Book Review - "The Scent of Rain"

Kristin Billerbeck's, "The Scent of Rain," is a well-written, beautiful and fun love story to be enjoyed!

Book Description from the publishers:

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-fiancĂ© 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.

My Review:
Daphne is such a likable character, I liked her immediately and felt like I became a part of her life right away when I began reading. Daphne and Jesse's relationship was fun to read and watch blossom as they worked together professionally and grew together personally as well.  I loved this love story and enjoyed reading about Daphne's job as this is something I had not really thought too much about in regards and it was fun to learn about.  This is a great summery read for all romantic fiction fans!

I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for a honest review.*
