This Month’s Picks

The Beekeeper’s Promise

Fiona Valpy


Join Abi Howes as she travels to Château Bellevue for the peace of the French countryside, where she soon finds herself drawn into the remarkable story of Eliane Martin, who lived in the Château in 1938 – their stories become entwined, the past mingling with the present, but how does each woman overcome their own challenges?

LJ's thoughts

This is a warm, beautifully written novel with a wonderful sense of place – I loved it!

One of the well-to-do guests has been murdered, so Commander Dalgliesh must solve the mystery quickly and discreetly, whilst nobody can leave the island. The team have hardly begun to unravel the complicated motives of the suspects when there is a second brutal killing…

LJ's thoughts
