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.


I'm so glad I picked up Where To Hearts Meet by Liz Johnson! Yes, this is book 2 of the Prince Edward Island series, and yes, I'm going to read book one for sure now! Somehow, I've been doing things backwards lately, including starting on a series not from the beginning. It doesn't truly matter, especially with this one. It reads nicely as a standalone, and I wasn't lost at all.

Where Two Hearts Meet is warm, endearing and simply delectable. Our main characters each carry some emotional baggage, and I love how the author plays it out, allowing them to sort through, acknowledge and ultimately overcome because of love from others and from God. It's not to say, that's all and they won't ever have to deal with it again. Instead, it's something that doesn't need to overtake you, or put you down. It doesn't need to be forgotten, but remembered.

"You can't spend you life thinking only of the ones you've lost. Not when the living need you too" (336) 
The romance was sweet and the supporting characters added quite the comical element to Caden and Adam's romantic story. That scene with Aretha and Esther talking about them as if Caden's not right there listening! Goodness! I felt a tad bit mortified for Caden, when I'm not even there (or that I'm a fictional character in the book)!

Heartfelt and filled with grace, add in having set in the beautiful Prince Edward Island, Where Two Hearts Meet will not disappoint. Just don't get sidetrack by all the food talk in there! *wink wink.
