A Small Town, Enemies to Lovers Romance

Serenity Cove Series - Book 2
Rita Garcia ebook-2.jpg

A young widow struggling with starting over discovers strength she never knew she had, opening her up to a future beyond her imagination. 


Rocked by tragedy, Jezzica heads to the one place that makes her happy: her family’s beach cottage in Serenity Cove. Her life is nothing like she’d imagined it would be, but purchasing a bookshop on Main Street is the first step into a new world. 


Learning that Detective Zack Johnston will be renting a cottage just down the beach from her isn’t the news she wanted to hear. The man represents the very system she loathes for failing to bring her husband’s murderers to justice. 


Zack’s met with cold unfriendliness when he visits Jezzica’s bookshop. It’s not until he finds a stray cat in the alley that her attitude begins to thaw. He’s almost relieved when he realizes it’s not him she doesn’t trust, it’s detectives in general, and he contemplates trying to solve her husband’s murder. 


Just as things are beginning to look up for Jezzica and the bookstore, danger closes in on Serenity Cove. Someone’s determined to make sure she doesn’t talk. Will Jezzica and Zack’s chance at a happily-ever-after be lost forever? Buy your copy today. 

What Reader's Are Saying!
Julie says: "Tangerine Morning has everything I look for in a book. Strong, well-developed characters to love and root for. Serenity Cove is every bit a character in the series, and the fictional community shines here. There is suspense, action, and romance. Characters from Kaleidoscope Summer are back, too. Dr. Ellie continues her work as a counselor, and her sage advice is something I think readers can benefit from, too. I especially love how Rita's training as a psychologist comes into play in her fiction. Jezzica truly struggles, and it's authentic. You feel her pain, and conflict as she develops a friendship with Zack. I thought her journey was exceptional, and I had already immensely enjoyed Samantha's story."

Nancy says: 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."
