Romance tropes abound in this collection of four pleasant, if bland, novellas. Like a mug of warm milk, it’s wholesome, tasty and filling, but a bit sleep-inducing.

Four members of the Smitten Book Club yearn for romance in their increasingly humdrum lives. Two women each find it with the boy she’s always loved who’s returned home. The third member finds love with the thrill-seeking adventurer who challenges her mousy, cautious nature, and the last with the business rival whose success will spell her financial ruin. (THOMAS NELSON, Jan., 400 pp., $15.99, ISBN: 9781401687168)
