Note:  I received a complimentary copy for an honest review of this book from
His Wounded Heart is a novel to enjoy in an afternoon, filled with romance and more.  A young man disillusioned about God, faith and church is seriously injured.  He is so angry no one person stays to help with the long term care.  Of course, Sean wasn’t helping matters any the way he would treat the help even when his friend took time off to help him with learning; Sean wasn’t willing to bend.  One thing he kept holding onto was his pride….until.
The doctor has been working with him, and since her past heartache, she made a vow to keep a distance from any man who showed her affection.  Jaclyn had a dream shattered too, so she was trying to still fill that longing through obtaining a job to be near her love of sports.
While Jaclyn and Sean are the main human characters, the novel really speaks to the readers about God being the One who loves us.  In the pages, is a reminder of how people view God as watching others whether life is good or hard.  I loved how the truth that the people, the church, can be an instrument of mirroring Him and are also faulty humans.  When Jaclyn shows Sean an example he has never witnessed before, something stirs deep within Sean.
Jaclyn needs God to do a work in her heart too, and she submits to His loving hand.  Here is an example of choosing to let God do work in us, for us and through us.  While pain on the earth won’t last forever, our relationship with Him through Jesus will and it anchors us through the tempests.  During times when we are overwhelmed by our emotions or life experiences even what we see others going through, God speaks still.
His Wounded Heart contained pages that were filled more with God’s romance and love for us than mankind can ever really understand.  He reaches out to us, shows us the way to come to Him, speaks through the Holy Spirit to our hearts or minds; this is what makes God so amazing!  Read and share this wonderful tale with anyone God leads you to, perhaps it will stir their hearts too!
My rating is 5+ stars.

This whole series is so worth reading! They excel at suspense and grabbing the heart of the reader, pulling them into the plethora of happenings in the book. The series has a total of four books that can be read as stand-alone stories though I found reading them in order helped enhance my understanding of the plot and characters.
The titles in order are: Convenient Lies, Twisted Lies followed by Generous Lies, which comes before this final novel I am sharing my thoughts on today.Robin weaves such a well-crafted plot that brings the reader into the story from the first page, and then keep turning the pages with all the twists and turns in the plot.I felt like I was right there observing what was happening around me even though I was reading the book.
Time flew by quickly and I was unaware of what was going on around me because I was lost in the pages!Right th…
