When he neglected to make their wedding, she was devastated. Now she must endure life in Dayton, Ohio, where she and her missing fiance were suppose to work together, creating household fragance. After being jilted at the altar, she soon realizes she has also lost her sense of smell. How can she keep a job that hired her for her nose, when she has lost it?

Now, he not only has to balance the already tight budget, find something for Daphne and her nose to do, but also come to Daphne’s rescue. The Scent of Rain is a quick engaging read and Billerbeck throws in a few twists to the plot. Of course Jesse and Daphne get it all worked out and live happily ever after.
