New Release - Smitten Book Club - Coble/Billerbeck/Hunt/Hunter
Smitten Book Club by Colleen Coble, Kristin Billerbeck, Diann Hunt, and Denise Hunter, actually came out a couple of weeks ago, but I thought I would wait until the perfect day to promote it to you. What better day than the one day of the year the town of Smitten was made for, Valentine's day.
An old leathery tome is found in a dusty cardboard box and as soon as Heather sees it she knows it is coming home with her. The Gentlewoman's Guide to Love and Romance is not only appealing it is written by a local woman from generations before.
Little does Heather or her book club know how much this old book will change their lives. Not only does it change their love lives, but it seems to hold the clues to a buried gold. How can the group not go on a treasure hunt together.
Laughter, friends, and romance and then throw in a little hidden gold and what more could you ask for in a book. The Smitten series has been a fun read, with moments of out loud laughter. You can tell this was written by four friends as each story seamlessly blends with the others. Each character has their own voice and yet they all belong together.
I for one hope the Smitten series goes on for a long while yet.
P.S. This review is dedicated to the memory of Diann Hunt. You fought the good fight with great courage. Thank you for all the wonderful time we have spent reading your novels.
