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 hoards 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?


There's one thing I know, and that is author Kara Isaac knows how to make me laugh. I know that picking up one of her stories will entertain me from deep within. That is the case with her upcoming release, One Thing I Know. 

With a big secret that puts many things on the line for Rachel, including the budding romance between her and Lucas, it's difficult even for readers to see (read) how it unfolds. What I do know is from secrets to lies, there's an unsurprisingly bit of truth and realism that parallels life. With one deciding moment, our characters lives were dictated by it because things can just snowballed and get out of hand. How everything plays out is what One Thing I Know is about - the journey, the realization and the revelation. From issues of past regrets, pain to knowing how and when to let go, and finding the faith to trust in God and in others highlights the story and our characters' journey. Second chances are mere ways for readers to realize there's more depth in the truth of things and in a person's life. A great story to enjoy for the romance of it, but also to venture beyond the lightness to experience its insight.
