Smitten Book Club~ Book Review

What a fun book! This book contains the talent of four authors. There are four different stories written about  the ladies in the Smitten Book Club. They find an old book at a rummage sale that had been written by a lady from three generations back. 

The book contains old-fashioned advice about love and romance. Although the advice was out dated the group was drawn to the book. They begin to pass it around and they never dreamed it would have  such an impact on their lives. Maybe the advice was not so ridiculous after all for it really did seem to work.

I really enjoyed reading the little snippets of the Gentlewoman's Guide To Love And Courtship.
 Here is just one~

"The Men do not appreciate women who are constantly in histrionics. Modulate your emotions, and always speak in a calm tone. " -Pearl Chambers , Gentlewoman's Guide To Love And Courtship

I rate this book 5 stars. This book was provided to me in exchange for my honest review.

A Note From The Publisher~

The century-old Gentlewoman’s Guide to Love and Courtship is no ordinary book club choice. But for the little book club in Smitten, Vermont, it might be their best pick yet!
The thick, leathery tome Heather pulled out of the dusty cardboard box was definitely coming home with her. Not only was The Gentlewoman’s Guide to Love and Courtship an appealing curiosity by virtue of its title; it was also written by Smitten, Vermont native Pearl Chambers, a local gentlewoman from three generations back.
Little did Heather know the repercussions this little curiosity would have on her and her friends’ romantic exploits.
When Heather and her fellow book club members begin passing the book around, their respective interpretations are unleashed on their respective love lives . . . for better or for worse. Is it a mystery? An idealist fantasy? An intimation of Jane Austen? As romantic love finds its way to each woman, the Guide proves itself both surprisingly prescient and hilariously irrelevant.
What’s more, a handwritten inscription indicates that the arcane book might hold the only extant clues leading to buried gold—exactly what one of the members needs to keep her house. How could they not go treasure hunting?
In this remarkable collaborative novel, besties Colleen Coble, Kristin Billerbeck, Denise Hunter, and Diann Hunt tackle the tale of the Gentlewoman’s Guide by writing for one book club member apiece. Smitten Book Club is a hopeful, hilarious story of friendship and healing, written by friends for friends.
