Blood Honey

It would be financially prudent for Mims Walsh to stick to writing celebrity gossip articles rather than investigate why an elderly beekeeper's honey has turned red. The death of her journalism dreams won't hurt so much once she has the money for avocado toast... not to mention toilet paper and rent.

Smart & Funny!

Blood Honey has the perfect ratio of character development-to-action. You *know* the main characters well enough to really care what happens to them if the plot doesn’t go their way. Mims Walsh is desperate to not let her journalism career entirely fizzle out, even though it never took off in the first place. She’s feeling firmly late 20s as all of her friends are becoming successful and she’s 100% not. Faced with either committing to tabloid writing or taking on an investigation into why NYC’s rooftop bee hives are making red honey, she decides to give the career she loves one more shot. Teddy Beasley has a similar problem - he’s in his mid-late-twenties and has just inherited his family’s company. He got the company into a lot of debt and then turned to **NO SPOILERS** a pretty funny yet also illegal way of getting cash on the side. As Mims investigates the bees, she gets closer to inadvertently also figuring out what Teddy is up to. It’s great watching their collision course unfold. Oh also they are both terrible at dating. The book is fun and funny but still realistic. The tone is darker maybe than a cozy (it’s not a mystery - more general “crime fiction”), but because of the funny parts it balances out the danger and the quarter life crisis angst. It's similar to Counterfeit by Kirstin Chen (crime + women's fiction) or Made for Love by Alissa Nutting (quirky yet insightful).
