Publisher's Description

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.

    Realistic and beautiful romance

    Jilted was a beautiful conclusion to the Mended Hearts series. It was wonderful to revisit all of the folks in smalltown, Trapp, Texas.

    Lynda Turner finally has her story told from her perspective. She has struggled with depression ever her husband had abandoned her and their young daughter fifteen years ago. Her character is very real that many readers will be able to relate to. Shes been through so much during her that she hasnt truly lived it.

    Well, that is until ex-convict, Clyde Felton, starts showing an interest in her. I also really enjoyed having Clyde in the story and getting to learn more about him.

    However, events occur that dredge up the past that she will have to face. Lynda will have to fight for her emotional stability and trade a life of shame for 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 mustonce and for allleave the past where it belongs. It is a gentle reminder that all things can work together for good.

    This is not a light fluffy read because we do deal with topics such as depression, anxiety, and grief. However, Denman showcases a realistic story of characters going through some very real life trials while shining the hope of Jesus Christ. This story ended well.

    Denman does a wonderful job of showing us small-town prejudices, a churchs unjustness, and depression, it is both entertaining while keeping it entertaining at the same time. You will cry, laugh, cheer, and all of the other feels.

    I absolutely loved Lynda and Clyde. They make a wonderfully cute couple even though they both have a long road of healing ahead of them. The other characters made it special as well. They become like friends and family and they were fun to see appear throughout the book.

    Its also fast-paced. I found myself quickly flying to the pages until I found myself at the very end.

    It also has a mystery feel to it. As events develop, more and more questions arise as to what really happen. I thought that was a fun added twist to the story. I loved being able to figure out what possibly happened only to find out I was wrong! Mrs. Denman definitely keeps you on your toes which is an added plus.

    I highly recommend it!

    I loved meeting these characters again

    I have read every book in this series. The first book captured me. Varinas style of writing just speaks to my heart and her characters are so real.

    I loved this series so much I purchased this book to read because I missed the chance to get a review copy, that should say a lot:)

    So, this book does start a bit slow but even saying that there was something about it that pulled me in.

    I really didnt like Lynda in the first book, I thought she was a horrible mother but as I read the second book I began to like her more and finally getting to this one I was ready to hear her story. It is a bit depressing but Lynda deals with depression so feeling that way while reading it makes sense, we are in her mind.

    Clyde is a wonderful, strong hero. I adored him and only wanted the best of him. He is so patient with Lynda.

    I love this feeling of hope I found as I read, that Lynda would eventually come to see Jesus loved her and He never left her even though these other men had.

    I think if this is the first book in the series you have read you might not enjoy it as much because you dont know the other characters and what has transpired before, but if you have read the other two you will love meeting up with the people of Trapp, Texas again.

    A very poignant and emotionally packed story!

    Trapp Texas felt like a trap to Lynda Turner & Clyde Felton's past, one that held them back from all that was good and right. A town not easily forgiving--if at all--holding onto grudges like a vise grip, and judging as harshly as any crocked courtroom. But God has more for the town and the people who call it their home, if they would but open up to it!

    A very poignant & emotionally packed story of love, forgiveness (even of one's own self), the ability to face one's past & move on and lessons each member of this small town will learn--eventually. As though its reluctance to is held in deep-rooted lies and blinded eyes to the truth. Past things begin to come to light, long held misconceptions begin to clear up, and things begin to be made new--beauty for ashes as scripture says. A truly moving story, one that stirs the heart and soul deep within and leaves little room for anything other than God's love, forgiveness, grace & mercy!

    Since I didn't read the first two books in this series (Jaded & Justified), I didn't have the backdrop of the towns history or of the depth of character. But I was able to figure out who was who & what was what pretty quick and had a very hard time putting this down. It gripped me, leaving me breathless at times, laughing at others and yet still pulling on my heart-strings. I could relate in a lot of ways to Lynda, which made the story more personal and real. I could see myself doing, saying or thinking the same things she did. Most importantly, God spoke to me, using the authors words to remind me of the beauty for ashes story in my own life, and making me fall in love with my Creator God even more! I'll definitely be going back to read the first two books in the Mended Hearts series and anticipating what God will speak to my heart through them!

    *I received a complimentary copy from the author in exchange for my honest review which I have provided here. Thank you Varina for being the willing vessel by which God used you to speak to me through your story! I am ever grateful! *

    Wonderful Story - My New Favorite Series

    Jilted is the third book in The Mended Heart Series by Denman. Before this latest release I was not familiar with this series but now I am a huge fan. The author has a way of drawing the reader in and grips at the heart strings from the page one. This book is a story of a woman who has dealt with heartbreak and depression and who is on a journey and hopes to find joy again. I laughed, cried, and prayed with this character and did not want the story to end. It truly is a story that shows that God truly does work out all things for His good. If you need a new series to read this summer I highly recommend this one. You want be sorry.

    I was given this book by Litfuse in exchange for my review.

    If you are looking for a book to read that is full of heart and a story that will completely draw you in and hold you captive, then "Jilted" is for you! However, I would highly recommend you read the first two books in the series first just because they are THAT good and the characters will become even more so real to you. Varina is a talented writer as she has the ability to create characters and storylines that are so easy to relate to and her descriptions are so detailed and written in a way that I became a part of the story.

    Lynda has struggled with heartache, depression and thoughts of just feeling trapped, yet not willing to actually leave her hometown and start over. Described as a half-empty girl, she is consumed with negativity and tired of pretending. However, Lynda has determined that she is going to try and not hide within herself and move on with her life.

    This book portrays life in a small town and how things can be both difficult and wonderful when everyone knows each other and their pasts. This is an emotional read and I found myself tearing up at times and smiling at other times. I highly recommend the Mended Heart series for a hopeful and inspiring read that will completely captivate you.
