Book Description

A trigger-happy young detective becomes immersed in a world of bees and mad honey in order to catch a murderer.

Miami homicide detective Elizabeth Stratton knows she's lucky to still have a job, but she's tired of only getting the easy cases. She'll never be able to regain the respect of her colleagues without a chance to prove she's no longer an anxious mess who shoots at anything that moves.

Her opportunity comes during a routine check at a near-abandoned hotel. While trying to save the living, she finds the dead. In the midst of a bee infestation is the body of a young woman, her mouth filled with honey.

Elizabeth is grudgingly allowed to keep the case, which rapidly becomes compelling when the honey is found to be poisonous and the bees follow her home.

But just when she's closing in on the killer, he targets her new friend and Elizabeth must brave the high winds of a category four hurricane to save her.

Once I started this book, I was unable to put it down. It was one of those books that keep you ineterested until the last page. It is a bit morbid, but a really good read. Would like to read another of this authors book.

I thought for a first novel it was quite good and look forward to reading her second. I found it educating in a strange sort of way.

As well as being a first rate detective novel this provides a fascinating insight into the lives of the bees and their keepers to whom we horticulturalists owe a great debt.

Interesting bee facts , not very deep plot could have been fleshed out more. Several loose ends on the way. Would read another if there is a series.
