How Can Family Secrets Both Damage Relationships & Unite People?

Having just finished The Keeper of the Bees by Gene Stratton-Porter last month (great book. Probably a wonderful companion to this one. Rich faith, too!), I am even more excited to read He Should Have Told the Bees. Who doesn't love a surprise inheritance story--especially when part of the surprise is to the one who assumes she's inheriting her father's legacy only to discover she's got to share it--with a stranger! I don't know about you, but that sounds pretty good.

As a beekeeper herself, Amanda Cox brings some experience to the table, which I'm confident will result in a story that will resonate with readers.  Just the story of how she chose this one as her next book is enough to bring a smile to anyone's face.

We also got a hint of what's coming next, so don't miss that.

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 in 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.
