It’s a real buzz-kill when beekeeper Story Fischer gets a visit from her frantic sister. Now she has to help host a combative trio of professional food flavorists. Good thing the well-stocked shelves of Story’s grocery store, the Wild Clover, can provide the morning meal.

During a pre-lunch tour of Story’s hives, however, one of the guests is found dead. Just what Story needs only days after hunky boyfriend, Hunter Wallace, finally decided to move in. As if a dead body isn’t enough to put a damper on romance, Story becomes a prime suspect when the carrot juice she brought with the breakfast fixings is found to contain poison. Now it’s up to Story to comb through the evidence and find the real perpetrator before she ends up getting stung herself...

    Okay Read

    I have been reading the whole series and was a little disapointed with this story line. If you want to check out this author I would recommend that you start with the first book in this series (Buzz Off).

    What a wonderful time I had reading about Story and her family i

    What a wonderful time I had reading about Story and her family in Moraine, Wisconsin. Story is on the case when both she and her sister becomes the prime suspect in the death of her sister's guest. With her knack of uncovering clues, Story finds herself in a situation and what a moment that was. This was a great read that I could not put down as I had to know what happens next. The author did a good job in keeping me in suspense with the plot twists throughout this engaging drama. I enjoyed how we got to learn more about Story's history as well as my one of my favorite characters, Patti. That one surprised me. Boasting a great cast and engaging dialogue, I look forward to more exciting adventures in this pleasantly appealing series. Bonus recipes are included.

    Story's sister Holly needs help. Her husband has invited some of his employees to their house to relax for the weekend. Now she not only has to find ways to entertain them but also feed them. The kitchen in Holly's house is state or the art but it is foreign territory as she can't cook at all. With Story's help they pull off breakfast and then Story takes them on a tour of her hives. They are enjoying themselves until one of the guests drops dead and Story becomes the prime suspect. It seems the carrot juice she served at breakfast contained poison.




    This is the last thing Story needs. Johnny Jay can't stand her and he will try to pin this on her for sure. Plus her hunky boyfriend Hunter just moved into her house with her and a dead body can tend to take away that romantic feeling.  She has no choice but to comb through the clues and close the case herself.







    The Queen Bee of the cozy is back again with another tale that is as sweet as honey! I love it!




    If this fictional town were real it would be about a 45 minute drive from my house. I love the way Wisconsin shines in these stories from our crazy names of our "tongue twisting burgs"




    Oconomowoc (Og-con-uh-ma-walk)
    Waukesha (Walk-ee-shaw)
    Kaukauna (Ka-caw-nah)
    Chenequa (Sha-ni-qua)
    to the beautiful scenery and the caring people. Each and every character is unique, real and believable, even the bad ones.  Pity Party Patty just cracks me up and she was in the middle of it this time. Even with her unusual past, deep down we all have a P.P. Patty in our lives. 




    Hannah Reed writes a smart mystery with the perfect amount of humor set is a place that is a beehive of activity.




    Bee smart and buzz over and pick this one up today. You will Bee thanking me!!! BUZZ! BUZZ! BUZZ!

    Beeline to trouble by Hannah read

    Find out what the Buzz is all about

    Beekeeper Story Fisher works hard at her job and making sure everyone is safe when they are near the bees. Story is helping out her sister Holly for the day with a tour of the bee hives. When a body is found dead , the tour is quickly put on hold. Story becomes a suspect when her carrot juice that she sells is found to have poison in it.

    With Patti hiding out, she is the likely suspect but now told so, and all of the strange things happening in town with Harry, and Effie, Holly gets arrested and Story gets into more trouble that she imagined she would. Johnny Jay is convinced that she killed Nova and is setting out to prove it.

    I urge you to read this series starting with Buzz Off! Not only is it a fun filled series it will also help you to know more about Bees.

    Hannah Reed has done an AMAZING book once again!!!!!!!!

    Beeline To Trouble is the fourth book in the Queen Bee Mystery s

    Beeline To Trouble is the fourth book in the Queen Bee Mystery series. And a honey of a book, too.

    Story Fischer and Hunter Wallace have decided to go ahead and move in together, now just to decide whose house. With this major step much on her mind, Story sister, Holly, shows up to rope Story into helping, well helping isn't quite correct. Holly's husband has three of his flavorists staying at his home and Holly wants Story to handle all the meals for them. As much as she would like to refuse, she can't. The first thing on the schedule, after breakfast, is to visit Story at her home a take a tour of her beehives and packaging area. No sooner than they arrive, Nova Campbell one of the flavorists excuses herself from the other guests. A short time later she is found face down on the bank of the river at the back of Story's property.

    Suspicion really begins to fall on Holly and Story when it is learned that Nova was poisoned by drinking some bottled carrot juice that came from Story's store. But then there are Holly's housekeeper and handyman. The housekeeper seems to be hiding something and the gardener is forever disappearing.

    Then again, there is Patti Dwyre, Story's neighbor and sometime sleuthing helper, whose ex-husband was also married to Nova and makes an appearance in town.

    So it is touch and go for a bit, but the mystery gets solved. And Story and Hunter weather their first sleuthing living under the same roof.

    Johnny Jay, the police chief continues to be a thorn in Story's side and her mom is her old irritable self.

    An enjoyable light and humorous series.
