Review of ‘Kissing the Beehive’

Posted on Updated on

Writer Sam Bayer is suffering from writer’s block. His work in progress—isn’t, so, remembering finding a dead woman floating in the Hudson River when he was 15, he decides to return to his hometown, investigate the case, and then write a book about it. Just before beginning his journey, he meets the enigmatic Veronica, a woman of many personalities, some loveable, some frightening, which adds to his angst as he begins to uncover secrets that have lain hidden for decades.

Kissing the Beehive by Jonathan Carroll weaves from start to finish like a river, languid and lazy on the flat terrain; tumultuous and frightening in the narrows, as Sam moves close and closer to the identity of the true killer. You won’t be able to put this book down, and I promise, the ending will knock you for a loop.

I give it five stars.
