Smitten Book Review

Book Review of Smitten
  by Colleen Coble, Kristin Billerbeck, Diann Hunt and Denise Hunter
"Love is on the way."

     This new book is a collaboration of four seasoned Christian authors.  They teamed up to bring you four stories that mesh together in the town of Smitten, Vermont.  The local lumber mill is Smitten is closing its doors and a group of resident women fashion a plan to save their beloved town.  They turn the town into a lovers vacation destination, complete with a spa, cabins with hot tubs, and patisserie.  It's a true love story, as the four main characters find their own paths for love.  On a technical note, this book of dalliance includes: interview with the authors, a reading group or book club guide and recipes from the story. 
   If you are a true romantic, you won't be dismayed.  There are plenty of places that will touch your heart and inspire feelings of warmth.  If you are looking for true character development and in depth story, you will not find it here. Each of the four main characters has only about 100 pages devoted to their narrative.  The story tends to feel hurried to get to the end points.  Some of the sentiments and story line are chambre, with lack of depth.  But, if you are looking for a fun read, I believe you will enjoy this light and diverting pleasure.
