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?
This was a good 'deep' book. Marie left to get away from memories and her father. She has no money and no where to stay when she meets a man who offers her a place if she helps him and his nephew renovate a b&b. Seth thinks his uncle is crazy to have offered a woman they don't know a place. He is also hurting and trying to recover. He and Marie agree on nothing and she is extremely apprehensive around him. Both of them need to heal and maybe, they need each other for that process.
This author does a great job with this Island. The descriptions and details make you feel like you are there living this. I really liked Marie from the start. She was hurting and I felt her pain. Seth, I did like him, but to start out with, I wasn't sure that was going to be the case. The other characters in the book aren't one-dimensional either, but well developed and intriguing. I do want to see more from this place and these people!
It was a 4/5. I will look for the next book from this author!
