The Scent of Rain
The Scent of Rain
By Kristin Billerbeck
When deprived of her most prized sense, Daphne discovers a life she never expected, right under her nose.
Daphne Sweeten has left Paris â€“ and a career she loves â€“ in order to marry a man she loves even more. But when he stands her up on their wedding day, Daphneâ€™s left reeling. Trained as a professional â€œnoseâ€ 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, doesnâ€™t notice before she can figure out how to get it back.
Despite her desire to return to Paris, she canâ€™t deny the way Jesse makes her feel. But when Daphne approaches former contacts, she learns her missing ex-fiancÃ© 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.
I just got my new Kindle and I love reading on it. I couldn't put this book down. The story was so engaging that I wanted to find out what happened next. The story was a little predictable but I still really enjoyed it. I like to lose my self in a book that doesn't require a lot of thought, that is exactly what this book is. Love it!

What a horrible thing! Not only to have the man you planned on spending the rest of your life with stand you up at the altar, but to also have the one thing disappear from you that you counted on as a money maker.
Daphne is trained as a perfume creator and without her sense of smell, she can no longer do her job properly. But God has shown her amazing promises and that good can conquer evil- love can win and in Him all things are possible.
This was a lovely read and I think I learned a few things from the characters. Life isnâ€™t always easy, but with God, all things ARE possible.

I really enjoyed learning a little bit about professional noses and the perfume business, but I donâ€™t feel that Scent of Rain is up to Billerbeckâ€™s usual standard. I usually really identify with her female leads, but Daphne fell a little short for me although I found Jesseâ€™s story to be very compelling. Of course this might be because Daphne is so calm about being left at the alter. I would probably be a hysterical mess! Iâ€™m going to chalk it up to personal preference especially since I loved Split Ends and A Billion Reasons Why.

Teddy GAge: 35-44Gender: female2 Stars Out Of 5Intriguing Premise, Disappointing Plot HolesOctober 2, 2012Teddy GAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 2Value: 3Meets Expectations: 2
Daphne Sweeten has been Paris-trained to be a professional "nose," someone who can recognize over 5,000 different scents. Dreaming of a job in the French perfume industry, and with ambitions to create her own fragrances, she instead finds herself left at the altar and heading to Dayton, Ohio to work in a failing household goods department. As if that doesn't seem drastic enough of a change, she now finds herself without the one thing she prides herself on - her sense of smell is completely gone. How will she find herself and her true worth without being able to do what she does best?
The Scent of Rain had an intriguing premise - who are we if we lose our most identifying feature? Daphne had to deal with unexpected turn after unexpected turn, and she couldn't even rely on the self she knew. While I enjoyed the idea of the story, and I cheered for the Daphne who kept trying to make the most of the situation, this book fell a little flat for me. There was the letter from the ex-fiance, Mark, which Daphne never found time to read, and nobody explained to her. Wouldn't it be natural to read it immediately? Or have someone leak the information in it if it's that juicy? It just felt like a plot hole to me.
Also, the relationship between Daphne and her boss, Jesse, didn't ring true. (Possible spoilers here!) While it seemed natural for them to be drawn together, and I actually enjoyed the idea of them falling for each other, it happened too quickly to feel real. There was just no transition between them both saying they needed time, or refusing the idea of the relationship, to being committed to each other.
I liked the idea of the story, and I liked most of the characters, but I really feel this story could have been done better. So, I feel that I can only give this book 2 stars. I have read other books by Kristen Billerbeck and have enjoyed them more, so I can still recommend this author!
I received a copy of this book from Thomas Nelson, in exchange for my honest review.
