Faking Grace Review


DSC 6501blog

After reading Splitting Harriet, I decided I'd like to read more books by Tamara Leigh, so when Faking Grace came up I requested to review it.

Maizy Grace Stewart needs to be able to pay the bills, so even though her faith has been on the back burner for years, she fakes being a strong Christian to get a job at Steeple Side, a Christian magazine company.  But then her boss at the local newspaper wants her to investigate Steeple Side's employees and write an article about all their dirty laundry.  Will Grace betray the friends she makes at Steeple Side or risk losing her career as a reporter?

I like Tamara Leigh's books - they are so fun to read, and often they make me laugh out loud while I'm reading, which is always the sign of a good story to me.  I like feeling emotionally invested in how the story plays out, and Leigh's characters and funny situations drew me in.  

The main character, Grace, was likable even when her deceptions were making me cringe.  The story kept me interested clear to the end.  I also liked the message of not being just a "cultural Christian" and extending grace to our brothers and sisters in Christ when they make mistakes.  Two thumbs up!

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