The Perfume Collector by Kathleen Tessaro is set in 1955 with Grace's journey to find out the truth behind her strange inheritance. The author uses flashbacks to introduce us to Eva and her life in New York, Monte Carlo, Paris and London beginning in the 1920's. So we learn about Eva as Grace uncovers her secrets and figures out how an old perfume shop in Paris has the power to change her life. Beautifully writing by Tessaro, I was totally engaged throughout.
