One letter will turn newly-married Grace Munroe's life upside down: 'Our firm is handling the estate of the deceased Mrs Eva D'Orsey and it is our duty to inform you that you are named as the chief beneficiary in her will. We request your presence at our offices at your earliest convenience, so that we may go through the details of your inheritance.' There is only one problem. Grace has never heard of Eva D'Orsey. So begins a journey which leads Grace through the streets of Paris and into the seductive world of perfumers and their muses. An abandoned perfume shop on the Left Bank will lead her to unravel the heartbreaking story of her mysterious benefactor, an extraordinary woman who bewitched high society in 1920s New York and Paris.

Grace, 8 februari 2015
En trevlig och underhållande roman om ett par udda öden. Jag tyckte mycket om doft- och parfymtemat, det ger romanen en intressant vinkel. Skön läsning.

A surpyisingly good book, written with finesse and elegance,
Good dialogues, remarkable thoughts and real characters, easy to sympathize with their feelings,
their desires and their decisions.
A wave of perfume and loneliness. Very interesting indeed.

Praise for The Perfume Collector: 'This evocative novel spins you back a few decades to the grace and elegance of the '20s and '50s' GLAMOUR 'A mesmerising novel of passion and scent' - WOMAN AND HOME 'The joy in Tessaro's books, however, is her knack for describing glamour. She leaves readers greedy for satin and lace, for angular cocktail dresses and complex scents spilling from beautiful bottles. It's a voluptuous and desirable world to drop into, but her characters have enough depth and moral ambiguity to lift this above most' EMERALD STREET Praise for The Debutante: 'It's an elegant and glamorous plot ...which means lots of mouth-watering descriptions of decaying stately homes by the sea' Daily Mail 'The latest from the author of bestseller Elegance. New Yorker Cate immerses herself in the mystery of the Mitford-esque 1920's London debutante' Red 'A shoebox filled with mementoes sets artist Cate on a hunt for the truth behind the disappearance of a dazzling 1920's 'it' girl in Kathleen Tessaro's The Debutante' Good Housekeeping 'Tessaro gets her story-weaving wand out with a gloriously rich story of past and present love' InStyle 'Reading The Debutante was the most delicious treat. Engrossing, romantic, wise and witty - the perfect read. I could not put it down' Gillian Greenwood, author of Satisfaction and The Ghost Lover
