Summer, fall, winter, spring-Smitten, Vermont, is the place for love . . . and mystery!
There's a secret in Grandma Rose's attic-a forgotten set of dog tags belonging to her first love. But David Hutchins was killed in action and never returned to Smitten. How did the dog tags end up in the attic?
The mystery intrigues Rose's three granddaughters-Tess, Clare, and Zoe-and they decide to investigate, though their mother, Anna, warns against meddling. But as the seasons turn and the mystery unravels, the three young women and their mother encounter some intriguing mystery men of their own. Has a sixty-year-old puzzle sparked something new for this close-knit family of women?
Join popular romance novelists-and real-life BFFs-Colleen Coble, Kristin Billerbeck, Diann Hunt, and Denise Hunter for four delightful intertwined tales of mystery and sweet intrigue.

My Thoughts and Review:
WOW, 4 books in one that is the first thing I LOVE about this book. 4 Short Stories by 4 different authors and each short story is packed full of romance and mystery!
I am a fan of all 4 authors: Colleen Coble, Diann Hunt, Denise Hunter and Kristin Billerback and they each add their own twist to this book! Each of the authors stories have a connection in some manner, but each story also has a different focus. I really LOVE how God's LOVE and mercy is shown in the main characters of each story and how each of the characters grow through the Romance and Mystery that are involved in each story.
I really enjoyed all 4 short stories and found it hard to the put the book down. Secretly Smitten is the sequel to "Smitten" also written by all 4 authors and it is beneficial to read the first book, although it is not necessary. I give this book 4.5 stars!
