I did not like her other book, but this one was really good!

Laurie King has a series of Sherlock Holmes books where King creates a new partner for Holmes. The Beekeeper’s Apprentice is the first in the series. The other book I read earlier, The Game, made more sense now that I read this one.

The Beekeeper’s Apprentice retained much of the characteristics of Sherlock Holmes, Dr. Watson, and Mrs. Hudson. Of course some “artistic liberty” was taken to add to their character for this story. I liked the intrigue and the mystery of the plot. The ending was a bit disappointing, but it was satisfying nevertheless.

Thanks for lending me the book, Kimberly!
