Good plot twists and thought processes

Death by a Honey Bee

Good read, full of interesting characters, lots of info about bee keeping, a compelling murder mystery and intelligently written. Not sure if it's a 3 or a 4 but vastly better written and entertaining than most of what I find online these days. I recommend it for just about anyone who likes a good mystery. Certainly, it will appeal to women who enjoy a clever, intelligent and nonconformist heroine.
