The Red Door Inn by Liz Johnson

The Red Door Inn book cover

Marie Carrington dreams of moving to Prince Edward Island and finding sanctuary on the quiet island. However, she does not even have enough funds to travel, much less live on the island. So when she receives a job offer from an elderly gentleman who is remodeling a bed and breakfast, she hesitantly accepts. Seth Sloane moves across the country to help his uncle restore the old Victorian bed and breakfast but does not expect to find a young, jumpy female who has expensive taste. He hopes that he can forget about a fiancée who broke his heart but conflicts with Marie cause him to continue to feel unsettled. The two must learn to work together, perhaps finding something even better in the process.

I fell in love with Marie in this novel from page one. The author does a great job of demonstrating her finding love and acceptance both in new friends and her Heavenly Father after past hurts. The setting of the story is lovely, the scenery beautifully depicted. The plot flows well, incorporating spiritual truths among an interesting plot. There were some characters that I did not love and certain portions of the story that were frustrating to me as a reader but the theme of redemption shines through. I recommend this to those who enjoy contemporary fiction with stories of healing and forgiveness.

I received a copy of this book from Revell Publishing in exchange for an honest review.
