You can never escape your past and sometimes you shouldn’t try!

Natalie O’Ryan left home years ago with plans never to return. So, imagine her surprise when her fiancée suggest that they hold their wedding in her hometown in PEI rather than in Nashville.  Natalie feels that he is trying to do it for her benefit, so she agrees, mainly because she doesn’t want to argue about it.  Soon after returning home, people can’t believe she is back.  None more so than her childhood best friend Justin Kane.  Natalie and Justin had a pact that they would always leave the island together.  The night they were to leave was right after Justin’s father died and he had to stay behind to help his mom with his siblings.  Both feel betrayed by the other, Justin because Natalie left and Natalie because Justin never came after her.  But when her fiancée has to go back to Nashville unexpectedly and leaves Justin to help Natalie finish planning out the wedding, will they be able to reconcile their differences?

Another story that could only happen at the Red Door Inn. Throughout the book, I had a really good idea of what the final outcome was going to be, but just not sure how it was going to get there.  Johnson included a few twists to keep the reader moving through the pages and caused a few surprises along the way.  The story centered on personal growth for both Natalie and Justin.  Both had to learn to find how to forgive and when they did, they were able to find grace along the way as well.  More than just a love story, this book really put people in difficult situations and had plenty of conflict.  I couldn’t help feel bad for Justin throughout much of the book.  And then when you learn the truth about Natalie, it really makes her back story that much more real.

If you have loved the series this far, you will not be disappointed. If you haven’t started, get to it!
