Still reeling from the senseless, tragic death of her husband, Tasha Kinsley has decided that a change will be beneficial for her and her young son, Marcus. The home she shared with her late husband has too made memories that are keeping her from moving forward. She and Marcus will be moving into a family cabin that Tasha hopes will be the first step into healing.

After getting settled into their new home, Tasha begins to look for childcare arrangements for Marcus so she can find a job. She is not destitute, but she wants to save most of the life insurance money for Marcus' future, besides having a normal routine for herself. After several failed attempts, Tasha finally finds a loving babysitter.

A misunderstanding leads her to a job that is not only promising for advancement, but has a new boss, Adam Hoskins who is both kind and attractive. Adam is happy to have someone so eager to clean up the huge mess his last receptionist left behind.

Even though there is a mutual attraction, Tasha is very leery of having more than a warm friendship with Adam. She does want to lose her job and sure does not need any more heartbreak. When a family emergency comes up, she must finally decide what her future is going to be.

Dancing In Rainbows is a heartwarming story of second chances and the power of love. Tasha is a strong heroine, who has managed to hold things together despite tragedy. She has built protective devices around her heart, but there is still underlying vulnerability The author does and excellent job with working in secondary characters who portray the love of family that is so important. Adam is a hero who is strong, but patient and not demanding. That makes him all the more engaging and endearing. Marcus will tug at your heartstrings. He has regressed in some of his behavior after his father's death, but he has the resiliency of young children to heal with loving people around to support him. This is a book that will appeal to all romance readers.

Dancing In Rainbows is a debut novel that shows that the author, Ms. Edgar, has a true talent for storytelling. May she have much success in the future. I will be looking forward to her next book.
