Smitten Book Club Litfuse Book Tour

 About the Book
"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.(Goodreads)
My Review
What a fun read! I have read the previous two books and this one I think could be the best. I like the idea of book clubs and it made this story fun. Not only do the girls meet but they also cook food to go along with their books! So this book, like the two previous is set up as four "stories" yet all of them going together. There is also an ongoing "mystery" that flows throughout the book. My favorite stories were about Abby by Kristin Billerbeck and Molly by Denise Hunter, though all of them are good. Each author has their own wit and personality and I like how that comes across in this book. I also really like the cover on this book, it's a cozy feeling.
The setting is still the lovely Smitten, Vermont which if it was real, I would love to visit. 
If you have read the previous books you will love this one, if Smitten is new to you this is a great read! They don't have to be read in order but it does help the story flow better. 
I recommend to those who want a light fun read.
Stop by the Smitten Website to learn more about the background.
