About This 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.

“Tamara Leigh takes her experienced romance hand and delights readers with Chick-Lit that sparkles and characters who come alive.” 
- Kristin Billerbeck, author of The Trophy Wives Club for Splitting Harriet

Faking Grace is a delight! I loved this story with its fun, quirky characters, its outside-the-bubble look at the culture of Christianity, and a storyline that kept me turning pages. I could hardly put it down. Highly recommended!”
- Marlo Schalesky, award-winning author of Beyond the Night

“Tamara’s Leigh’s commentary on cultural Christianity in Faking Grace is incisive and thoughtful. Rather than force the topic in an overblown, preachy way, Leigh effectively delivers the message of pursuing authentic faith through a compelling story that hooks the reader from the first page. And my guess is that plenty of single girls are going to be crushing on that charming Brit Jack Prentiss.”
- Christa Ann Banister, author of Around the World in 80 Dates and Blessed Are the Meddlers

“A delightful, charming book! Faking Grace has romance, truth, and a dollop of insanity, making Tamara Leigh a permanent addition to my list of favorite authors. Enjoy!”
- Ginger Garrett, author of In the Shadow of Lions and Beauty Secrets of the Bible

Faking Grace is a witty, warmhearted lesson in how not to be a Christian. Maizy Grace made me think about my own faith journey and how we all sometimes fake it until we make it. What a delightful book!”
- Lenora Worth, author of Mountain Sanctuary and Secret Agent Minister

“I love this story of a real Christian struggling with real attacks of conscience and spiritual growth. As always, Tamara Leigh kept me entertained, laughing, and learning.”
- Rebeca Seitz, author of Sisters, Ink and Coming Unglued

“Tamara Leigh does a fabulous job looking at the faults, the love, the hypocrisy, and the grace of Christians in a way that’s entertaining and fun. Maizy Grace is a crazy character I couldn’t help but like. I loved this book and highly recommend it!”
- Camy Tang, author of Sushi for One? and Only Uni

“Clever. Insightful. Faking Grace is a joy to read, and Maizy Stewart is hilarious. I couldn’t help but cheer for her along her bumpy journey to stop faking grace and start finding it.”
- Melanie Dobson, author of Going for Broke and The Black Cloister
