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 they only hire committed Christians.
Maizy is sure she can fake it with her five-step program to authentic christian faith. If only Jack Prentiss, Steeple Side's managing editor and British hottie, wasn't determined to prove her a fraud.
When Maizy's newspaper boss pressures her to 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 colleagues - and Jack - will show her grace.

Loved the way the story weaves together the real struggles people of faith have. Narrator is my favorite!

Fun story, wrong reader
I generally love Tamara Leigh stories, and I enjoyed this one as well. The moment at the beginning where Grace tries to look and talk the part of a Christian is particularly hysterical. However, the narrator, usually so great in the historical books set in England, is poorly suited for a book set in the American south. Her accent wavers from standard American to deep south to British to something else, sometimes within the same paragraph. The effect of having one British character was completely lost. I enjoyed the book, but I'm glad I also downloaded the ebook.

What makes a Christian....well a Christian?! the theme of the book was, as you guessed, very deep. Grece's journey was hard to follow at some points, her being torn out between what's right and what she think she wants was dramatic and very well written. I found a lot of passages that stuck to my mind and made me meditate, like 'nobody is Christian enough' - we all need grace, forgiveness and acceptance. This was not just a pretty love story, it was that and a lot more.
