Author, Liz Ashlee's new release, HEART'S A MESS, is filled with two big secrets. Both characters are hiding the truth and risk ruining their new love. Ms. Ashlee weaves a compelling tale of heartbreak and redemption. A Must Read! And it's available now!
Sometimes our hearts break…
When John Smith’s father was dying, his family knew there was nothing to do, but they tried anyway. Paying more money than they had, they took John’s father and the last of their hope to Ezra Abel for a healing.
And we fight to keep it beating…
But Ezra’s faith healing is only a trick—a way to fool families out of their money. Worst of all, he humiliates these families when they’re at their lowest. After his father dies, John devotes his life to revealing Ezra for the evil person he is. And when Kinley walks into his life, he’s much closer to accomplishing his goal.
But all you can do is hold it in your hands.
Kinley Abel is Ezra’s weapon, milking families of their hard-earned cash. She doesn’t want to do her father’s bidding, but she has to. Except the more she falls for John, the more she questions her role in the church, leading her down a dangerous path which could break her heart.
Sometimes you fall in love with lies.
“Do you have agyrophobia?”
I blink multiple times, then look from the diner where J.S. should be and up at where he actually is, which is beside me. I would recognize him anywhere, and not just because my dad’s been having me keep a camera on him during our services. It’s just that he’s the only person who’s ever stepped foot into the Church of Life and seemed authentic.
He has thick eyebrows that are always so expressive, even when the rest of his face is impassive. Below them are warm, brown, puppy-dog eyes that seem both playful and mindful. His dark, dirty blond hair is usually short. I’ve noticed he always scratches at a spot behind his ear whenever he’s listening closely to Ezra. He doesn’t smile a lot in church, but when he does, it’s bright and turns my mind inside out, showing off the dimples in his cheeks and his wolfishly sharp teeth. Whenever someone was at the church with a truly bad illness, he would always take extra time to talk to them—offering his kind grin.
“E-e-e-xcuse m-m-me?” I ask, stuttering.
“It’s a fear of crossing the street.” He offers me that grin as he holds up his phone. “I looked it up before I walked overhere. Guess I don’t seem as smart now, huh?”
