Jilted (Mended Hearts #3) by Varina Denman

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.

My Review

Jilted is the third book in the Mended Hearts series, and I need to let you know that I have not yet read the other two, but I sure will. The author does a wonderful job of bringing us up to date and I was able to follow the story and once you start you won’t want to put it down.
I can’t even imagine my husband leaving me after an argument, and then disappearing from our lives forever. This is what happened to Lynda Trapp and her young daughter. Of course, by the time this book is written Ruthie is now grown and happily married, and also living in Trapp Texas.
We are reunited with Clyde, a man who has moved on with his life, and shown great forgiveness, and he loves Lynda. Can these two hurt individuals make a life together, or will their past always stand in their way?
This story is going answer a lot of questions, you may or may not be surprised, but there are a lot of facts that are going to come alive. You don’t want to miss this page-turning summer read, I’m glad I picked it up, and will be reading the others in this series.
I received this book through Litfuse Book Bloggers, and was not required to give a positive review.
