Book description…
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! The book includes a Reading Group Guide as well as "Conversation over Coffee with the Authors".
My thoughts…
When I picked this book up I was excited to spend the afternoon reading these four combined novellas. I have enjoyed reading each of these author’s works so I expected to enjoy this combined effort.  I hate to say it but overall I was disappointed.
The four stories had so many similarities in the plot line that it felt like reading the same thing over and over. I’m not sure exactly what went wrong, but in one of the novellas the character’s personality seemed to change completely from how the other three authors had described her.  Of the four stories I liked two of them, disliked one and enjoyed one.
While I will continue to recommend all four of these writers, it will be their individual efforts and not this piece of work. Please remember that this is only my opinion. Even with my negative thoughts toward this endeavor, I’m still left thinking that Denise Hunter really can write a clean, heart pounding make out scene!

More Smitten books are coming! Denise Hunter, Colleen Coble, and Kristin Billerbeck signing the contract for two more in that series. Diann couldn’t be there that day but she was with them in spirit.
