Faking Grace by Tamara Leigh

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 read this book several years ago when my sister got an ARC of it and I really enjoyed it. So when I got the chance to get if for review I jumped on it and set to rereading this book. Thankfully  it was as good as I'd remembered and I enjoyed it just as much the second time!

The whole idea of someone “faking” being a Christian at a Christian company was unique and interesting and made for some humorous situations. The characters were all fun especially Maizy/Grace! Jack was pretty cool but I kinda wish we'd have gotten more about him and that there would have been more of his and Maizy's relationship since it seemed kinda like “poof they like each other”. But other than that this was a great, well-written, entertaining read that I recommend for those who enjoy Christian chick-lit!
