The Beekeeper's Daughter by Santa Montefiore

The Beekeeper's DaughterThe Beekeeper's Daughter by Santa Montefiore
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I adore this authors books.
This book was by no exception, Santa Montefiore always delivers a breathtaking read.
This really is a read to snuggle down into. You need to put aside everything for the day and just wallow in this book. Its so easy to get into the story and so easy to read.

Yes its a love story.
Yes it has some unanswered questions from the past.

You can right into the characters. I was upset when Grace's Father died but it was the basis for the next piece of the story. Seeing Grace become Independent although she had at least one person to rely on.

The scene is set in Devon, a wonderful part of the country.

Grace falls for a really unsuitable man. He's a bit wild, unpredictable and has a past.

The Beekeeper's daughter is a remarkable read. Yes, she really does look after bees as its a family business that was handed down from century to century. I'm allergic to the venom so when bees were mentions all the hairs on the back of my neck stood up! I admired Grace!

Would I recommend this? Oh yes I would, and any of this authors books as she has great story telling skills.


I would like to thank Simon and Schuster UK Fiction via Net Galley once again for allowing me to read and review unbiased another one of their superb authors books.
