Mended Hearts Book 3
Varina Denman
Lynda has been dealt a series of rough blows. Everyone turned against her or left her. She's suffered from severe depression since her husband left her years ago. But now that some of the secrets from her past have been brought to light, she's beginning to see that she wasn't completely abandoned. Her family loves her and an ex-con and former friend wants to renew their friendship. Lynda will need to fight to rise above the doubts and negatives, but what awaits her at the end will be beautiful.

The story started out slow for me. But within a couple of chapters, I was hooked. I think this is my favorite book of the series. Just like the previous books, the author weaves a tale that feels so real and engaging. The characters could be someone you know or live next door to. The author handled the subject of depression well and I felt gave the readers a bit of insight into what it's like to live with depression. The inclusion of faith fit well with the story and was well written. The book could probably work as a stand-alone, but I would recommend reading the other two books first. It will make the story so much richer. The author tied everything up, but I could definitely read more about this town and its inhabitants. Overall, I was incredibly impressed with this new author and can't wait to see what she comes up with next.

I received this book free of charge from Litfuse Publicity in exchange for my honest review.
