Book of Lost Fragrances by MJ Rose

This is a review of the Book of Lost Fragrances by MJ Rose. The review will be published on Amazon and on my blog at

Rarely has the book blurb been so far off the track as it is for this book. It makes it sound like an interesting fun book when in reality is a book that makes no sense. I am surprised that Simojn and Schuster would stoop so low.

For one thing, it is not formated properly for the Kindle. Rules of grammar are ignored. Paragraphing is all over the place. I would not recommend anyone spend any money for the knindle edition of this book as the publisher has made it quite clear it can't invest its time, money and effort to make the Kindle edition readable.

The second maion problem with this book is that it has a least 6 different story lines of which only 2 are resolved. The writing is sloppy, the editing worse. The main idea is that the hero and heroine, brother and sister, are trying to recreate a lost but famous fragrance.

In reality, who cares? The reader won't care because the author doesn't care. I feel like this is a first draft that has been published when in reality it needs extensive editing and rewriting to be worth money. I am glad i got it for free on
