“Smitten” by Colleen Coble, Kristin Billerbeck, Denise Hunter, & Diann Hunt

Smitten, Vermont, is a logging town with a threatened future when four best friends come up with a solution to save the town:  renovate and Smitten’s reputation into that of a honeymoon paradise.  Not everyone is on board with this plan, however, and each woman faces conflicts of both the practical and romantic kind.

Written collectively by four veteran authors and best friends, this collection is fun and romantic.  The book transitions smoothly from one story to the next, with each featuring a different main character in a different season.  The quirks of the friends render them likeable and friendly, just like the girls next door.  Together, they are generous and faithful, caring and creative.

My only problem with this book was with a subplot from the very first story.  A resolution was never found for an issue that aroused my curiosity, and I would have loved to wrap up this loose end.

Smitten is a wonderful lighthearted read.  I can’t wait for the sequel!

I received a free copy of Smitten from Thomas Nelson in exchange for an honest review.
