Rita Garcia/ Tangerine Morning
ASIN: B00B9O2U86 | List Price: $2.99 for Kindle, $5.73 for Soft cover /  | Format: Kindle and Soft cover | Page Count: 202
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…
Slip into paradise with Rita’s Inspirational Romance: Tangerine Morning, Jezzica’s Story.
Book Two of the Serenity Cove Series.
Jezzica Leigh, 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, in hopes of letting go of the past and moving forward with her life.
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. The same criminals that now seek to harm Jezzica.
Can Dr. Ellie Clarimonde help Jezzica find her way back to Christ and the freedom to love again?
“…but those who hope in 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

My Review:

This was a very fast read, I was able to finish it in a few hours and that was in between taking care of my son and doing laundry.  It was pretty fast paced and filled with great characters that I would like to get to know.  We met Jezzica in Kaleidoscope Morning.  She came to Serenity Cove to get over the loss of her husband.  She buys the Sea Glass Book Shop from Samantha.  In the process she meets new detective to town, Zack.  When the thugs who killed her husband show up, Zack has to protect her.  Rita Garcia did a good job with this book.  Jezzica;s  struggle was so believable.  I enjoyed this story more than I did the first Serenity Cove Novel.  If you are looking for a quick, fast paced read that will keep your attention then this is the book for you.  I look forward to more Serenity Cove Novels and catching up on what the folks of Serenity Cove are doing.  It seems like a wonderful place that I would love to visit.

I received a complimentary copy of this book for my honest review.
