Redeeming Grace by Ward Tanneberg

This week, the
Christian Fiction Blog Alliance
is introducing
Redeeming Grace
Lighthouse Publishing of the Carolinas;
1st edition (February 28, 2013)
Ward Tanneberg


Ward Tanneberg is a pastor/writer/novelist who has given more than 50 years to evangelism, youth, college and pastoral ministry, including two Pacific Northwest churches and 23 years as the senior pastor at Valley Christian Center in Dublin, CA. In 2008, he was named President/Executive Director of The CASA Network. Ward speaks extensively at 50+ retreats and ministry leadership events in the USA and elsewhere. When at home he meets weekly with a group of business and professional leaders. He and Dixie have 2 children, 3 grandchildren, 4 step-grandchildren and a great grandson.


Seven years ago, Grace Grafton died in a boating accident while partying on the Georgia, South Carolina coast. Was her death the result of alcohol and drugs or something more sinister? Nobody knows: her body was never recovered. Now years later, a woman reads in disbelief the note addressed to her: Hello Grace, did you think we wouldn't find you?

Those nine chilling words end Grafton's self-imposed sanctuary of witness protection. Now she and everyone she loves are in grave danger. Long believed dead, she has a secret that can change the world. She knows the man running for president is guilty of a double murder! But who will believe her?

If you would like to read the first chapter of Redeeming Grace, go HERE.

My thoughts...

An engrossing plot, interesting characters, lots of suspense and intrigue. The perfect novel? Close! Grace Grafton's evening started out wonderfully but quickly ended in horror. She witnesses her two best friends murders and flees for her life. Grace goes into hiding as the news reports she has drowned in a boating accident though her body was not recovered. She changes her name, starts a new life and 7 years later she is engaged to be married. Everything is wonderful until Grace receives a note with a terrifying message!

One thing I didn't like about the book was the amount of detail that I felt didn't really matter to the storyline. It made the story drag in areas. Some people may find the murder scenes disturbing.

I received a copy of this book free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
