Kristin Billerbeck is back and in The Scent of Rain has her most endearing character yet. Daphne drew me in and made me want to be her best friend (who wouldn't want a friend like her?) This book satisfied the reader in me and left me with misty eyes and a sappy smile at the last page.
Daphne is all prepared for her wedding day and is only missing her groom. She flees the church with her friends, downs some wedding cake, and takes off for her new job, and what was supposed to be her new life, in Dayton, Ohio. It's a long way from home for this California girl, but life must go on and she's got a job, as a professional nose, to do. While reeling from her loss, she discovers it isn't the only thing she's lost and while she doesn't really tell a lie, she doesn't tell the truth either. Her new boss isn't sure what to make of her and he's happy to stay away and keep to his own pain.
So many things interconnect in this book and all of the loose strings come together in the end and I was surprised by several of the twists.
This author just keeps getting better and better!
