Book Blog Tour Stop - Secretly Smitten by Colleen Coble, Kristin Billerbeck, Diann Hunt and Denise Hunter

Today, I'm pleased to be a stop on the Book Blog Tour for "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?

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.

"Secretly Smitten" is a collection of four short stories that take place in the fictional town of Smitten,Vermont, a small town with lots of heart and romance.

When a set of dog tags with the name of David Hutchins is found in Tess Thomas's grandmother's attic little did they know that the mystery surrounding the tags lead not only Tess, but her sisters and mothers to finding love as well as answers.
"Secretly Smitten" is written by four different authors and provides readers with four different tales of romance with a dash of mystery thrown in for good measure. Short and sweet, each sister's story flows well into the next one, and with a few twists that really hold a reader's interest and attention. It was fun reading about how each sister get their own happily-ever-after.

This book is the sequel to the four authors' first joint effort, "Smitten," and while it would be helpful having read the first book, readers can still enjoy the adventures and fun in this book with little difficulty.  There is plenty of backstory included and cameo appearances by characters fromt he first book.

If you enjoy reading short stories with lots of personable characters and great tales that flow from one story to the other, along with a sweet romance, sprinkled with a Christian theme, you will love "Secretly Smitten."
