About the book:
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.
This was another wonderful story in the Prince Edward Island series! I loved Caden; she was such a sweet and caring person, but had very low self-esteem due to how some people had treated her because of her weight. Adam was also a wonderful character. He struggled with so much guilt over some past mistakes and my heart hurt for both him and Caden. I loved seeing their friendship bloom and their relationship progress to something more. I also loved all of the discussion of food and recipes. It all sounded amazing and I was jealous of Adam getting to be a taste-tester! There were some wonderful secondary characters, especially an elderly couple also visiting who befriend Adam and Caden. The man had been a prisoner in a concentration camp as a child and he helped Adam understand more about grace. They have a wonderful discussion, along with one he has with Caden about forgiveness as Adam starts to realize he can't continue to carry these burdens alone. There were some funny moments and some very sweet romantic ones. The island sounds amazing and I'm definitely going to have to visit there now. This story works as a stand-alone, but you'll definitely want to read about Caden's friends, Marie and Seth, in book one. I highly recommend this book!
I received this book free of charge from Revell.
