Faking Grace Review

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.

Faking Grace by Tamara Leigh was a delightful story of love and grace. Its quirky characters and outside look at Christianity was fun and had me turning the pages until the very end. Following Maizy Grace Stewart’s 5-Step Program to Authentic Christian Faith was entertaining to say the least.  Maizy Grace’s initial look on what it takes to be a Christian and how she tried to fulfill what she thought were the expectations had me chuckling at times. Oh, the things she said and did! I highly recommend Faking Grace.
5 out of 5. An Afternoon Snack that was quiet filling. 

I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review.
