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?

IN MY OPINION
Worthy of Redemption by Krystina Renae Rankin was a book that delivered in so many ways. Rankin’s debut left me wanting more (so it’s a good thing this is the first book in a series).
One tragedy has affected Ashlynn and Heath in different ways. Ashlynn found a calling through it yet she still holds resentment and unforgiveness. Heath’s future was also changed by the tragedy, and through the years he’s carried guilt. This book is their journey of discovery—about that night, themselves, and each other.
Rankin takes readers through a natural progression of animosity and unforgiveness to acceptance, redemption, and more. There are wrong turns and potholes along the way, but the beauty of the destination is the road Ashlynn and Heath take to get there.
I highly recommend this debut author and will be keeping an eye out for the next book in the series.
