LOVE AND A LITTLE WHITE LIE
SERIES: State of Grace #1
GENRE: Inspirational Contemporary Romance
PUBLISHER: Bethany House
RELEASE DATE: August 4, 2020
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?

I asked the author…
What is one of your favorite quotes from Love and a Little White Lie & why do you love it?
“Prayer is not about changing your situation, although sometimes God grants those requests. It’s about changing your heart.”
This quote came from my heroine’s aunt, who was based on a mentor of mine. Her strength and wisdom has been a huge blessing to me and this was one of the lessons she really helped me see. So often we pray for God to “fix” something. We want something to begin or to stop. We want dreams fulfilled and challenges ended. And as Christians we get on our knees and pray for these things fully expecting answers. But the beauty of Christ is that the answer is rarely what we expect. And most important, God uses that surrender to change our heart and perspective. That is the real miracle of prayer. It’s also one of the foundational lessons in this book and why this quote is so special to me.
