Secretly Smitten by Colleen Coble, Kristin Billerbeck, Denise Hunter and Diann Hunt


I reviewed Smitten by Colleen Coble, Kristin Billerbeck, Diann Hunt, and Denise Hunter last year. It was a collection of stories from four Christian romance writers.  The stories all centered around the small town of Smitten and its residents's desire to make Smitten a popular romance destination.

Secretly Smitten is another collection of stories about this same small town. Tess, her mother, and sisters find some dog tags hidden in her grandmother's closet. When they discover that the dog tags once belonged to her old fiance who supposedly died in the Korean War, they set out to solve the mystery of what really happened.  Along the way, each one finds her own love story.

I loved the first Smitten book, so I was really excited about this one.  It was equally enjoyable.  I love the spunky heroines and charming heroes, and the sweet, happily ever after endings.  The stories are just long enough to get to know the characters but short enough to make for easy reading at one sitting.

There were a few times that the stories seemed a little "sappy" or the characters a little unbelievable.  But mostly, these are just easy to read, sometimes inspiring and sometimes sweet romance tales.

I give this one 4.5 stars and a G rating for content.

I received a free copy of this book for review purposes.  All opinions expressed are entirely my own.
