Quiet Water Reviews
I really loved this book the author introduces many concepts through Tess's awakening. I love the concept of past lives.
*This book was given to me by the author in exchange for an honest review*Tess Whitaker has no idea where she’s going in life. After recently splitting from her husband Richard, leaving her teenage son Wade behind, quitting her job at the gym she and her husband owned, moving to a new apartment where she doesn’t know anyone, she wants to make a new start and a new life for herself. After getting more familiar with the area she goes to the beach and makes friends with a man meditating named Doug. He teaches her to meditate also and to not get so stressed about situations, think more clearly about things, and go with her gut. Tess has also been having visions and dreams about a young couple in love named Thomas and Kathleen. Her friend Naomi suggests her going to a psychiatrist to see if someone can figure out the reason for them. After agreeing and seeing someone, she slowly starts to learn about them and it turns out that Kathleen was her in a past life and Thomas was a past lover. The more she learns and the more she trusts her gut instincts is when her life starts going in the direction she wants. She starts dating again to try to find her Thomas in this life and after a few just ok dates she thinks she found her soul mate. However, learning something terrible that happened about her past life she’s unsure if she made a mistake in divorcing Richard, and isn’t sure if she should try to make amends and go back to him or not or stay with the man who just seems to understand her like no one else ever has. I loved this story. It had genuinely funny moments and the characters were all likeable. Tess had gone through some real tough times when she was younger but that just added to her character with how she coped with issues. Learning what Kathleen went through in the past was interesting to learn too. After a big moment was revealed I was pretty shocked and saddened but I think it was good to learn how everything came full circle in the end. ***Review has been done in conjunction with Nerd Girl Official.

Having read Heather Rivera's book, "Healing the Present From the Past," I was looking forward to reading another book by her. Although the first book is nonfiction and Quiet Water is fiction, the quality of writing is excellent in both genres. "Quiet Water" is a story of believable human emotions and experiences. Heather Rivera has a unique talent for story telling that kept my interest from beginning to the uncanny surprise at the end. "Quiet Water" has enchanting elements of mysticism, past life recall, and hints of how the past influences the present. One particularly delicious love scene involving fresh pears has me thinking of pears in an entirely new way! I enjoyed reading the book so much, I hated for it to end. I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves a good story filled with passionate relationships and self discovery balanced by both humor and tragedy.Healing the Present from the Past: The Personal Journey of a Past Life ResearcherQuiet WaterQuiet Water
I really enjoyed reading this book. It starts off a bit slow. Tess is a woman who is searching for her ideal life. She finds it with the help of her friends and her intuition. Along the way she opens her mind to the possibilities of her soul and discovers who she really is.
I have read all three books that follow the spiritual journey of Tess. She is a quirky woman who is making a major change in her life. Love her story! I read all three books in one weekend. Had a very hard time putting down the books.
