Book Review: Faking Grace

n307672Faking Grace by Tamara Leigh
Book Description: All she wants is a job. All she needs is religion. How hard can it be?

Maizy Grace Stewart dreams of a career as an investigative journalist, but her last job ended in disaster when her compassion cost her employer a juicy headline. A part-time gig at a Nashville newspaper might be her big break.

A second job at Steeple Side Christian Resources could help pay the bills, but Steeple Side only hires committed Christians. Maizy is sure she can fake it with her Five-Step Program to Authentic Christian Faith–a plan of action that includes changing her first name to Grace, buying Jesus-themed accessories, and learning “Christian Speak.” If only Jack Prentiss, Steeple Side’s managing editor and two-day-stubbled, blue-jean-wearing British hottie wasn’t determined to prove her a fraud.
When Maizy’s boss at the newspaper decides that she should investigate–and expose–any skeletons in Steeple Side’s closet, she must decide whether to deliver the dirt and secure her career or lean on her newfound faith, change the direction of her life, and pray that her Steeple Side colleagues–and Jack–will show her grace.
Author Bio:Tamara Leigh is the best-selling author of eleven novels, including Perfecting Kate, Splitting Harriet, and Stealing Adda. She began writing romance novels to “get the stories out her head.” Over the course of one providential year, she gave birth to her first child, committed her life to Christ, gave up a career in speech pathology, and released her first novel. Tamara and her husband, David, live with their two sons in Tennessee.

My Thoughts: I have never read anything by Tamara Leigh before but I defiantly will again. I loved that her characters are real they have flaws and we love them for it. Tamara writes with a funny and witty style that is a joy to read!
I loved how Tamara writes in a way that shows how non-Christians ‘think’ Christians act as well as in a way that makes Christians question if they are just ‘faking it’? And she does it all while getting us to laugh and enjoy the story. You learn right along with Maizy as to what being a Christian really is even if she was just faking it and you are at the edge of your seat waiting to see what will happen when the truth comes out. If your looking for a light story you cant go wrong with Faking Grace. I loved it and cant wait to pick up another book by Tamara Leigh.
A copy of this book was given to me by WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group in exchange for an honest review.
