The Red Door Inn Book Review

Prince Edward Island Dreams Series
Book One

SUMMARY:  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 fiancee 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.

REVIEW:  Liz Johnson has done an excellent job!  The characters were engaging and the storyline had me turning pages, anxious to read what would happen next.  The three main characters have all come to PEI looking for a fresh start.  Marie is running away, trying to escape an opportunist father who wants to use a horrible situation that happened to Marie to further his real estate empire.  Seth moved to PEI to get away from a disastrous relationship that found him without his company, his money, his good reputation, and his fiancee.  Jack wants to honor his late wife's desire to open a bed and breakfast on Prince Edwards Island but is it really what HE wants to do? 
     I love how everyone seems to be keeping secrets and how, little by little, they learn to trust each other and find they can depend on each other.  There are some major hurtles and preconceptions that each one must overcome before they realize they have become a family.  This little inn and the surrounding village sounds like a place I would really love to visit.  This book was refreshing.  I look forward to reading the rest of this series when they are released and other novels by this author.
     If you are looking for a story about hope and redemption, check this book out.  It will be worth the time.
