Romance in Serenity Cove

What better day to read a romantic book than


Rita Garcia vividly describes her home in southern California
 with her novels in the little village of Serenity Cove. Her first novel, Kaleidescope Summer introduces us to this small town.
As she puts it -

"Romance, mystery and family drama intertwine in the small town of Serenity Cove. 

The fictional town of Serenity Cove boasts of beautiful sunsets and roaring waves. Its characters are as varied as the stars that shine on its diamond crusted-sea. Shoreview Drive provides a scenic drive along the coast, although most residents simply call it the coastal road. Serenity Cove is a contemporary town where people are still good neighbors and family and friends are an important part of everyday life. Where life is a step back in time, blending the best of both worlds. Even a town as wonderful as Serenity Cove has its villains..."

Rita Garcia's new novel
is all about hope and a second chance.

Jezzica Shaffer, a young widow, struggles in her relationship with Christ and with starting over. She moves to Serenity Cove and purchases the Sea Glass Bookshop on Main Street.

Detective Zack Johnston, the first man her heart reacts to since her husband’s death, also represents a world that failed to bring her husband’s murderers to justice.

Can Dr. Ellie Carimonde help find her way back to Christ and the freedom to love again?

“…but they that wait upon the LORD
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint.”
~Isaiah 40:31

Thanks, Vonnie, for featuring my Serenity Cove Series on Valentine"s Day! I'd never thought about the fact that Serenity Cove is so like my much loved home in southern California. I think also has a little bit of my favorite vacation spot, Maui, in it. :) I do love the seashore and the sound of the tossing waves. Thank you for making my day special!
