Then There Was You + Giveaway!!


Then There Was You by Kara Isaac

Paige McAllister needs to do something drastic. Her boyfriend can’t even commit to living in the same country, her promised promotion is dead on arrival and the simultaneous loss of her brother and her dream of being a concert violinist has kept her playing life safe and predictable for six years. Things need to change. A moment of temporary insanity finds her leaving her life in Chicago to move to Sydney, Australia. There she finds herself, against many of her convictions, as a logistics planner for one of Australia’s biggest churches, and on a collision course with her boss’s son.

Josh Tyler fronts a top-selling worship band and is in demand all over the world. But, in the past, his failed romantic relationships almost destroyed both his reputation and his family. He's determined to never risk it happening again. The last thing he needs is some American girl tipping his ordered life upside down. Especially one who despises everything he’s ever worked for and manages to push every button he has.

When Josh and Paige are thrown together to organize his band’s next tour, the sparks fly. But can they find a way to bridge the differences that pull them apart? Or will they choose the safety and security of what they know over taking a chance on something that will require them to risk everything?

My Thoughts:

In her third novel, author, Kara Isaac, does not disappoint! Set in the idyllic Australian landscape readers are introduced to event planner extraordinaire, Paige McAllister, and world-renowned worship leader, Josh Tyler. Ms. Isaac's witty humor spills onto the pages and into the character's lives as they navigate the murky waters of regret.

This romantic comedy is reminiscent of a bygone era when the meet-cute was enough to send a heart soaring and sarcastic flirtation was endearing. It's the kind of story that Gene Kelly and Debbie Reynolds would be perfect for!!

Ms. Isaac's story-telling is snappy, heart-warming, and delivers all the feels through well-developed characters and a relatable plot. This is Christian fiction at its best and makes Kara Isaac an author whose books will always have a place on my shelf.
