On My Nightstand - Faking Grace by Tamara Leigh

Maizy Grace Stewart has a part-time job with a Nashville newspaper, but it's not enough to pay the bills. She applies to Steeple Side Christian Resources for a second part-time position, but can she convince them she's a practicing Christian?

She concocts the 5-Step Program to Authentic Christian Faith and drops her first name. Her plan might stand a chance if Jack Prentiss, Managing Editor and to-die-for handsome Brit, wasn't trying to prove she's faking grace.

While at Steeple Side, she meets people who are flawed but doing their best to live the Christian life. When she's pressured to do a negative story on life at a Christian company, she's torn between reverting to Maizy Grace or protecting her new friends.

Tamara Leigh scores again with this fun tale of romance and spiritual growth. Sit back and enjoy Maizy Grace's misadventures. If chick lit appeals to you, you'll adore this book.

Disclaimer: I won this book in a blog contest. Neither the author nor the publisher paid me any fee to review it.

I have a niece named "Mazey Grace." Ha ha. It made me laugh to see the name in a book. Thanks for the review.

Hi Jan -

I've enjoyed reading Tamara's books. They're light, but with a serious theme running throughout. She also throws in a dash of humor.

Blessings,
Susan :)

Hi Britt -

Nice to see you out and about. I stopped by your blog the other day. :)

Your niece would probably enjoy reading about a character with her name - assuming she's old enough to read such a grown-up book.

Blessings,
Susan

Hi Kristen -

This is the second book I've read by Tamara that has a writer as the main character. I enjoy the side benefit of getting a behind-the-scenes view.

Blessings,
Susan :)

I'm not a big fan of chick lit, but this one sounds like lots of fun.

Hi Nancy -

I'm not a big chick-lit fan either, but Tamara's books entertained me. Every book also had a strong spiritual theme.

Blessings,
Susan :)

I read one of her books last year and wasn't crazy about it, but this one has a great cover and your review is great as well. I'll give Tamara another try!

Hi T. Anne -

I read five of her books and enjoyed them. Not everyone will like every author, but I hope you do give her another chance.

Blessings,
Susan :)
