Melissa Keir shares the boxset Celebrate & her Redeeming Love

Growing up, certain events took hold in my memory. I remembered my grandfather pulling a quarter out of my ear and while I knew it was a prank, I couldn’t figure out how he did it. I also didn’t remember my mom going to Christmas Eve as my grandparents’ house. It was only later, as an adult, did I find out why.
Liza, our gracious hostess, has shown us how faulty our memory is. One particular incident in my life scarred me for years. But as an adult, other people told a different story about that afternoon. Who was right and who was wrong?

I’m going to say something radical… it doesn’t matter. Right or wrong, we each have our own memories of that event. The one good thing I can say about it…I haven’t allowed it to continue to shadow my life. I’ve grown past it. I’ve learned forgiveness and while each of us remains steadfast in our beliefs of the event, the two of us have become friends. And isn’t love much better than hate?

Memories and the unique twists they play in our lives is at the heart of Redeeming Love. When two people have different memories of one event, who is right? It’s a game of he said, she said… I hope you will read it and figure out for yourself.

Redeeming Love is about two people who used to be in love but things got in their way. The story weaves the past and present together in a way which keeps you guessing until you find out what really tore them apart and if they can find love again.


He said, she said…..
Andrea Gill is America’s sweetheart after winning Olympic gold in Woman’s swimming, but she is hiding a secret she’s kept since she was in high school.
Jason Dree loved and lost the girl of his dreams when he was a junior at Lucasville High. He’s never heard the truth about why she left and it’s hunted his life.
What happens when Jason and Andrea finally reunite, will they continue to battle their demons or will the love they share, redeem them?

As he ran the damp rag over his face, he noticed a patch of gray hair at his temple. His father had been gray by his thirties and it appeared Jason was following suit. He dropped the cloth back into the sink, unbuttoned his shirt, and peeled off his clothes. The cool air puckered along his arms and revitalized him after the long day. Standing in his boxers, Jason took a “whore’s bath,” cleaning up enough for dinner alone.

The silence depressed him. The home felt empty after the years of happy conversations and family celebrations. After his parents’ deaths, Jason hadn’t wanted to move. While he’d spent a great deal of money updating it, he hadn’t done it with a specific woman in mind. He’d hoped someday to bring a wife here and start his own family. But so far, he hadn’t found “the one.” Lately, he didn’t have the energy for dating—the chase, the getting to know someone, or creating dreams of what might be. Oh, he’d been in love before but not seriously since high school, when his perfect girl broke his heart.

About Melissa Keir
For my wedding in Vegas, my books and computer came with me but there wasn't enough room for my wedding shoes. It’s all about priorities! As an avid reader, I was probably born with a book in hand. Luckily my mom was also an avid reader, so it was easy to "borrow" her books when my books were finished.
I was reading from an early age about dashing men on horseback riding to the rescue of strong willed and capable women who didn't really need rescuing. I came to expect that women in fairy tales should have fought their own battles. When I was older, I found Margaret Atwood and realized that women could re-tell history in their own way and I experimented with changing those basic fairy tales.
Fortunately for me, my husband allows me the opportunity to be myself (spend my salary on books) and still takes care of the really important things for me like killing spiders and opening jars. As an elementary teacher, teaching children about the many worlds inside of books is a gift that I’m lucky enough to do for a living. Teaching the next generation to love reading is a lot of fun! Reading the right book can make a new world come alive!
Currently living in the suburbs of Ann Arbor, Michigan with my darling husband, way-too-grown-up children and spoiled dogs, I enjoy getting away through a book to escape the harsh winters or summer road construction.

I’d love to hear from you!


  1. Thank you Liza for sharing my book and the story behind it. :)

  2. You are absolutely right, Melissa. It doesn't matter whose memory is right and whose is wrong. We have to go past it. Hope you have a very happy holiday! Tweeted and Facebooked.

    1. Thank you Jenna. I worry so much about the people who are holding on to pain when they don't have to! Happy Holidays!

  3. Many - many - many family arguments start with faulty memories - such a waste of time. Book sounds great. And glad your husband does the important stuff - like protiecting you from spiders :-)

  4. See how much better than me you are. I just discuss that we have faulty memories. You come up with the solution: Forgive and forget!
