A Story of Love, Hope, and Forgiveness

Samantha Forrester has it all together. Deafness at age fifteen has not hampered her success. Life, although predictable, has hit a comfortable stride. Until.

Her world crumbles when secrets of the past are brought to light. She travels to Serenity Cove to settle her birth mother’s estate and search for her true identity. Samantha soon becomes enamored with the town. And then there’s police chief Logan Delatorre who startles her pulse, and grandparents who refuse to acknowledge her. More mystery unfolds when an attack is levied against her—someone wants her out of Serenity Cove.
Samantha’s faith is called into question when she stumbles over the need to forgive. Can Dr. Ellie Clarimonde help her connect the pieces of her past and learn the power of forgiveness?

This book is an easy read, hope-filled novel. I enjoyed reading it. It will hook you from the start. It has just the right amount of mystery, romance, and authenticity. Samantha will capture your heart as you follow her story and get involved in her life, and her relationship with Logan. The characters are down to earth people you can relate to.  We all have areas in our lives where we need to learn forgiveness. And we all need a little more HOPE. Only through the grace of God, at times, can we have the Hope we need and the ability to offer the forgiveness many times others do not deserve. But forgiveness is freeing for us and brings healing to the soul. Dr. Rita Garcia incorporates her counseling knowlege to this story in a very unique way.  I am sure you will enjoy this book as much as I have.

Dr. Rita Garcia is an inspirational novelist—her imagination was creating stories when she was still too young to put pen to paper. Romance is a big part of her novels. Hope is an even larger element of the stories. Rita and her husband reside in Southern California. They have four adorable daughters and seven fantastic grandchildren who fill their lives with love and never a dull moment.  She is a Clinical Christian Counselor, licensed by the National Christian Counselors Association, and certified as a Biblical Christian Counselor by the American Association of Christian Counselors. She has a passion for helping others achieve their most important life goals.
