Weddings are the last thing beekeeper Huck Anderson wants to be associated with, considering his past. So when he inherits a building occupied by a bridal boutique, he aims to evict the failing business and open a sporting goods store. Until his tenant ends up being Arianne Winters, a woman he’s indebted to from a mistake made years ago.
When a life-threatening injury derails Huck entirely, Arianne offers a compromise to keep her boutique, and her life, out of bankruptcy—she’ll aid in his lengthy recovery if he’ll allow her to remain in his building. But nursing her adversary proves challenging when her adolescent crush resurfaces.
Amidst a battle-of-wills, their lives intertwine in unexpected ways, providing opportunity to overcome their pasts and start anew. Will this confirmed bachelor consider holy-matrimony, or will Huck’s choices sting them a second time?
When I finished reading How To Charm a Beekeeper’s Heart, I closed my reader with a contended sigh. This story charmed and delighted me from beginning to the end. Realistic characters, not perfect facsimiles, tugged at my heart with their deep hurts and struggles to realize their dreams, old and new. Little Emma is a sweetheart, and I wished I could pick her up and snuggle her.
The tidbits at the beginning of each chapter offered tantalizing information, appetizers for what was to come. Candice Sue Patterson’s exquisite writing creates a sweet buzz of pleasure in How To Charm a Beekeeper’s Heart. This book earns five stars and is highly recommended.
