The Beekeeper at Elderflower Grove by Jaimie Admans @be_the_spark @rararesources #20BooksofSummer22 (11/20) #BlogTour #Review

Thanks for stopping by! I’m delighted to be taking part in the blog tour for The Beekeeper at Elderflower Grove by Jaimie Admans and sharing my review today. This is also book eleven of the 20 Books of Summer challenge. With thanks to Rachel at Rachel’s Random Resources for the invite to join the tour. Also thank you to the author and publisher for my copy. First things first let’s take a look at the description for the book…

Her new start is about to bee-gin!

Having moved into her mum’s spare room after a disastrous break-up, Kayleigh Harwood is desperate for a fresh start. When she sees an opening for a new beekeeper at the old manor house at Elderflower Grove she jumps at the chance – despite not knowing a thing about bees…

The abandoned house holds a mystery of its own – the previous owner vanished years ago – and locals have been inventing stories about the manor ever since. Unable to resist the urge to look around, Kayleigh is shocked to find drop-dead-gorgeous gardener Carey living inside!

Carey explains that the house and surrounding land is at risk of being demolished, endangering the bees, and he has been staying there to protect it.

Convinced the secret of the house holds the key to saving Elderflower Grove’s bees, Kayleigh is prepared to do everything she can to help. But is she ready to find her own happy-ever-after too…?

The Beekeeper at Elderflower Grove had a sweet, gentle and heartwarming feel. Along with a few mysteries waiting to be revealed.

I have to admit I was worried at first because of how Kayleigh got the job. I did worry for the bees! However it was very easy to get caught up in everything. Let’s just say there were plenty of moments to make me smile throughout this book. Including a small but fun aspect of the cartoon character T-shirts. I enjoyed seeing each T-shirt along with wondering what the next one would be! I also loved the short and snappy facts about bees at the start of each chapter. These little things really charmed me!

I enjoyed seeing a friendship blossom between Kayleigh and Carey. Plus the hint of chemistry that kept sparking away. Kayleigh was a likeable character especially as her confidence began to grow once more. I was right there with her, willing her to succeed. Carey was a little mysterious but I liked how slowly but surely his personality was revealed. These two characters just clicked and I loved how Jaimie Admans brought these two caring and loveable characters to life.

I have to mention the setting in this book because Elderflower Grove was such a wonderful one. I loved exploring the house and grounds with the characters. Then add in the way the secrets of the house and its inhabitants were revealed and I was hooked. There was something very special and almost magical that really appealed to me. The Beekeeper at Elderflower Grove charmed me, gave me heartwarming feels and most importantly made me smile!
