Marie Carrington is running from a host of bad memories. Broke and desperate, she's hoping to find safety and sanctuary on Prince Edward Island, where she reluctantly agrees to help decorate a renovated bed-and-breakfast before it opens for prime tourist season.

Seth Sloane didn't move three thousand miles to work on his uncle's B&B so he could babysit a woman with a taste for expensive antiques and a bewildering habit of jumping every time he brushes past her. He came to help restore the old Victorian--and to forget about the fiancée who broke his heart.

The only thing Marie and Seth agree on is that getting the Red Door Inn ready to open in just three months will take everything they've got. Can these two wounded souls find hope, healing, and perhaps a bit of romance on this beautiful island?

Step into the Red Door Inn, a lovely home away from home tucked along the north shore of fabled Prince Edward Island. It's a place where the wounded come to heal, the broken find forgiveness, and the lonely find a family. Won't you stay for the season?

My thoughts:  RED DOOR INN is  a simply beautiful story -- set in the most beautiful island of Prince Edward Island, thanks to Maud Montgomery and Anne of Green Gables.  Marie in RED DOOR INN is  a fan of Anne's, too, and as she dutifully seeks out treasures for helping to theme the RED DOOR INN, she is sure to use Anne themed items, too. 

Marie and Seth are both hurting characters, both betrayed and hurt in horrible ways they must heal from.  I absolutely LOVED Jack as he noticed Marie in the ferry waiting area and despite her rebuffal refused to back off, talking about the only thing he could think of -- paint samples. And of course, that is one of the things Marie is passionate about. A God thing, really. 

I thoroughly loved this book and absolutely cannot wait until the next book in the series comes out in the fall of this year. If you love Prince Edward Island and contemporary romance you will not want to miss RED DOOR INN.  

5 stars
