BOOK REVIEW ... "The Beekeeper's Daughter"


cj Sez:  Marvelous descriptions bring the reader into the all-important sense of place, and in The Beekeeper’s Daughter, author Jane Jordan takes readers into the moors of England in the middle 1800s with ease. You know immediately where you are and recognize what you see, hear, and smell. The opening tells you this novel will be a page turner. 

Then the characters are introduced—each is singularly and fully developed along the way. Each characterization brings the reader deeper into the setting and the tale being told. The main characters, Anabel and Jevan, grow up together but grow apart then together again.

Fellow Mystery Thriller Week author Jordan has a great grasp of the thriller concept:  Get your protagonist up a tree and then throw rocks at her.

I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys their thrillers filled with angst, anger, hatred, forbidden love, and betrayal. The pages turn rapidly as each chapter is filled with unexpected twists and turns. When the power of dark arts erupts in a family of witches, the results are unpredictable, fiery, and deadly. Be ready for a surprise ending.

Find The Beekeeper’s Daughter at Amazon and Barnes and Noble.

That’s it for today. You-all guys keep on keeping on, and I’ll try to do the same.
