Beehives: A Suspense Novel by Mary Coley

Jamie is on vacation with Sam and they are going to relax, enjoy each others company, and discuss when and where to get married.  At least that was the plan...

Ms. Coley sent me a copy of this book to read for review (thank you).  I've read all three in this series and have enjoyed them all.  She writes a good solid plot with facts interspersed about the area she sets her mysteries in.  This book is available in both print and ebook form on Amazon.

When Jamie and Sam go on a walk in the woods, they're startled when a woman screams.  When they run to see what's wrong, there's a dead woman on the ground with a tree branch on her.  Since they just had a scare from a falling branch themselves, they think that's what harmed her.  No, she has a head injury that is not consistent with the fall and the branch isn't that big.  Who killed the old woman and why?

Jamie finds that there are secrets here in the woods.  She also learns that her mother was here in the past and someone died then, too.  She begins digging into the past at the library and in park service records.

When they smell smoke in the cabin, she and Sam run outside.  Sam goes back in and never comes out.  She's fearing the worst but the back door to the cabin was open.  He went through the cabin and disappeared.  She's upset because he's not like that and she can't locate him.  Neither can the search teams.  She's afraid he might be hurt or dead and she can't deal with that.  She just found love again...

Happenings in the past are haunting the future and it takes all of Jamie's smarts to locate Sam.  The problem is that the person who came to her aid is the killer...

I enjoyed the history she mixed into the story and the plot was good.  There's lots of suspense that will keep you reading.  Give it a try.  If you want to follow Jamie from the beginning start the first book.  You'll enjoy watching her progress as her life goes on.
