Book Review: "The Red Door Inn" by Liz Johnson


Marie Carrington doesn't have enough money to buy a ticket to Prince Edward Island or lunch, for that matter. When Jack Sloane offers to buy her a ticket so she can help him decorate the B & B he's renovating, she reluctantly agrees. She needs somewhere safe to heal and the picturesque island seems like the perfect place to do it. Seth Sloane moved across the country to help his uncle renovate the B & B and escape the heartache from his fiance leaving. Seth suspects Marie as having some sort of plan to hurt his uncle and Marie can't stop the panic attacks and jumpiness whenever someone gets too close. 

"The Red Door Inn" is the first book in the "Prince Edward Island Dreams" series. I had this book sitting on my table waiting to be read for more than a week. I had so many things to do to get ready for Easter and my daughter's birthday, I couldn't find time to read. It turned out to be a good thing I didn't start it sooner as once I started, I didn't want to put it down! I started it one evening and finished it the next afternoon. I found the book to have the right pace and it flowed nicely. It revealed the details of Seth and Marie's past at the right speed to not make me frustrated or give away too much too soon. It was nice to watch the characters' growth through the book and how they overcame their pasts to be able to move forward with their lives. I am looking forward to reading the 2nd book in the series when it comes out this fall.
