Splitting Harriet Review



I requested Splitting Harriet  by Tamara Leigh, just because it looked like it might be a fun book to read. 

Harriet is a former rebel, and she has no intention of going back to those days.  As such she shelters herself by mostly hanging out with older people and staying far away from anything remotely rebellious.  That is until her church hires a consultant who has a tattoo and drives a motorcycle and she has to learn to let down some of her walls and trust God to guide her.

I was a little skeptical reading the back of this book, because I wasn't sure how the author was going to handle the "church politics" part of the plot, but I thought it was tastefully done.  The older people in the story were lovable and loving to Harriet and encouraged her to step out of her comfort zone in healthy ways. I felt like the author kept a good balance in showing the benefits of older/younger church members, hymns/contemporary music, etc. without leaning too much one way or another or making one "side" look bad.

The plot of this book was fun and light-hearted, and kept me wanting to read more!  It was very cleverly written, and interesting to read, and I enjoyed the banter between Harriet and Maddox. This is good Christian chic-lit, and if you like chic-lit I'd recommend checking out this book.  (Note: It's only $1.99 on Christianbook right now, so if you are looking for something to read this summer, it's a good deal!)  

I am looking forward to reading another one of Tamara Leigh's Christian novels soon!

Note: I received this book for free from Blogging For Books in exchange for this review.  This is my honest opinion.
