaws and setbacks that we are all familiar with in our own lives to help us relate to the characters’ lives. They have broken hearts, broken families, and even broken bodies. The characters experience and overcome real issues, through which they encourage others to do the same.
Kristen Heitzmann will engage your heart, mind, and spirit with this well-written novel. A blend of drama, mystery, romance, and humor, Freefall satisfies the yearnings of many different types of readers. Whether folks read avidly or infrequently, for education or entertainment, all will be swept away by this incredible book. – Heather Nash, Christian Book

    Published in 2006 this book is, in a word, mesmerizing. A layered tale of truth and deceit and how they affect relationship. The suspense is enthralling...from the moment Jade staggers out of the jungle until the final resolution, Heitzmann expertly weaves an intriguing mix of clues around a heart-stirring romance. And, oh my, is it ever complicated! She breathes life into her characters. They are realistically flawed, plagued by unique insecurities that motivate their actions for good...or evil. I especially love the depth of connection to God seen in different characters. They don't always get it right but they keep trying. An uplifting and captivating read that I inhaled in one day.

    And just because I can totally relate to this line from the book I feel the need to share: "...while he didn't look for God's hand in everything, he paid attention when it slapped him in the face." (p.141)

    This review was written for Freefall - eBook.
    This is a hard review to write. The only other book I have read by this author was Edge of Recall. I loved that book, so when I read this was a romantic suspense I couldn't wait to read it. Although I think Kristen Heitzmann is an excellent author, I could not get thrilled about this book. The book really only consisted of about 40 pages of suspense. It read more like a soap opera. 5 or 6 weeks in the lives of 10 or so people. I could actually skip 8 pages and not miss a thing. The book was mostly conversation between people and that cannot hold me to a book. It was very east to put down and just pick back up whenever. I wasn't glued to the book. Like I said, she writes well, she just wrote too much in this case.

    Brilliant metaphor throughout

    We all experience them. Mountaintop experiences - those times in our lives when everything is at its peak, everything fits, everything clicks, our faith is at an all-time high. And then, inevitably, it happens. A hard and unexpected blow knocks us from the summit and down we fall, not knowing when we'll land or if we'll come out with faith still alive.

    For the mysterious beauty dubbed "Jade," this isn't just a metaphor. Knocked into a state of amnesia at the base of a Hawaiian waterfall, all she can remember is a compelling urge to survive, to follow the life-giving stream of water no matter how treacherous it may seem. But then _ there is another force that compels her, a different source of life-giving water. A need to call out to a Divine Savior whom she senses she somehow knows intimately. In her search to re-discover who she is, will Jade possibly revitalize a strong faith that had begun to fall?

    Or is her life, as fraud investigator Cameron Pierce initially suspects, just one big lie? Could she be a con artist who can't remember her last target? Maybe that would explain her aversion to seeking police help _

    Yet Cameron's opinion of her seems to shift as steadily as the waves of the sea. And maybe, just maybe, she was sent to bring him out of his own freefall.

    This is the first book I've read from Kristen Heitzmann, and I must say, it won't be the last. Her snappy wit and breathtaking descriptions along with a knack at weaving in new plot twists amidst the romance and intrigue will keep you turning pages.
