"The Red Door Inn," by Liz Johnson

"The Red Door Inn," by Liz Johnson

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.

When I started this book, I wasn't 100% sure about it, but the more I got into the book, the more I loved it.  I have never been to Prince Edward Island, but after reading this book, it's on my "to visit" list. 

Marie's character started out very wishy-washy to my mind, but the more you got into the book, the more you saw her reveal her inner strength and resilience.  I loved the character "Aretha Franklin. No relation to the singer."  She was a real fire cracker and such a good friend to everyone.  As was Caden; in fact all the characters were well thought out and made sense to the story.

This is the first book in the Prince Edward Island Dreams series, and looking at the preview of the second book, that one looks good as well.

Stars out of 5 : 4.5, I felt the start of the book was a little weak, but it picked up after the first couple of chapters.  I liked strong Marie a lot better than weak Marie.  Well worth the read though.
