Then There Was You by Kara Isaac

Paige McAllister needs a change. For six years she’s been stuck in a rut. She has a job that’s going nowhere, a boyfriend who can’t seem to stay in the same country she’s in, and worst of all, she’s a bridesmaid in her 19-year-old sister’s wedding. She’s 32, for crying out loud! Shouldn’t she be getting married first?

When Paige realizes at the wedding that Alex has no intention of ever marrying her, she dumps him. He’s confident he can win her back. She says she’s moving to Australia. Knowing her fear of flying, he basically laughs at her. She says, “Watch me.”

Josh Tyler is the lead singer and face of one of the top worship bands in the world. Returning from tour, he bumps into Paige in Chicago’s airport. When he sees the same blonde getting off the plane in Sydney, he’s less than impressed. She smells of bourbon and throws up on her shoes. He thinks she’s spent the whole flight drinking. When he finds out that his mother has hired her as the logistics expert for their women’s conference, “Grace”, he can’t believe they didn’t check her out to find out she’s an alcoholic.
Paige’s one experience with a mega-church left her jaded and suspicious of the motives of church leaders. How can the only job that interests her be working for one? Telling herself it will look good on her resume, Paige accepts the position intending to stay on the outside of the actual congregation. Can she stick to her convictions about mega-churches when everyone she encounters is different than what she expects?

I LOVED this book. I laughed. I cried. I giggled (even giggle-snorted a few times.) This book was such a joy! Kara Isaac brings us two characters who have been burned by life in the past. Both are wary about putting their hearts in another’s hands. Each is suspicious of the other but the sparks that fly when they are together are unmistakable – to the reader, at least. The theme of God’s grace pouring out to cover a multitude of sins comes through loud and clear, for both characters, and the HEA is completely beautiful. In just three books, Kara Isaac has become a MUST BUY author for me and I can’t recommend this book highly enough! It’s at least a 7 star in my book!

Rated G: I saw no issues with this one.
