Fiction Book Review: Where Two Hearts Meet by Liz Johnson

Book: Description:
In her kitchen at Rose's Red Door Inn, executive chef Caden Holt is calm, collected, and competent. But when her boss asks her to show off their beautiful island to impress a visiting travel writer and save the inn, Caden is forced to face a world much bigger than her kitchen--and a man who makes her wish she was beautiful.

Journalist Adam Jacobs is on a forced sabbatical on Prince Edward Island. He's also on assignment to uncover a story. Instead he's falling in love with the island's red shores and Caden's sweets.

When Caden discovers Adam isn't who she thought he was, she realizes that the article he's writing could do more than ruin the inn's chances for survival--it might also break her heart.

My Review:
I absolutely loved When Two Hearts Meet. Once I started reading I had a hard time putting it down. There were parts I found myself smiling through, not just smiling but grinning, and others I wanted to cry. This is the second book in the Prince Edward Island Dream series, and I liked it even better than the first. I related so well to Caden Holt's sweet, insecure character. She's someone I'd choose for a friend. And Adam Jacob's story broke my heart. Visiting the island through these characters made me want to go there in person. The other characters who inhabit the island or just popped in for a visit add a great interest to the story. And this isn't just a sweet read, it's a story about courage, love, and honor with a great element of trust. For me, this is the perfect book to curl up with and get lost in. The Red Door Inn is a lovely place to visit and I look forward to book three in the summer of 2017. I received this book for free from Revell Publishing.

Fiction Book Review: The Red Door Inn by Liz Johnson

Book Description:
Marie Carrington is broke, desperate, and hoping to find sanctuary on Prince Edward Island while decorating a renovated bed-and-breakfast. Seth Sloane moved three thousand miles to help restore his uncle's Victorian B and B--and to forget about the fiancée who broke his heart. He wasn't expecting to have to babysit a woman with a taste for expensive antiques and a bewildering habit of jumping every time he brushes past her.

The only thing Marie and Seth agree on is that getting the Red Door Inn ready to open in just two months will take everything they've got--and they have to find a way to work together. In the process, they may find something infinitely sweeter than they ever imagined on this island of dreams.

My Review:
I totally enjoyed The Red Door Inn. Liz Johnson's description of Prince Edward Island drew me in as soon as Marie stepped off the ferry. I loved the references to Anne of Green Gables. Liz did a super job weaving some of Anne's characteristics into Marie. Going through the ups and downs of restoring the inn from a dilapidated building to a beautiful place for the hurting, the lonely, and the loved was a delight. I enjoyed the characters and their stories. Along with Marie and Seth, you'll meet Jack, a dear man missing his wife and seeking to fulfill a promise. By the time I finished this beautiful story filled with faith and hope, I wanted to book a night at the inn. If you're looking for a pleasant read with a compelling story, check out The Red Door Inn. This is the first in a series. I can't wait for book 2.

I received this book in exchange for a fair review.
