A Good Read - "The Beekeepers Ball"
After having spent the last few months on a marathon of old Nora Roberts romance novels, the books that my sister included in the "Christmas" package that I received last month promised to be exciting reads. I decided to start on the Susan Wiggs novel, "The Beekeepers Ball" Bella Vista Chronicles, Book 2 .
This is just a great book. OK, I thought it was going to be a little slow at first - you get used to Nora hopping her characters into bed at the first possible chance - that didn't happen here - although the "dance" was there - a slow romantic waltz, that morphs into a delicious tango as the book goes along.
The side story of Tess & Isabel's grandfather's life in Nazi occupied Denmark is believable and interesting. Wiggs' engaging characters leave you wanting more and hoping there will be another book in the "Bella Vista" Chronicles. I definitely have to find "The Apple Orchard" (Book 1, of course)
Hope you're having a great week!
