"Where Two Hearts Meet" by Liz Johnson

Last spring, I read Liz Johnson's The Red Door Inn, set on Prince Edward Island. It was a very sweet, romantic novel, and I knew then that I'd want to continue Johnson's series. What I didn't anticipate was just how much I'd enjoy the sequel.


In her 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.

Where The Red Door Inn was enjoyable, Where Two Hearts Meet was completely spellbinding. Caden is such a likable heroine—talented yet tentative, Caden is always relegated to the fringes ... until Adam Jacobs shows up and begins drawing her out.

The romance between Caden and Adam is one of the most swoon-worthy in recent memory, and their "almost kiss" about halfway through the novel is one I'll long remember! Their relationship slowly builds throughout the novel, and it seriously just gets better and better.

While the novel isn't all romance—I especially enjoyed Caden's cooking classes for local teens, Adam's search for the perfect story, and the inn's guests—the romance is what kept me reading. Author Liz Johnson improves with each novel, and I can't wait to read the next book in the series, which will release next summer. 5 stars.

Buy the book.
