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 two 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?

Step into the Red Door Inn, a lovely home away from home tucked along the north shore of fabled Prince Edward Island. It's a place where the wounded come to heal, the broken find forgiveness, and the lonely find a family. Won't you stay for the season?

My Review

The Red Door Inn sat on the shelf with the rest of my TBR books for months. Not because I didn't want to read it, but because I'd made several commitments to read other books that I didn't have a chance to delve into it. Once I finally cracked open the front cover, I finished the book within a day. 

The characters are so real, that you just connect with them deeply. I've never been to Prince Edward Island, but thanks to Liz Johnson's beautiful description, I feel like I have. 

This was the first book I've read by this author, but she instantly jumped on to my list of favorite authors. 

The Red Door Inn combined spiritual truths, romance, and unforgettable characters. I've always told my husband that one day when we buy our own home, I want a red front door. Now, when that happens, I think this story will creep into my thoughts each time I unlock the door. It's one of those books that have a special kind of staying power that resonates with you. 

I highly recommend this book. 5+ stars, easily. I was given a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts are my own.

    I listened to it on audiobook while I was gardening last summer. It was very enjoyable!
