Scent of the Roses delves heavily into hypnotism and psychic endeavor. A reader must suspend disbelief to catch the full flavor of this story. A few loose plot ends never got tied up properly, though they didn't detract noticeably from the effect. A Scent of the Roses roots into the emotional basis of human relationship, despite all the mental barriers we may place against pain and betrayal. I enjoyed this book considerably. Have fun reading!
Scent of the Roses is an incredible read. I fell in love with Ms. Forte's characters from the first page. She's woven a wonderful tale of friendship, love, mystery and magic, which combined, creates an intriguing and captivating story. Definitely worth all five stars.

I loved this book! Ms. Forte has a wonderful way with words and kept me reading into the wee, small hours of the morning. It's great to see engaging characters and a moving storyline from all aspects, friendship, love and mystery, from a new author. Scent of Roses is a must buy in this reader's opinion.
P.G. Forte wrote her first serialized story when she was still in her teens. Documenting her very exciting and (sadly) completely fictitious exploits, the sexy adventure tales were very popular at her oh-so-proper, all girls, Catholic High School, where they helped to liven up otherwise dull classes…even if her teachers didn’t always think so.
The idea for the Oberon series came to her, appropriately enough, while she was enjoying a latte at an outdoor café in the company of friends. She considers Oberon to be a celebration of everything weird, wacky and wonderful about her adopted home state.
These days she inhabits a world that’s only slightly less strange than the ones she creates. Filled with serendipity, coincidence, love at first sight and dreams come true, it also bears a startling and uncanny resemblance to Berkeley, California.
