From the Back Cover
"The Red Door Inn took my breath away! Highly recommended!"--Colleen Coble, author of The Inn at Ocean's Edge and the Hope Beach series
Marie Carrington is broke, desperate, and hoping to find sanctuary on Prince Edward Island while decorating a renovated bed-and-breakfast. Seth Sloane moved three thousand miles to help restore his uncle's Victorian B and B--and to forget about the fiancée who broke his heart. He wasn't expecting to have to babysit a woman with a taste for expensive antiques and a bewildering habit of jumping every time he brushes past her.
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--and they have to find a way to work together. In the process, they may find something infinitely sweeter than they ever imagined on this island of dreams.
"Liz Johnson is a rock-solid writer. Any book by my friend Liz will be creative, well researched, and intriguing."--Max Lucado, New York Times bestselling author and pastor
"Liz Johnson crafts a story about new beginnings and fresh hope. I thoroughly enjoyed this first novel in her new series and the vicarious visit it offered me to the Canadian Maritime Province of Prince Edward Island. I could almost feel the sea breeze!"--Becky Wade, author of the Porter Family series
Liz Johnson fell in love with Prince Edward Island the first time she set foot on it. When she's not plotting her next trip to the island, she works as director of marketing for a Christian radio network. She is the author of several novels including Where Two Hearts Meet, a New York Times bestselling novella, and a handful of short stories. She makes her home in Tucson, Arizona.

A light read, with a predictable ending (and no twists). I was entranced by the location of Prince Edward Island, one of the Maritimes of Eastern Canada. It also made me want to read L.M. Montgomery and about a certain red-haired orphan (Anne of Green Gables), a series which I’ve never read.
It's the first I've read of this author. Enjoyed her prolific use of metaphors, although she went a bit wild at times, but was distracted by dangling prepositions. Also distracted by her need to explain for the reader the humor as she went. [e.g., talking about tables and cinnamon rolls “ ‘…I’m just saying. I’m not going to share.’ He winked at her. Great. Now he was teasing her.” … or explaining that a remark was sarcasm. Give the reader some credit!] Repetitive remarks about long eyelashes ... okay already! An underlying Christian theme tied in well with the development of the characters as they faced brokenness, desperation, healing and hope. That was uplifting, read this at new year’s.
Book 2 in the series will continue with the same characters, of course on PEI.
3.5-4 stars. I enjoyed the readability of this book and the characters who were far from perfect. Loved reading descriptions of Prince Edward Island. Tags: Romance, Women's fiction, Christian values
Marie Carrington is one of the most fragile heroines I've seen lately, yet she has a subtle tungsten steel thread of strength, in her faith. God is drawing her back to Him after she's betrayed both by her father and by an old school mate. Ms. Johnson does a great job of drawing you into the story by revealing only just enough to hook you and propel you forward in reading.
Seth Sloane starts out as a jerk. But, again, Ms. Johnson infuses enough information about Seth that the reader quickly understands why he's acting so wounded -- because he is. But his reaction to that utter betrayal is to throw walls up. As the story goes on, both Seth and Marie seek to overcome their animosity toward each other and a true friendship and caring grows.
Bibliotherapy: I was a psychologist for twenty-five years. Marie's reaction is pretty extreme, but given the rape and then her father's betrayal, and everything else Liz Johnson has set up, her flight to Prince Edward Island is understandable. As is Seth's. These two are shown God's mercy via a widower, Jack, who is setting up a bed and breakfast to fulfill his wife's wishes before she died. This story would be a good bibliotherapy tool for: emotional abandonment, betrayal, rape, and manipulative relationships.
Marie is running away from an unfeeling father who will not protect her against a client's son who takes advantage of her trusting and sweet soul. Seth has also been used by a scheming woman who stripped him of everything and left. When a kind elderly man brings them together to help renovate an old bed and breakfast inn on Prince Edward Island, both are very suspicious of each other. Marie loved the "Anne" books from this island and is determined to find some happiness here. The characters are real as the scenes come alive with each unfolding conversation and caring act. The inn's financial pressures burden them as they push to finish the renovations. Despite the hardships Marie begins to feel that she may have found a father figure who she can trust and a man who cares about her soul. But can he trust her? Can the inn bring them together and not push them away from each other?
Liz Johnson handles the sensitive topics gracefully and tactfully. She champions meaningful friendships with real love and writes them I such a beautiful and magical way that you can only smile and sigh in a satisfying manner when you are through. Open a gift for yourself and read this lovely and uplifting book.
