Book two of the Serenity Cove Series:
Romance, mystery and family drama intertwine in the small town of Serenity Cove.
Jezzica Leigh, a young widow, struggles in her relationship with Christ and 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. Can she find her way back to Christ and the freedom to love again?
“…but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.” ~Isaiah 40:31
I have never read any of Rita Garcia’s books before. I am very often turned off by these types of books. Often, I admit, I find the story line to be rather sappy and lacking i “realism”,
This one did not leave me with the feeling of refreshing I usually get from a good book. I did keep in mind that there was a story prior to this one that I am not familiar with.
This was a very emotional read; it tugged at your heart. Truly many moments that were dramatic and inspiring. However the underlying story line was beautiful and for one who loves a good novel this could be a wonderful and powerful read. The message within is one of healing; of letting go and knowing that God is in control.
I feel this was in some ways a blessing to read. And I can recommend it to anyone who loves a heart warming, tear jerking type of read. 🙂
