Come dip your toes in the crystal blue waves of Serenity Cove. 

This heartwarming and uplifting women’s fiction will take you on a journey of healing, friendship, family, faith, and love.

At twenty-nine. Magnolia “Maggie” Delatorre's serene life is thrown into chaos. A marriage proposal from Pastor Jim gives her much to ponder. But when her college sweetheart moves to Serenity Cove, gossip on the street heats up with rumors of Nick Callahan and Maggie together again. Now, she must decide between becoming a pastor's wife and rekindling the flame from the past. 

But that's not the biggest challenge. The defining moment in her life comes as she listens to Doc’s diagnosis, and cringes at what she views as a death sentence. 

The storms in Maggie’s life will test the depth of her faith and heart. Finding a faint thread of hope is difficult. Can Maggie cling to her faith and learn to trust God in a bigger way than she ever thought possible?

"Ahh Serenity Cove, would love to live there. Love this series and all the people who share in this series. Have been in Kennebunkport and for some reason I picture this type of place when I read this book. This story covers several issues relevant to real life and you fall in love with the community feel of the Cove."

"Rita Garcia has written a beautiful novel, entwining friendship, faith, and love as part of a healing process for a woman with grit. I cheered Maggie on every step of her journey."

"It was a pleasant surprise to learn Rita Garcia was returning to Serenity Cove with her third novel in the series, Lavender Rain. This is Maggie's story, and I think this might be the strongest book in the series, and that's saying a lot because I really enjoyed the first two.
I read Lavender Rain in one sitting because I was captivated by Maggie and the conflict surrounding her. Rita developed a strong heroine here who has to learn medical terms and options and face the side effects and unexpected head on. Yet, Maggie is human and Rita does an excellent job bringing Maggie's fears to the surface. I loved the verse the book started with. It was just the right touch.
I won't give any spoilers but I hope she has a fourth book planned. I'd love for Maggie's journey to continue.
As she's done with the other Serenity Cove novels, there are a plethora of folks sprinkled throughout that are more than characters. They feel like neighbors. This is a book full of conflict, romance, friends, and faith"
