THE BEEKEEPER a gripping crime mystery with a dark twist Kindle Edition
Alice Green is a beekeeper in the small Cornish village of Polgarrow. She lives with her pet jackdaw in a beautiful cottage not far from the sea. One evening, Alice finds something strange under the hollyhock bush in her garden. The gruesome discovery will change everyone’s lives. And then Alice’s best friend Milly disappears . . .
Detective Harriet Taylor has just transferred to the area from Edinburgh. As she investigates a series of shocking crimes, she grows close to the old beekeeper and is determined to bring the criminals to justice. But who is really what they seem and who can she trust?
A crime mystery with a touch of black humour. You’ll enjoy this fast-paced and dark unearthing of the secrets of a sleepy Cornish village.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
It kept me intrigued to the end despite solving early in the case, there was still a chance I was wrong and there was also a good chance our heroine would come to a bad end, so I gave it four stars.

Having said that, I liked it. I liked the characters; I felt they were well developed and believable. I’m not at all sure about James and his team and the way he behaved in the evenings was going a tad too far. I think a detective who behaves like that on a regular basis would definitely be heading for trouble. A touch of arrogance I could believe in with someone who always got results. Again, I felt that someone who was as good as James was supposed to be, would not let something as obvious as what Harriet Taylor worked out pass him by.
As for the twist at the end, yes, it was a bit of a twist but again, I’d worked out that Eddie would be involved somewhere. I’m trying very hard to talk about the story but not give spoilers.
All in all, I found that it was not mysterious but it was a good, easy read and I enjoyed it.
