Secretly Smitten

Secretly Smitten is another book that piqued my interest just from the cover!
Secretly Smitten is four short novels in one. All four are related and go in order. All four are written by four different women. This book was a very fun and light read. A little mystery and a little romance. All authors brought the characters, Tess, Zoe, Clare and Anna to life showcasing their lives and new found loves. Written by four authors, Colleen Coble, Kristen Billerbeck, Diann Hunt and Denise Hunter who are all Best Friends in real life! Each woman tells a different character’s story, but they are all blended together perfectly!!
All four stories center around a pair of dog tags that were found. The women discovered that they belonged to their grandmother’s first love thought to have died in the war. Tess, Zoe and Clare go against their mother’s, Anna, wish to uncover what happened and to try and reunite long lost loves. While doing so each discover a love of their own.
I really enjoyed Secretly Smitten. If you are looking for a light and easy read, give it a try!!
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.

I'm a mother of 2 who likes to get involved in too much! Besides writing here I started a non-profit, I'm on the PTO board, very active in my community and volunteer in the school. I enjoy music, reading, cooking, traveling and spending time with my family. We just adopted our 3rd cat and love them all!
