Can you be true to someone you love and still keep a little secret from them? That’s what happens in Love and a Little White Lie. This is a Christian romance from award-winning author Tammy L. Gray and it not only explores life in a megachurch but the relationships and problems that happen between the employees.
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.
In this story, January Sanders finds herself in the throes of breakup depression and decides to stay with her aunt who runs a wedding venue. Her aunt is very active in her large church and gets Jan a job interview working for an overworked pastor. Jan has the gift or nuisance of focusing on small details and missing the big picture. Jan gets the job at the church and her little white lie is she really doesn’t believe in all that God stuff. She falls for a dreamy church musician but doesn’t tell him she’s faking religion. She’s also getting frustrated with a guy who works on her aunt’s wedding venue and refuses to let Jan slide on anything. This was a sweet romance and a story of a character who struggles with the idea of faith and it’s reality. The author did a great job of showing just how hard it can be to look for things that are not right in front of a person and the main character’s obsession with the details played right into this. Great inspirational romance!
