ONE THING I KNOW by Kara Isaac, Reviewed by Susan Snodgrass

'I know that when nothing makes sense and life is as hard as it's ever been, God is even more present in the middle of all the brokenness. Because Jesus changes everything.'

How do you even begin to write a review that truly expresses how you feel about a book that is just so tremendous, you weep through parts of it?

For years Rachel Somers has been ghostwriting her Aunt Donna's best selling books. She doesn't want to, but it takes the big bucks the books make to pay for her father's expensive health care. She even does some of the media work, too, such as radio call ins with a certain Lucas Grant, sports radio guy. Lucas hates doing this type of work; after all, he's into sports, not relationships, as Donna's books detail. Then he is approached by a big time LA producer, asking him to get behind the secret of Donna's books because he is convinced something is indeed quite fishy. Lucas could use the money to help his own family, too. So he agrees. Neither Lucas nor Rachel ever figured on having feelings for each other; now there are too many lies between them.

This book held me captive. Kara Isaac has a way with words and a story that simply grab the reader's heart and refuse to let go. Every word she writes is worth reading, no skipping ahead, no glossing over to get to the good part, so to speak, but to just read and savor every single word. Then go back and reread certain passages. How does she manage to pull my heart right out of my chest and cause me to weep at the depth of the feelings she has just portrayed? This is one well done book. Do not miss it. Do. Not. Miss. It. Bravo! I will be putting this on my top ten list for 2019 and thinking about it a long time. Definitely one worth a reread and for the keeper shelf.

*My thanks to the publisher for a copy of this book. A positive review was not required. All opinions expressed here are entirely my own.

BackCover Blurb:
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 hordes 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?
