Book Review: He should have told the bees

Hey, did I mention I started a podcast called Knives and Roses with a fellow author, A.D. Lawrence? No? Well, I meant to. I actually reviewed this book on last week's episode. So keep reading for a few thoughts from me about the book and listen to my discussion of it with Amy. Click here for our podcast.

Pros: Super clean, great plot and writing, characters you'll want to love.

Cons: More cozy romantic suspense than suspense, murder, and mayhem.

My Review: 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

My Thoughts:

I've read (and reviewed) another of Amanda's books, The Secret Keepers of Old Depot Grocery last year. She's a great writer, and I'd heard wonderful things about He Should Have Told the Bees. When the audio book went on sale, I jumped on it.

Here are the basics:

Beekeeper Beckett Walsh is living her dream, working alongside her father in their apiary, until his untimely death sends her world into a tailspin. She suddenly finds she must deal with a new part owner of the family business–one who is looking to sell the property. Beck cannot fathom why her father would put her into the position to lose everything they built together.

When Callie Peterson is named in the trust of a man she’s never heard of, she’s not sure what to do. Her fledgling business has just taken wing and her mother has reentered her life asking for help getting into rehab for her lifelong substance abuse issues, making Callie’s financial situation rather . . . precarious. She’s sure she has no right to someone else’s farm, but the money from the sale could solve her problems and give her the stability she’s always craved.

I guess about the relationship between Beckett and Callie pretty early, but putting together exactly what happened took a little more time. Amanda beautifully weaves together their two lives, their relationship to one another, and their relationships to two very interesting men.

As much as I enjoyed Beckett and Callie, Katya Amadeus Cimmaron of the Vesper Galaxy steals the show. She's an outgoing young girl who's struggling to put her own world back together when she's not sure she understands what's really happening. And Beckett can so relate.

Grab this book and if you haven't read Amanda's The Secret Keepers of Old Depot Grocery get that one too. You won't regret it!
