The Red Door Inn (Prince Edward Island Dreams, #1) by Liz Johnson
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?

As the book opens we meet Jack, such a wonderful kind and Godly man, he has such a big heart and when he meets Marie, he takes pity on her and buys her a ticket on the ferry, and this kindness is about to change her life forever.
Jack’s life is up in the air, but he opens his home to Marie, giving her a small apartment in his home, that has already been promised to another. Jack is working to make his deceased wife’s Ruth dream come alive; he is opening a bed and breakfast. We are about to meet another broken person, Seth, he has been betrayed in the worst way.
Unknown to Jack or Seth, Marie has an eye for decorating, and throws her hand into everything, trying to bury the pain. These are three broken individuals and you can see God’s hand in putting them together. Because of Marie and her needs and love she finds here in being part of a family, she opens their world to meet others in PEI, and they become a much more extended family.
Many secrets are revealed here, and you will be shocked at how some of them are handled, and others are so sweet.
This is book one and I loved it and see that there is a sequel coming in the Fall 2016, I can’t wait!
