What a lovely surprise!
I checked out this ebook from my library, thinking it was about what the title implied (I scanned, sue me). The opening endorsements quickly showed that this was not, in fact, about curating bee hives—it was a work of fiction.
Curious, I read on, only to be delighted to discover I had checked out a short story about an aged Sherlock Holmes, trodding through Sussex Downs on his way to commit suicide. It is then that he meets a young Mary Russell, whom I have since learned is the main character in many Laurie King novels.
It’s like a little literary surprise!
Also, apparently I need to plug my phone in.
