Book Review - TANGERINE MORNING by Rita Garcia
And again. Another great book in the Serenity Cove Series by Rita Garcia. Don't ask me why I reviewed Book 3 (Lavender Rain) before this Book 2--dyslexia? Discombobulation? Grandma Brain? Who knows? Anyhow, you really should read this book before Lavender Rain, but if you twisted them up (like I did), it's a forgivable sin....
This is the story of Jezzica Leigh, a young widow reeling from death of her husband, murdered two years before and taken from her by what must be a capricious God's whim. She sells the house she and her husband built with such dreams and comes to Serenity Cove to wallow in self pity. She's disgusted with detectives who can't find the first clue, but at least here maybe she can escape the memories and the stress.
Except that she can't. Her sister shows up with husband troubles, bringing Jezzica's nieces with her. Peace and solitude become distant and unreachable stars. She buys an old bookstore and begins renovating it, again with hopes of forgetfulness.
She finds herself being attracted to, of all things, a local detective named Zack Johnston. Every twinge of attraction plunges her into feelings of betrayal.
Zack on the other hand is determined not only to win her affections but also to find her husband's killers.
When it becomes apparent there are also thugs afoot in peaceful Serenity Cove, Zack is even more determined.
Despair, mystery, and--maybe--resolution await your purchase of this delightful books. Available from Amazon and Barnes and Noble. If you hurry, you could slip this book ahead of Lavender Rain on your TBR pile. Go ahead. You know you want it.
The author gave me this book from the goodness of her heart, not even asking for an honest review--so I'm giving it anyway. Thanks, Rita!
