Litfuse Review: Jilted by:Varina Denman

 Jilted (Mended Hearts #3)
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.


My Review:
Lynda Turner has a very hard time trusting men, after her husband abandoned her and their daughter, Ruthie fifteen years ago. Now she does her best not to get depressed over it all and keeps herself busy working at a diner. She feels she has no time for romance and can spend her time doing other productive things. But there is still one man who always seems to be there for her.

Clyde Felton, an ex-convict, has done his best to stay good, after getting out of prison. For the most part he has stayed to himself. The only woman he really speaks to is Lynda Turner, but it seems she is too busy to notice his intentions. When it finally seems he can tell her how he feels, something horrible happens. Bones are found not far from his home and everyone feels that there is only one person that could have done it.

With everyone thinking has has committed murder, can Clyde convince Lynda he is a changed man and only wants her to see how much he cares for her? Or will he end up back in prison?, where everyone believes he belongs.

Jilted is book three in the Mended Hearts series. This series just keeps getting better and better! I really enjoy this author's work and hope to read more from her.
