Where Two Hearts Meet by Liz Johnson | Book review by Loraine Nunley

What is this book about?

In the kitchen at Rose’s 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.

My review:

I knew when I met Caden in the first book of this series that I would love her story and I was right! There was no way I was going to be able to resist rooting for such a sweet and down to earth woman. The romance between her and Adam was everything I want to read in a love story.

Caden represented most women I know, including myself—The one who thinks that she’s a little lacking in the looks department. Whether it was her lamenting over a few extra pounds on her curvy frame or comparing herself to other vibrant women, I related with her in a deep way. She felt she was not worthy of a second glance especially from a handsome man.

Enter Adam, who had his own ghosts. This was a man who seemed to have it all figured out, at least on the surface. But his own vulnerabilities made him look at people in more depth, including Caden. More importantly, he treated her like the special woman she was.

Watching their relationship blossom into a deep friendship was such a treat. She gave him strength to face his internal fears, and he gave her courage to be the woman God wanted her to be.

What I enjoyed most about this book:

Definitely the growth of the relationship between Caden and Adam.

What I didn’t like about this book:

Nothing. This is what romance should be.

Rating 5 out of 5 stars

Would I recommend this book to others? You bet! The romance natural and sweet. The characters were relatable and just really good. Even the secondary characters were fun to read about. This is the second book in the series. It can be read as a standalone but I do think that Caden’s backstory, which is in the first book, gives this story a little more depth.

  1. I have read the series about the Georgia Coast but need to read this first series about the Red Door Inn. I have the first book. So many books, so little time.
