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-fiance 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.

About the Author:

Kristin Billerbeck is the author of numerous Christian novels, hitting the CBA bestseller list and winning the coveted ACFW Book of the Year in 2004 for What a Girl Wants and again in 2006 for With this Ring, I m Confused.

She has a bachelor s degree in advertising from San Jose State University.

From Booklist:

Jilted by her fiancé and left in Ohio with a dumpy house and a job she can no longer perform, perfume creator Daphne Sweeten feels senseless—meaning that she can no longer rely on her sensitive nose to guide her in her work. Her choices now seem terribly limited. Anyone who’s been at a crossroads in life will enjoy Daphne’s curious adventures as she attempts to navigate a new path. Billerbeck (Perfectly Ridiculous, 2012), winner of four American Christian Fiction Writers Book of the Year awards, chronicles Daphne’s attempts to reconstruct her life after everything she believes in and relies on turns out to be false. She doesn’t know why her fiancé left, why her new house is such a wreck, or how to feel about her new boss, Jesse. Daphne feels like God wants her to stay put “for closure and healing,” which becomes her new mantra. Jesse, meanwhile, is busy trying to keep his scent department at Gibraltar Products from failing. Daphne’s nose was supposed to be the key to developing new fragrances for household goods. Something keeps him from firing impaired Daphne, and the two of them become a team, fighting against circumstances and their growing attraction to each other. --Carolyn Richard
