Review: Beeline to Trouble by Hannah Reed

Beeline to Trouble by Hannah Reed is the fourth book in the “Queen Bee” mystery series. Publisher: Berkley Prime Crime, December 2012


It’s a real buzz-kill when beekeeper Story Fischer gets a visit from her frantic sister. Now she has to help host a combative trio of professional food flavorists. Good thing the well-stocked shelves of Story’s grocery store, the Wild Clover, can provide the morning meal.  During a pre-lunch tour of Story’s hives, however, one of the guests is found dead. Just what Story needs only days after hunky boyfriend, Hunter Wallace, finally decided to move in. As if a dead body isn’t enough to put a damper on romance, Story becomes a prime suspect when the carrot juice she brought with the breakfast fixings is found to contain poison. Now it’s up to Story to comb through the evidence and find the real perpetrator before she ends up getting stung herself.


What a wonderful time I had reading about Story and her family in Moraine, Wisconsin. Story is on the case when both she and her sister becomes the prime suspect in the death of her sister’s guest. With her knack of uncovering clues, Story finds herself in a situation and what a moment that was. This was a great read that I could not put down as I had to know what happens next. The author did a good job in keeping me in suspense with the plot twists throughout this engaging drama. I enjoyed how we got to learn more about Story’s history as well as my one of my favorite characters, Patti. That one surprised me. Boasting a great cast and engaging dialogue, I look forward to more exciting adventures in this pleasantly appealing series. Bonus recipes are included.
