Amy CVAAge: 35-44Gender: female3 Stars Out Of 5All for a StoryAugust 19, 2014Amy CVAAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 3Value: 3Meets Expectations: 2I do not believe this book was a fit for me. I really didn't like Monica, the main character. I did like Max, though, the other main character. There were some humorous parts in the book, that kept me interested, but in general it wasn't enough. The book is part of a series. I will continue to the last book to see what happens and hope I will enjoy it more. I did love the historical aspect of the book and that's what is why I will continue on reading the rest of the series.
ShannahAge: 25-34Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Overall, a good story!August 8, 2014ShannahAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4I was a little disappointed with this story. While the plot was interesting and the dialogue was humorous at times, I feel like the ending was kind of rushed. I wished for more time to develop Monica's faith and Max's place in her life. That being said, I did enjoy the story overall.
Monica Bisbaine is a rare character in the Christian fiction world. Most books I've read, at least lately, focus on the guy being the one that's "loose" and "fast," but not this one. I liked that the author did not try to sugar coat Monica's lifestyle and her choices. I also enjoyed Max Moore's character. He was written with the mind of a real life man. The author didn't try to gloss over his imperfections and his human nature, in favor of making Max a "larger than life" hero, which I truly appreciate. It makes the characters easier to relate to.
The theme, I think, was based on Philippians 4:8, "Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthymeditate on these things." The author does a good job of bringing this point home, especially in Monica's life. We can see, throughout the story, her mind slowly but surely changing.
Despite the fact that I feel the ending was a little rushed, I appreciate the author not wrapping everything up in a neat little package, but giving us enough of a hint to know what would eventually happen. It gives the story a more realistic feel. Overall, I enjoyed the story and will definitely be reading more by this fabulous author!
BookwormAge: 25-344 Stars Out Of 5WittyAugust 8, 2014BookwormAge: 25-34Quality: 5Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4This is a witty story told with a fresh twist, bad girl vs. good boy." (I find it is usually the opposite.) The book started a little slow for me, but ultimately kept my interest and the pacing improved.
The scenes, set in the roaring 20s of Washington DC, are vivid. The characters, especially Monica Brisbaine, are well developed and will surely charm their way into you heart.
Imagine being a self-absorbed, sarcastic, party-girl journalist, gossiping and frolicking around the social scene, simply having a grand old time, when your boss dies suddenly and a new heir, a Christian, changes everything - your job, thoughts, and focus. Well, that creates a delightful book by Allison Pittman, titled, All For A Story.

Ruth1 Stars Out Of 5All for a StoryAugust 8, 2014RuthQuality: 1Value: 1Meets Expectations: 1I found "All for a Story" hard to read. The Christian aspect of prayer and seeking God's will seemed stuck in as an afterthought, and the plot seemed muddled.
reliWIAge: 25-34Gender: female1 Stars Out Of 5DisappointingAugust 4, 2014reliWIAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 1Value: 1Meets Expectations: 1This was rather disappointing. There wasn't a good plot, just a girl going from speak-easy to speak-easy during Prohibition and then a Christian man falling in love with her at first sight. While God was brought into the picture, it didn't seem to be as much about a personal relationship as an acknowledgement. Max acts like she will have to become a Christian before he will officially date her, but in the end confesses his love to her even though she admits she didn't necessarily have a spiritual awakening. So far, I really haven't been too impressed with book by this author. I have one more I will likely read this summer yet. See if that one is any better.
