When a young wife becomes a widow, she's forced to spread her wings to rediscover herself—and her passions—in this heartwarming novel from author Rita Garcia. 

After witnessing her husband's murder at the hands of two carjackers, Jezzica Leigh struggles with starting over. She moves to Serenity Cove and purchases the Sea Glass Bookshop on Main Street.

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.


How will Jezzica find the freedom to love again? 


"Tangerine Morning offers another quaint and cozy visit to Serenity Cove. As much as I enjoyed Samantha and Logan's story line in Kaleidoscope Summer, the introduction to Jezzica and Zack was a seamless transition. I was easily drawn into their unique history and the tensions they encounter in the battle for their hearts and minds. The right mixture of romance and peril surrounded by the beauty of this coastal community makes for an entertaining and inspiring reading experience. Rita Garcia offers hope through circumstances that are true-to-life, and each challenge leads to the proper Source. The villains are menacing and evil; the heroes and heroines, completely engaging. I love that the third of this series is on the sea-swept horizon."

"I loved Tangerine Morning by Rita Garcia. It was exciting, interesting and filled with a wonderful storyline. This is the second in the series call Serenity Cove. I often worry when I start a book in a series. Many of them must be read in sequence but this one was easy to pick up on from the beginning. I enjoyed it so much that I am going to purchase the first in the series. The author uses much imagery in Tangerine Morning. I felt like I was in the midst of the story, just watching and feeling the emotions of the characters. I loved how the land and area was described in such a way that I could see the beauty. Even though this is a fictional place, I would love to visit it. Yep, it was that descriptive. The storyline kept my interest thought out the book. I did not want the story to end.
This was the first book I had read by this author but it will not be the last.
I rate this book a 5 star and recommend it to anyone who is looking to escape this world for a while and be taken away to Serenity Cove."

"I love this author! The Serenity Cove Series is such fun! I'd love to live in Serenity Cove! I recommend this book!"
