Review - His Haunted Heart by Lila Felix

Title: His Haunted Heart 
Author: Lila Felix
Release Date: May 11, 2015

Six years ago, deep in the swamps of Louisiana, Delilah’s face was marred forever at the hands of her sisters by the point of her mother’s kitchen knife. Despite her protest, her parents insist she make haste in finding a husband. But finding a husband isn’t an easy feat with a scar running the length of your face. 

Porter Jeansonne keeps to himself. He lives in his mansion, set apart from the town he’s grown to detest. One night, walking through the town, seeking to collect a debt, he hears a man selling off his daughter in the most deplorable part of the darkened streets. He chooses to take pity on her and set her free from her despicable family. Until he sees her face. He then knows that maybe she is the mend for his haunted heart.

Bravo on a very unique book, Ms. Felix, one that I will not be forgetting anytime soon!

This was a beautiful story of wanting one of the most precious things we can give and get...LOVE. Poor Delilah got anything but that, and my goodness, how my heart broke for her.

One thing I loved about this story was that it was like a puzzle because I didn't quite understand what was happening to Porter, and when I started putting the pieces together, I realized this was more than I ever expected. Seeing Porter and Delilah's relationship grow made me see that true love really does exist, especially when you don't judge a book by its cover. Be prepared to be taken on a ride that will have you holding on until the last and wishing it didn't have to end. 

There really are no words for how much I loved reading about two broken people who didn't realize at first that they needed each other as much as they needed air to breathe. This was a beautiful story of love, hope, redemption and triumph when it seems like everything and everyone is against you, so thank you, Ms. Felix. Thank you for a story that was a breath of fresh air and beautifully unique. I will definitely be looking out for more from you.

I am a stay at home mom from the South and wife to the most giving and hard working husband ever. I love to cook and try out new recipes even if they don't always turn out like I want them to. I refer to my kids lovingly as the Three Stooges as they are constantly coming up with new ways to reek havoc in the house. Most recently that included putting a rubber band on the kitchen sink sprayer so it would douse me when I did the dishes. I love to go to roller derby bouts and read in my spare time. I write mostly at night when the house is silent and I can sneak cookies without having to share! If you're into stalking, try under the Cypress trees in the swamps of Louisiana, but watch out for gators!!
