Murder Makes Scents by Christin Brecher- Great Escapes Tour

About the book
Stella Wright loves creating candles at her Nantucket store—and she also has a burning passion for justice. Now, after visiting a perfume conference, she must solve a vial crime . . .
Stella and her globe-trotting mom, Millie, have come home from a perfume industry conference in Paris, where their trip was marred by witnessing the stabbing death of a young man. It’s a relief for Stella to be back on her picturesque island, with the comforting company of her cat, Tinker. But lingering danger may have followed them back across the ocean.
After someone breaks into her candle store, the Wick & Flame, Stella starts feeling spooked. And just as things threaten to ignite, Millie suffers a blow to the head. Stella receives an anonymous note claiming that her mother smuggled a secret formula out of France—and threatening her life if it isn’t returned. Now Stella’s picked up the scent of a cold-hearted criminal and an intriguing puzzle, and things are about to get wicked . . .
And I thought
What a great read. Stella and Millie are a delightful and charming mother/daughter team.
I have to admit the plot around an amateur  sleuth/candle shop owner really didn't immediately have my interest but author Christen Beecher lured me.

Murder Makes Scents  is filled with some fun and quirky characters. The friends and family of main character Stella (I loved her name) are her 'tribe' and her
     when things get dicey while she helps a secret agent thwart a ploy to wreck havoc.  

Stella is cunning and undeterred as she searches for tan illusive unidentified spy,  At least he's unidentified until Stella ferrets him out saves  the day for a small country.

Murder Makes Scents is book 2 in the series but it is written as a stand alone.  (Book 1 is on my TBR list!)  It is a fast paced mystery with lots of suspects and lots of fun characters.  

If you enjoy a good cozy check this one out.
