Jilted by Varna Denman



Jilted (David C. Cook, June 2016)
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 Thoughts:
Jilted is crafted in such a way that the reader does not need to read the previous two books in the series, but I highly recommend doing so as it leads the readers to having a better appreciation for the characters, especially my favorite Lynda. I found Jilted to be the most emotional of the three books in the series. This book is both realistic and it begs the question will Lynda and Clyde have their happy ending? The only way to know is to read the story. I give this book 4/5 stars and was provided a complimentary copy for review purposes only. 


One grand prize winner will receive:
  • A copy of Jilted to kick off a summer of reading
  • A $50 Kohl’s gift card to make your summertime sweet
The giveaway ends on July 1st. The winner will be announced July 5th on Varina’s website.
