Evocative Contemporary Romance Set in a Charming Inn on Beautiful Prince Edward Island
In her kitchen at the 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.
Readers will discover hope for the hurting, joy for the broken, and romance for the lonely at the enchanting Red Door Inn.
You can feel the Island breeze.
I spotted this book at my local library. I picked it up, looked it over and then set it back down. I didn’t have time to read a book. While I waited for my kids to finish making their selections I found myself back where I started, staring at this book. I checked it out and took it home. I could not put it down. The descriptions of the island drew me in and the love story that was taking place kept me going. I finished the book in two days. I was so sad when it was finished, but then I remembered it was a part of a series. I can’t wait to start Book 3.
"Where Two Hearts Meet" is Book Two in the Prince Edward Island Dreams series by Liz Johnson. I loved "The Red Door Inn" and couldn't wait to read this book...it doesn't disappoint either! It is filled with such heart and isn't just another love story. It shows us the heart of Prince Edward Island, as well as beautiful scenery descriptions.
A quote from our hero, Adam Jacobs really encompasses this novel and small town living on Prince Edward Island. "There was a gentleness to it. A peacefulness about it. Here it wasn't forgetting. It was more about enjoying every moment. But, in order to do that, he couldn't think about the past, which had become the only thing he did really well." He is ready to let go and move into healing, but how?
I love how our heroine, Caden Holt blossoms in this story and romance. Initially, she is a behind the scenes chef at The Red Door Inn. She is lacking in self-confidence about her looks, her skills, and her worth. She is beautiful, but has a hard time seeing herself that way. Adam Jacobs struggles with survivor's guilt and goes to PEI to get away and hopes to write again. They both struggle with trusting God in different areas of of their lives. Grace is woven through this novel..."Grace isn't about being good enough or strong enough. It's just about acknowledging your need for it and accepting it." I love how they both grow spiritually throughout the book. Sweet, heartfelt, and those almost kissing scenes were swoon worthy.
The imagery had me stopping to research the island...now I want to live there. High praise for Where Two Hearts Meet. Liz Johnson is one of my newest favorite authors. I feel privileged to be on her book launch team. My favorite quote, I'll end this review with, "keep trying. That's the mark of a true hero." Truly inspiring novel...enjoy!
