    Nora's Nose Takes her on a Spa Break This is the third Scents and Scentsability book and with each one, this series gets even better. After a traumatic few years, including losing her mom, and her job for a beauty company, then undergoing a hysterectomy during which she flatlines, Nora develops strange side effects when she comes round. She literally, has a nose for solving crimes.

After a traumatic few years, including losing her mom, and her job for a beauty company, then undergoing a hysterectomy during which she flatlines, Nora develops strange side effects when she comes round. She literally, has a nose for solving crimes. When she scents an aroma that is associated with someone's important memory, she inhales and views that memory as though experiencing it. She's ended up helping detective Ezra solve crimes and got herself a young boyfriend to boot. Now about to turn 52, she goes away to a beauty conference with BFFs Gilly and Pippa, partly for fun, and partly for her new beauty spa store featuring her own creations. The spa and hotel setting is great fun for this one, and it gives Nora a chance to face a few old demons from her last job, meet some new characters including Blanche, who adores Nora's soaps and is her number one fan. I would love to see her get her own story. We also meet ex military and now hotel security chief Luke Robson, who Gilly likes the look of, plus Darbie, the owner of a restaurant. Despite yearning for a busman's holiday, Nora's Nose gets her involved in a mystery, the whole conference vibe feels very much like a book con, but with beauty products. As always, the book embraces being a mid-life woman with all its trials and tribulations, a great sense of comedy and a celebration of real womanhood. There's just enough romance and adult time to hit the right level of sexy and cute,without being over the top. Nora is a positive, strong, fun female character and I can't wait for the next book. Wonderful and gloriously fun.

    As usual this series doesn't disappoint!!! Nora and the gang are back together again this time on a girls trip for Nora birthday. If they thought this trip was about them getting some R&R boy were they in for a rude awakening!! Overall this was a enjoyable and entertaining read plenty of mystery, with twist and turn, and lots of laugh out loud moment. Looking forward to seeing what else is in store for this series. As usual my review are voluntarily no monetary compensation was received and the As usual this series doesn't disappoint!!!

Of course running into her nemesis, Carmen, who stole her job with a beauty firm wasn't fun, but they carry on. Running into her ex-boyfriend, Gregory, from years ago who is presenting a new type of therapy wasn't all that much fun. When Gregory's personal assistant is found dead in his new spa invention and it was called accidental food poisoning, Nora has doubts in her mind. Did she have a vision? She and her BFFs decided they should look into the death. Something just didn't add up. And then there is another death. What is happening. With lots of twists and turns and red-herrings leading you down the garden path. This is a fun series with more than one surprise on the end! This can be read as a stand-alone, but I highly recommend this series. I received and ARC from the author but the opinions expressed here are strictly my own.

    The Nose Wins So happy to read another Nora Black book. This character is appealing because she seem to be believable and likable. Her best friends are also a riot. Every woman needs friends like this in their life. The guys in their life are hotties...who wouldn't like one of them too. If you want to read a book about women that are not in their twenties or may be starting over but still have a lot of life int them this pick up this book and enjoy.

    Nora Black is on her way with her BFF's to the Central Midwest Spa Convention to celebrate her birthday for the next four days. Nora is not surprised that Carmen is there representing Belliza she was the one who took her position while standing in the lobby they also see her ex-boyfriend Gregory who is presenting a new product and his assistant Samantha during this time things are happening around her but only in her head.

While getting ice down the hall Nora happens to overhear Gregory and his assistant talking about his display and on the other side of the ice machine wall was something else that didn't have anything to with the other conversation but annoyed her. She met a young woman named Blanche when she was on the elevator who recognized her from her videos and let everyone in the elevator know that she made a great product and wanted to know if she had a display at the convention she was an over the top fan but Nora could tell she was a nice person, she also helped Nora with her registration and her girls VIP badges. It seems Pippa was interested in what Aaron was up to but they weren't sure what she was up but they knew she was crazy in love with Jordy her boyfriend. When they got to one of the rooms they were trying to eat in the only one who was allowed in was Nora because Pippa and Gilly hadn't received their badges yet the guard refused to let Gilly and Pippa in and his manager came over and Gilly knew right away she was interested in him his name was Luke when he said no and they slipped into the employee door to the back they came upon a room but once they stepped inside the room they were shocked. Nora is in trouble and has Gilly call Ezra for assistance. I enjoyed this book and the characters were very interesting, the storyline was very intriguing. I was given an ARC as a gift from Bookfunnel without obligations. I am providing an honest review.

    I have to admit, I'm a big fan of Renee George's books, but being a woman in her 50's (just 10 days from 54) this series makes me smile in a while new way. When Nora talks about things like wishing she hadn't walked up the stairs because of her knees or her back spasms, I can relate more that I would like. But make no mistake, this book and series is not only for "women of a certain age".

Not only does Nora have great friendships with her two besties Gilly and Pippa, she also has a younger man in her life, Erza, who is a detective on the local police force. I love Nora's relationship with Gilly and Pippa, they all support each other in whatever they do. The friendship between the three women are definitely friendship goals. This is book three in the series and Nora, Gilly, and Pippa go out of town for the weekend for a beauty convention and to celebrate Nora's birthday. While there, they find a someone dead. Which of course, Nora's smell-o-vision helps get her involved (interfering) in the investigation. I would buy this book right now, along with the first two books in the series, because I would want to start with the first book. Take it from me, I'm an avid reader, and I know good books! :)

    First: Never a spoiler in my reviews, if you love light paranormal, fun, mystery, with twists and turns, if you love to laugh out loud and enjoy a well-told story that is easy to follow and fun characters that you feel like you know, this is the book for you! Nora is a delightful, in her 50s character who can't seem to do anything without finding some trouble, namely murder! Her ability to see things is triggered by scent and her associations and endeavors to solve the mysteries are nothing shor First: Never a spoiler in my reviews, if you love light paranormal, fun, mystery, with twists and turns, if you love to laugh out loud and enjoy a well-told story that is easy to follow and fun characters that you feel like you know, this is the book for you! Nora is a delightful, in her 50s character who can't seem to do anything without finding some trouble, namely murder! Her ability to see things is triggered by scent and her associations and endeavors to solve the mysteries are nothing short of entertaining. Second: Although this book does just fine as a standalone and you can pick up and follow along right here, you'd be doing yourself a solid to go back and read the others (you'll get a little more backstory). But, that being said, the characters are so well developed and the descriptions so rich, don't feel like you have to, but you'll want to. So, grab your favorite beverage, a place where you won't be interrupted, and dive into this book that is, simply stated, unputdownable! I received an advance copy of this book and this opinion is expressly mine.

Nora's "gift" gets her into as many sticky situations as it helps her out of. I really enjoy this series, I highly recommend it and am so excited to read the next book. Be ready for several surprises in this one!

    Nora along with her two besties are bustin’ out of their rut and charging ahead. Unfortunately, Nora seems to have a nose for trouble. Okay it’s really not like that, but her nose and trouble are always together. It is a good thing that Nora has great friends and her hottie Detective. Nora and her friends are full of sass, life experiences, and great friendship. War of the Noses is a fun read full of this attitude, mystery, and general real life.

What do I mean by that, well read the book, have a laugh or two, and see that midlife is all it is cracked up to be but more. This is the third book in the series, for the best understanding of Nora and her journey, you should read the first two. However you won’t miss it if you read them out of order.

This time Nora is away at a convention/birthday trip with her BFFs, Gilly and Pippa. Once again another murder investigation finds Nora (or does she find them!).. very interesting plot, cast of characters and I love seeing the main characters’ lives unfold even more.

    I do not get disappointed when I step into one of this author's stories. You do not go wrong when you get to read about Nora. She will take you on a suspenseful adventure not that she means too that will keep you entertained. This also includes paranormal with the mystery that fills their time in where they stick their noses. When humor is needed in the way the days are lately this one would fill that need. This also has two lovely ones before it but this can be read by itself. You would want to I do not get disappointed when I step into one of this author's stories.

    Good Mystery I like Nora and her two best friends Pippa and Gilly. They are in their 40's and 50's, single (or widowed), and they are fun. The ladies are going to a convention of various types of beauty practitioners, from spas to make-up to plastic surgery. Unfortunately, their first day there, while trying to sneak into a VIP event, they find a dead woman. The game is afoot! And there are surprises! Great book.

    I laughed so hard at some of the things that happened! I think I will forever remember the phrase, “I wish I could bleach my brain”! I love the real stuff discussed between Nora, Pippa and Gilly about getting older, having kids and raising them. It makes me feel like a part of what’s going on. The murder mystery was awesome. I was just floored with how it all turned out. The extra sensory smell-a-vision is so unique. I love Nora’s super power!

    Conventions are no place for nose investigators. I admit this one was a bit harder to understand because of all the technological beauty devices. They weren't always explained for a common person who knows nothing. Other than that Noras' weekend working birthday celebration was a disaster. Especially, when they discovered another dead body. I swear Nora is a magnet for Dead bodies. So naturally the weekend is spent with Noras' nose.

    Another great mystery This was another great episode in this series! I love these characters and especially the powerful bond the women have. There are also parts of women supporting women rather than the jealousy and craziness that unfortunately women tend to fall back on!!! Another great PWF mystery!

    Midlife has been much more complicated than anticipated with the odd gift of scent triggered visions- a very mixed blessing when you can’t turn it off The latest adventures put a variety of relationships into some tense positions Drama, action, romance, fraught friendships- and a little something extra!

    I have just finished reading the first three books by Renee George (book:War of the Noses: A Paranormal Women's Fiction Novel|53608572]. I am eagerly awaiting the next in this series. I am enchanted by Nora, her besties and her romantic interest. The characters are all well written and three dimensional. I found that I really cared about them and look forward to visiting with them again.

    Loved it! This first book was fun to read and I couldn't put it down. Also, since I'm in my fifties I can say with some certainty, accurate. It was hilarious and had times of high drama. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

    Another hit The things these girls get themselves into. Corporate espionage, murder, and betrayal abound at a beauty convention full of suspects. I love the way the work together to right wrongs and solve mysteries. Nothing like BFF teamwork.
