Jac L'Etoile has always been haunted by her past, her memories infused with the exotic scents that surrounded her childhood 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. 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 indeed a scent that can unlock the mystery of reincarnation?
"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 an ancient perfume someone is willing to kill for becomes the key to understanding her own troubled past.
