Smitten by Colleen Coble, Kristin Billerbeck, Diann Hunt. Denise Hunter

1 book.. 4 stories.. all centered around the town of Smitten, Vermont.  Smitten .. small town America.. reminiscent of a Rockwell painting.. great place to grow up or so you realize once grown and gone and looking back.  The hub that keeps everything afloat is the Mill, so when it closes despair sets in.  How will Smitten survive. What can they do to draw people in and keep their hometown alive?

Romance!  That's what they will do!  4 girlfriends dream up a wonderful to them.. crazy to others idea. Why not capitalize on the name.. Smitten.. and the setting. Smitten is off the beaten path.. untouched in many ways by progress... you can ski on the mountains in winter and on the lakes in summer... it is the perfect spot for a romantic get-away. And so these 4 rouse the townspeople and set out to create a Romance Paradise.

Sadly, none of them have romance happening in their lives... but that is about to change.  

As sweet as the stories are they do contain lessons in letting go of the past, trusting God, surrendering your life to Him, seeing who you are in Him not comparing yourself to others and more.

Another fun read!
