With a tight plot, and a strong cast of characters, A BEELINE TO MURDER held my attention and captured my imagination.

I think this is going to be an interesting new series. Abby is a former police officer turned farmer. When Abby finds her friend Chef Jean-Louis dead in his bakery, she can’t believe it is suicide and sets out to prove the police wrong.
~Storeybook Reviews

A Beeline to Murder by Meera Lester was enjoyable from beginning to end. I’m already looking forward to the next book in the series.
~Brooke Blogs

The story is well-written and exciting. The action is nearly constant, but you don’t feel the author is rushing any of the plot points.
~Book Babble

I love cozy mystery genre! I love books set in the countryside, on a farm! I love book with recipe! I love books with animals! I love books where the protagonist is not a detective but she likes to investigate in place of police! How could I not love this book? It ‘s a beautiful and brilliant start to a series.

The writing is smooth and the plot is pretty solid. The flow of the book is nice and even – it’s not too slow nor is it rushed. There is excitement around every corner…

From peacekeeper to beekeeper…

After an injury forced her to leave the police department, Abigail Mackenzie started a second career as a farmer. Raising chickens, harvesting honey from her bee colony, and growing heirloom vegetables on her farmette in the beautiful Bay Area town of Las Flores, Abby has embraced all the benefits of a peaceful life.

But when she attempts to deliver her trademark honey to local pastry chef Jean-Louis Bonheur and finds him dead in his shop, her old investigative instincts kick in. After the coroner rules the death a suicide, the chef’s handsome French-Canadian brother insists on hiring Abby to find out who really killed Jean-Louis.

With the patience of a farmer and the industriousness of a bee, Abby sorts through a swarm of suspects, including the chef’s landlord, his protégé, an eccentric homeless woman, loan sharks, and a brawny biker. 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!
