Publisher's Description

Monica Bisbaine loves being a modern girl in the Roaring Twenties. Her job writing a gossip column allows her access to all the local speakeasys in Washington, D.C., where she can dance the night away—and find fodder for her next article. But when the owner of the Capitol Chatter newspaper passes away, Monica wonders what will happen to her job, and the lifestyle she loves.

Max Moore may hold the title of editor-in-chief for evangelist Aimee Semple McPherson’s paper, The Bridal Call, but Aimee calls all the shots. So when Max learns that his great-uncle has passed away, leaving him all his earthly possessions, Max resigns and heads to D.C. Determined to take over the Capitol Chatter, infuse it with his values, and turn it into a respectable paper, Max is soon bumping up against the equally determined Monica Bisbane.

Under Max’s direction, Monica embarks on her most challenging assignment yet: infiltrating and reporting on the Anti-Flirt Society. Though reluctant at first, as Monica meets and mingles with the young women of the club, she begins to question the innocence of her flirtatious lifestyle. And when romance begins to blossom between Max and Monica, she must choose where her loyalties lie: with the young women of the society or the alluring pull of the speakeasy and its inhabitants.

    All for a Story is another great novel by Allison Pittman. Like her other two books, the story is set during the Roaring 20s. Monica is just another modern girl and she works for a gossip column which allows her to have access to prominent people in D.C. whom are generally her targets for her articles. However, when the owner of the gossip column dies, things at the column change when the new owner takes control. Max Moore, the nephew of the gossip column, does not like how the gossip column is run and decides to make changes that will make it more respectable. However, Monica is determined to do things her way but accepts a challenge from Max and begins to question her own lifestyle. Will Max succeed in making the column more respectable? Will Monica change her ways or will she choose to continue with her flirtatious ways? Do Max and Monica have a future together?

    I 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.

    3 stars.

    I 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!

    This review was written for All for a Story - eBook.
    This 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.

    I 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.
