Spring, summer, fall, and winter, Smitten is a place for love . . . and mystery.
But master gardener Clare Thomas is about to dig up something surprising.
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 town. How did the dog tags end up in the Grandma’s attic? It’s a romantic mystery fit for a town like Smitten, Vermont, which has been working hard to reinvent itself as a destination for lovers. Rose’s three granddaughters are determined to investigate, though their mother Anna has reservations about digging up the past. But will they get distracted by mystery men of their own before they solve the puzzle of the dogtags?
In Love Blooms, Clare is really, really tired of being called predictable, which is why she decides to gives a job at her nursery to the scruffy vagabond on a motorcycle. Is trusting her instincts the most foolish thing she’s ever done . . . or the smartest?
Excerpted from Secretly Smitten, a novel in four parts written by Inspirational fiction’s most popular romance novelists—and real life BFFs!
