Welcome to the Blog + Review Tour for Worthy of Redemption by Krystina Renae Rankin, hosted by JustRead Publicity Tours!
ABOUT THE BOOK
Title: Worthy of Redemption
Series: White Lake Romance #1
Author: Krystina Renae Rankin
Publisher: Quirky Bullpen Press
Release Date: October 5, 2021
Genre: Christian Contemporary Romance
Ashlynn Wilson left the small town of White Lake, Texas after tragedy struck on graduation night, taking the life of her best friend Victoria. Now, ten years later, she returns to help her parents after her father is diagnosed with cancer. When she arrives she finds herself having to face more than just memories after she discovers that the doctor treating her father is Victoria’s former boyfriend Heath Lancaster, the man Ashlynn holds responsible for her death. Even more surprising is that she is beginning to see him as a compassionate man of faith caring for her ill father; not the teenage boy who made poor decisions.
Heath Lancaster has never really forgiven himself for his girlfriend’s death so he isn’t surprised that his former classmate hasn’t either. Now that Ashlynn is back in town, he hopes their interactions can be minimal. However, when a situation arises that she is uniquely qualified for, he realizes they are going to be spending far more time together than either one of them had planned. What’s more, he realizes he enjoys her company. As old hurts turn into friendship, and maybe even love, can Heath prove to them both that he’s a man worthy of redemption?
I was thoroughly impressed by this story and am so happy to see that it will be the first in a series. The characters were real and relatable. Ashlynn carried hurt and anger for years over the tragedy of her best friend’s death. Heath carried hurt and guilt over the same event. Yet, Heath had changed and Ashlynn had to admit that his faith seemed authentic.
I really liked the way these two got to know each other again. They actually talked things over and worked on getting along and getting to know each other. The way they began to fall for each other felt very authentic and the bumps they faced along the way did as well.
The author did a great job of creating characters I liked, both the main characters and a host of side characters. I am looking forward to reading more books set in this small town and am curious who the next novel will be about.
I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.
