Praise for the Queen Bee Mysteries
“Action, adventure, a touch of romance, and a cast of delightful characters...one honey of a tale.”—Lorna Barrett, New York Times bestselling author of the Booktown Mysteries
“Reed’s story is first-rate, her characters appealing—Story’s imperfections make her particularly authentic—and the beekeeping and small-town angles are refreshingly different.”—Richmond Times-Dispatch
“The death of a beekeeper makes for an absolute honey of a read in this engaging and well-written mystery. Story Fischer is a sharp and resilient amateur sleuth, and Hannah Reed sweeps us into her world with skillful and loving detail.”—Cleo Coyle, national bestselling author of the Coffeehouse Mysteries
“Will appeal to readers who like Joanne Fluke and other cozy writers for recipes, the small-town setting, and a sense of community.”—Library Journal

Story is a fun character. If you read the books in the series, you'll find her overcoming her fear of dogs, and moving on from her first marriage and her cheating ex-husband. Overall - you see her grow. She will always have the pesky Police Chief breathing down her back, and realtor Lori will forever try to push her and her bees out of town. (That won't happen for sure!) There's a host of other interesting characters too! The small-town atmosphere, well-drawn characters, and the storyline itself will pull you in for a good read. This is a nice, light-hearted cozy book which makes you smile in many places, and keep you turning the pages! At the end, you're treated to a few recipes like Crescent Cakes and Brides Honey, too!
Lori Spangler, Story's nemesis, has again sold the house next door. The latest occupant of the house is Dyanna, a real-life witch. She is soon followed by her coven, and it's not long before one of their number is found murdered in a corn maze.
This is a fast-paced mystery with plenty of twists and possible suspects, and I didn't guess the murderer until just before the reveal, which is how I like it.
This is a fun series with characters that really grow and develop throughout, which is what keeps me coming back for each installment.
Disclosure: I received a copy of the book from the author in exchange for an honest review. (I had pre-ordered this for my Kindle and was happy to let the sale go through.)
Story is also getting ready for her mothers wedding to Tom. Will she really have to wear the ugly bridesmaid dress her mother picked out?
The story is fun and entertaining with twists, had me guessing till the end. The characters are what make this series so good, they are unforgettable.

It starts with an extraordinary first sentence and never hits a low note.
Story and Hunter (her detective boyfriend) are now living together and he even asks for her help on this case. She even tells him almost everything she find out. There are just some things which in her opinion he doesn't need to know - at least not right away.
The case involves a member of a witch's group who was murdered and found in a corn maze. Story became involved with the witches when they needed someone to fill in to make the required number for a coven. That turned into a funny (but not for Story) scene involving capes, clothes (lack of) and the Chief of Police, Johnny Jay - Story's nemesis from high school.
The mystery is good but its the characters who really make the book. Story's mom who is getting married again and wants her help in planning the wedding even though she still favors Story's sister, Holly. Will she actually have to wear an ugly bridemaid's dress? And Lori Spandle is back and is as mean as ever.
But my favorite is Patti - Story's neighbor and on and off best friend. She's the neighborhood spy complete with a survelliance tower and telescope. And her method of trying to do an exorcism on Story is unlike anything I have ever read before. Patti and Story are an unforgettable and winning combination.
As usual, there's information about bees and also a few bullet points which I enjoy. I wish there had been a little more of Ben, the K-9 dog, but maybe next time.
The other good news - Hannah Reed will be having another series coming out this Fall. I'm really looking forward to it.
