    "I love a good mystery and this book did not disappoint. Just as you think you have things figured out it turns everything around on you and you are on the hunt again. I highly recommend this great book from Laurie King. "

    "I found The Beekeeper's Apprentice to be a great addition to the Sherlock Holmes tradition. It was well-crafted and very creative. In this novel, Sherlock Holmes meets his female match. Throughout the book, I was riveted by the bizarre clues and action. Really good book! I definitely recommend getting it."

    "I was a bit hesitant to start this book because it seem like a piece of light fan fiction. But I am really glad I did. The Beekeeper's Apprentice by Laurie R. King is a fresh, thrilling, and exciting book that is tremendous fun to read. The only complaint I have is that I feel there should have been more focus on the villain who is a complex and entertaining character but is not well defined. I recommend this book for anyone who loves Sherlock Holmes or strong, intelligent, female characters."

    "Great mystery set in the time of Sherlock Holmes. Great suspense and writing. I loved it and found it hard to put down. "

    "I love mystery novels, especially those involving Sherlock Holmes. What's unique and wonderful about this book is that Holmes has finally met someone who can match his intellect, and much to his chagrin, it happens to be a woman. There's great chemistry throughout the story between Holmes and Miss Mary, and even though it's somewhat predictable, it's impossible to put it down."

    "I've read this book in college when I was younger and vaguely remembered it probably cause I didn't pay much attention in college! However, I was interested in catching up on it one day and saw that Amazon had it available. Luckily for me they provide it as a audible download, for free! It was very easy to catch up on this great mystery story on my early morning jogs."

    "Like most of other novels from this author, this was great. Really fun takes on the genre, keeping a lot of the structure and themes we love while injecting a lot of clever and unique newness. Well paced and well written."

    "If I had to choose the best book with a name of an insect in the title, I would choose "The Beekeeper's Apprentice". This is a Sherlock Holmes pastiche fiction and it has plenty of twists and turns to keep to flipping the little-more than 300 pages. Its a quick exiting read that is not to be missed!"
