Book Review: - KALEIDOSCOPE SUMMER by Rita Garcia
Rita Garcia knows how to spin a tale that will keep you hoping and guessing right up to the last chapter. I loved this one, Book 1 of the Samantha's Story series--I think you will too.
Samantha's stable, elite world took some strange turns when she found out she was adopted, and it spun nearly out of control when her birth mother, Anne, died and left her a book store with an apartment upstairs--and a farm with her birth grandparents living there.
Anne had died suddenly of heart problems before Samantha had a chance to meet her, although they had exchanged emails. Odd--Everyone in town thought Anne almost walked on water, even though she had birthed Samantha in a town and in a time when babies born outside of marriage were reason for scorn.
Samantha had been adopted by an older couple whose parents had already passed away, and now her adopted parents were also deceased. The thought of having grandparents was a welcome one until she found out they wanted nothing to do with her.
And something strange is happening around town; in particular around the store. That good-looking cop, Hank, has his hands full. But Samantha isn't interested in him (much) but she hopes he can solve this mystery. Still--he's been her rescuer several times over....
Run, don't walk, to the nearest computer and get this book from Amazon or Barnes and Noble.
I received a free copy of this book from the author. She didn't ask for an honest review, but I gave it anyway!
