In the kitchen, Caden Holt can tackle any challenge. Outside it, life proves to be a little more complicated. When a travel writer visits the struggling inn where she cooks, her boss and friend asks Caden to show him the best places the island has to offer in a desperate attempt to save the inn.
A forced sabbatical and an undercover assignment have landed journalist Adam Jacobs on Prince Edward Island, and he’s none too happy about it. However, when he tastes Caden’s mouthwatering concoctions, Adam just may have found a way to survive the summer, that is, if he can convince her to stop kicking him out of her kitchen.
Feelings start to blossom as the pair wade through their hurts and insecurities. But when Caden discovers that Adam isn’t who she believed, the Red Door Inn’s survival hangs more precariously than ever, only now Caden may lose her job, as well as her heart.
Liz Johnson pens a sweet tale of love, hope, and second chances. Where Two Hearts Meet invites readers to bask in the beauty of PEI, and more importantly, in the knowledge that God calls us in spite of imperfections.
Compelling and relatable characters drew me into the book. I often saw myself reflected in Caden — if only I could make cinnamon rolls like hers too — and I loved watching her and Adam fall in love. Johnson’s skillful storytelling transported me to the island and its breathtaking shorelines, and I’m pretty sure my muscles ached after experiencing Taco Bed. At times, I would have sworn I could hear the tinkering pans and smell the delicious aromas wafting from Caden’s kitchen. A word of advice, don’t read this while you are hungry.
The author weaves an ever-present but never overbearing thread of faith into the novel, reminding readers that no one is beyond grace. Romance fans won’t want to miss this delightful continuation to the Prince Edward Island Dreams series.
