The Bloodthirsty Bee

The Bloodthirsty Bee is the 6th book in the Julie Cavallo series.  I love the quirky characters in this series and the setting in Provence is a fun and unique place to set mysteries.  The mystery is well written and I liked reading about the family dynamics both within Julie's family but the other characters as well.  If  you are looking for books based on characters and relationships this is a great cozy series you can find on Kindle Unlimited.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

plot twists abound

I really enjoy the Julie Cavallo mysteries and how well developed her relationships with her friends and family are. The mystery is well thought out with realistic rational behind the crimes and a thorough examination of motive and means I look forward to reading more in the series and to learning more about the primary characters
