One Little Secret by Allison Bottke

What happens when a self absorbed pop star meets a family-oriented christian stay-at-home-mom? When Nic sees Ursula for the first time singing classic songs with her sons band, he's convinced she is the one to team up with to do a classic-style cd. They have the talent, but what about the working chemistry? Ursula is used to making sacrifices for her family, but in the end, taking on the opportunity that Nic offers may cause her to sacrifice that very family. Is there ever such a thing as a "little" secret?

Set straight from todays tabloids, and peppered with an insatuable appetite for giving details, this book will keep you interested until the very end. Hard to put down, hard to forget once you've read it, "One Little Secret" crosses the barrier between christians and non-believers, showing that you really can be in the world, but not of the world. Avoiding unbelievers won't get the message of salvation across. It is in caring enough to cross into their world that we make a difference.

Bottke's well written fiction leaves you looking for her next work. She is an author you definately want to keep your eye out for.
