Publisher: Thomas Nelson
Pages: 432
Format: ebook
Buy the Book: Amazon  


Goodreads:  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.




Kritters Thoughts:  With four unique christian fiction authors, I was excited about a different type of book where it is one continuous story with each author writing for a certain character.  Although it fell a little short for me, it was a sweet tender story.


Four friends live in a small town in Vermont that is in the midst of crumbling due to a mill closing that has left many of its residents out of work.  The women of the town come up with an idea to recreate their town into a vacation destination.  Each small novella inside of this book is a story about one of the four friends and her contributions to the towns changing scene and their love story with an eligible bachelor in town.  


With barely any conflict and a very sweet story - this book was charming, but didn't hold my attention.  If you are a sweet kind of reader, then you will love this one.


Rating: enjoyable, but didn't leave me wanting more
