Murder Makes Scents kicks off in Paris (how fun!) Candlemaker and scent enthusiast Stella is attending a conference with her globe-trotting perfumer mother, Millie. Their trip ends on a sour note when a man is murdered on the last day of the conference (right before Millie is due to give her talk).
When they return to Nantucket, they quickly realize that someone involved in the murder in Paris has followed them, and their lives could be in danger. Has Millie stolen a top-secret perfume vial? Will Stella be able to figure out the mystery before it’s too late?
This was surprisingly elaborate for a cozy – and so fun to read! I loved Stella’s shop, the Wick & Flame, and Nantucket is the perfect setting for a book in this genre. It’s a relatively new series (I have book one on my tbr shelf!) and offers up exactly what you love and expect from a cozy.
Thank you Kensington Books for the ARC!
