"GRACE fights the lump RISING in her throat. For a MOMENT she is LOST in thought, remembering WHAT IT HAS TAKEN to get TO THIS POINT..."Grace Cambridge is a young Black Christian with a new husband, old friends, and a shocking moral dilemma. A proverbial "cat fight" opens the story and draws you into a complex relational web. The book peels through layers of dysfunction between Grace and Trina and follows their individual, sometimes intertwining, lives to reveal how they find their way back to Christ and to each other. Grace is intelligent, determined, well-spoken yet vulnerable. You want her to be happy, you want her to succeed. Grace's Christianity isn't sugar-coated. Her faith is real and so is her life---riddled with plenty of twists, turns, and conflicts. As Grace's relationship with God is challenged she questions her identity and is faced with a life-changing decision. She deals with everyday issues, sometimes successfully; sometimes not. Grace's experiences are not much different than yours---how she handles them might be.

I am a college student with very little time to read books for fun. I have not ever been a person that would read a lengthy book, especially a 400+ pager. Immediately from the beginning I was taken and never put the book down. This book is captivating and enriching. I spent hour after hour trying to see what would happen next. At the time of reading this book, I was going through a lot in my life. Fall from grace is the book that picked me up and made me realize that whatever the problem is, God is still in control. This book aided in renewing my relationship with Christ. As a college student it is very hard to walk that straight and narrow, but Fall from grace allowed me to realize that I am not doing this alone. I recommend this book to anyone. It is an easy read and I promise you will not be dissapointed. I only wish there was a part II.
I like the way the forgiveness brought them all back together again. It was a good, relaxing read.
I have just finished reading this book for the 2nd time in less than 2 months. I fell in love with Mike & Grace's characters in the first novel and decided to re-read both books. Ms. Phillips has an awesome gift of story-telling. She describes realistic dilemnas facing Christians and gives practical advice on how to get right with God, without sounding 'preachy.' Excellent Read! A must have!
This book is an exceptional read because the characters life experiences are similar to that of real Christians. It's inspiring and makes one consider his/her own walk with God and how life situations can make one fall from grace.
This was a very enjoyable mystery novel by Dale Philips. Zack Taylor is enlisted by his girlfriend, Allison, to help her cousin, Bonnie, who has been wrongly accused of murdering her boss. It would seem, however, that she has been made a scapegoat. There are plenty of potential suspects from the list of family members and business associates, all with compelling motives, but the police seem hell-bent on looking the other way and opting for the easy way out: Bonnie had motive enough and that was that. Zack gets the bit between his teeth – he knows injustice when he sees it and does his utmost to clear Bonnie’s name; the minefield of corruption, greed, infidelity, revenge, fraud, selfishness, and sex that he uncovers leaves no doubt at all that she is completely innocent. This is the second book in the Zack Taylor series – I have not read the first yet – but I was instantly smitten. I was drawn into the action instantly and Zack is easily likeable, if not somewhat captivating – he is loyal, compassionate, determined and focused. His investigations result in considerably more than a black eye on more than one occasion, but he remains undeterred – sadly at some personal and emotional cost. This was a well-written mystery, well-paced and well-constructed. The baddies ranged from unscrupulous to abhorrently violent – an excellent contrast to those who are and become close to Zack. I finished the book with mixed feelings. I was sad to not be able to turn another page with Zack on it, but consoled by the fact that I will bump into him again in Book One, A Memory of Grief, and Book Three, A Shadow on the Wall. Highly recommended.
