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.
What I Loved: It’s hard to pinpoint exactly why I enjoyed this book so much. The characters were lovable and I even laughed out loud a few times. The tension and chemistry between Seth and Marie was great. But there was something simplistic about it too that just flat out worked. It’s like Johnson didn’t have to try too hard. Her writing, her characters, her setting were smooth and flawless. But I think one of the reasons The Red Door Inn was such a hit for me was because Liz created a heroine that I really cared about. Marie had a strength about her yet she was so vulnerable. From the moment you met her, you knew that she needed someone sturdy in her life.
Rating and Recommendation: I’m gladly giving The Red Door Inn 5 stars and I look forward to reading more from Miss Johnson. I recommend this one to anyone who enjoys a cozy Christian Fiction novel.
