Description:

The owner of a delightful Southern cafe tastes the sharp sting of suspicion in this delectable comfort food mystery . . .

It's fall in Winter Garden, Virginia, and business at Amy Flowers' Down South Cafe has never been better. So when struggling beekeeper Stuart Landon asks Amy to sell some of his honey, she's happy to help. The jars of honey are a sweet success, but their partnership is cut short when Amy discovers Landon's body outside the cafe early one morning. 
As Amy tries to figure out who could possibly have wanted to harm the unassuming beekeeper, she discovers an ever-expanding list of suspects--and they're all buzzing mad. She'll have to use all of her skills--and her Southern charm--to find her way out of this sticky situation...

My Thoughts:

This book follows Amy Flowers as she is featuring selling Stuart Landon's honey.  The honeys of course fly off the shelves and Amy goes back to Stu Landon's for more honey and find Stu upset about a neighbor hurting his bees.  When the following day arrives and Stu arrives at the Down South Cafe Amy can tell something is wrong and she stumbles upon a dead Stu!  Who killed him and why?  Was it because of a grudge held by a previous job?  Who is Stu Landon and why does he seem so mysterious?  Amy is determined to find out what she can!  But will she find herself in a bee's hive?

I like this series and how it brings Amy into learning more about people in Winter Garden.  I also love watching how Amy interacts with friends and family and her boyfriend!  This book leads you on one great ride.  Can't wait to see what is next!
