Book Review - "Smitten"
Colleen Coble, Kristin Billerbeck, Denise Hunter, and Diann Hunt, four wonderful authors, have joined together to write a great collection of stories in "Smitten." Each of the four authors write a novella and each novella is about a different woman, yet they are all connected!
Smitten, Vermont is a town that is kept afloat by the lumber mill that hires so many people living in the town. Julia, Natalie, Shelby and Reese, four friends, devise a plan to "save" their town when the lumber mill is closing. They do not want their town to "close" or die along with the lumber mill. The four friends decide that their town, Smitten, is the perfect romantic getaway spot and begin to work on this idea and saving the town. Not everyone is thrilled with the idea, including the men in the town and yet some of the men join them on the project as well. Not only are these women promoting the town as a romantic spot for tourists, but they find that it may be a romantic spot for them as well.
I really enjoyed this book - all four stories! Each author writes from a different woman's perspective and shares her story, yet they are all joined together to create a great story! There is humor interspersed and the misunderstandings and love make for a great read! A great light-hearted read!
