A Bee in Her Bonnet (The Honeybee Sisters #2) by Jennifer Beckstrand (review by Cathy)



About the book:

Their bees produce the most delectable honey in all of Wisconsin. And the three Christner girls are fondly known as The Honeybee Sisters throughout their peaceful Amish community–where their spirited sweetness is attracting any number of hopeful suitors.

Lively, determined, and independent, Poppy Christner isn’t about to let some vandal keep making mischief on her family’s farm. She’s been outrunning boys and standing up for picked-on children ever since she was a girl–no matter how much her prideful, arrogant schoolmate Luke Bontranger insulted her.

So Poppy certainly doesn’t need his interference now, especially since he’s made it plain he prefers demure, ladylike companions. In fact, if Luke doesn’t stop helping her find the culprit–and growing humble and remorseful–she’ll be forced to notice how handsome his change-of-heart is making him. And that could mean falling in love–maybe for a lifetime…


My review:

This is the second installment of the Honeybee Sisters series and it’s just as delightful as the first book, Sweet as Honey. I am loving Aunt B!  She definitely has a mind of her own and is a bit of a rebel, but in a good way!  Other than her inclination to wear big earrings, color her hair and the occasional tattoo (temporary ones) she is raising the Christner sisters to be fine young Amish ladies. It makes perfect sense once you read the books, which I highly recommend you do.

There is still an unknown mischief maker wreaking havoc on the farm and Poppy is determined to find the culprit. Hilarity ensues as Luke is determined to help her. There’s never a dull moment as Poppy is determined to prove to Luke that she is as capable as he is, even though he’s pretty doubtful.

As a cat lover, I enjoyed the antics of Farrah Fawcett, Billy Idol and Leonard Nimoy, named by Aunt B.

The girls are still baking their delicious treats, working their farm and selling their honey. Everything they do is done with love and so much laughter.

I’m looking forward to the next book in the series and know that it will be just as good as the first two.

I received a copy from Netgalley in exchange for my honest opinion which I have given.
