Love And A Little White Lie Review





 About the Book

 January Sanders grew up believing karma was more reliable than an imaginary higher power, but after suffering her worst heartbreak in 29 years, she's open to just about anything, including taking a temporary position at her aunt's church. Keeping her lack of faith a secret, January is determined to use her photographic memory to help Grace Community's overworked staff, all while scraping herself off rock bottom.

What she doesn't count on is meeting the church's handsome and charming guitarist, who not only is a strong believer, but has also dedicated his life to Christian music. It's a match set for disaster, and yet January has no ability to stay away, even if it means pretending to have faith in a God she doesn't believe in.

Only this time, keeping secrets isn't as easy as she thought it would be. Especially when she's constantly running into her aunt's landscape architect, who seems to know everything about her past and present sins and makes no apologies about pushing her to deal with feelings she'd rather keep buried.

Torn between two worlds incapable of coexisting, can January find the healing that's eluded her or will her resistance to the truth ruin any chance of happiness? (Goodreads)


My Thoughts


I have read a few of Tammy L. Gray's books so I was excited that she got a publishing contract with Bethany House. I have to say this book wasn't quite what I was expecting. The cover is really fun and there were some good points made throughout the book. I really didn't care for any of the characters. I tried to like January but even in the end I just struggled with her. There is a twist in the plot that I didn't really see coming and to be honest was a tad confused when I realized what was going on. All that to say many people have loved this book but it simply wasn't for me. I do recommend Gray's other novels as she is a talented author. This story line I just didn't care for at this time. 

Three Stars.
