About the Author

Born and bred in Kentucky, Ms. Keam graduated with Distinction from the University of Kentucky with a degree in Middle Eastern Civilization. She then went into business and kept bees as a hobby.

Retiring in 1999 after a life-threatening asthma attack, Abigail became a full-time beekeeper, launching Abigail’s which makes honey/beeswax-based natural products.

Abigail has won sixteen honey awards at the Kentucky State Fair and is also the first recipient of the Barbara Horn Award, given to those who score a perfect 100 for State Fair Beekeeping entries.

In 2004 Abigail joined a group of fellow beekeepers in a tour of South Africa to study African bees and beekeeping.

Abigail is a member of the Lexington Farmers Market, Bluegrass Beekeepers Association, the Kentucky State Beekeepers Association, National Society of Arts and Letters and the Kentucky Guild of Artists and Craftsmen. She has been a previous member of Women in Agriculture Board and the UK Webb Archaeological Society plus the past president of the Lexington Art League, the Lexington Rape Crisis Center and Friends of the Lexington Farmers’ Market.

She lives in Fayette County on the Kentucky River in a metal house with her husband and various critters. Death By A HoneyBee was her first mystery novel, which won a Gold Medal Award from Reader's Favorite.

Set in Kentucky, this book is an excellent mystery that has a lot of twists and turns to keep you guessing, while at the same time providing a wealth of historical information. The story is told from the viewpoint of the main character, Josiah Reynolds, who is a widow and a beekeeper. When a rival beekeeper is found dead on her property, she is the natural suspect and a nemesis from her past tries to add fuel to the fire to ensure that she takes the blame. Very engaging characters and almost impossible to put down.

Much too gay material. Book should warn readers of gay and lesbian material.

The lead character in any book must be likeable at the very least. Not so in this book. I found not one situation and certainly not one person having any redeemable qualities in this book. Not one! I bought 3 of this authors books on Book Hubs recommendations and I will read the other 2 but I don't think that they will be any different or better. I don't recommend this particular book whatsoever.

Likeable characters, funny too. I also don't like being left in limbo. May read some others

Unfinished. No ending. Will not read another one. The next will probably won't have an ending. Written in first person - I should have stopped on the first "I".

Had to skip to the ending due to boredom, shooting of dog not necessary (did it die?), what happenwd to Matt's partner? Such a waste of time- Christine

This was a mystery that had a very interning twist at the end. Will probably follow the series.

Really enjoyed this story despite the ending being vague. Interesting characters, however, some associations could have been tied together better. Still give it a thumbs up.

Pretty good read. Strong plot and well written characters. I love the negatives reviews about having gay and lesbian type relations and writing. Why so offended? The story was fantastic and I found I couldn't put it down!

It was OK. I prefer books to have a finish to the story and this one seemed to leave some things in limbo. You learn a lot about bee keeping!
