A man on her list of intentions. Until Nicholas Callahan.
Skye, a twenty-something, with curls the color of pink diamonds, brings chaos and music into Julia’s kitchen. With a passion for singing, she pursues her dreams, against all the odds.
Paige is a thirty-something, with the roles of wife, mother, and Nicholas’s daughter-in-law. She objects to a relationship between Julia and Nicholas, as her own world spins out of control. Paige brings chaos and children into Julia’s home. Julia determines to soften Paige’s heart with kindness.
Can these three women meet the challenges, changes, and choices in each of their lives?
"I enjoyed reading Julia's story which reflected the character of grace. Julia is resilient and her loving spirit changes the lives of people around her. It was refreshing to read a story that shared the inner struggles of a 'seasoned' woman and love after loss. A wonderful light read that gives an inspirational message in a conversational tone. Wonderfully done!"
"Rita Garcia's characters come to life and draw you into their world. She writes beautifully, with a style that is engaging."
"The author has such a way with words.....and brings her characters to life! I was so enthralled with the story and rode a roller coaster the whole way through. I laughed, I cried, I held my breath, I was proud, I was heartbroken, and at times even a little angry. But, the whole time the suspense of not knowing what was going to happen next kept my eyes glued to the pages. This of course, was Rita Garcia’s fourth in the series, plus her two most recent Christmas stories. Now, I start on Christmas Future, and I already know when it’s over I am going to miss Serenity Cove so much! You’ve got love, romance, suspense, and friendship all wrapped up in this story. Get to know the characters by reading the previous three if you can...you won’t be sorry...guaranteed!"
