Samantha’s world crumbles when family secrets buried for 29 years come to light… Now everything’s changed.

Samantha Forrester has it all together. Deafness has not hamper her success. And life, although predictable, has hit a comfortable stride.

After her mother’s death, she finds a bundle of old letters and learns she was adopted, as though someone had stolen her identity.  

With her hearing dog, Goldie, Samantha 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 biological grandparents who refuse to acknowledge her.

More mystery unfolds—someone wants her out of Serenity Cove—at any cost.

A powerful novel of love, loss, and the magic of friendship... 

"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.
