about the book

Deck the Shelves by Toni Shiloh (Heartfalls book 1)

Deck the Shelves by Toni Shiloh

Kendall Jackson is the proud owner of Heartfalls’ bookstore, The Cozy Shelf.

Her life is one straight out of the pages, except she’s missing that leading man. Although she has a crush on the handsome auto mechanic, Quinton Hendricks, Kendall wants an old-fashioned type of romance—the stuff swoon-worthy romance books are made of.

But Quinton seems to need a little prodding.

Something about Kendall sparks hope in Quinton Hendricks that love could be his again. Only being abandoned by his ex-wife has made him cautious to the point of non-moving.

Can two people hesitant on second chances find love as they Deck the Shelves?

my thoughts

Twas a week before Christmas and I wanted to share a delightful little story with my favorite reader friends! Deck the Shelves by Toni Shiloh is bookish and sweet. Set in a small town named Heartfalls, it’s a literary treat!

Deck the Shelves by Toni Shiloh quote graphic credit Faithfully BookishI’m not a huge fan of Christmas stories but I am a big fan of this one! While I personally prefer to keep the celebration of this sacred holiday simple and quiet, I can definitely appreciate the joy and enthusiasm people (and fictional characters) like Kendall Jackson possess!

Quinton reminds me so much of my real-life hero, quiet, hard-working, a wonderful daddy, and swoony! The family dynamics within his multi-generational household warmed my heart (I’m not volunteering for that living plan but it’s so sweet to read about how others might make it work).

I highly recommend this novella! It has heart and depth and humor and it’s perfect for the busy Advent season or any time of year!

I borrowed this book through the Kindle Unlimited program and was under no obligation to post a review. The opinions expressed are my own.
