Things really start turning bizarre when they discover a crumbling wall with the inscription ... Patrick Gallagher loves Mary Jamison, 1954. Most people would go awww... how sweet. Not Jamie, though ... Mary Jamison is her mother.
The past comes crashing into the here and now like a Force 5 Hurricane. Her mother's first boyfriend, who died many years ago ... an elderly lady, a hermit, living in fear, and a supposedly buried treasure.... and bees, lots of bees. What ties them all together? The closer Jamie and Sam get to the truth, the more danger they face.
This is an exceptional addition to this series. I've been lucky to read all three, and they just get better and better. It is very evident that the author loves her state of Oklahoma .. and its rich history. She paints beautiful pictures with her words.
The characters are so complete and they aren't at all without their issues. Jamie has always had problems in communicating with her mother and sister and Sam is a lawyer, so not free to discuss many things with Jamie. The reader is introduced to Stephen, Sam's cousin who has his own secrets to keep. Various secondary characters .. who may or may not have ulterior motives... help keep the book moving at a fast pace.
Many thanks to the author / Wheatmark / NetGalley who furnished a print book and a digital copy in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.
Ms. Coley sent me a copy of this book to read for review (thank you). I've read all three in this series and have enjoyed them all. She writes a good solid plot with facts interspersed about the area she sets her mysteries in. This book is available in both print and ebook form on Amazon.
When Jamie and Sam go on a walk in the woods, they're startled when a woman screams. When they run to see what's wrong, there's a dead woman on the ground with a tree branch on her. Since they just had a scare from a falling branch themselves, they think that's what harmed her. No, she has a head injury that is not consistent with the fall and the branch isn't that big. Who killed the old woman and why?
Jamie finds that there are secrets here in the woods. She also learns that her mother was here in the past and someone died then, too. She begins digging into the past at the library and in park service records.
When they smell smoke in the cabin, she and Sam run outside. Sam goes back in and never comes out. She's fearing the worst but the back door to the cabin was open. He went through the cabin and disappeared. She's upset because he's not like that and she can't locate him. Neither can the search teams. She's afraid he might be hurt or dead and she can't deal with that. She just found love again...
Happenings in the past are haunting the future and it takes all of Jamie's smarts to locate Sam. The problem is that the person who came to her aid is the killer...
I enjoyed the history she mixed into the story and the plot was good. There's lots of suspense that will keep you reading. Give it a try. If you want to follow Jamie from the beginning start the first book. You'll enjoy watching her progress as her life goes on.
trilogy with " Beehives." " Cobwebs" caught my attention from the beginning and now " Beehives " started with a mystery that compels the
reader to continue the journey with Jamie Aldrich. The setting for this suspenseful mystery is a state park in Oklahoma's Green Country.
I am so glad that I discovered Mary Coley's books and recommend them to anyone who loves a good mystery.
BEEHIVES is an exciting mystery which compelled me to read in one sitting, racing from page to page. It's cozy, in that there's no profanity or explicit sensuality. It's also an emotionally deep story, and I'm eager to read earlier books in the series. Author Mary Coley delves into the ramifications of familiar secrecy like very few others; and the totally unexpected plot twists are astounding. I really learned some Oklahoma history too, concerning the Osage, and FDR' s Civilian Conservation Corps. It's a story I won't easily forget.
I reviewed a digital copy generously provided by the author via NetGalley, for review purpose, at no remuneration.
