Where Two Hearts Meet by Liz Johnson
From the publisher:
In her kitchen at the Red Door Inn, executive chef Caden Holt is calm, collected, and competent. But when her boss asks her to show off their beautiful island to impress a visiting travel writer and save the inn, Caden is forced to face a world much bigger than her kitchen--and a man who makes her wish she was beautiful.
Journalist Adam Jacobs is on a forced sabbatical on Prince Edward Island. He's also on assignment to uncover a story. Instead he's falling in love with the island's red shores and Caden's sweets.
When Caden discovers Adam isn't who she thought he was, she realizes that the article he's writing could do more than ruin the inn's chances for survival--it might also break her heart.
Readers will discover hope for the hurting, joy for the broken, and romance for the lonely at the enchanting Red Door Inn.
I finished this book today and I really cannot think of enough ways to say it was wonderful. I love the writing and story telling of Liz Johnson. Her depiction of Caden and Adam and their connection was sublime.
Caden is impact and yet perfect. She isn't slim and sexy, but loves to cook and eat. She is human like we all are. Her insecurities are something readers will relate to. I love that Adam looks not "beyond" Caden's outward appearance but instead sees her as she is and calls her beautiful. The development of their feelings for each other was well done and realistic. I loved it.
There was some deep spiritual issues in this book as well. About self-worth, forgiveness, and grace. Liz Johnson handled these with care and grace. This book is truly stunning.
I highly recommend this book (and the one before it!)
I wish the Red Door Inn was real and I could go visit.
I received this book free from the publisher and was not required to write a positive review.
