Would you rather go to the future like in …“Volition” by Chautona Havig?
“I should have made that left turn at Tucumcari.”
It’s Doctor Who meets mail-order brides when “rescuers” from the future arrive to save Andi Flanders from a happy life with her loving family and fiancé.
Okay, so they meant to get her suicidal roommate, but hey. Mistakes happen, right?
And as far as Andi’s concerned, they can fix them—by sending her home.
However, when she learns what happens when she disappears from home, Andi has an impossible choice. Stay in the government-controlled futuristic world she despises and never see her family again or return to the twenty-first century and doom an innocent person to death.
Volition— Life and death decisions are so overrated.
Or the present like in … “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?
“Love and a Little White Lie” is not what I was expecting, I thought it would be more of a comedy, not quite so … Attention-grabbing on the subject of faith. I took forever to get around to reading it, and I now wish I had read it right away, it was just that good.
January Sanders was a heroine I actually liked from the beginning, I didn’t agree with her beliefs, which made me glad I liked her, the journey of learning about God and faith is one that shows God’s love in a simple and pure way.
There were so many little things that made this book so, hmmm, I’m not sure what, because it was good, near to perfect and I cannot wait for more books from Tammy L. Gray!
The romance was one that I enjoyed very much and I loved the ending to the story.
