Review: Scent (The Delta Girls #3) by Juliet Madison

Book Blurb

Five extraordinary sisters discover that they each have a unique talent, an extra-sensory perception that enables them to see what others can't. It makes them incredible, it puts them in danger, and it brings them closer to learning the secrets that have haunted them their entire lives. These are the Delta Girls.

Sassy Sasha is having an online interlude with a secret admirer. She’s convinced it’s the gorgeous Taylor Petrenko behind the romantic emails.

There’s little time for love, though. As new developments come to light around their father’s disappearance, the Delta Girls start to question just how well they knew their father. The sisters experience increasingly detailed and troubling sensory predictions that bring fear and uncertainty, weighing them down with the responsibility toward helping those in danger.

Sasha distracts herself with the excitement of newfound romance, refusing to partake in further analysis of the visions. When her sisters cover for her so she can sneak out for a date, her sense of scent becomes heightened and awakens the memory of a vision she shared with her sisters. Sasha realizes a moment too late that she is in danger, and must gather all of her strength if she is to save her own life.


Toot's Review by Stacy Sabala

In the third book of the Delta Girls series, Sasha is having a hard time seeing her father as a criminal. The girls aren’t any closer to finding out what happened to him. They hope the new year reveals more to them. In the meantime Sasha has made some resolutions for the new year. She wants to be with Taylor. She has yet to stop her stalkish ways and it looks as though he is interested in her. He plants a New Year’s kiss on her.

She also meets a cute college guy working the cupcake booth. He is truly intriguing. Sasha also has her past meet her present when the first boy she ever kissed moves to her school. It was a disaster and she doesn’t know how to react to him.

As time goes by the college guy, named Alex, continues to interest her but Taylor is the boy on her radar. In fact she is sure he is her secret admirer. She seems to be drawn to three boys at once. Jordan seems to genuinely care. Taylor is who she has wanted. Alex is older and an exciting mystery.

The girls get visions in the meantime that they believe may be Alex’s sister. They are trying to figure out a way to help her and find answers about their father at the same time.

When Sasha learns who and what the visons are really about, it is almost too late to stop what is going to happen. Her perceptions change as does what she views as important. Her life is never going to be the same.

This series gets better and better. Serena’s story was pretty tame in the danger department which was a nice direction. Then Sasha’s story comes a long and the reader is hit hard. Sasha refuses to deal with anything too deeply emotional which gives her a more shallow or superficial personality. She is presented with three boys and she has to decide what it is she really wants.

The story takes a serious turn that surprises me. I didn’t see that coming. I knew who her secret admirer was the whole time but wasn’t expecting it to end up the way it did. The author really hit how easy it could happen and how innocent Sasha’s actions were.

It really shines a light for readers the extent people can go to get what they want. It was an excellent story and a great addition to the Delta Girls series. I can’t wait to read the next one. I’m interested to see who is up next. This book gets a 4 out of 5.
