Red Door Inn Series and absolutely loved it. In this second installment, Marie and Seth are pretty much esconced in running the Red Door Inn, while Caden is running the kitchen. The only fly in the ointment is that the Inn needs some repairs and money is tight. The only saving grace is that a travel writer is coming to spend some time at the Inn and the publicity can make or break the Inn.
Adam Jacobs has been exiled to Prince Edward Island in order to get his mind back on straight and write his final story in his contract. His first sin is to invade Caden's kitchen and then Marie asks Caden to show him around the island, thinking he is the travel writer. Adam's story is supposed to be the story of Marie's family and her father's ruthlessness in his real estate dealings.
In the meantime, Caden has to come up with a lobster dish to compete in the island's festival, competing against her high school nemesis. One of the well-known Toronto restauranteurs is one of the judges who comes to the Inn and sees Caden in action--especially her program to teach some high school students basic cooking.
Liz Johnson creates mouth-watering descriptions of characters, places, and food. Her characters become friends who can make you cry, laugh, and help you pig out on some of the best pastries you've ever put into your mouth. The places become as familiar as your hometown, and the food is to die for.
This is a book worth five stars, two thumbs up, and a melt-in-your-mouth pastry
