9780062252609: The Wedding Bees: A Novel of Honey, Love, and Manners

Sugar Wallace did not believe in love at first sight, but her bees did. . . .

Every spring Sugar Wallace coaxes her sleepy honeybee queen—presently the sixth in a long line of Queen Elizabeths—out of the hive and lets her crawl around a treasured old map. Wherever the queen stops is their next destination, and this year it's New York City.

Sugar sets up her honeybees on the balcony of an East Village walk-up and then––as she's done everywhere since leaving South Carolina––she gets to know her neighbors. She is, after all, a former debutante who believes that manners make the world a better place even if they seem currently lacking in the big city.

Plus, she has a knack for helping people. There's Ruby with her scrapbook of wedding announcements; single mom Lola; reclusive chef Nate; and George, a courtly ex-doorman. They may not know what to make of her bees and her politeness, but they can't deny the magic in her honey.

And then there's Theo, a delightfully kind Scotsman who crosses Sugar's path as soon as she gets into town and is quickly besotted. But love is not on the menu for Sugar. She likes the strong independent woman she's become since leaving the South and there's nothing a charmer like Theo can do to change her mind . . . only her bees can do that.

The Wedding Bees is a novel about finding sweetness where you least expect it and learning to love your way home.

About the Author:

Sarah-Kate Lynch is the author of eight novels and travel editor of New Zealand Woman's Day, New Zealand's bestselling weekly magazine.

Review:

“A sweetly old-fashioned romance with a high feel-good factor . . . The Wedding Bees is a romp of a novel, designed to be read for pure pleasure.” (The New Zealand Herald)

“Clever and humorous, The Wedding Bees is a gentle tale of love, honey, manners and new beginnings. Another charming and witty story in the style the author has made her own.” (Graham Beattie, Beattie's Book Blog)

“A sweet story of love and loss, this is another cracker from one of New Zealand’s most successful novelists . . . Witty, warm and wonderful - this is Sarah Kate Lynch at her best. ” (Kerre Woodham, radio/TV personality and book reviewer)
