Where Two Hearts Meet by Liz Johnson - a book reiew

This novel is not what I’d call Christian fiction.  While it is certainly not “un-Christian”, I would prefer to call it ‘clean’ fiction.  Christianity is more of an undertone in this book, rather than a prevailing theme.  As I said, I would consider this more of a ‘clean’ fiction.  In my opinion, there were no inappropriate intimate situations or foul language that would have made this just another contemporary novel.  While there is no real strong thread of personal faith, this novel does deal with what I call ‘soul’ issues.  Topics such as self esteem, addiction, PTSD and disfunctional families. 

The main characters are not the usual perfect cookie cutter characters.  They are delightfully imperfect. Caden, the main female character is described  like this…”what she lacked in height, she made up for in breadth.”  The main male character, Adam, is often rumpled and disheveled.  Both very human, likable and relateable.

The story is set on Prince Edward Island at a quaint island inn.  The author does a very good job of describing the landscape, customs and local attractions.

This is from the publisher’s website…
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 a very easy to read, enjoyable book.  A ‘feel good’  story  If you’re a fan of contemporary , clean fiction, you won’t be disappointed with this one.
