Book Review: Love And A Little White Lie

There's a lot of irony in hitting rock bottom

After a heartbreak leaves her reeling, January Sanders is open to anything--including moving into a cabin on her aunt's wedding-venue property and accepting a temporary position at her aunt's church despite being a lifelong skeptic of faith. Choosing to keep her doubts to herself, she's determined to give her all to supporting Grace Community's overworked staff while helping herself move on.

What she doesn't count on is meeting the church's handsome and charming guitarist. 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 her secret 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 that can't coexist, can January find the healing that's eluded her, or will her resistance to the truth ruin any chance of happiness?

My Reflections:

This fresh and feisty tale won me over from page one. Who wouldn't be intrigued by the main character who is named after a summer month and living a tiny lie...she is working as a church helper and isn't even a believer. I enjoyed watching her evolve and grow into a well-rounded character. She is funny however like many of us she puts herself down and seems to struggle with low self-esteem it's no wonder since she has suffered a nasty breakup. To break free and start her new life that means putting herself in situations that may be uncomfortable, but help her grow. and grow she does!

The development of this character is fun to watch, written in first person you get to really grasp what January is thinking, what a hoot! Even if she found her quirky personality offputting, I think that's what drew me to her, who doesn't like a free-thinking character with a fun personality!

I absolutely loved aunt Doreen, I have an aunt Judy who I adore! Such a patient and loving soul! My aunt is just the same. Aunties are so much fun!

This is the third book I have read by this author and I have to say this one was my favourite thus far, I can't wait for a sequel which will most likely be based more on Dillion and or Aunt Doreen. I am definitely anticipating the release. If you want a book that has you laughing then crying and sighing in between this may just be your next read. Fun fact I was also staying in a cabin as read this novel, it was not however a wedding-themed one!
