One Little Secret
By Allison Bottke

Allison Bottke was new me when I read this book. She has a personality that will blow you away, and that personality flows over into her writing.

"One Little Secret" is a book that took me by surprise. Not because the story was so shocking as much as it hit so close to home. We all have lost dreams. Dreams that we have allowed to die because of circumstances, people or just life in general. My dream was the same dream as the heroine in "One Little Secret". Ursul

I purchased this book secondhand at a used book store while on vacation. I had never heard of the author or the book before, but the cover caught my eye and the very brief back description sounded like it would be a fluffy, fun story. I like music-themed books so this seemed right up my alley!

Oh it was definitely a fluffy book. Here's the plot: A L.A. suburban housewife named Ursula Rhoades gets to fill in for her son Victor's band when the band's lead singer is in the hospital and can't make an
I didn't realize it when I selected this book, but it's in the Christian Fiction category, which I didn't even realize existed. At any rate, while it involves a woman newly an empty-nester with an attorney husband out of state for an extended case, the fact that she would follow an old dream without letting the family she's supposedly so close to in on her new adventure just doesn't ring true and makes no sense to me...she's not doing anything wrong or inappropriate, yet it's treated as though s ...more
A Christian book which is a bit idealistic about following your dreams. I liked it well enough. It was interesting. It was about Ursula Rhoades, Hollywood housewife who had once dreams of winning a Grammy. An unforseen incident leads her to sing with her son's band and she is then discovered by Nik Preval, a star of Justin Timberlake proportions with a famous father to boot. Together they go on to make an album of classic love songs unbeknownst to anyone including Ursula's entertainment lawyer h ...more

Sweet. A bit preachy. I'm glad it eventually got away from the message that a woman's place is in the home and turned toward a message of mutual respect and love. Ursula was a great character.
Listened to on my Mp3 player. Christian Inspirational Fiction at it's best. You leave the book feeling uplifted and happy. The book did kind of drag on in the middle but all the great spots made up for that. A book about marriage, secrets, hollywood, and dreams come true. Great ending!!

I didn't think I'd like this one, but I was pleasantly surprised!

The only "issue" I had was that a lot of brand names were mentioned, and I was "lost" because I'd not heard of any of them.

It is a get away there is no intricate story not so many deep characters as it is described it is upbeat and changes your mood. loved the song references. Over all not bad :)
Listened to the audio of this book, Christian fluff. Lots of inconsistencies in the life of the main character. Just like me.
