Summer Listen: The Beekeeper’s Daughter by Santa Montefiore

It’s been a gorgeous summer.  Rainy, but gorgeous.

The heat is starting to rise in Dallas, and school is out.  It’s the season for lemonade, sweet tea, icy rose’, strawberry shortcake and smoky foods from the barbecue.  It’s rather delightful.    It’s also the time that I start to listen to more audiobooks.  I look for stories that transport me to another time, place and locale.

What I’ve loved most is the interplay of the stories of Jasper, Trixie, Rufus, Freddie and Grace.  Listening to a tale is like watching a captivating cross between Granchester and a soap opera set in Cape Cod and the English Countryside.  Lush descriptions, full fleshed out characters that you grow to love and root for.  It’s rather delightful.

Fans of Lucinda Riley, Kate Morton and Susanna Kearsley will be in absolute heaven.
