BOOK REVIEW | SPOTLIGHT ON Sweet As Honey by Jennifer Beckstrand

I know this is book two in the series, but it is (yes, it still is…even after reading all of the others in this wonderful series) my absolute favorite of them all!


First, the designer in me has to mention just how much I LOVE this cover. I also LOVE that the publisher was so smart to keep the theme for all three covers, linking them effortlessly in readers’ minds. Genius!

And like my mother, if I have to choose between a new Jennifer Beckstrand story and sleep — I choose the book — every time!

This story starts off with a bang (almost literally) and it just gets better and better! No surprise there!

Of course, you have to feel for sweet Lily! And, this is one of those times I wanted to jump into the book and tell her what she can’t see because it’s right in front of her, but alas… I cannot.

And then there’s the *ahem* “schoolyard bully” who made fun of Lily—who you have to know, did that because he liked her…

Don’t look at me like that. You know I’m right.

Not the least bit surprised to say that this is another WONDERFUL story by Jennifer Beckstrand, with the comedic writing and colorful characters I love so much from her, a book that will have readers rushing to find book two… and then three!

And yes, I stayed up half the night to finish it. OF COURSE!

More from Kensington about Sweet As Honey:

“Sweet as Honey is a warm, wonderful book filled with delightful characters, humor and tenderness. Jennifer Beckstrand writes lovely stories, sure to touch your heart.”–RaeAnne Thayne, New York Times bestselling author


Smart, kind, and good-hearted, the three Christner girls are affectionately known as The Honeybee Sisters in the beloved Wisconsin Amish community where, under the care of their aunt, they’ve grown into skilled beekeepers–and lovely, sought-after young women. . .

Though she has blossomed into a beauty, Lily Christner doesn’t really believe it. Deep down, she still feels like a lonely, gawky teenager. Maybe that’s why she’s all but promised herself to Paul Glick, the one boy who never teased her in her awkward girlhood–unlike Dan Kanagy, whose creative name-calling left her in tears many a time.

Now he’s back in town after two years away–and being surprisingly sweet, suspiciously attentive–and making Lily unsettlingly yet deliciously nervous. It seems Dan wants Lily’s forgiveness–and her heart. But can he convince her–not to mention her protective schwesters and aendi–that despite the past, her future lies with him?…
