He Should Have Told the Bees by Amanda Cox


Uncovering long-held family secrets may sting at first--but the result can be sweeter than honey

Beekeeper Beckett Walsh is living her dream, working alongside her father in their apiary, until his untimely death sends her world into a tailspin. She suddenly finds she must deal with a new part owner of the family business--one who is looking to sell the property. Beck cannot fathom why her father would put her into the position to lose everything they built together.

When Callie Peterson is named in the trust of a man she's never heard of, she's not sure what to do. Her fledgling business has just taken wing and her mother has reentered her life asking for help getting into rehab for her lifelong substance abuse issues, making Callie's financial situation rather . . . precarious. She's sure she has no right to someone else's farm, but the money from the sale could solve her problems and give her the stability she's always craved.
As these two women navigate their present conundrum, they will discover a complex and entangled past full of secrets--and the potential for a brighter future for both of them.

My Review


This is a story that is filled with emotions, of all kinds, and it will tug your heart strings!

The acts of others and how they ultimately affect you, that is shown here and how it has affected generations.

We meet Beckett as she is reeling from the sudden death of her father, and the sudden appearance of a little girl, if we listen to her she is an alien from another country. Beck is trying to explain to the bees that her father is no longer there, and we soon learn a lot about bees, most I never knew!

There is more heartache around the corner for Beck, but it can be a life changer!

Then there is Callie, a girl that more or less brought up herself, and is still taking care of her mother, but you wonder if anything is ever going to help.

What do these women have in common? Well, we are going to find out, and I did guess partially wrong, but the journey for answers is quite bumpy, and sad at times, but in some way we really learn a lot about this family.

There are gifts here to be received and we hope these wounded individuals will received what is offered! You will be page turning for answers!

I received this book through the Publisher Revell, and was not required to give a positive review.
