Hump Day Hype: #34

the wedding bees


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.

My Thoughts:

This book sounds like a very gooey kind of romance..if that makes sense haha. It just seems super cute and one of those books that would be perfect to read in the summertime.

I really love the cover of this book and the title intrigues me…I wanna see what it’s all about. I was interested in this book because the title and the cover just drew me in. Maybe that’s because I really like bees and honey…or because I’m biased since my parents did have bees for a while haha.

I also think Sugar seems like a really cute and unique character who’s really outgoing rather than a lot of romance novels with characters who are usually bitter and kind of closed off. Sugar seems like she goes out of her way to really be kind to others and care about other which I love. However, I haven’t read this book so I could be wrong…the synopsis just gives me those vibes.

Anyway comment below if this book sounds good to you. 🙂
