The Scent of Rain
By Kristin Billerbeck
Published by Thomas Nelson
This is an awesome read, I really enjoyed reading this. It gives great insight into the characters emotions and it helps you get a feel for them as well as sympathize with them. This is a good clean book, and has some romance in it as well. I would recommend this book to any who love to read and even has a small mystery in it. She has also made her own cologne for men, that she is going to try and market.
This book is mostly about Daphne who has lost her sense of smell and has a new job that relies on that sense. She believes it is caused by the stress of being left at the alter by Mark. It also talks of her ex-fiance Mark and her new boss Jesse, plus her former almost boss Arnaud.
Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from Thomas Nelson publishers as part of their book review bloggers program. All opinions expressed are my own, and I was not required to write a positive review.
When deprived of her most prized sense, Daphne discovers a life she never expected, right under her nose.
Daphne Sweeten has left Paris – and a career she loves – in order to marry a man she loves even more. But when he stands her up on their wedding day, Daphne’s left reeling. Trained as a professional “nose” or perfume creator, Daphne soon realizes that her sense of smell has somehow disappeared too.
In the days following she moves to Dayton, Ohio, to take on a job creating fragrances for household products. Without her sense of smell, she must rely on her chemistry skills, and hope her handsome new boss, Jesse Lightner, doesn’t notice before she can figure out how to get it back.
Despite her desire to return to Paris, she can’t deny the way Jesse makes her feel. But when Daphne approaches former contacts, she learns her missing ex-fiancé has somehow snagged her old job.
As Daphne and Jesse work on a signature scent for their new line, she feels God at work in her life as never before. And the promise of what is possible is as fresh as the scent of rain.
