Secretly Smitten is the second book in the Smitten series, written by the authors in a collaborative process made into 4 novellas. The basic premise of the Smitten series takes place in a town called Smitten, an old logging town that reinvents itself into Vermont's love capital.
These novellas center on 4 women; Anna, and her 3 daughters (Tess, Zoe and Clare.) As they go through the ups and downs of life and finding love they work to solve a mystery about a past romance of Grandma Rose's. Apparently she was engaged to a soldier, thought to be MIA, until one day they discover his dog tags in Grandma's attic. They all go on a wild (and highly entertaining) goose chase to answer their questions.
I liked this book. It is an easy read, but full of fun, comforting stories. It is a little slice of feel-good, knock your socks off romance and adventure. The characters are fun and lively, and the town of Smitten becomes more endearing with each chapter. Well done ladies!
Here is a link of my review of their first book, Smitten. Equally as good, and all about how Smitten came to be a love capital. http://simplychangingchapters.blogspot.ca/2011/12/smitten-by-by-colleen-coble-kristin.html
