Smitten Book Club - Coble, Billerbeck, Hunt, Hunter


4 Stars!

ABOUT THE BOOK -
The century-old Gentlewoman’s Guide to Love and Courtship is no ordinary book club choice. But for the little book club in Smitten, Vermont, it might be their best pick yet!
The thick, leathery tome Heather pulled out of the dusty cardboard box was definitely coming home with her. Not only was The Gentlewoman’s Guide to Love and Courtship an appealing curiosity by virtue of its title; it was also written by Smitten, Vermont native Pearl Chambers, a local gentlewoman from three generations back.

Little did Heather know the repercussions this little curiosity would have on her and her friends’ romantic exploits.

When Heather and her fellow book club members begin passing the book around, their respective interpretations are unleashed on their respective love lives . . . for better or for worse. Is it a mystery? An idealist fantasy? An intimation of Jane Austen? As romantic love finds its way to each woman, the Guide proves itself both surprisingly prescient and hilariously irrelevant.

What’s more, a handwritten inscription indicates that the arcane book might hold the only extant clues leading to buried gold—exactly what one of the members needs to keep her house. How could they not go treasure hunting?

MY REVIEW -
Cute and fun, those are the two words that come to mind. Well this book was a given right from the cover, the authors, and right on through!
The cover is gorgeous! One of my faves this year so far.
I am a huge fan of three of these authors, Diann Hunt I had never read before so this was a great way to be introduced to her.
The flow of these stories is really great, the way one leads into the other. I really liked them all. But I think my favorite was the last one by Denise Hunter (I just love her anyway!) its more snarky and chick-lit-ish than the other three.
The characters were perfect with excellent development. I really liked all four of these friends. They all had unique stories in their lives. And they all met the man of their dreams in a different way. Very creative book! This was the only one in the series I read but it really make me wish I had read the others.
