A new author for me and the twelfth book in the series. I have been seeing a number of this series and wonder about. It worked quite well as a standalone as I had no trouble collecting with the characters who were developed and descriptions are first-rate. Domestic violence is mention. The method of the killings is unique. I will read this author again. Melissa Craig and her husband Joe have settled in their new home. She is dismay to learn that a neighbor has been stung to death by his bees. There is a second bee stringing of another member of the household. Melissa sets out to find an answer as to why do the bees swarm to an individual. Will she succeed? I highly recommend this book. Disclosure: Thanks to Bookouture for a copy through NetGalley.
