(I received this book for an honest review)
Goodreads Rating: 3.88/5

Publication Date: March 31st, 2016
Publisher: Scent of the Past
Genre: Historical Fiction
Plot: A secret diary. A forgotten past. Another time. Close cousins Addison and Elissa live in present day New York City and lead somewhat ordinary lives. When uncertain circumstances surrounding a set of antique perfume bottles sends them back to eighteenth-century France, they must uncover the truth behind their travel. Disaster strikes when Addison finds herself in a nearly identical situation to a mishap she experienced in the present-the witnessing of a murder and release of a secret. Only this time the truth could destroy the entire French monarchy. With Addison’s head on the line, the young women search for answers before Addison suffers her unlucky fate twice. It is only when they discover the haunting connections to life in the present, that they understand why they both were sent, and why a repeating past…may not always be such a bad thing.

This novel was quite a different read for me, I’m not very used to reading time travel novels.
Despite that, I enjoyed this novel.
It was nice to see the bond between the two cousins that this book followed followed, and to see all the adventures they took part in.
I think Bernardo describe the setting very beautifully, and it made the book a lot more easier to get through. Additionally, it is easy to see all the work you put into researching the setting of this book.
There is some romance, but it wasn’t too overwhelming because of all of the time travel adventures that occurred.
I thought this book was a really fun read, and I really enjoyed being able to take a trip to the past for a while.
That concludes my review for The Scent of the Past by Erin Marie Bernardo.
