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?

As Daphne and Jesse work on a signature scent for their new line, she feels God at work as never before. And the promise of what’s possible is as fresh as the scent of rain.

    " I thought the idea was interesting. A professional "nose," someone highly trained in scents, who loses her sense of smell. Started out intriguing. Then it was like a boulder rolling down a mountain. Faster and faster and faster and out of control until it abruptly ends. I just didn't feel like it was a coherent believable story, and there were a lot of random odds and ends that were never addressed. "

    " Cute story; I wish the characters had been developed more fully. I received an ARC in exchange for my review on The Christian Manifesto. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lisa | 1/18/2014

    " I wasn't sure I was going to like this story, but I really did. As the story progresses, you see God's Word come to pass in many ways through the characters. "

    " Not too bad all in all. It held my attention and was just the lighthearted read that I needed this week! "

    " Another winner from Kristin Billerbeck! A fun storyline and wonderful characters. "

    " Did not like it. Didn't do anything for me, there was no real climax, and Kristen really disappointed me! "

    " "I'n wearing Monique Lhuillier. Face it, if you're going down in a blaze of glory, this is how you want to be dressed." I love Kristin Billerbeck! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joyce | 11/16/2013

    " Kristen Billerbeck is a quick, fun read. She has a good story with a little romance! Fun book; I will read more of her books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kelly | 11/5/2013

    " Cute, fun story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laura | 9/24/2013

    " An easy, warm fuzzy read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Julie Alvarez | 8/15/2013

    " Liked the book but didn't love it. Kind of slow. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amelie | 6/30/2013

    " liked it for the most part. But it lacked a little in some parts. Felt the book was going by too fast and the plot felt cut off and unfinished. But the humor and the struggles of faith in Daphne were refreshing in their simplicity. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rebecca | 2/15/2013

    " I thought this book was really quite silly. The lead character is such a goofball and the path she goes down to find her sense of smell again is fun to follow. An easy read that makes you feel good because the good guy wins in the end. "
