Still reeling from the death of his wife, Guy Pierre returns to Freedom Lake to take over as town sheriff and raise his twin daughters. Alone. Yet, life keeps throwing Michelle in his path and sparks of interest began to rise.

About the Book
Series: Freedom Lake, #2
Genre: Adult, Christian, Contemporary, Romance
Publication date: March 20, 2018
This is another beautiful story from Toni Shiloh. She masterfully crafts contemporary Christian romances for us.
Michelle and Guy have a past. And then they moved on, without closure, without apologies or forgiveness. Now they are back in the same town again.
Michelle is a lawyer–determined to bring as many people to justice for drunk driving as she possibly can. She doesn’t think there is any room in her life for a man.
Guy lost his beloved wife. He’s a single dad of young twin girls. Life is not so easy.
These characters had a way of catching my attention. I wanted to know how they were going to handle the challenges of their lives, how their romance was going to happen. How God was going to reveal Himself strong and real in each of their lives. Many valuable truths about life lessons are portrayed in this story, including grace and forgiveness. And most of all, God’s love.
If you like contemporary Christian romance stories, I think you’ll like this one!

1. How did you decide that you wanted to write Christian romance? What inspired this?
When I rededicated my life to Christ, I wanted to be used by Him. It wasn’t until I went back to school to get my Bachelor’s degree in English that the writing bug really called to me. Not that it hadn’t before, but that it could actually be a way to reach people. I went to my local library to see if they had any books like this. I had never heard of Christian fiction so once I found the section, I began devouring the books and the lessons found between the pages.
2. How often do you hear from your reader fans? Do you have any funny and/or awkward stories?
I hear from readers maybe once a month. Usually it’s because they’re sharing a review with me or they just want to share how the story touched their hearts.
3. What inspired the idea for Grace Restored?
When I wrote book one, I knew the characters for each series. It wasn’t until I was midway through book one, Returning Home, that I realized how much of a story Guy and Michelle had. As soon as I finished the first draft of RH, I dove into Grace Restored with anticipation. They did not disappointment me.
4. What do you want readers to take away from reading Grace Restored?
That no matter what skeletons you shoved in your closet, God’s grace is enough to restore You to the kingdom, to peace of mind, to faith.
5. What is your current WIP? What can you tell us about it?
Currently I’m working on finishing the fourth and final book in the Maple Run series. This book features Shorty and Nikki with characters from the first three books making an appearance. These two have really struggled to share their thoughts with me from the moment I tried to make them book 2, lol. Thankfully, they’re opening up but it’s still a struggle.
