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?
"Shiloh brings all the feels to In Search of a Prince. This romance with a touch of mystery will stay with you long after The End."--New York Times bestselling author RACHEL HAUCK
"Beautifully weaving together fairy tale and reality, In Search of a Prince gives us the modern princess we've been waiting for. I enjoyed every moment."--BETHANY TURNER, award-winning author of Plot Twist
“God will see you through. He’s bought you so far, Bri. If you look back at where you were and your journey to now, you’d know it. You’d see His handiwork.”
This quote from In Search of a Prince sums up so much of the heart of this story by Toni Shiloh. It is beautifully written and wonderfully told. From the gorgeous cover to the last page, is has more gems than the princess’s tiara. The characters are so real and most of them are delightful to spend time with. Shiloh’s writing makes it obvious that she spent much time in researching her story’s location and culture, but her research is seamlessly incorporated into her story. The characters have a strong relationship with God and their prayers are an integral part of the book.
I highly recommend this book for readers of contemporary Christian fiction especially those who enjoy a little fairy tale aspect to their reads. I congratulate Toni Shiloh on her first Bethany House publication. It is a winner!
I was given a copy of this book by the publisher. All opinions stated are my own.
Princess Diaries plus faith!
This book was so good! I was completely enveloped in this story from start to finish! Brielle, along with her friends and family, pulled me in and kept me flipping pages in an effort to find out what would happen next and how everything would turn out!
The setting was amazing and I really felt like I was taking a trip to a tropical paradise with the characters. I fell in love with Bri’s grandfather, the king, right alongside our heroine and one aspect I really loved was the close friendship between Brielle and Iris and their shared faith that made it so much stronger.
Reminiscent of Princess Diaries, this book was a blast! I really came to care for the characters and could almost feel the things they were going through myself, as I read. Author Toni Shiloh did an awesome job of making this story and its characters relatable on so many levels and I am astounded!
I really enjoyed this novel and am very happy to have gotten to read In Search of a Prince as my debut into this author’s work!
