Smitten



Four friends devise a plan to turn Smitten, Vermont, into the country's premier romantic getaway-and each finds her own true love along the way.


With Smitten Lumber closing, residents wonder if their town can stay afloat. Then four friends and local business owners-Natalie, Julia, Shelby, and Reese--decide the town is worth saving. How will they do it? They'll turn Smitten into a honeymoon destination!


As Natalie, Julia, Shelby, and Reese work to save the town, each discovers romance in her own life. Meanwhile, the faith of a little child reminds the whole town what it means to have real faith in the God who is the always and forever Love.


Discover a novel written by four of Christian fiction's most popular romance novelists- friends in real life who've drawn an amazing story of four friends! Includes a Reading Group Guide as well as "Conversation over Coffee with the Authors".


"Smitten" is the perfect novel for a hopeless romantic. Written by four talented authors, each took the tale from a different woman's perspective and continued the story where the previous author left off. Readers begin with Natalie and walk with her as she begins the process of transforming Smitten into a lover's destination. The story continues with each of her friends in turn as each woman contributes to the town's transformation and also magically falls in love herself. I enjoyed this book, but did get a litte weary of the predictible way that each woman was certainly going to end up with the man of her dreams by the end of her chapter. However, I expected that going in, with a book entitled "Smitten," that is about making a city into a romantic getaway! All in all, it was a decent book and I enjoyed it.


I received a complimentary copy of "Smitten" through the Thomas Nelson Publisher's Booksneeze blogger program in exchange for a review. I was not required to provide a positive review, and all opinions are my own.
