Love and a Little White LIe

Love and a Little White Lie

When January Sanders applies for the temporary job at a large church her aunt attends, she has no intention to mention that she doesn't believe in God. What could it hurt?

January is a fascinating character. A bit confused, but interesting non the less. She has a photographic memory that sometimes can be more of a curse than a blessing. But she finds herself helping Ralph as his assistant until a permanent replacement can be found. Running from a failed relationship, Jan  finds she is drawn to Cameron. A multi-talented church musician, who catches her eye. Then there is Dillon. The brooding contractor who sees through Jan's brokenness. Even though he is dealing with his own.

This story has so many issues in so many levels that it draws you in. I love the compassion Jan feels for Sandra, and how she finds herself drawn to her. Her relationship with her mother is touching even though they have issues. As she navigates this lie, the picture gets bigger and bigger. Christians don't seem to follow the pattern she's been told her whole life. They are kind and caring and put themselves out there. There is a depth in the characters that you don't always find written in the pages.

Tammy Gray brought a level of faith that was easy to digest. Her way of walking Jan from agnosticism to an understanding of faith seemed to be explained in a believable way.  An excellent book that illustrates the struggles in life that we all face at one time or another.

I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book which I received from the publisher. All thoughts and opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
