New Release! Granted Redemption by Katie Mettner


Psalm 23: Though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death….. A lifetime ago Grant Harris was an Australian surfer at the top of his sport, until one wave changed everything. Fifteen years later, Grant has become bitter, lonely, and disillusioned. Hoping to jump start his career he accepts a position in Duluth Minnesota, with no way of knowing how quickly his life was about to change. A lifetime ago Carla Coffers was a runaway teen with no family, no money and no hope for a future. Fifteen years later, she’s a successful business woman as owner of Carla’s Kinky Café, on beautiful Lake Superior. Her friends think she’s got it all, but Carla still yearns for the one thing she never had. A cup of coffee, a car, a confession and a cross come together to grant them redemption from their past and hope for the future.

My Review

Katie Mettner has done it again. She has drawn me in and made me fall in love with her characters. Carla and Grant so beautifully bring themselves out of their daily despair and allow themselves a second chance. However, it seems without the other, it wouldn’t have been possible. The characters so carefully complement each other. At first, Carla comes across and a smart and sassy business woman, but you quickly realize she fights invisible demons every day. Grant’s a free spirit on the outside, making people believe he doesn’t have a care in the world, the surfer dude who belongs on a beach. He too bears heavy weights on his shoulders, too tightly bound to his past and to his regrets to let himself live happily. You’ll love reading about their journey and getting to know them. You’ll feel like a member of their community and wish you could drink a Kinky Karmel Kuffs with them in the café, but most of all, you’ll love reading about their growth and redemption.
Don’t be fooled by the genre, Christian Romance, this is a HOT love story about two people who fight their way to a happy ending.
Granted Redemption is more than a Christian love story, it’s an adventure in self-forgiveness and restoring the human spirit. And how can I get my hands on a mashed potato pizza?

About Katie Mettner
I grew up in Eau Claire, Wisconsin and moved to the Northwoods as a young adult where I now reside with my husband and three children. My love affair with Lake Superior began when I met my husband, Dwayne, and he drove me across the bridge one snowy November day with my nose pressed up against the glass. It was in that moment the scene was set for my breakout novel!

As a young adult I enjoyed ballroom dancing and spent many hours on the dance floor. After an injury sidelined me for 10 years I am finally able to waltz again! My stories are a reflection of my love for family intricately woven with life experience. When the gales of November blow early you can find me at the computer with a cup of joe, listening to Michael Bublé and working on Sugar’s next adventure…
