One Thing I Know by Kara Isaac ~ Review

Lucie's Review:
Rachel Somers in the level-headed relationship #1 relationship expert in the country, but nobody knows it. Her mother died when she was young and she has a difficult relationship with her father who is in ill health, a result of his heavy drinking days. Her Aunt Donna is the face of her brand, but Rachel is the brains.

Lucas Grant is an editorial sports commentator, who has begun dabbling in relationship advice after a random woman caller asked on air, and he gave his classic tell-it-like-it-is answer. Now he is sports radio shows is being flooded with calls from women seeking his relationship expertise. His big break is on the horizon, but it comes with a catch, his producer wants him to find out Dr. Donna's secret.

Rachel must keep up the charade to help her troubled father, will she lose it all?

Rachel is quiet and unassuming, she likes to stick to the shadows in favors of her Aunt taking the spotlight as a better fit for the brand. She had a troubled childhood and her aunt is the only one she has been able to count on. She is conflicted, and searching for answers. I really liked her college friend, who was an admirable example of faith.

Lucas is is surprised when giving relationship advice becomes the most popular part of his show, he desperately wants to take the next big step with his career. He is close with his family, and is intrigued by the willowy assistant to Dr. Donna.

Rachel and Lucas are surrounded by good Christian people, who have faith and it inspires them to take a second look at things, I don't want to spoil the ending but I felt that the direction of the main character's spiritual lives was left unresolved. That bothered me. It was a slow burner for me, and while I liked the premise, I felt like I had higher expectations. This was a fun read, with a romantic comedy setup. But overall, it just wasn't the book for me.
