Allison Pittman in her new book, “All For A Story book coverAll For A Story” Book Two in the All For A series published by Tyndale House Publishers brings us into the life of Monica Bisbaine.

From the Back Cover:  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.

Max is a man of morals, Monica is a flirt that likes to party and go to the speakeasys. She is even seeing a married man. Max takes over the newspaper that Monica is the gossip reporter for and Max sends her to the anti-flirt society for a story. Monica is a fish-out-of-water trying to learn why these women are trying to live against the very lifestyle that she lives. What do you do when your world is shaken and turned upside down? Allison Pittman is an extraordinary writer and she has assembled a unique cast of characters to bring this highly interesting story to life. Hope, restoration, and change are all brought to the table as Monica works with what she discovers. This is a page-turner as the story is highly interesting and you do not want to miss a moment of what is going on. Allison Pittman knows how to weave a captivating story with wonderful characters that breathe.  I enjoyed reading this book and look forward to more from this highly talented author.
