ABOUT THE BOOK:

She'd left him at the altar, but her heart was always his……

After more than ten years away, Australian soap opera star Ellie Hughes returns to the small town of Hope Junction, determined to fly under the radar while caring for her injured godmother, Matilda.

But word spreads fast in the tight-knit community. It isn't long before the people of Hope Junction are gossiping about the real reason for Ellie's visit and why she broke the heart of golden boy Flynn Quartermaine all those years ago.

Soon Ellie and Flynn are thrown back together, forced to deal with the unresolved emotions between them. Because Ellie is not the only one with secrets. Flynn has his own demons to battle, and Matilda is hiding something from her much-loved goddaughter.

When all is uncovered, can the ill-fated lovers overcome the wounds of their past? Or is Flynn destined to be jilted again?

MY REVIEW:

Thanks to Netgalley for allowing me to read this book for my honest review.

Don't let this cover fool you. 

Jilted is not a light fluffy/cute romance (which is more of the vibe I got from looking at it).

This second chance at love(reunited love actually) is pretty serious at the heart of it all.

The rural Australia setting may appeal to those that like a book with a small town feel peppered with interesting secondary characters.

Jilted is filled with some easy to figure out "twists" and maybe one that wasn't so clear.

There are some deep issues at play here that left with me with mixed feelings on how they were worked out. 

Jilted is solidly written for a debut, but I'm mixed on whether I'd read another book by this author.
