THE TRUTH ABOUT FAME by Toni Shiloh, Reviewed by Nicole Cook #ReleaseDay

"Despite what most people thought, fame wasn't all it was cracked up to be."

The Truth About Fame is the second book in Toni Shiloh’s new Christian Chick Lit series, Faith and Fortune. It is recommended that the Faith and Fortune series be read in order, starting with The Trouble With Love, since the characters and storylines continue throughout the series.

In The Truth About Fame, supermodel Tori Bell finds herself with a stalker. When her stalker’s threats escalate and Tori’s friends are in danger, it is up to Tori and her handsome bodyguard Marcel Fox to find out the stalker’s identity before it is too late.

Even though best friends Holiday, Tori, and Octavia are all famous and wealthy, they have insecurities and struggles that readers can easily relate to. The Truth About Fame deals with some serious topics, but Toni Shiloh keeps the tone light and adds in humor that her readers are sure to enjoy. The banter between Tori and Marcel is perfectly done and endears me to these wonderful characters.

Toni Shiloh continues to bring a much-needed diversity to Christian fiction, and her writing is rich with beautiful messages of faith. Toni Shiloh’s novels always encourage me to dig deeper into the Scripture and reflect on my own life. I have loved every single one of her books, but I think this book might be her best one yet!

The Truth About Fame is highly recommended for readers of inspirational fiction. I can’t wait to read Octavia’s story in The Price of Dreams, which releases in August 2020.

“Maybe, just maybe, my future could be different. I could trust in a God who gave second chances. I could fall in love and trust this man with my innermost secrets and desires.”

The faith element rating for this book is a 3 (strong faith content).

*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.

BackCover Blurb:
My life has always been in the spotlight. Born to two famous parents and then quickly rising to "super" status in the modeling world ensured that I, Astoria "Tori" Bell, would always have my image plastered across newsstands. Unfortunately, adoring fans weren't always magnanimous and now I have a stalker on my hands.

Oddly enough, the tall, dark, and all-too handsome bodyguard hired to protect me seems more harmful than the threatening notes from the stalker. As well as his plan to flush out the danger by proposing a fake engagement.

The lines between pretend and reality blur and I have to shore up my resolves. Baggage from my past means I can't let myself be vulnerable. But the way Marcel Fox treats me has me thinking otherwise.

With a new rock on my finger and the man who put it there by my side, happily ever after seems like a possibility or is that as fake as my public persona?

The Truth About Fame is the second book in the Christian Chick Lit series: Faith and Fortune.
