Mad Honey - Jodi Picoult
I've not read a Jodi Picoult book in years. As usual, I was engaged immediately, turning pages late into the night to find out what happened next. The twists in Mad Honey are always brilliant, as are the court case scenes. The book is full of beautiful language and food for thought. I loved learning about bees and always want to go to the towns she writes about!
From the back Lily also knows what it feels like to start over - when she and her mother relocated to New Hampshire it was all about a fresh start. She and Asher couldn't help falling for each other, and Lily feels happy for the first time. But can she trust him completely? Then Olivia gets a phone call - Lily is dead, and Asher is arrested on a charge of murder. As the case against him unfolds, she realises he has hidden more than he's shared with her. And Olivia knows firsthand that the secrets we keep reflect the past we want to leave behind - and that we rarely know the people we love well as we think we do.
