Splitting Harriet - 4 stars

Splitting Harriet was a sweet, summer read. I loved how this book was a little different, and not too predictable.

I really enjoyed this book. Harriet is a prodigal turned Pharisee. As a Pastor's kid, she rebelled in her teen years and ended up on the wrong side of a biker bar. Now she is reformed, but grace seems to have lost its place in her life.

When a church consultant threatens to cause turmoil in everything she holds dear, will her faith be enough to see her through?

 I connected with Harriet as a rebel who had to learn about God's grace myself, I know how hard it can be to swing to the extreme side. From the one being judged to the judger. Harriet has to learn how to lighten up and allow God's grace and forgiveness wash over her and others. In the process, Maddox helps reveal some things in her heart that she has kept hidden. Their relationship develops in a very real and entertaining way. They are both very believable characters, as if you could go to your neighborhood church and meet them.

 I have never read a book by this author before, but I certainly will be looking for others from now on.

- I received this book in exchange for my honest review
