The Trouble with Love Blog Tour 
Welcome to the Blog Tour and Giveaway for The Trouble with Love by Toni Shiloh, hosted by JustRead Publicity Tours!


The Trouble with Love by Toni Shiloh Title: The Trouble with Love
Series: Faith and Fortune #1
Author: Toni Shiloh
Release Date: May 26, 2020
Genre: Christian Chick Lit

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.

W. 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 and Fortune.

“Music touched my soul like nothing else.  It was the one time I truly came alive and all the cares of the world faded away.”

The Trouble With Love is a fabulous introduction to Toni Shiloh’s new Christian Chick Lit series, Faith and Fortune.  Humor, romance, friendship, and even a bit of suspense…this book has something for everyone. 

In The Trouble With Love, pop star Holiday Brown shares a house in Manhattan with two of her famous friends, Tori and Octavia.  When Tori’s brother Emmett stays with them during his house renovations, Holiday and Emmett’s longtime apparent dislike for each other takes a surprising turn.

Toni Shiloh brings a needed diversity to Christian fiction, and her writing style is very appealing to readers. Typically, I am not a fan of first-person point of view, but Toni Shiloh absolutely nails it!  In choosing to write in first-person point of view, she shares a unique insight into the heroine’s thoughts and feelings with readers.  Even though Holiday, Tori, and Octavia are all famous and wealthy, they have insecurities and struggles that readers can easily relate to. 

Toni Shiloh’s writing is rich with beautiful messages of faith, including a developing romance with two wonderful characters at varying stages of their own spiritual journeys.  The author shares the powerful message of God’s love for us. 

The Trouble With Love is highly recommended for readers of inspirational fiction.  The cliffhanger at the end of the novel has me eager to read The Truth About Fame, book two in the Faith & Fortune series, which releases in July 2020.

*I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author/publisher and was not required to write a positive review. All opinions expressed are mine.

There were so many wonderful quotes in this book.  Here are a few additional favorites:

“ ‘He loves you, Holiday Brown.  Has always loved you.  And wants you to know that His love will never change.  It can sustain you, get you through anything, even heartache.’ ”

“ ‘From the moment I decided I wanted to marry, I prayed for my future wife.  Prayed that God would be very present in her life.  That He would protect her and bless her.  That I would know when I found her and be the man she needs me to be.’ ”

“The man before us looked like dark chocolate perfection sculpted into human form.”

I categorize The Trouble with Love as a 3 (having a strong faith message), which is perfect for readers who enjoy inspirational fiction that draws them deeper into the Scripture.
