She left him at the altar, but her heart was always his...
After more than ten years away, Australian soap star Ellie Hughes returns to the small country town of Hope Junction, determined to remain anonymous 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’s 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 again, forced to deal with the unresolved emotions between them. For 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?
I hadn't heard of this one until more recently, and I'm glad I found out about it. Jilted takes place in Australia, which I think added a lot of character to the story for me. When Ellie and Flynn first meet again, it's not a pretty picture. But after a little bit of time, they let each other in again--slowly, gradually. After a personally tragedy, they can't help but be drawn together again. It doesn't take long for the past to come up again, and the real reason why Ellie left to begin. Can they find a way to make it work, despite everything that's happened over the years?
Jilted was a cute second chance romance. It's a very long story, quite detailed, but it doesn't take away from the honest and heartwarming aspects of it. It kind of makes it better. More real and touching. Rachael Johns is a great writer, and one I'd read again.
