Review: the Scent of Rain

Daphne Sweeten left Paris―and a job she loved―to marry the man of her dreams in the U.S. But when he stands her up on their wedding day, she’s left reeling and senseless. Literally. She’s been trained as a perfume creator and now her sense of smell has disappeared along with her fiancé.

She has to figure out why her nose isn’t working, fix it, and get back to Paris. Meanwhile, she’ll rely on her chemistry skills and just hope her new boss at Gibraltar Products, Jesse, doesn’t notice her failing senses. They’ll be working together on household fragrances, not posh perfumes. How hard can it be?

For those who love Kristin Billerbeck’s chick-lit (I adored the Ashley Stockingdale series), you might think this book will be similar. It’s good – just different. There are deeper themes, and full realization of the flawed nature of humans. We’re all broken and trying to find our way. This book plumbs the depths of that within the guise of a perfume smelling woman who is broken when life lets her down. Many of us will relate to that theme. If you’re looking for a quick, light read, then this book is perfect.
