The Scent of Rain
By Kristen Billerbeck

Reviewed by Martha Artyomenko

Daphne Sweeten has given up much for love. She left her dream job to marry the man she loves! But when her dreams for happiness and marriage seemed to crumble into dust when she is abandoned at the altar, she feels like everything in life is all wrong! Then something even worse happens…. her nose, her ticket to her job as a professional “nose” fails on her. Nothing tastes good, nothing smells right and she is left trying to figure things out.

Pulling herself up by her bootstraps, or comfortable shoe straps…Daphne heads to her new job in Dayton, Ohio to create fragrances for household products. She hopes to regain her sense of smell before it ruins her life completely.

Jesse Lightner, her new boss, a single parent, is attempting to run a good company. He is overwhelmed at just the prospect of trying to pay a professional nose, let alone dealing with one that can’t do her job right.
Can Jesse and Daphne see past their traumas in their personal life before it messes up their professional lives?

This book dwells a little on how emotional trauma can sometimes affect us physically, and it is sometimes not an easy fix. Daphne is faced with a lot of difficulty in a short amount of time. Daphne was a very likable character, you could really relate to her and her difficulties, while wanting to smash Mark for being such a dirt bag!
The story has many lighthearted moments, which are skillfully mixed along with the heavier topics. This is likely one of the best books I have read by Kristen Billerbeck. I highly recommend it!
