This book is told by two narrators years apart - Eva is mainly in the 1920's and Grace is in the 1950's. This is a very light/fluffy mystery. I don't find Tessaro a very skilled writer and she dropped EXTREMELY OBVIOUS clues about everything. She also switched the narrative in the middle of a paragraph.
It definitely didn't flow or entice me into it. Unfortunately, perfume was a very minor part of this book. All of this being said, my bookclub just met last night and they loved it so maybe it was my frame of mind with work being so crazy? Definitely don't go off of just my review :-)
