Smitten Book Club

From the publisher's website:
"Consider that your beau is like a coveted novel whose compelling first lines you’ve just begun to read.” —A Gentlewoman's Guide to Love and Courtship
At a rummage sale, Heather, a member of the Fireside Book Club, discovers a turn-of-the-century romantic advice book written by a once-famous Smitten, Vermont, resident. When she shares the precious volume with her friends in the club, they find clues about a hidden treasure rumored to be buried in their tiny town.
As Heather, Abby, Lia, and Molly take turns reading the book, each projects onto it her own literary tastes. Heather sees it as a mystery. Abby discovers delicious dashes of Jane Austen. Lia sees in it the idealism of a bygone day. And Molly just wishes they'd made the book into a movie!
One by one, each of the women finds romantic love—often in spite of the historic book’s advice. And in searching for the legendary gold, the friends discover the best kind of treasure. The kind that brings hope and healing to each of their hearts."

I had no idea that this book was the third in a series about the fictional town of Smitten, Vermont. I was very surprised by this book. I didn't expect to like it as much as I did, especially being written by four different authors. It is one cohesive story, but the four main characters are each written by one of the authors and have their own sections. I'm not a big fan of romance novels, but this was really a treat. I had a hard time putting the book down. The characters are delightful and it is written very well. I highly recommend it. I recommend it so much that I'm giving away two copies of the books!!
