About the Book:
It seems like a dream come true . . . until it forces her to question everything.

Brielle Adebayo is fully content teaching at a New York City public school and taking annual summer vacations with her mother to Martha's Vineyard. But everything changes when her mom drops a bombshell--Brielle is really a princess in the island kingdom of Ọlọrọ Ilé, off the coast of Africa, and she must immediately assume her royal position, since the health of her grandfather, the king, is failing.

Distraught by all the secrets her mother kept, Brielle is further left spinning when the Ọlọrọ Ilé Royal Council brings up an old edict that states she must marry before her coronation, or the crown will pass to another. Brielle is uncertain if she even wants the throne, and with her world totally shaken, where will she find the courage to take a chance on love and brave the perils a wrong decision may bring?
My Thoughts:
Review from Bookstagram Tour:

This book! Goodness. From the start this story it had me hooked.

Most girls I know have dreamed of finding out that they are a long lost princess, but for Bri, it wasn’t a dream. Her whole world is turned upside down as everything she knew was not true. The range of emotions she went through was strong and real. You felt them with her as Toni wrote about Bri’s journey. The depth that Toni writes is simply stunning! Her characters are just real. You feel for Brielle and you just want to hug Iris, her best friend. Who I thought was fantastic as they maneuvered through this new territory together.
Brielle’s world is thrown upside down, but her faith in the Lord is strong. She turns to Him for guidance and her faith is comforting to read. Her world isn’t perfect, but she puts all her trust in the One who is.

This is the first book I’ve read from Toni Shiloh, but not my last. She has such an amazing talent for storytelling. Her character leap from the pages and you are right there with them. With my commute, I live off of audiobooks, and the narrator for this story really made this story pop. I had a hard time stepping away, but when I did, I was able to jump right back in.
This book is everything you want in a story, right down to the most gorgeous cover.

I honestly can’t wait to read more books from Toni, this is one of my top books for the year.
