Caden Holt is the chef at Rose’s Red Door Inn. She is happy and fulfilled, cooking amazing breakfasts and tasty sweets for the b&b guests. She is happy and not looking for a change. But she overhears her friends and owners talking about the inn being in trouble. They have the summer to save the inn and get it booked for the next summer, or Caden’s job is in trouble.

Adam Jacobs is a journalist sent to Red Door to rest. He saw too many things overseas and is suffering the worst kind of writer’s block. He needs inspiration to get his career back.

Caden and Adam strike up a friendship as Adam is suspected to be on a secret mission, working for a travel magazine. Could this be the break the Red Door has been looking for? Is Adam who he actually says he is? Will his writings help the inn, or hurt its chances? Could Adam actually be falling in love with plain but sweet Caden?

This was a very sweet read from start to finish. I found myself wishing for island breezes, and simple front porch living as I finished this novel. Well written!

Another Day Another Dali by Sandra Orchard

9780800726690.jpgThis book is about FBI special agent Serena Jones, who specializes in art theft. This adventure begins when Serena’s tough-as-nails, well-to-do Nana asks for Serena’s help with her friend’s forged painting. Serena hates to get involved because her Nana is rarely pleased with her. But she accepts the case and can’t imagine how difficult the case will be to crack, or who will be endangered in the process.

As Serena goes through her list of suspects, the case grows and takes many twists and turns. Gladys’ own children are suspects, and as the story unravels, the identity of the forger becomes clear, and the person behind it is the one Serena least expected.

In the end, Serena and her Nana make peace, and Serena discovers why her Nana has held her at arms’ length all these years. Also, her neighbor Nate and partner Tanner, both seem to have sweet feelings for her. So, the next in the series should have the reveal for that!

I usually love Sandra Orchard’s titles, but this one was a little more difficult to follow. I’m not sure why. But I even re-started it to give it a fair try. I did eventually get to that “can’t-put-it-down” mode, but this one wasn’t her usual nail-biter.
