December 2015 Book Reminder
I meant to put this up yesterday, but the days just get away from me sometimes! I'm really not prepared for all the fall/winter holidays to be on my doorstep already. Good grief, Charlie Brown!
In that sense, I do apologize that December's book is not a short one, but having read it before, I think you'll find it an enjoyable one. This book was recommended to me by my friend Adinah and it's the first in a series that I really want to get moving on. I've only read this first book so far, but I really enjoyed it. I thought it was a great imagining of Sherlock Holmes in his later years and any doubts I had at first quickly disappeared.
I think I will go ahead and try to read it again, if only so I can jog my memory in time for writing the post about it! (Sarah Beth should enjoy it especially since she shares (shared) a last name with the protagonist!)
The Beekeeper's Apprentice
Synposis: Long retired, Sherlock Holmes quietly pursues his study of honeybee behavior on the Sussex Downs. He never imagines he would encounter anyone whose intellect matched his own, much less an audacious teenage girl with a penchant for detection. Miss Mary Russell becomes Holmes' pupil and quickly hones her talent for deduction, disguises and danger. But when an elusive villain enters the picture, their partnership is put to a real test.
