Guest Post: M J Rose, author of The Collector of Dying Breaths

The Collector of Dying Breaths by MJ RoseI will be publishing my review of The Collector of Dying Breaths by M J Rose tomorrow as part of its Historical Fiction Book Tour, but today M J Rose shares with us the book beginning, a gorgeous antique perfume bottle she’s come across in her research for this series, and one of her favourite quotes.

Book Beginning:

“It is with irony now, forty years later, to think that if I had not been called a murderer on the most frightening night of my life, there might not be any perfume in Paris today. And that scent—to which I gave my all and which gave me all the power and riches I could have hoped for—is at the heart of why now it is I who call myself a murderer.”
