Reader's Favorite Gold Medal Award 2010


Abigail Keam's riveting mystery debut features a superb sleuth, Josiah Reynolds, whose wit and grit are perfectly suited to the wily turns of the plot. Bluegrass readers will rejoice at a fine, new voice from our region and others will be delighted by the mix of art, rural beauty, and intrigue. Suspenseful, funny, and imaginative, DEATH BY A HONEYBEE is a fantastic read. --Lynn Pruitt, author of Ruby River

Product Description

The Josiah Reynolds series is not just another formulated mystery series. They are not cozy or fuzzy, but they do try to be humorous and witty. Sometimes they succeed. Each novel/novella has a stand-alone mystery, but the stories are also about the continuing life saga of a middle-aged Southern woman as she faces many serious obstacles. Josiah faces the world with sarcastic humor and a number of quirky, oddball friends that can only be found in the Southern town of Lexington, the heart of the Kentucky horse country.

Some mysteries end with a bang, some are not solved at all and the first one ends with a cliff hanger, but they always entertain in the sassy, humorous and suspenseful world as Josiah goes about sleuthing.

The Josiah Reynolds Mystery Series is just like fried chicken . . . finger-licking good! Add some sweet tea and a piece of chocolate pecan pie with a scoop of ice-cream and you got yourself some tasty reading.

Description

Josiah Reynolds is a beekeeper trying to stay financially afloat by selling honey at the Farmers' Market. She finds her world turned upside down when a man is found dead in her beeyard, only to discover that the victim is her nemesis.

The police are calling the brutal death murder and Josiah is the number one suspect! Josiah makes the rounds of quirky characters that can only be found in the lush Bluegrass horse country. Fighting an unknown enemy in the glamorous world of Thoroughbreds, oak-cured bourbon and antebellum mansions, Josiah struggles to uncover the truth in a land that keeps its secrets well.

Death By A HoneyBee is the first of an episodic series and as such ends in a cliff-hanger which is crucial to the rest of the series. Attached to HoneyBee is a bonus chapter from Death By Drowning which continues our heroine's story in linear time. I hope you enjoy reading Death By A HoneyBee as much as I have enjoyed writing it. It was a labor of love.

I thoroughly enjoyed this mystery, written with a tongue in cheek humour, set in the backwoods of Kentucky. If you are expecting action, this is not for you because the villains and heroes are people of the kind you meet every day. It starts a bit slowly but gathers momentum but the ending is a bit tepid (if you compare it to the style of Agatha Christie which the author seems to have emulated). Overall makes good reading without gore and blood all over. By the time I finished the book I learnt all about beekeeping thanks to the author's expert(?) advice liberally sprinkled across the pages.
