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!
When Lia's childhood best friend Joey moves back to town, his daughter plays matchmaker to help them find their own new beginning.
Lia is a kindergarten teacher who insists all the Smitten Book Club members read Anne of Green Gables. She likes nothing better than a pastoral novel where an outsider finds a special place in an idyllic community.
When her childhood friend Joey moves back to Smitten with his daughter Grace in tow, Lia reaches out to help with Grace as Joey settles in as partner in his brother's dental practice. With a little matchmaking from Grace, Lia and Joey soon discover their friendship has grown into a love that could last a lifetime.
"Charming." —Best-selling author Robin Lee Hatcher of Knit One, Love Two

This novella has so many elements that I love in a story—childhood friends reuniting, kids playing a main role in the story, forgiveness as a major theme! Sigh. As Lia and Joey reconnect, I enjoyed getting to know them and see how their relationship grew out of their friendship as kids. While this was a short story at around 80 pages, it didn't feel short, and I think it has a lot to do with the fact they already knew one another. I also adored Lia's mom and Joey's daughter! Sweet story all the way around. It's hard to choose, but I think this one might be my favorite story in the collection. :) [5 stars] I received a free copy of this book from Thomas Nelson through Litfuse Publicity in exchange for my fair and honest review.
