The Beekeeper's Apprentice

by Laurie R. King (read Nov. 2003)
I usually have a list when I go to the library of books recommended either by family and friends or This one caught my eye from the shelf, probably because it had beekeeper in the title and I had recently finished two other books about beekeepers. I can't imagine that I actually set down and read it because the write-up didn't sound that intriguing: A 15-yr-old girl's tutelage and adventures with the retired sleuth, Sherlock Holmes. I mean, really!, who would read that?
I loved it and have since read all 8 books in that series (Mary Russell) and a few other novels by King. I haven't read any of the books in King's Kate Martinelli sereis, however.
