Rebecca is a young woman who has just suffered an awful breakup. She is ready, willing and able for a change in her life and the opportunity just falls into her lap. Rebecca has a distant relationship with her mother and believes she was born through an unknown sperm donor; when she receives a letter talking about her father, her life is turned upside down. The letter is signed by a woman named Beatrice, who states that her father has had a heart attack and it would be a good idea for her to travel to Scotland to meet him. Delighted to find out that she no longer needs to imagine a father, Rebecca packs her bags and heads to Scotland. Once there, Rebecca meets Gavin, who rescues her from a bee attack. The two are quickly drawn to each other, but circumstances make this romance difficult. Rebecca finds her father, who lives on a large estate and welcomes her with open arms.
Byrd and the Bees, a romantic lighthearted story, is a fairy tale come to life. There are many adventures to share with Rebecca as the story progresses, which make this a great read. I really enjoyed Byrd and the Bees. It had humor, love, adventure, good guys and bad guys and more to keep it entertaining from beginning to end. Author Christine McInerney Fry has created characters with personality and I look forward to reading more about them in future books. Byrd and the Bees is a winner for all women, young and older.
