About the Book
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.
This was my first read by Liz Johnson. I enjoyed the descriptive way she writes. Throughout the book I could not only imagine the scenes vividly, it was like I was living them. I could smell things, hear things and see things all around me. It started right on the very first page of the book when she was describing the cinnamon rolls that Caden was making. After the end of the second and third paragraphs, I wanted to go make some of my own! I love it when an author pulls you in like that because you feel as if you are a part of the story and it connects you on a higher level.
I thought this was an interesting storyline. Of course, my love for baking and cooking like Caden may play a part in that, but I thought it was a great read. What I enjoyed the most was the subtle way their relationship blossomed. Sometimes you read a love story and the characters are just too predictable, and the story seems forced. This was not that at all. It progressed at the right pace for me and I enjoyed every moment. Watch out for some twists to come though – they may change your perspective of the characters a little, but overall I think you’ll love it.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher. I was not required to write a favorable review. All thoughts and opinions are 100% my own.
