The Beekeeper at Elderflower Grove
by Jaimie Admans
A delightfully sweet and surprisingly poignant story that will not fail to warm your heart and bring a smile to your face, Jaimie Admans has created a bee-autiful tale of love and forgiveness. I fell in love with the setting of Elderflower Grove, the mystery of Josie (and Guillaume) as well as both Kayleigh and Carey. It took me a few chapters to fully get into the flow of the book, which may well just have been a “me” thing, but once I did I soon found myself thoroughly caught up in this wonderful tale.
The story is very much a plot-driven one, so we didn’t see a huge amount of growth or change from our two protagonists. The story is also told, in the third person, from Kayleigh’s perspective but with enough scenes of Carey for us to also get to know him pretty well. I loved the suggestion of the house having a personality or awareness, though it was very much left open to reader interpretation for those less keen on paranormal aspects.
I am happy to recommend this to anyone looking for a well-written, light-hearted, summer read.

Her new start is about to bee-gin!
Having moved into her mum’s spare room after a disastrous break-up, Kayleigh Harwood is desperate for a fresh start. When she sees an opening for a new beekeeper at Elderflower Grove she jumps at the chance – despite not knowing a thing about bees…
The abandoned manor house holds a mystery of its own – the previous owner vanished years ago – and locals have been inventing stories about the manor ever since. Unable to resist the urge to look around, Kayleigh is shocked to find drop-dead-gorgeous gardener Carey living inside!
Carey explains that the house and surrounding land is at risk of being demolished, endangering the bees, and he has been staying there to protect it.
Convinced the secret of the house holds the key to saving Elderflower Grove’s bees, Kayleigh is prepared to do everything she can to help. But is she ready to find her own happy-ever-after too…?

I love the whole beekeeper angle. I don’t think I’ve ever read a book that incorporated it before. This story sounds so touching. Excellent review!
This book sounds so good! I love all things bees and flowers and honey.. and well just everything about this book. I will have to add it to my list to read this summer!
I don’t read a lot of plot driven books, so I am not sure how I would do with this, but I do find bee stuff fascinating. I read several books featuring beekeeping this year.
What a very summery-vibe book! I tend to have a harder time with plot driven books sometimes! Great review.
This one sounds so good. I’m glad you ended up enjoying it. I wish I had fewer books on my schedule right now b/c I’d pick it up.

I’m always seeing books on blogs that I want to read but the problem is always “when”!
