New Book Arrival: Immaculate Deception by Courtney J. Webb

The publisher, Outskirts Press, generously sent me a copy of Immaculate Deception for review.

Sexy Craig Connery has just finished two years in a British prison for a crime he didn't commit. And he can't wait to reunite with his family and assume his old life: a ladies man and petty thief.

But as he makes his way home, Craig becomes the sole witness to a horrific single-car accident. Killed is the driver-whose uncanny resemblance to Craig presents an opportunity to change his life forever. In one rash decision, Craig takes the man's identification. No longer Craig Connery, he becomes James Kempster. Father James Kempster.

Now, this decidedly unreligious man must make it as a man of God. His first mission? Running a nursing home in regional Australia!

What follows is an uproarious and high-stakes farce of biblical proportions as Craig dissembles his way through a life he knows nothing about. Along the way, he'll gain entree into a world whose secrets rival his own-and discover the shocking truth about the church, the elderly and himself.

At once comical, quirky and deeply touching, Immaculate Deception is a novel of unconventional faith and the power of personal discovery.
