Weaving through the decades, from 1920s New York to Monte Carlo, Paris, and London, the story Grace uncovers is that of an extraordinary women who inspired one of Paris's greatest perfumers.

I wasn't seeking out this book but it called my name from the library shelf and I'm glad. This a trek through pre- and post-war England and France and the world of perfume creation (not a topic I'd normally care about!). Tessaro tells the story from different time periods and different characters' perspectives. There's one part of the book where I found this cumbersome but, for the most part, it works well. A good read if you like historical fiction not set way into the past. ( )

I really enjoyed this easy to read book, it has a good storyline with interesting mainly likable character ( )

This novel followed the parallel stories of Eva d'Orsey and Grace Monroe. Having read many other books with similar plot lines, it wasn't too difficult to work out the connection between the two women fairly early on.

Eva's story was interesting and she was a survivor, but I didn't like how the author ended it. Grace. on the other hand, was fairly average and didn't show much potential except at the end when her husband arrived in Paris. I never emotionally connected with either woman and found them both rather uninspiring and flat as main protagonists.

In particular, I struggled with the second-half of the book and was glad to reach the last page. The first half was okay when Eva worked as a maid and Grace received word of her unexpected inheritance from a woman she never knew existed, but the latter half was very mediocre. ( )

I was pleasantly surprised at how good this book was, specifically because of the person that suggested I read it (we're no longer friends). This book was so good. By the end, the words and tone wrapped around me like a hug from a good friend. And there were at least two times I gasped aloud. Such a great read!

This is a lovely, yet predictable novel about a woman who inherits an apartment in Paris from someone she has never met. Grace is living unhappily in England when she discovers the mysterious Eva d'Orsey left her a beautiful apartment and a generous stock portfolio. A richly-detailed work of historical fiction, Tessaro weaves together the duo plotlines of Grace in the 1950s and Eva in the 1920s. Grace unravels the mystery of an abandoned perfume shop as she discovers the truth about her benefactor Eva, which will change her life forever.

Tessaro dazzles the senses in this novel ... Nuanced observations soften the blow of the contrived banter, familiar form, and one particularly overindulgent shopping-day passage
