Cover Reveal – The Trouble with Love by Toni Shiloh

I’m super excited to be teaming up with Toni Shiloh today and revealing the cover of her brand new book The Trouble with Love (Faith & Fortune #1).  Be sure to add it to your Goodreads “want to read” list (click here)!

Available today for preorder on Amazon (click here)!

About this book:

I, Holiday Brown, have it all. A platinum record. Multi-million dollar home in Manhattan that I share with my two best friends. Life is looking fantastic until my roommate’s brother decides to bunk in our guestroom while his house gets renovated.

Emmett Bell has always been the bane of my existence. He’s annoying, stubborn, a know it all, and just might be the most gorgeous man I’ve ever laid eyes on. But I refuse to fall for him. Then his sister’s threatened by a stalker and dynamics change. His unwavering faith isn’t quite as self-righteous as I’d always thought, and maybe he has a good side I’ve overlooked all these years.

Or maybe it’s all too much trouble.

The Trouble With Love is the first book in the Christian Chick Lit series: Faith & Fortune.

Are you ready for the cover?!

Risking Love (Maple Run #4) by Toni Shiloh

Synopsis:

Nikki lives with a perfect trifecta of noes. No guys. No dates. No way. After years of keeping men at bay, Nikki Gordon has it down to a science. No one, not even the sweet, hunky Shorty Smalls can change her mind. Period. So if she’s got it all figured out, why does her heart sink to her toes when she sees Shorty with another woman?
Read Risking Love today and see what happens when you risk your heart to the care of a good man.

  Risking Love (Maple Run #4)

My Thoughts:

When it comes to a book written by Toni Shiloh, I don’t even need to read the back-cover copy. It’s a must buy! I know that I am in for a delightful story, one that I will live alongside the characters. A story that will not only linger in my memory but one that I will grow from as well. Risking Love checks all the boxes. I enjoyed my time with these friends and didn’t want it to end.

A trip to Maple Run with Toni Shiloh is always a delight! The characters in Toni Shiloh’s books are real, honest, people. They make mistakes, they have baggage that weighs them down. But regardless of past hurts and past mistakes, they learn and grow and they lean on God and press together with a community of God-fearing friends.

Risking Love can be read as a stand-alone, however, there are appearances from friends we have met in earlier books. Honestly, all of the stories are fantastic, so you might as well get them because you don’t want to miss out on knowing this delightful community of characters!

(I receive complimentary books for review from publishers, publicists, and/or authors, including Netgalley. I am not required to write positive reviews. The opinions I have expressed are my own.

Deck The Shelves (Heartfalls Romance #1) by Toni Shiloh

Synopsis:

Kendall Jackson is the proud owner of Heartfalls’ bookstore, The Cozy Shelf. Her life is one straight out of the pages, except she’s missing that leading man. Although she has a crush on the handsome auto mechanic, Quinton Hendricks, Kendall wants an old-fashioned type of romance—the stuff swoon-worthy romance books are made of. But Quinton seems to need a little prodding.

Something about Kendall sparks hope in Quinton Hendricks that love could be his again. Only being abandoned by his ex-wife has made him cautious to the point of non-moving.

Can two people hesitant on second chances find love as they Deck the Shelves?

My Thoughts:

Toni Shiloh brings the sleepy town of Heartfalls, New York vibrantly to life inside this bookishly delightful Christmas Novella. Step into the Cozy Shelf bookstore and meet our heroine, Kendall Jackson. Be sure to grab a hot drink from the hospitality table, and take your time browsing the wide array of books.

Kendall finds enjoyment getting lost in the pages of a good book. She enjoys reading to the children when they come in for story time and the cozy community within the warm walls of the bookstore. Sparks fly when Quinton Hendricks visits, but often Kendall is too shy to talk to him beyond a few words. Her friends suggest dropping a note inside his bag the next time he stops in and purchases a book.

After being abandoned by his x-wife only months after the birth of their son, Quinton Hendricks is cautious about forming an attachment to the beautiful bookstore owner. But he can’t seem to stop his racing heart and tangled emotions whenever she is near.

With strong threads of faith and the reminder that God will lead us to his perfect plan in our lives if we let go of our fears and trust Him. This heartwarming Christmas Novella is sure to not only put a smile on your face but get you into the Christmas mood.

(I purchased a copy of this book for my personal collection.)

Finally Accepted (Freedom Lake #3) by Toni Shiloh

Synopsis:

There’s only one thing Chloe Smith has ever wanted: family. Yet the DNA results she’s received have thrown her life into a tailspin. Her utmost desire has ended up being the catalyst for shaking her faith. She doesn’t even know who she is anymore, and she’s certainly too messed up for her longtime crush to give her more than a second glance.

Darryl Jones is struggling between his past and the grace God so freely offers. His sins feel too big for him to handle, let alone expect the woman of his dreams to accept. Chloe is the only woman he’s ever wanted and the one he doesn’t deserve.

As they form a tentative relationship and examine their faith, Chloe and Darryl ache to know they are finally accepted and fully loved.

My Thoughts:

I have enjoyed every story in the Freedom Lake series! Toni Shiloh puts an enormous amount of heart, truth and the love of God into everything she writes. This heart-wrenching story of two people searching for the love of family and for acceptance is sure to give you a clearer image of our Father and his amazing love for us all!

Chole and Darryl are two people longing for family, for grace and acceptance. In truth, that is all something that we each long for. In learning to rely more fully on God, to wait on His perfect timing we can come to grow in our relationship with God.

This story wraps up the series beautifully, teaches us lessons, and invites us to draw closer to God. I give this wonderful story 4 stars and would encourage you to grab a copy and settle in for a delightful story that is sure to warm your heart!
