Book Review: Smitten Book Club by Colleen Coble; Kristin Billerbeck; Diann Hunt & Denise Hunter
The book begins with Heather finding an old book, The Gentlewoman's Guide to Love and Courtship written by Smitten native Pearl Chambers, a few generations ago. . .Heather finds the book while organizing a book sale to benefit fellow book club member, Molly, whose facing some pretty big challenges. Pearl's advice from generations back seems to have some interesting effects on Heather and her friends' romantic exploits. . .and there may be more to Gentlewoman's book then first meets the eye. Are some of the notes in the book clues to find hidden treasure, which could help Molly with some of her problems? That is the mystery the book club ladies seek to find the answer to.
This book was offers the same great romance as the first two Smitten books in the series. . .and if you haven't read those and you want to read this one, it isn't necessary to have read those first to follow this one. This book also flows well from one story to the next--you would never know four authors took part in this project, as their voices blend well together. I enjoyed the mystery. It was a pleasant relaxing read--just what I needed. It had been far too long since I'd read fiction. The back of this book also contains a Reading Group Guide with some questions to discuss with your own book club, if you are a part of one, or you could think about them on your own.
I received this book at no charge after I won it from the Facebook Smitten Book Club party. I was not required to write a positive review.
