About the Book
Book: Finding Love
Author: Toni Shiloh
Release date: June 28, 2017
Delaney Jones has finally started to pick up the pieces of her shattered life after the death of her husband, Parker. Just as life enters a new normal, in walks Army soldier, Luke Robinson. Just when she makes the decision to trust him, life deals her a heavy blow.
Sergeant First Class Luke Robinson can’t get over his part in the death of Delaney’s husband. In hopes to assuage his guilt, he offers to lend a hand. Only, he never counted on the feelings she evokes with just a smile. Will his secrets widen the gulf or will he finally find absolution?
I was so glad to be back in Maple Run to see Delaney’s story. First, I have to tell you that if you are hungry, probably not a good idea to read this unless you have a snack. The book describes some great food that made my mouth water! And who knew you could use maple syrup with so many things?! I’m thinking maybe there should be a Maple Run cookbook (hint, hint Toni!).
In reality, each story that I read from Toni’s is better than the last. Her descriptions, emotions, plot line, and attention to detail are wonderful. She is not afraid to show vulnerability in her characters, and I could see that at times in Delaney. I like to see that in my characters because it makes them feel more human to me which enables me to connect with them. Delaney had a lot to work through in this book, and I thought Ms. Shiloh captured it perfectly.
My favorite characters was Luke, but not for the reason you think. Yes, he was totally swoon worthy in my mind being a man of uniform and all, but there was so much more to him than that. He had a heart of gold. The way he tried to make amends for his “wrong doing” (by the way I say that loosely because it was really guilt that he should have given to God) was heartwarming to me. His willingness to help others is a quality I can’t help but fall for. He had a lot of emotions to work through in this book as well, and once again Ms. Shiloh does not disappoint.
This is such a charming and endearing story. I hope you decide to give it a try, even if you haven’t read the first book in the series! I received a complimentary copy of this book. I was not required to write a favorable review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

Guest post from Toni Shiloh
I’m so excited about this book tour for Finding Love. This book holds a special place in my heart. The pathway to writing Finding Love was not as easy as I thought it would be. For the most part, my brain has an idea or characters share their story, and bam, I’m off and writing at my laptop.
I decided to write Finding Love when I got the contract for Buying Love, the first book in the series. I figured fans would want to read another story in the fictional Maple Run, Virginia. I also figured that Shorty and Nikki’s story would be the second book, but alas, they refuse to talk to me.
The reason I love Finding Love so much is because it’s about what every person is searching for: love. We search for it in families, in friends, and in that romantic ideal of happily ever after. And even greater, it’s a testament of God’s love for us.
Sometimes, love is scary. To let another person in our heart, bare our secrets, and hold our breath waiting for them to accept us…makes a person’s heart quake. With Delaney, she wasn’t even trying to find love, but it rode in on Harley seeking for forgiveness. I loved watching Luke and Delaney fall in love and I pray you do as well.
Blessings, reader friends!
