This is a fun book that has plenty of fun, a little mystery but in a Nancy Drew way, no one gets hurt and a little romance.
""Consider that your
beau is like a coveted novel whose compelling first lines you've just
begun to read." --A Gentlewoman's Guide to Love and Courtship"
a rummage sale, Heather, a member of the Fireside Book Club, discovers a
turn-of-the-century romantic advice book written by a once-famous
Smitten, Vermont, resident. When she shares the precious volume with her
friends in the club, they find clues about a hidden treasure rumored to
be buried in their tiny town.
As Heather, Abby, Lia, and Molly
take turns reading the book, each projects onto it her own literary
tastes. Heather sees it as a mystery. Abby discovers delicious dashes of
Jane Austen. Lia sees in it the idealism of a bygone day. And Molly
just wishes they'd made the book into a movie!
One by one, each
of the women finds romantic love--often in spite of the historic book's
advice. And in searching for the legendary gold, the friends discover
the best kind of treasure. The kind that brings hope and healing to each
of their hearts.
