About the Book:

Summer, fall, winter, spring-Smitten, Vermont, is the place for love . . . and mystery!

There’s a secret in Grandma Rose’s attic-a forgotten set of dog tags belonging to her first love. But David Hutchins was killed in action and never returned to Smitten. How did the dog tags end up in the attic?

The mystery intrigues Rose’s three granddaughters-Tess, Clare, and Zoe-and they decide to investigate, though their mother, Anna, warns against meddling. But as the seasons turn and the mystery unravels, the three young women and their mother encounter some intriguing mystery men of their own. Has a sixty-year-old puzzle sparked something new for this close-knit family of women?

Join popular romance novelists-and real-life BFFs-Colleen Coble, Kristin Billerbeck, Diann Hunt, and Denise Hunter for four delightful intertwined tales of mystery and sweet intrigue

My Opinion:

What a sweet book. It’s comprised of 4 novellas each bringing together a mismatched couple – I don’t think I’m giving anything away with that statement – from the same family. Running through  the four stories is a running plot that pulls them together.

Each novella is written by a different author yet they stories flow together as if it were a book. Each takes on a season in the fictional Smitten, VT, and a romance blooms for Anna and her three daughters, Zoe, Tess and Clare while they search for clues about Anna’s mother’s lost love.

The stories were light and airy much like a cream puff and I found them quite charming. Smitten sounds like a delightful little town that I think all of us would like to visit but too much sugar is bad for us if you know what I mean. I found myself smiling through the romances and curious ’til the end as to the whys and what/fors of the big mystery. The book is a fun, easy read and I was glad to have been Smitten.
