Love and a Little White Lie by Tammy L. Gray



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 know that this is a silly reason to like a character but January’s name is so unique that I really loved it! Not only that my birthday is in January.
I felt January’s emotions coming to me loud and clear and I admired her for the changes that she went through. After all, it’s not easy to change especially when you’ve been raised one way only to find out something different!
I simply loved January’s aunt! So very easy to get to know and love! Everyone needs an Aunt like her!
This book is just simply a beautiful read! I was drawn immediately into the book and I didn’t really want to say goodbye to the characters!
Will I read another book by this author again? Yes, I will! She’s just that good!
Gray adds some beautiful Christian verses in this book and some I believe you’ll be familiar with. (I found myself looking up some of them.)
Cameron is a wonderful supporting character. If I was to have a friend I’d want it to be him.
I don’t want to give away anything else because it will spoil it for other readers. So, let’s just I highly recommend this book and I was NOT required to write a positive review. All opinions are my own.


Tammy L. Gray lives in the Dallas area with her family, and they love all things Texas, even the erratic weather patterns. Her nine modern and true-to-life contemporary romances include 2017 RITA award winning, My Hope Next Door, and show her unending quest to write high quality, culturally relevant stories with relatable and flawed characters.

When not taxiing her three kids to various school and sporting events, Tammy can be spotted crunching numbers as the financial administrator at her hometown church. Writing has given her a platform to combine her passion with her ministry all while sharing the messy, yet remarkable journey that is a faith-filled life.

Tammy L. Gray has lots of projects going on. For all the latest info, visit her website at
