Now I'm giving away Faking Grace by Tamara Leigh

To enter to win a copy of this book post a comment about why it intrigues you and I'll put your name in the hat. Please leave me a way to contact you if you win.



About the book:

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.

My thoughts:

I loved Splitting Harriet. This story didn't grab me as much as Splitting Harriet had, but Faking Grace definitely has intriguing content for people who like to laugh at themselves and poke fun at cultural Christianity. :)

This sounds hilarious! A new author for me, but I've never read a story about someone trying to 'fake' Christianity. LOL, sounds funny :).

I find it intriguing to read stories (real or fictional) about people who set out to discredit Christianity and then God turns it around. Please add me. Thanks Michelle!

I think the tug we often feel between what's right and what the world expects of us is totally relatable and I'd really like reading about this.

I like how she begins with thinking she has to fake her Christianity by changing her name to Grace and studying Five-Step Christianity Program. Then, she has to make a decision whether she should change her life and have real faith. Please enter me in your drawing. Thanks, Cindi

This sounds like a very funny and enjoyable book to read. It also has an underlying message about the struggle of choosing right from wrong.

Smilingsal said...

A person really wants a job if she changes her name, wears things to reflect a fake devotion, and learns the jargon to go with the job. That's a funny premise. I'd like to read this one.

Trying to convince Christians that you're one of them sounds like such an interesting plot. I'd love to read this book.
