Leaving behind her twin sister Jen and her small town in Michigan, Del is in Paris to realise her dream: taking part in an international competition organised by the world-famous Leclere Parfumerie. This competition will give her the chance to finally open a perfume shop in New York as she has always dreamed. But she will have to go up against competitors from all around the world, some of whom are ready to do anything to win. Also, Del will have to deal with her feelings for the owner of Leclere Parfumerie, the handsome Sebastien.
What I loved most about this novel is the setting - nothing beats Paris when it comes to romance – and the characters, especially Del who is good, loyal and funny. The ending wasn’t predictable as I thought and I was surprised but happy to read about Del’s choices for her life. The novel is not too long and is captivating and engaging. (NP)
