Christian chick lit in Hollywood?
Yep. Allison Bottke’s One Little Secret is all of it, wrapped in wit and faith.
If you’ve only seen the book, you have to buy it just to experience the cover! Clever, clever, clever.
I wondered, honestly, could someone like small-town, school teacher, grandmother (who barely looks like one) me find anything relatable in the high-powered, glitzy facade of L.A. that’s the setting for this book?
And, again, yes. I fell in love with Ursula Rhoades at the dinner party she gives for her husband. Any woman who can be outwardly dazzling and charming for the benefit of her husband’s business associates while mentally plotting ways to gently humiliate the snooty women at the table has my vote. I also found Ursula refreshing because she’s a woman who truly loves and adores her husband, even when he has the capacity to make her crazy.
When Nik Prevel-spoiled, too attractive for his own good, and wanting more than he can have-first came along, I did not expect that he and Ursula would find themselves crossing paths. But what keeps One Little Secret moving is the trail of unsuspecting plot twists.
If you need to fall asleep early, this is not the book to open the night before. Be prepared to be entertained, to laugh, and to learn.
As an almost mid-50s woman, I delighted reading about someone who not only dares to dream, but to act. More importantly, though, to read about a woman who lives in the world, and believes in God’s grace, goodness, and forgiveness.
