Review of Splitting Harriet by Tamara Leigh

Harriet Bissett is the prodigal daughter with the weight of being a preachers kid. Harri struggles daily to accept the grace and forgiveness for her rebellious youth after returning to the fold of her father's church. Harri is determined to avoid temptaion if it is the last thing she does. She soon discovers just how tempting life can be when she meets the new big shot church consultant named Maddox McCray. Harri just wants to know who he thinks he is with his tattoos, long hair and loud motorcycle. Harri is a new woman and she is determined to stay that way.

I fell in love with Harri with her badgirl past and imperfect present who loves God and jelly bellies while living in a senior citizens trailer park. Leigh has created a character that any woman can relate too. Leigh is an amazing writer who adds humor to a serious message that we are forgiven by grace. I strongly recommend this book. This is one of those books that you wont want to put down until the last page is turned. This is delightful chicklit and I give it an A+.

Thank you so much for reviewing Splitting Harriet and for your kind words. I'm so glad that you related to Harriet. I also relate to her, which is why she needed to be written. Ah, self therapy! Have a blessed week.
