The Queen

9781427251497.jpgThe Beekeeper’s Apprentice by Laurie R. King is the first in the series of Sherlock Holmes and Mary Russell Mysteries. This is the book I should have read first because it establishes the relationship between Holmes and Russell, but either way, I am thoroughly enjoying these books!

In this novel Mary, a teenage orphan, meets Holmes by nearly tripping over him while walking in the countryside. Middle-aged Holmes is retired and a friendship quickly grows between the two as he finds Mary to be unlike anyone he has met previously.

The story is suspenseful and humorous. With my apology for posting these books out of sequence, I encourage my followers who enjoy a good mystery and quality writing to read this!
