About Me

My photo
Mysteries, polka dots, California Rolls, TJ Maxx, cozy blankets, rainy days and getting the first spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar make me smile. Spiders, rude people, cold fingers and toes, baby leashes, people that don't wrap their packages before going to the Post Office, poison ivy and Math (pretty much all of it) make me want to scream. My perfect day would be spent with my wonderful husband and sweet girls- watching movies in our jammies! Of course, having the movie theater to ourselves would be great, too. Please pass the popcorn and M&M's.:) I am saved by the grace of God. He is my constant companion and hears my every prayer. What a blessing! I'd love to hear from you!

Smitten Book Club review and giveaway~

My Thoughts:

Smitten Book Club is a cozy collection of 4 romances blended together into one story that features a vintage book with clues to a missing treasure.  It's similar to Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, but rather than sharing a pair of jeans these friends pass along The Gentlewoman's Guide to Love and Courtship.  Heather, Abby, Lia and Molly all have high hopes of uncovering it's secrets.  If they're lucky they'll find love- and perhaps even hidden gold!  I was tickled to bits when asked to review this book as I absolutely loved the other books in the series, Smitten and Secretly Smitten!

I loved all the elements of Smitten Book Club.  Dear friends that gather together weekly for book club meetings, a mystery involving hidden treasure, the charming location of Smitten, Vermont, kind neighbors that truly care about each other, sparkles of humor and, of course, the sizzling romance!  The Smitten series of books are cozy, charming and heartwarming.  They're the kind of stories that make you believe in true love and "happily ever after".  

Colleen Coble, Kristen Billerbeck, Diann Hunt and Denise Hunter have done a lovely job creating Smitten Book Club.  Heather, Abby, Lia and Molly are all lovely, capable young ladies who need to be "rescued". :)   Whether it's by an old flame, a competitor, a library volunteer or a good friend, love is going to find you in Smitten, Vermont!  Add in the mystery of lost treasure and you'll be swept away within the first chapter.  Hoping they come out with a new romantic adventure soon!

Smitten Book Club
The century-old Gentlewoman’s Guide to Love and Courtship is no ordinary book club choice. But for the little book club in Smitten, Vermont, it might be their best pick yet!
The thick, leathery tome Heather pulled out of the dusty cardboard box was definitely coming home with her. Not only was The Gentlewoman’s Guide to Love and Courtship an appealing curiosity by virtue of its title; it was also written by Smitten, Vermont native Pearl Chambers, a local gentlewoman from three generations back.
Little did Heather know the repercussions this little curiosity would have on her and her friends’ romantic exploits.
When Heather and her fellow book club members begin passing the book around, their respective interpretations are unleashed on their respective love lives . . . for better or for worse. Is it a mystery? An idealist fantasy? An intimation of Jane Austen? As romantic love finds its way to each woman, the Guide proves itself both surprisingly prescient and hilariously irrelevant.
What’s more, a handwritten inscription indicates that the arcane book might hold the only extant clues leading to buried gold—exactly what one of the members needs to keep her house. How could they not go treasure hunting?
In this remarkable collaborative novel, besties Colleen Coble, Kristin Billerbeck, Denise Hunter, and Diann Hunt tackle the tale of the Gentlewoman’s Guide by writing for one book club member apiece. Smitten Book Club is a hopeful, hilarious story of friendship and healing, written by friends for friends.
