Leave it to Toni to wrap your heart with love and real life lessons.
A wonderful story of moving forward and trusting God with the outcome of life and with a Christmas theme to make it all the more enjoyable.
The story around Starr and Waylon will keep you glued to this book and bring to mind the precious gift of Christmas.

I received a copy of this book and this is my honest opinion.

Cute, but cheesy and needed proofing.

I liked the hero and heroine, but I hated how proud the hero was of his “smooth talking.” I don't trust smooth-talking guys; they're so fake and/or working toward an ulterior motive.

I liked most of the family dynamics, except for the sister. She was unbelievably one-dimensional, completely awful until right at the end. I liked that all the siblings were named after Christmas words, but I don't think Noel is a man's name—at least, if it's pronounced Noelle lik

I'll Be Home is a sweet, clean read. I enjoyed the story line and look forward to reading more books by this author.

Good book

I love the book. Starr and Waylon was an adorable couple. Angel and Alton did Starr so wrong. I love the ending. I can't wait to read the next book in the Lewis Family series.

Being the baby of the family, Starr hides her true feelings and desires as she tries to live up to her families expectations or at least what she thinks is expected.
The unexpected romance between Starr and Waylon was fun!❤ His cheesy lines had me grinning and groaning.
I loved the faith and forgiveness also the struggles with forgiveness.
I look forward to reading more Lewis Family stories!

A sweet Christmas novella. My first read by this author. Very enjoyable!

Quick book look ...

This is Toni Shiloh's first book in the Lewis family series. I really liked the fact that she started out by telling the story of the baby of the family first. Recently unemployed, Starr does not want to return home a failure. The fact that her sister is about to marry her ex-boyfriend does not help. But then her brother brings his best friend, Waylon, home for dinner. (Maybe being back in town might be alright after all.) First Starr has to survive the wedding. Then she has t

Sweet Christian romance

This was a sweet Christian and Christmas romance that I enjoyed. I liked getting to see a culture other than my own. I would rate it PG for kissing.

Clean, wholesome and inspirational story. Starr is a great character, the situation with her sister is....a shock factor. The Lewis family seems huge and I did get lost in the crowd a little bit in the beginning but that didn't last long. Waylon's instant attraction to her broke through a lot of barriers for Starr. He listened to her, supported her decisions whatever they were and made her think, which lead them both to remember to pray about all their pondering life and career decisions. Very e ...more

A good, fluffy, Christmas read.

I really liked this story. A cute brother's best friend romance. Starr and Waylon have a spark of attraction after not seeing each other for a few years. Waylon sees that his best friend's little sister isn't so little anymore and he's quite interested in her. Luckily she's interested in him too and they have the blessing from the rest of her family. These two are so cute. I loved their romance and the openness of it. Starr shares her "secrets" with Waylon early on

Beautiful, heartwarming, “I’ll Be Home” met all those happy Christmas romance feels. I loved the sense of family, healing, coming home, and finding your happily ever after. Shiloh always draws our hearts to the true meaning of Christmas, faith, and family, and the romance of it all.

I received this book in a giveaway by the author. I’m sharing my honest opinion. It was heartwarming and inspirational, just what I needed!

A sweet story

Some of the characters could have used more depth, but this was a very sweet story. I would have loved to see the villain in the story confronted with his actions.

Christmas Love

What a beautiful Christmas Love story, I believe Starr came home at the right time it made her realize her true passion is writing. I knew Ashton was off the Starr stated that her was marrying him. Waylon is perfectly made for Starr everything happened in God's timing. Ms.Toni I love your books can't wait to read the next one.

Super cute and fun Christmas story!!! It was light enough to be easily read in a short amount of time but deep enough to cause me to examine my own faith. I really enjoy this writers authenticity she brings to the table. I highly recommend this book to fans of contemporary romance.

Cute book and great Christmas read.
Continued from last year's collection contribution, "I'll be Home" we get to spend more time with the Lewis family. You won't be lost if you didn't read the first one, but it does make this one more fun. This year, Angel's matured a lot, and her relationship with God is growing every day. Her desire for her family to recognize that is very real, raw, and relatable!!

I received an advance copy, and chose to review it here. All thoughts are my own.
