About the Book

One blizzard. Two friends. Three days to fall in love. 

Lifelong islander Brooke Kane doesn’t know what to do with her college degree, her dreams, or her future, but she knows better than to venture far from home when there’s a storm brewing. But a promise to check on Rose’s Red Door Inn prompts Brooke to venture out. By the time she arrives at the inn, the snow is knee-deep and visibility almost non-existent. She settles in to spend a few days alone at the inn until a familiar figure appears at the door. 

Father Chuck O’Flannigan has never felt like a bigger fool. So focused on his recent decision to leave Prince Edward Island, he’s caught unaware by the blizzard while on a walk. He can only see the inn’s red door, a promise of safety. But when he discovers that Brooke—the only woman who could tempt him to stay on the island—is also taking refuge there, he knows he’s in trouble. 

With Christmas only three days away, Brooke is determined that they’ll celebrate—even if it’s just the two of them. Happy to play Scrooge to her Tiny Tim, Chuck wiles away his hours dreaming of a return to Ireland—praying that God may have plans for him there. After all, God seems to have forgotten him in North Rustico. But as Brooke brings Christmas to life, her joy makes him wonder if God may not have forgotten him. In fact, God may have big plans for both of them—if they can only survive Christmas at the Red Door Inn.

In a mere span of chapters you will fall in love with this story and its enchanting characters: the woman back in her hometown, trying to find her place in the world and the man experiencing a season of change, questioning his role in life, too. And boy, does one blizzard throw them for a loop! Maybe there’s something about close quarters, no running water, borrowed Christmas things, and the emotional vulnerability that comes with the Christmas season…. whatever the case, this combination proves just what Brook and Chuck need to experience something brand new (yet years-in-the-longing). 

Liz Johnson’s way with romance just “clicks” and makes the reader instantly empathize with the characters. There’s something about the purity in her approach that’s a prime example of why I adore the Christian fiction genre (and what sets it apart along with its Biblical worldview). The beauty of romance (with all its attraction and spark) is still very present, but it is related in a way that keeps it realistic, swoony, and with a certain innocence. I could say the same for the previous books in the “Prince Edward Island Dreams” series or her newest novel, A Sparkle of Silverfrom earlier this year (hello, favorite first kiss of the year!!!! Ben ❤ Millie ).

I hope you have the chance to read a book by Liz sometime soon! I love this story so much I’m giving away a copy! Enter via the Rafflecopter form below.
