Read Bless Her Heart Online Free - Laugh-out-loud funny and unabashedly uplifting, with just the right amount of Southern sass, Sally Kilpatrick's wonderful novel centers on one woman's journey from unhappy marriage to a surprising second chance . . .
On the day Posey Love discovers that her born-again husband has been ministering to some of his flock a little too eagerly, she also learns that he's left her broke and homeless. Posey married Chad five years ago in hopes of finding the stability her hippie mother couldn't provide. Instead she got all the trappings of security--house, car, seemingly respectable husband--at the price of her freedom.
Posey's mother, Lark, accepts her daughter's return home with grace, though her sister can't resist pointing out that being a sweet Southern wife hasn't worked out as planned. And so, with the Seven Deadly Sins as a guide, Posey decides to let loose for once. Envy is easy to check off the list--Posey only has to look at her best friend's adorable baby for that. One very drunken night at The Fountain bar takes care of gluttony. As for lust--her long-time friend, John, is suddenly becoming much more than a pal. One by one, Posey is bulldozing through her old beliefs about love, family--and what it really means to be good. And she's finding that breaking a few rules might be the perfect way to heal a heart . . .

What a sweet and quirky fun love story!! I loved the southern style to this one. My first read from Sally and won't be my last! This was just the right palate cleanser for me with all my mystery thrillers!
Funny, sassy, and just the right amount of love. I was running a bit behind on my arcs but g...

There were only three words in the English language that I hated with all of my being: bless, your, and heart—specifically in that order.
Every Southerner knows what it means when someone blesses your heart, so it's no mystery why Posey Love hates hearing that phrase, especially after a lifetime o...

Some will find the Christianity references in this book excessive -- I know that I did because the publisher's summary didn't really give a hint about them, except to refer to the protagonist's husband as born-again. When I started, I questioned whether I had missed that this book was really Chri...

Posey Love hates three little words. Every time someone says, "Bless your heart," Posey sees red.
But who could blame her? Her life hasn't exactly turned out the way she pictured it would. After a decade of marriage, Posey hoped to be raising a child with her pastor husband. Still aching each mont...

What a terrific book! Posey needs to find her true self after years with her creep of a husband and denial about her family. Giving up church for Lent and a trip through the Seven Deadly Sins is a unconventional way to do that (and please don't find it offensive- it's very funny). She's not the o...

Sad, funny, honest and hopeful Sally Kilpatrick's Bless Her Heart was a joy to read with characters and settings that felt so real and vivid even when I have no prior connection with the subject matter. Watching Posey's journey from what she hoped for, to what she got and how she dealt with it af...

Most in the south know, a simple “Bless Her Heart” is used in many ways, the honest and open goodwill is often the least of them. In fact, those three words are Posey’s least favorite in the English language – and you can believe she feels she’s heard (or used) it more than once. Married for five...
