Welcome to Serenity Cove with the book that started it all!
A powerful novel of love, loss, and the magic of friendship. . . .

Samantha Forrester has it all together. Deafness did not hamper her success. After college, she opened a school for deaf children. Life, although predictable, has hit a comfortable stride. 
Sam’s world crumbles when family secrets buried for 30 years come to light…Now everything’s changed. 
With her hearing-dog, Goldie, she travels to Serenity Cove in search of her true identity. She becomes enamored with the town. And then there’s police chief Logan Delatorre who startles her pulse. And grandparents who refuse to acknowledge her. 
More mystery unfolds—someone wants her out of Serenity Cove—at any cost. 
Samantha’s faith is called into question when she stumbles over the need to forgive. Can Dr. Ellie Clarimonde help her connect the pieces of her past and learn the power of forgiveness?  
*While not the main subject, this book briefly deals with mental illness.
Slip into paradise with Kaleidoscope Summer. 

"I can only agree with the other reviews with a few exclamation points added. I read Kaleidoscope Summer in one day (something I haven't done in a very long time).
And, I'll read it again - just to enjoy the amazing panorama of beauty Rita weaves into her story. She's a master painter with her words. Once you step in to Serenity Cove, you won't want to leave. The characters are original and interesting with the depth of issues that will keep you reading until they reach their resolution. I'm on my way to my shopping cart to order the sequel, Tangerine Morning - Jezzica's Story (Volume Two of the Serenity Cove series.) I can't wait to feast my eyes again on this lovely coastal town!"

"This was such a beautiful story. The characters were well-defined and easy to love. There were several different relationships explored. Everything from the connection between a woman and her adoptive mother to a wonderful romance to God's abundant love. I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to read an incredible story of love and perseverance."

"If you want to be transported to a place that will wrap it's arms around you and claim you as it's own, you have arrived!Welcome to a town that has all the wonderful things that you find in a SMALL TOWN. You will simply fall in love with with Sam. As she comes face to face with a past that was hidden,and tries to put things into perspective,she will find God always has our best interest at heart. Sometimes the road to that end can be pretty bumpy! ENJOY!"
