Sugar Wallace did not believe in love at first sight, but her bees did. . . .

Every spring Sugar Wallace coaxes her sleepy honeybee queen—presently the sixth in a long line of Queen Elizabeths—out of the hive and lets her crawl around a treasured old map. Wherever the queen stops is their next destination, and this year it’s New York City.

Sugar sets up her honeybees on the balcony of an East Village walk-up and then––as she’s done everywhere since leaving South Carolina––she gets to know her neighbors. She is, after all, a former debutante who believes that manners make the world a better place even if they seem currently lacking in the big city.

Plus, she has a knack for helping people. There’s Ruby with her scrapbook of wedding announcements; single mom Lola; reclusive chef Nate; and George, a courtly ex-doorman. They may not know what to make of her bees and her politeness, but they can’t deny the magic in her honey.

And then there’s Theo, a delightfully kind Scotsman who crosses Sugar’s path as soon as she gets into town and is quickly besotted. But love is not on the menu for Sugar. She likes the strong independent woman she’s become since leaving the South and there’s nothing a charmer like Theo can do to change her mind . . . only her bees can do that.

The Wedding Bees is a novel about finding sweetness where you least expect it and learning to love your way home.



THE WEDDING BEES by Sarah – Kate Lynch is a sweet Romance. What a sweet story of love, romance, and bees set in Alphabet City, Manhattan. Sugar Wallace loves her beloved bees, and good manners. She is a true Southern Belle, with her charm, wit and good manners. Enter….. Theo Fitzgerald, an attorney for a non-profit organization who just happens to be allergic to what else….bees.

They are attracted from the start. A fun read filled with second chances, redemption, new love and the power of Southern charm mixed with the eccentricities of New York City. What  a tale! “The Wedding Bees” was a joy to read with its eccentric, engaging characters and its unique storyline. Oh and you learn a bit about Bees, and Bee Keepers. You do not want to miss this sweet romance! A great read! Received for an honest review from the publisher.
