In her kitchen at the 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.
When Adam shows up in Caden’s kitchen at the Rose’s Red Door Inn, not only is her composure shaken, but also her world. Adam, with his kind smile and mysterious past, has the power to bring up all Caden’s insecurities, not knowing she makes him want to be a better man.
I loved Caden. Always second-best—at best—she cannot believe a man like Adam could possibly be interested in more than her scrumptious baking. But he sees what she is unable to recognize in herself, her courage, determination, and compassionate heart.
And I adored this story of family dysfunctions, secrets and misunderstandings, realistic (and sometimes grating) characters, and descriptions of Prince Edward Island that put it high on my bucket list. Where Two Hearts Meet is a fabulous, mouth-watering story of second chances and the grace that grants them. I award this story four and a half stars.
