Tag: One Thing I Know

Faith is a lot like love. It's a big, scary leap that requires you to hold nothing back, throw yourself off the precipice, and believe you'll be caught.

#ThrowbackThursday | One Thing I Know by Kara Isaac

Rachel Somers is the bestselling author of series of relationship books … except the whole of America thinks her aunt, Dr. Donna Sommerville, is the author. Now, lots of published books are actually written by ghostwriters, so that’s no big deal. But Rachel is more than the author. She’s also the voice behind a lot of the interviews.

Lucas Grant is the host of a late-night radio talkback show. It’s supposed to be a sports show, but people keep calling him about their relationship problems. He is not amused when the powers-that-be decide he should join forces with relationship guru Dr. Donna. On the plus side, it does bring him into contact with Dr. Donna’s attractive assistant, Rachel.

It’s a relationship built on half-truths between two people seeking fame and fortune for opposite reasons.

If you’re looking for a novel with a strong and overt faith thread, then One Thing I Know isn’t the novel for you. But if you’re looking for well-written fiction with a set-up ripe with misunderstanding and understated Christian themes, then One Thing I Know might be just what you’re looking for.

Thanks to Howard Books and NetGalley for providing a free ebook for review.

About Kara Isaac

Kara Isaac is a RITA® Award winning author who lives in Wellington, New Zealand where she writes contemporary romance with heart and humor. Her supportive husband has not read any of her books because they contain “way too much talking and not enough gunfights”. When she’s not chasing three little people or working her “real” job, she spends her time writing horribly bad first drafts and wishing you could get Double Stuf Oreos in New Zealand.

About One Thing I Know

She has the whole world fooled. But the one man who just may see through her holds not only the key to her success, but also her heart…

Rachel Somers is America’s #1 relationship coach—America just doesn’t know it. Rachel writes the books, but her Aunt Donna plays the face of the operation. Living in fear of their secret being exposed, Rachel has no choice but to keep up the charade or lose the big money required to care for her father. With the deadline for their next book closing in, Rachel finds herself out of inspiration and running out of time. The last thing she needs is her aunt and publicist concocting a harebrained scheme to join forces with some radio star in the hope it will help deliver the elusive next book idea.

Lucas Grant is a star of late night radio—though it’s come with an unexpected price of hoards of women who keep calling his sports show to ask him for relationship advice. They make his ratings look great, but they also mean he has to waste hours talking to people like Dr. Donna Somerville about feelings instead of his first love: football. When a big-time producer calls, it looks like his hard work is about to pay off. But the offer comes with a catch—the producer is convinced Dr. Donna is not what she seems and he wants Lucas to discover her secret. To do that, he needs to win over her tight-lipped assistant who holds the key to his success and—he begins to suspect—his heart. Can love find a way through the lies that force them apart?
