A Beeline To Murder




"A lady cop turned farmer. . .What fun!" --Joanne Fluke

Ex-cop Abigail Mackenzie has started a second career--as a farmer. Raising chickens, keeping bees, and growing heirloom vegetables on her farmette in the Bay Area, Abby has a peaceful life. Yet trouble just seems to make a beeline for her. . .

When Abby attempts to deliver her artisanal honey to local pastry chef Jean-Louis Bonheur and finds him dead in his shop, her investigative instincts kick in. After the chef's handsome brother insists on hiring Abby to find out who killed Jean-Louis, she must sort through a swarm of suspects. But as she closes in on the truth, she'll need more than her beekeeper suit to protect her from a killer's sting. . .

Includes farming tips and delicious recipes!

"Will leave readers buzzing happily." --Leslie Budewitz

"A triple treat: a California wine country setting, a touch of romance with a handsome Frenchman, and country hints and recipes from the writer's own farmette." --Rhys Bowen

"Beekeeping, organic gardening, pastry ­baking--an engaging debut mystery." --Library Journal
