"The Beekeeper's Apprentice"
by: Laurie R. King.
1994; 448 pages,
I picked this book up off one of those take-a-book, leave-a-book shelves. There was something in the title that spoke to me.
I glad I did. I made a good trade.
"The Beekeeper's Apprentice" is about a woman named Mary who is trained by Sherlock Holmes himself to become England's next greatest detective.
The two are involved in many adventures together.
I loved the blend of Sherlock Holmes into the story. He moved seamlessly in. The writing is fantastic, and the story is fun, engaging, and intriguing.
If you're at all a fan of mystery, or Sherlock Holmes (or both), then I highly recommend "The Beekeeper's Apprentice". It's fun, and fresh.
I hope my next book trade is as good as this one was. (The book I left on the shelf was "Reading Lolita in Tehran".)
