Product description

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.

An interesting read, bit different. Not the normal run of the mill detective story. Worth the time to read if you want an easy read.

Slow and somewhat interesting facts about bees, but stops dead at the end so you have to read the next book.

2.0 out of 5 stars I dislike cliffhangers 28 March 2012
By Sharon - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This would have been a 4-star read for me except for the ending, which turned out to be an absolute classic 'cliff-hanger' which is one of my pet peeves.

I picked up this book because of the KY setting, something I am interested in since I am not a KY native. Book has lots of good qualities, interesting plot, great characters and obviously knowledgeable view of the regional culture and geography.

Someone without my serious personal prejudice against this type of ending will probably like the book. Since I'm still fuming about the incredible cliff-hanger ending, I do not plan to read another in this series as I read for entertainment and the ending spoiled my enjoyment of the entire book.

1.0 out of 5 stars Ending Sucks - Too Much Left Unresolved 17 November 2012
By Customer Guy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed most of this book. HOWEVER, the ending leaves way too many issues unresolved and makes this seem like a teaser for the next book.
The author clearly has no respect for the reader. I will not be reading anything else she writes.
The so-called ending was such a disappointment that I would fear that the next would leave me as disappointed as this one did.

Author: Learn to respect your reader and give them a resolved ending.

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't bother 9 July 2013
By Michelle Yarbrough - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I had some ongoing issues with this book, but was at least able to finish it....though I wished I had not. Talk about a horrible way to end a book...everything is resolved, the killers found, our heroine off the hook, life is good. WRONG! Very confusingly, the story continues, dipping our heroine back into danger, but it was like the author slapped the ending together and tacked it on to keep the story going for the next installment. The last couple of chapters are far fetched and sloppily written. I hate the cliff hanger ending and by that time you could really care less about the characters.

1.0 out of 5 stars I really dislike books without an ending! 10 September 2014
By Mystery Lover - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Sorry to say that the "non-ending" totally infuriates me. I don't understand why author's do this. I feel it is disrespectful to the readers who invest their time and interest in their work only to find out that there is an unresolved cliffhanger at the end.
