Publication Date:  March 13, 2012
Atria Publishing

A sweeping and suspenseful tale of secrets, intrigue, and lovers separated by time, all connected through the mystical qualities of a perfume created in the days of Cleopatra--and lost for 2,000 years. 
Jac L'Etoile has always been haunted by the past, her memories infused with the exotic scents that she grew up surrounded by as the heir to a storied French perfume company. In order to flee the pain of those remembrances--and of her mother's suicide--she moved to America. Now, fourteen years later she and her brother have inherited the company along with it's financial problems. But when Robbie hints at an earth-shattering discovery in the family archives and then suddenly goes missing--leaving a dead body in his wake--Jac is plunged into a world she thought she'd left behind.

Back in Paris to investigate her brother's disappearance, Jac becomes haunted by the legend the House of L'Etoile has been espousing since 1799. Is there a scent that can unlock the mystery of reincarnation - or is it just another dream infused perfume?

The Book of Lost Fragrances fuses history, passion, and suspense, moving from Cleopatra's Egypt and the terrors of revolutionary France to Tibet's battle with China and the glamour of modern-day Paris. Jac's quest for the ancient perfume someone is willing to kill for becomes the key to understanding her own troubled past.

  1. When I first read about the upcoming publication of this book, I immediately added it to the top of my Wish List. I have read other books about how perfumes are made and mixed. When I lived in France, I came across a couple of historic places that had once been used for perfume making. The history of them and how the essences were found and "brewed" was fascinating. I can certainly understand the fascination of movie stars having a perfume named for them that compliments their natural scent. I'm longing to read THE BOOK OF LOST FRAGRANCES to "absorb" the history and how a mystery is intertwined into the story.

    The upcoming Virtual Book Tour Schedule is not to be missed. Thanks so much for sharing it.
