Knocked Scentless by Langley Gray
Published: August 23, 2021
I received a copy of this book for free, and I leave my review voluntarily.
Langley Gray traveled around the world and was lucky enough to marry her own leading man. Three kids and a house in the suburbs later, she decided to add some adventure back into #thatminivanlife by pursuing her dream of writing fiction.
“What delicate secrets these quaint little towns could hold.”
Nati has dreams of bringing her signature scent to life in her very own little shop. She acquired the space, but the formula still needs some work. When a tragedy strikes and Nati finds herself in the hot seat, she realizes it’s going to take more than her nose to find out just who is behind the murder of ornery Joe Mallory.
Oh, my heart. This was such a fun, light, unique, charming story! The premise is so fun, and I loved the characters. Nati is determined to find her success, and she refuses to accept anything less. I loved getting to know her.
This little town was beyond adorable, as were the cast of characters. Langley has such a talent for creating characters that you fall in love with. Hands down, my favorite character was Sal, obviously, but Owen was quite fantastic. I enjoyed watching Own and Nati sweetly find their way to each other.
This was such a fun mystery. I enjoyed the setup and the pacing. I also enjoyed the research that went into creating perfume and how that was woven throughout the story in all aspects. The way scents are described, you can almost smell them.
I cannot wait for the next book in this new series. With a charming leading lady, a hunky leading man, and a spunky four-legged sidekick, how can this book be anything but amazing? Another absolute smash from Langley Gray.
