The Red Door Inn by Liz Johnson

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 really got me involved in Marie’s story from the very beginning. The story begins with Marie, out of money, wondering what she’s going to do with her life and how she is going to escape from her past. I wasn’t quite sure what she was running from but I felt an instant connection to her desire to get away from her past and start over again.

After agreeing to help restore an old bed and breakfast, she meets Seth and the meeting almost sends her running in the opposite direction. Seth is running from his own past and the two don’t exactly start off on the right foot. You can see the chemistry between them from the very beginning and I was hoping they could both get over their past and turn that chemistry into something that lasts.

This is my first book by Liz Johnson but it received high ratings from Max Lucado so I couldn’t wait to read it. I love the setting of Prince Edward Island and the small town characters were easy for me to like. If you enjoy contemporary romances, you’ll definitely want to read The Red Door Inn and find out more about Marie and Seth.

  1. This sounds like a book right up my alley! While I love adventure and thriller books it’s nice to curl up with a “cozy” every now and again. Truth be told I would love to move to an island somewhere and fix up a house or bed and breakfast like the character in this book did. Just another to-do on my long list 🙂 Great review!

  2. Love Max Lucado. I nabbed a freebie Kindle ebook of his sample books this morning (Life to the Max – A Max Lucado Digital Sampler ). It has 76 pages of book samples offered today for free to try before you buy.
