At the beginning of this month, I had the pleasure of reading Where Two Hearts Meet by Liz Johnson. This story…was absolutely captivating!
Here’s the blurb:
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.
My personal review:
From the first page I was launched onto the beautiful shores of Prince Edward Island, my imagination exploring the gorgeous sands and hearing the rhythmic lapping of water. The author paints such vivid scenes that by the end of the story I’ve felt like I went on vacation. 🙂
The main characters, though flawed, were extremely likable. Caden’s personality wasn’t flashy, wasn’t glamorous, and that’s why I adored her. She was down-to-earth and just plain cute. The kind of gal you’d have as a bestie in high school and keep close with for decades. In short, I loved her. Adam’s quick-wittedness and charm was evident from the first encounter, but so was his vulnerability and imperfections. Though I loved Adam’s growth throughout the novel, it was Caden who I’d found myself rooting for. I wanted her to succeed not only in her career as a chef, but as a person whose insecurities had held her back.
The romance was wonderfully crafted. Though the attraction was always present, the relationship between the characters gradually blossomed. It was fun to read. Very believable and intriguing. I found myself turning pages well into the night hours. What I loved the most was how the author subtly fused the message of grace into the story. It was spiritually refreshing and beautiful.
In conclusion, I’d recommend this book for anyone who enjoys contemporary inspirational romances. If you’d be interested in purchasing this fabulous story click here:
