I think that a book, christian or not, should take you on a journey, should let you glimpse into the characters thoughts, should make you feel. If the character eats a horrible cookie, I don't want to be informed of it, I want the description to lead me to the conclusion. If the character melts with a glance, I don't want to be told that, I want the description of the glance to melt me.
Everything happens very fast, all relationships are solved in a turn of the page and the reader is not given so much as a glimpse in to the deeper feelings, struggles and thoughts of the characters. The most this book will give you is something along the lines of "was that hurt she saw in his eyes?", "the pain was deep, he hurt her badly". As I said before, writers should take you to the emotions, feelings and somehow make you feel them too, not simply hand it to you on a platter.
I will say that Reese's story was written better than the others. Denise Hunter elaborated a little more on their feelings, but in the entire book left me lukewarm. This is not a book that will beg you to turn the page because you just have to know what's going to happen. This is not a book that will take you in to the characters head and make you commit to them. It's better than some other christian romances I've read, but it can't hold it's own when compared to great works of romance.
I give it 3 stars.

The story follows four friends, Natalie, Julia, Shelby and Reese, as they work to save their town. The ladies also find love along the way. The book is divided into 4 novellas, one for each character and author. The four stories blend together under the setting of Smitten, VT.
I loved the stories and thing I have found a few new authors to add to my reading collection. The stories of love and faith were beautiful as each women faced her fears as she found love in unexpected places. And the story of a little girls' faith flows though the entire collection.
So if you don't mind predictable stories that have you wanting to bash characters heads together to just see what's right in front of them... then go ahead and read Smitten. These characters all need a dose of sense- to learn to be honest with their feelings and to open their eyes to what is obvious to everyone else. I suppose that could be said for anyone, but it was a particularly annoying lesson to learn here as it is the same theme in each of the four stories. I would have rather read one cohesive story that wove together these characters- in ways that weren't repeats of the matches made before. Reading one after the other like this, especially when the stories are short, they all kind of blend together with not enough to differentiate them.
I would recommend checking this out from the library before you spend the $$ on it... unless you're in the mood for some brainless, sappy fluff to read.

A set of stories about girlfriends, the town they love, and the faith they have that God will see them through. I loved each story.Published 4 months ago by Phone fenatic
A feel-good read from authors I love. My favorite part was how the novellas were a continuation of the same story instead of four different stories with similar themes. Read morePublished 4 months ago by Amazon Customer
