Secretly Smitten



Summer, fall, winter, spring—Smitten, Vermont, is the place for love . . . and mystery!

There’s a secret in Grandma Rose’s attic—a forgotten set of dog tags belonging to her first love. But David Hutchins was killed in action and never returned to Smitten. How did the dog tags end up in the attic?

The mystery intrigues Rose’s three granddaughters—Tess, Clare, and Zoe—and they decide to investigate, though their mother, Anna, warns against meddling. But as the seasons turn and the mystery unravels, the three young women and their mother encounter some intriguing mystery men of their own. Has a sixty-year-old puzzle sparked something new for this close-knit family of women?

Join popular romance novelists—and real-life BFFs—Colleen Coble, Kristin Billerbeck, Diann Hunt, and Denise Hunter for four delightful intertwined tales of mystery and sweet intrigue.

 Secretly Smitten is just as great as all the previous books with these characters in them. This book was written differently, with each author taking one fourth of the story and focusing it on one of the characters falling in love. There is an additional romantic mystery interwoven throughout the four vignettes. When I completed each vignette I'd find myself feeling disappointed that I wouldn't get to read more about these two main characters. Then I'd remember there's another story starting on the next page. All the characters were in each vignette, but the main characters rotated. I loved trying to guess who the next main female lead would be, and how the authors would find a new leading man. I am also very excited that there is another Smitten novel scheduled to be release in 2014. Keep them coming!
