I didn't even remember wanting to read this book when it showed up in my mailbox. Doesn't the cover look interesting? I thought maybe that was the reason I chose The Red Door Inn: A Novel (Prince Edward Island Dreams) by Liz Johnson. Of course, briefly looking at the description, I was instantly taken with the book.
Marie Carrington is running from a host of bad memories. Broke and
desperate, she's hoping to find safety and sanctuary on Prince Edward
Island, where she reluctantly agrees to help decorate a renovated
bed-and-breakfast before it opens for prime tourist season. Seth
Sloane didn't move three thousand miles to work on his uncle's B&B
so he could babysit a woman with a taste for expensive antiques and a
bewildering habit of jumping every time he brushes past her. He came to
help restore the old Victorian--and to forget about the fiancée who
broke his heart. The only thing Marie and Seth agree on is that
getting the Red Door Inn ready to open in just three months will take
everything they've got. Can these two wounded souls find hope, healing,
and perhaps a bit of romance on this beautiful island?
the Red Door Inn, a lovely home away from home tucked along the north
shore of fabled Prince Edward Island. It's a place where the wounded
come to heal, the broken find forgiveness, and the lonely find a family.
Won't you stay for the season?
I couldn't put this book down and read it very quickly. The writing and the characters draw you in immediately and make you feel like you are part of their world. Although I have never been to this quaint Canandian town, I feel like I have after reading this book. Marie is trying to get over hurt in the past and Jack finds her on his way back to the island. Realizing that she has no where else to go, Jack takes her home to help decorate the new B&B that he just purchased so that it can have a women's touch. With that start, I know that if you pick it up, you won't put it down. I can't wait for the next in the series!! I hope that you check out this wonderful book and enjoy all the magic of Prince Edward Island as much as I did.
