Summary
Affectionately dubbed The Honeybee Sisters in their Wisconsin Amish community, the three Christner girls are devoted beekeepers who are coming-of-age-and discovering the sweet surprise of love...

Shy, skittish Rose Christner is more comfortable tending to the beehives on the family farm and keeping her aunt's unruly cats in line than attending social gatherings with the rest of the die youngie . A childhood trauma and secret shame keep her heart under lock and key, and Rose just can't accept the sweet attention she's receiving from a handsome neighbor. But the more she shies away from Josiah Yoder, the more their families sneakily plot to bring them together. And when a vandal who's been plaguing the Honeybee Farm starts targeting Rose, Josiah's steadfast protection-and patience-just may lead her into his waiting arms...

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Rose Christner is tired of being afraid. For years, the thought of dealing with the outside world or attending a social gathering was enough to keep her happily at home, baking in the kitchen and taking care of the family's beehives. Even the idea of spending time with her neighbor, Josiah Yoder, sweet as he may be, is a bit frightening. But now that Rose realizes the burden she has placed on her family, she is determined to change her solitary ways. She begins by spending more time with Josiah. Beckstrand brings her Wisconsin-set Honeybee Sisters trilogy about the three Christner women (see also Sweet as Honey and A Bee in Her Bonnet, both 2016) to a wonderfully satisfying conclusion with a charmingly sweet story that beautifully celebrates the triumph of everyday courage and compassion as well as the importance in life of faith and family. For all fans of Amish romances, inspirational romances, and gentle love stories.--Charles, John Copyright 2016 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Beckstrand neatly, sweetly ties up her Honeybee Sisters trilogy of contemporary Amish romances (after A Bee in Her Bonnet), continuing the warmth, gentle humor, and faith in human goodness that characterized the earlier books. Here she pairs up skittish, anxiety-ridden youngest sister Rose Christner and shy Josiah Yoder, the young farmer who has been adoring her for years. Fans of introverted characters will be pleased to finally see inside Rose and Josiah's minds and will be cheered to watch them brave their insecurities as Beckstrand explores surviving the death of a parent and how communities reject or take care of their own. The mystery of the vandals on the Christners' property comes to a head with light tension set into the framework of gentle forgiveness that carries the rest of the story. Cat antics, strange hair, fussy grandparents, and delicious cookies have had their run, and this series couldn't support a fourth volume, but Beckstrand cleanly closes with a triple wedding and a few more recipes to remember the Christner sisters by.
