Death by a Honeybee (REVIEW)

Death by a Honeybee (A Josiah Reynolds Mystery)

Author:  Abigail Keam
Category: Mystery
Suitable for: Teens+
My Rating: 4 Stars
Format Read for Review: Kindle
Pages: 223

Description: This book is about a mysterious death on the property of a Beekeeper. The beekeeper, Josiah, quickly becomes the prime suspect and must do her own investigation to find out who the real killer is.  

In Short: This is a great mystery novel that keeps you guessing until the end. This book is unique because it has elements of humor, some heart racing action, and even fun little tid-bits from history and interesting facts about bees. If you like mystery novels similar to the Murder She Wrote books you will love this book. This is also a very clean book (the language isn't too graphic and there is no sexual content). So if you prefer your mystery novels a little on the cleaner side you will appreciate this.

Pros: The main character is a very believable, real person. She is a middle-aged southern woman who is just trying to get by and not get framed for murder. The entire cast is well crafted. This book has a great, exciting ending and leaves you wanting to read the next book in the series. I enjoyed the conclusion with the killer and it even made me think about what I would have done in Josiah's shoes.

Cons: There are a few odd things in this book that didn't make a lot of sense. If you over think everything said in the book you can see the errors and get a bit annoyed. That being said I ignored these flaws and still thought it was a great book.

This book is currently free for the Kindle edition on Amazon. Find it here
