The Red Door Inn (Prince Edward Island Dreams #1) by Liz Johnson {Contemporary Romance Review}

Prince Edward Island Dreams #1
Contemporary Romance

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 Thoughts

The Red Door Inn is my first Liz Johnson novel, but I am sure it will not be my last. I was drawn to the book because the setting is Prince Edward Island . . . remember Anne of Green Gables? I thought it would be a nice soothing and uplifting story just like its predecessor. It was, but the story line wasn't the same at all.

Marie Carrington is scared and running from something. Her plan of getting to Prince Edward Island and disappearing is unraveling. Just when all seems lost an angel appears in the form of Jack Sloane. Jack not only makes a way for Marie to get to PEI, but also offers her a job and shelter once she's there.

The only problem seems to be Jack's nephew Seth. He's very skeptical of Marie and isn't shy about making his feelings known.The two are like oil and water but both adore Jack and try to find a middle ground to keep from hurting Jack.

As the story unfolds we learn more about why Jack is opening the inn and why Marie is running. The story has a gentle feel yet it contains serious subjects. I enjoyed reading about how Jack's faith carried him through some impossible situations and how that faith is spilling over onto Marie and Seth.

This book left me once again wanting to make a trip to PEI. I look forward to the next book and the continuing story of these engaging characters.
