Review

"What a great addition to an existing series! Death By Chance is a murder mystery wrapped around a lot of humor and a lot of history. Although 16th in the series, this is easily read as a stand alone." - Linda's Book Reviews


FIVE STARS! "Abigail Keam has written a fresh and entertaining story. Abigail's writing style is clever with Google-worthy historical references to the Civil War, reenactment culture, Kentucky agate, beekeeping, and some intriguing. It all comes together well with surprise connections, a shocking turn of events, added peril, and a WOW ending! Definitely a candidate for my Favorite of 2021!" -Kathleen Costa, Kings River Life Magazine


FIVE STARS! "Death By Chance by Abigail Keam is an entertaining sequel in a charming cozy mystery series. Even though this book is the sixteenth installment in a series, it does very well as a standalone. It is a delightful mystery that will charm Agatha Christie's Miss Marple fans, and everyone else who enjoys cozy mysteries starring nosy middle-aged female amateur sleuths who are always one step ahead of the police." -Readers' Favorite


FIVE STARS! "An adrenaline-filled, fun romp. Not to be missed!" -Prairies Book Review


FIVE STARS! "If you like a mature, gutsy, straightforward heroine who has a heart of gold, is a loyal friend, rescues animals and never gives up. Josiah Reynolds is a sleuth you'll love!" Jerri Cachero, Diva's Cozy Mystery Group

About the Author

Abigail Keam is an award-winning and Amazon best-selling author who writes the Josiah Reynolds Mystery Series about a Southern beekeeper turned amateur female sleuth. The Last Chance For Love Series tells of strangers who come from all walks of life to the magical Last Chance Motel in Key Largo and get a second chance at rebuilding their lives, and The Princess Maura Fantasy Series.Award-winning author Abigail Keam writes the Mona Moon Mystery Series--a rags-to-riches 1930s mystery series which includes real people and events into the story line. The series is about a cartographer who is broke and counting her pennies when there is a knock at her door. A lawyer, representing her deceased uncle, announces Mona has inherited her uncle's fortune and a horse farm in the Bluegrass. Mona can't believe it. She is now one of the richest women in the country and in the middle of the Great Depression! One thing Miss Abigail loves to do as an author is to write real people and events into her stories. I am a student of history and love to insert historical information into my mysteries. My goal is to entertain my readers, but if they learn a little something along the way--well, then we are both happy. I certainly learn a lot from my research, and I hope my readers come away with a new appreciation of beekeeping from my Josiah Reynolds Mysteries. --This text refers to the paperback edition.

PASSIONS

Besides loving history, Kentucky bourbon and chocolate, Abigail loves honeybees and for many years made her living by selling honey at a farmers’ market. She is an award-winning beekeeper who has won 16 honey awards at the Kentucky State Fair including the Barbara Horn Award, which is given to beekeepers who rate a perfect 100 in a honey competition.

A strong supporter of farmers' markets and local food economy, Miss Abigail has taken her knowledge of beekeeping to create a fictional beekeeping protagonist, Josiah Reynolds, who solves mysteries in the Bluegrass. While Miss Abigail’s novels are for enjoyment, she discusses the importance of a local sustainable food economy and land management for honeybees and other creatures.

She currently lives on the Kentucky River in a metal house with her husband and various critters. She still has honeybees.

Miss Abigail would love to hear from you!
