I was gifted an ARC of this book from the author and here is my honest review. I am starting to cry just thinking of how I want to word my review. I don't usually write any spoilers but I have to warn you that there might be a few in this review. I don't think it can be helped. This is the third book in The Freedom Trilogy and for me, the best of the three. I encountered every emotion possible when reading this book.. sadness, happiness, anger, confusion, hysteria, love and so many, many more. T ...more

I can't wait to get my hands on this book!!! Not so patiently waiting......

Finally downloaded book 3. I can't wait to dive into it. I know I will finish it before the night is over!! =)

***Well, I finished the 3rd book. While it was a great book I had a hard time continuing to read it. First around page 40 or so with the little bit about being a good parent and getting their child vaccines. I almost stopped reading there and then. I don't want the whole vaccine debate in the book I am reading. I

Where do I begin, once again Brenda has made another masterpiece! I love reading Brenda’s books not only does she draw you into her characters and make you love them but she adds new people to each one of her books and you get to watch them grow and fight through their own struggles. Emma and Alac have been through so much no only by themselves but as a family. If I had to choose two words to best describe Mending Hearts it would be “closure” and “happiness”. Brenda has a great way of throwing c ...more

I had the pleasure of beta reading this for Brenda and just like all her other books this one is another winner in my opinion. This is the dramatic conclusion to the Shattered Hearts trilogy. Told in multiple POVs this book will answer all of the questions we were left with at the end of book two. You will laugh,cry and have some OMG moments but that's to be expected from Brenda she likes to keep you on the edge of your seat when reading her books. Perfect ending to another perfect trilogy.

I love this book so much it is my all time favorite Brenda Kennedy books. I love and admire Brenda's story telling ability. I have not yet been able to put down any of her books once I read the first page. She is so discriptive with her words that you can almost smell what she smells and see what she sees. Just when I think that her books can't get any better, she goes and exceeds them all. I will never stop reading, recommending, or loving her books.

Where do I begin. I loved this book. It was beautifully written. Brenda Kennedy did what she does best, had u in tears with all the twists in turns then wrapped it up the way that it should have been.

Alec and Emma are ready to start their new lives but along the way there were some things that needed to be taken care of. There are plot twists and things that happen that will have you balling your eyes out w a box of Kleenex. Overall it was a great read and I highly recommend it. Trust me you wi

This is my favorite trilogy from this author. If you think you know what will happen in this book then let me tell you, you don't. I find absolutely amazing how this story has so much love and compassion, now in days that's hard to find. In this last book we get to see different point of views and see what becomes of all the characters. The name "Mending hearts" is a true fit to this book.

This is final book in the Freedom Trilogy and the one word I would use is - closure, to sum it all up.
By now you will have read my reviews of 1 and 2 so you have rough idea of how we left things off, and since you guys know I don't like to post spoilers I am afraid that there may be a few in this review.

We start where we left off with, Molly in the hospital after an overdose. Now part of me wanted her to "die" because off all the hell she has put Alec through, then Emma, when she came back on th

The absolute PERFECT ending to a beautiful, genuine and heartfelt story.

Emma and Alec FINALLY get the HAPPILY EVER AFTER they more than deserve. Emma shows how big her heart is by doing what most wouldn't; she helps Alec's ex-wife Molly. In the process Molly seems to find a purpose to life, to happiness and in turn not only finds herself but find the strength she needs to fight to stay clean. Her love for her daughter is just the focus she needs.

An amazing ending to a heartwarming series.
Loved that the passion, tenderness, and love was still going strong with Emma and Alec in this final book. They are such a sweet sexy couple.
It was so wonderful to read about the trust and caring between them that allowed them to believe in each other enough to open their hearts (& family) to his ex-wife, her former lover, and her new boyfriend. By providing such a supportive network, I think really helped all of them become more caring individuals

Another amazing read, the perfect conclusion to the Freedom Trilogy.

In Shattered Hearts we met and fell in love with both Emma and Alec, their children and struggled with the tragedies they survived.
In Broken Lives we saw their lives get flipped upside down and everything they had been building was threatened.
And finally with Mending Hearts we get the end of the story. The much anticipated finale to Alec, Emma, Raelynn, James and Molly's lives are all changing and with a little help, trust, fait

What a Wonderful Series

Love how this series ended Alex, Emma, James and Raelynn what a love this family had for each other - shows how love can heal all kinds of hurt in one's life - losing a parent through death or some other outside influence is hard and to be able to move on and find love again is amazing. Emma has such a big heart to be able to allow the ex into her life and home, but what a testament to showing how to be an extremely loving person. Can't wait for the story of the others.

I really enjoyed this trilogy. However for this final book I felt as though it ended a little too neatly. That is why I took a star off of my rating.

This is the third and final book of this fantastic trilogy called The Freedom Trilogy. I fell completely in love with all these characters and their problems since the very first book and I couldn't get enough of these characters. This book deserves much more than 5 stars!!!
This book brought forth much more emotion from me but in a good way. I have watched Emma's world crash and she had to pick herself up and push forward for the sake of her son James. I have loved watching how Emma has grown si

I was gifted an ARC for an honest review. This is the third and final book in the Freedom Trilogy #3 by Author Brenda Kennedy.
First, let me start out by saying, I loved this series from the start to the end. To see the journey Emma and Alec went through from the start with the ups and downs. We start off with Emma and Alec at the hospital due to Molly overdosing on drugs. What I loved about Emma is she was so strong for the whole family when a few tragic events have this whole family coming toge

While I did enjoy book one and two this third book took a drastic turn for me, did not like how rushed it felt like it had to be wrapped up fastly. I also did not like the way every single person just turned out perfectly fine and accepted one single apology and all was right and dandy again, everyone turns into everyone's best friend all wrapped in a pretty bow. Again I felt the author rushed through this just to end the series with a little too much happily ever after. Then everyone gets a pov ...more

So, I really liked these books. Great series. Very clean. All sexual activity was behind closed doors. I liked the characters. I thought the author got on a little tangent with several topics. Almost too much. And several times I thought there were long details, too much. However, great writing, and good twists. There were only a couple cuss words in the last book, but I don't remember any in the other books. Character were a little too good. A little unrealistic. I would read more from this aut ...more

All good things must come to an end

Although some of the writing seemed stilted this was still a very good series. Alec and Emma stole my heart from the beginning. They went through a lot to be together. Molly was determined to be better for her child. Life is full of choices and we don't always choose the right ones. Our only hope is that we get the help we need to be better. I loved all the secondary characters. They made the book even better.

Emma didn't think she would be able to love someone again until she met Alec. Though life has given them a run for their money Alec comes with some baggage. Emma loves his daughter Raylynn, but she also got his crazy druggie ex. When Molly overdoses she wants to get help, but Alec has heard this so many times he doesn't want to believe again.

Can Emma and Alec overcome another Molly moment or will this be the end of it all?!
