 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.



Romance, mystery and family drama intertwine in the small town of Serenity Cove. 
The fictional town of Serenity Cove boasts of beautiful sunsets and roaring waves. Its characters are as varied as the stars that shine on its diamond crusted-sea. Shoreview Drive provides a scenic drive along the coast, although most residents simply call it the coastal road. Serenity Cove is a contemporary town where people are still good neighbors and family and friends are an important part of everyday life. Where life is a step back in time, blending the best of both worlds. Even a town as wonderful as Serenity Cove has its villains…
