Title: Where Two Hearts Meet (Prince Edward Island Series #2)
Author: Liz Johnson
My rating is 5+ stars.
Being an avid reader is a great blessing to me. The hard part is when a sequel comes out and though I remember the basics of the first story, I forget the nuances. So after I reread the first book in the series titled,The Red Door, I dove into Where Two Hearts Meet eager to see what happened with the main characters. In the series, it is not a matter of one or two main characters as there are really many with some reappearing of background people or introducing a new player to the story on Prince Edward Island.
If you haven’t read the first book, let me just say that we see once again Marie and Seth in the Red Door Inn with Caden having a bigger role in the sequel. When Liz Johnson first had Adam show up at the back door of the inn one day, I thought it was the man who hurt Marie in book one or her father;yet, it was neither. Adam came to the island because his editor sent him there on sabbatical because of his inability to cope with a previous assignment that kept haunting him.
As time passes, we watch as Caden learns to come out of her shell to risk her heart in many ways and Adam learning to allow grace to coat his heart. Adam also needs to know where he is going in life. The one person he wants might be afraid to allow him in her heart then he suddenly leaves without saying goodbye.
My heart was tugged many times as I read the book as Adam lived with nightmares and carried around a weight of guilt by his own choice. Caden is one of my favorites as I can identify with her in the aspects of seeing others so often fall in love when I was younger and not being chosen. Plus Caden is afraid to risk and doesn’t see herself for the courage she really lives out as she gets up after a time of losing in a contest to try again and again.
There will be a third book coming out next summer. While I am sure we will see what the latest is with Seth, Marie, Caden and Adam, I cannot help but wonder what is going to be revealed. These books take me to a place where I have never been, except in my imagination. Perhaps someday I can go to this island to see it for myself. I had to laugh when the author dedicated this book to her sister and shared an experience. Then when you read the blip about the author after the acknowledgements in theback of the book, there is a comment that refers to the dedication. I have a feeling you will burst out laughing too!I love when authors allow people to see they are just like anybody else and sometimes it’s just hilarious!
