Sometimes love happens when you least expect it with someone you would expect!
Caden Holt has been the executive chef at the Red Door Inn on Prince Edward Island since it opened. She loves her work and also that she has time to teach cooking classes to youth in her town. But all that may come to a screeching halt when she learns that the Inn is in financial trouble. Her boss (and best friend) Marie has just received a letter that they will be receiving a mystery guest at the inn who is a journalist for a bed and breakfast magazine that will review their stay and possibly put their inn on the cover of the magazine. Now Caden just has to figure out how to keep the mystery guest extremely happy throughout his or her stay.
Adam Jacobs is going on a forced sabbatical after his writing assignment in the Middle East resulted in the death of a young marine. Racked with guilt, his editor sends him to Prince Edward Island to rest at the Red Door Inn. But this is not what Adam had in mind. He is used to the hustle and bustle of Washington DC and doesn’t know if he will be able to actually rest, much less overcome his writer’s block. He eventually begins researching and begins to find connections between the church in Boston that hosted the young marine’s funeral and the owner of the Red Door Inn. What if his editor sent him here for a reason? Possibly to blow open a big story that no one knows about?
This was a really quick and fun romance read. It is the second in a series, but easily stands alone on its own. The two main characters are flawed, but easily compensate each other. Not to mention how insufferable one of the supporting characters was. Johnson did a really good job of setting scenery around the island to really bring the reader to the setting. There wasn’t much focus on the inn itself, but it is possible that it was created in the first book. Now I’m going to have to go read that one.
Overall, I really enjoyed the story. I’m looking forward to more tales from the Red Door Inn. If you enjoy clean romance novels that have some fun sprinkled in, then this one is for you!
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher. The views and opinions expressed within are my own.
