Book Review: Jilted

A book was given for review for my honest opinion. No other compensation was given.

About the book:

Lynda Turner has struggled with depression since her husband abandoned her and their young daughter fifteen years ago.

Yet unexpected hope awakens when a local ex-convict shows interest. As long-hidden secrets resurface, Lynda must fight for her emotional stability and for a life where the shadow of shame is replaced by the light of love.

Jilted tells of a woman who has lost the joy of living, a man determined to draw her back toward happiness, and a town that must---once and for all---leave the past where it belongs. It is a gentle reminder that all things can work together for good.

About the author:

Varina Denman is author of the Mended Hearts series and a native Texan. She spent her high school years in a rural town and now writes stories about the struggles women face in similar small town settings. She and her husband live near Fort Worth, where they enjoy spending time with their five mostly grown children.

My Opinion

Varina Denman is a new author for me but when I saw she had written a whole series about small town life, I couldn't wait to read it! I love a good book series and I also grew up in small towns so I knew I would be able to relate!

I really, truly enjoyed the Mended Hearts series, especially book #3 Jilted. I really do recommend you read all three books in the series to get the most out of each book and also because they are REALLY GOOD!

In Jilted, I really enjoyed learning more about Lynda and watching her faith grow through continuous challenges! Reading this book reminded me that God always has a plan for our lives even when we feel in the depths of despair with no way out! We must trust and take little steps towards living again and God will be with us every step of the way!

These books were inspirational, romantic, nerve-racking and overall REALLY GOOD! I enjoyed each one and am sad to be done with the series!

Buy It:

You can purchase Jilted for $14.99 from Amazon.com
