ABOUT THE BOOK
Title: The Bird and the Bees
Author: Neena Gaynor
Publisher: Mantle Rock Publishing
Release Date: April 21, 2020
Genre: Christian Contemporary Romance
When Larkin Maybie buries her mother in the foothills of Appalachia, she is left all alone. Her only inheritance? A crazy aunt, a mountain of debt, and a run-down, secluded cabin left by a mysterious benefactor. While Larkin thinks an escape to a cabin miles from anything familiar might be exactly what she needs, the quick answer to her problems only leaves her with more questions… Questions concerning her true identity.
As Larkin searches for her link to the Lewandowski Estate, she begins to accept the kindness of strangers on Presque Isle and the affection of professional baseball player, Ketch Devine. Charged with caring for the cabin’s honey bees and haunted by past choices, Larkin struggles to move forward in a new direction and is running out of time. With summer and baseball season coming to an end, she must decide: what is the value of true love?
This story had a gentle pacing to it that made me feel the solitude of the cabin that Larkin inherited. It was a story of secrets and guilt and regrets, but also of hope, love, and a finding a relationship with God.
Larkin was full of regret over the bad choices that she made both recently and in the past. I liked seeing the potential for her to get a fresh start with a truly nice guy in Erie. However, the burdens she carried made it hard for her to accept that Ketch would want her if he knew the truth.
And speaking of truth, there were secrets and many questions regarding the past that arose as Larkin began to wonder why she inherited the run down cabin.
I was surprised with how quickly Ketch realized that he was in love with Larkin, however, that does happen sometimes. I had to remind myself of that. But I did really like the dynamic of these two and hoped that Larkin could start making good decisions instead of bad ones!
I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.
