I’ve always enjoyed meeting honey bees in books and while I was reading Queen Bee it reminded me of ones I had read and enjoyed that included those amazing bees. So four I’d certainly put on my reread list and one that’s gone onto my TBR.
What a delightful book this was, I devoured it in a couple of days. I loved all the bee facts and the love and care that their keeper Holly had for them. Of course they loved Holly too. Loved the two boys over the way that provided so much of the “feel” of the book. How come their Dad was so dense! Full of quirky characters and humour.
I loved this book and really liked the story. Plus of course an apple orchard and honey and great cooking. I feel the need for a reread of these books. This is the second in the series.
What a honey of a book. I was originally enticed into this book by the US edition with its warm tones, however as I read the book I came to love this cover too. Sugar is a treasure and the amazing ‘family’ of people she gathered around her was endearing and satisfying. As it says on the cover – a novel of honey, love and manners.
It’s been ten years since Georgia left her family home on the coast of Florida, and nothing much has changed, except that there are fewer oysters and more tourists. She finds solace seeing her grandfather still toiling away in the apiary where she spent much of her childhood. I’d forgotten this book had bees in it. Another book to reread!
And this one I haven’t read – yet! But I’ ve put it on my TBR. It includes France, and old chateau, beekeeping and a story from WW11.
