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?
In My Opinion
This book is in turn funny and deep. In Love & a Little White Lie, Tammy L. Gray takes readers on an emotional journey along with January because there’s a little of all of us in January.
She doubts herself, God and others in her life but she is also tender-hearted toward people. She’s struggling to find her place after a devastation and puts herself out there. Yes, sometimes her journey is three steps forward, two steps back but no matter her pace, she is moving in the right direction.
Between her wit and her uncanny ability to notice things others don’t, January is a well-rounded, memorable character. But it’s her journey that resonates the most in this beautiful story of love that quietly waits for the recipient to realize it’s always been there.
