“The Beekeeper’s Apprentice” by Laurie R. King

JoyRecommended by JoyThe Beekeeper's Apprentice
The first in a lovely series. “The Beekeeper’s Apprentice” pairs Sherlock Holmes with an unlikely understudy. At the start of the story, Mary Russell is a young fifteen year old, who is nerdy and lonely. Due to an unfortunate accident Mary finds herself in England living with her aunt. She is stumbled upon by Holmes and the two become friends and intellectual rivals. The reading is light and the adventures are wonderful to observe. Anyone interested in a less than serious novel about Sherlock Holmes in his late years will enjoy this series.
