Book Review~Secretly Smitten

About Secretly Smitten

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?"

What I thought: Secretly Smitten was a fun book.  It centers around the Thomas family of Smitten, Vermont-an idyllic little town where everyone knows each other.  Each of the four stories are intertwined, yet have their own focus of a different main character. There is a mystery that continues throughout all four stories.  The stories are romantic, fun, and have characters that feel like they could be part of your family.  I really couldn't pick a favorite of the four stories, they were all great.  I want to move to Smitten now!
