Summary: Smitten is a wonderful romantic book about a small town in Vermont. The proposed closing of the lumber mill has left the residents of the town in shambles as the mill is the main source of employment. Desperate to keep their town alive, four women come up with the idea to turn Smitten into a romantic tourist destination like the Poconos. As these women fight to keep their town alive they face battling with the men who want to keep their “manly” town. Will these ladies be able to get the men to see their vision?
Review: I really enjoyed reading this book and would highly recommend it. Initially, I was a little hesitant to read this book as it was written by four romance authors. I was unsure how the book would flow; however, I was pleasantly surprised. The book flowed really well and was so enjoyable to read. The book is a collection of novellas written about the main four characters: Natalie, Julia, Shelby and Reese. Each woman has her own interesting story. Be sure to check out the back of the book as there are some extras including an interview with the authors, recipes, and exercise tips. If you like this book you may be happy to learn that “Secretly Smitten” will be available in December 2012. Enjoy!
