About the book: The century-old Gentlewoman's Guide to Love and Courtship is no ordinary book club choice. But for the little book club in Smitten, Vermont, it might be their best pick yet!
The thick, leathery tome Heather pulled out of the dusty cardboard box was definitely coming home with her. Not only was The Gentlewoman's Guide to Love and Courtship an appealing curiosity by virtue of its title; it was also written by Smitten, Vermont native Pearl Chambers, a local gentlewoman from three generations back.
Little did Heather know the repercussions this little curiosity would have on her and her friends' romantic exploits.
When Heather and her fellow book club members begin passing the book around, their respective interpretations are unleashed on their respective love lives . . . for better or for worse. Is it a mystery? An idealist fantasy? An intimation of Jane Austen? As romantic love finds its way to each woman, the Guide proves itself both surprisingly prescient and hilariously irrelevant.
What's more, a handwritten inscription indicates that the arcane book might hold the only extant clues leading to buried gold---exactly what one of the members needs to keep her house. How could they not go treasure hunting?
In this remarkable collaborative novel, besties Colleen Coble, Kristin Billerbeck, Denise Hunter, and Diann Hunt tackle the tale of the Gentlewoman's Guide by writing for one book club member apiece. Smitten Book Club is a hopeful, hilarious story of friendship and healing, written by friends for friends.

"Smitten Book Club" is the third Smitten book written by these four authors and this was my favorite of the three! The old leather bound book of "The Gentlewoman's Guide to Love and Courtship" was chosen as the book selection for the group's book club and it is one that the ladies will enjoy and interpret in different ways. Heather, Molly, Lia and Abby all have a novella devoted to each of them in this collection and their interpretation of the book is shared as for these ladies this book is filled with tips, mystery and most of all a guide for finding love. Each of the four novellas are enjoyable to read and a sweet love story that is just wonderful to snuggle in and read on these cold, wintery days. I love the quotes that are shared at the beginning of each chapter as these really adds so much and really makes the reader get into the book club choice as well! Now I want to go out and find my own "treasure" book to read in a book club!
