Book Review
Readers\' Favorite Book Contest Award Winner Reviewed by for Readers' Favorite

Death by Drowning by Abigail Keam is the second book of Ms. Keam's murder mystery series. Middle-aged Josiah Reynolds, a Kentucky beekeeper, falls forty feet off a cliff and is severely injured. After multiple surgeries and extensive rehabilitation, she is ready to begin the pursuit of her attacker as well as attempting to solve the mystery of the death of a local boy. In order to keep her from harm's way, Josiah's daughter hires two personal bodyguards, one a very handsome Native American physical therapist named Jake who awakens feelings Josiah has not felt in years. As Josiah struggles to heal her body and soul, her boarder Matt and his partner all rally around Josiah in order that she can resume her beekeeping activities and develop some sense of a normal life. The group is continually warned by threats to Josiah, and this spurs the woman to seek answers to the questions about her own "accident," as well as the real story surrounding the death of a teenage boy.

This book was a fun and exciting read. Humor is parceled out in just the right amount, as is friendship and loyalty. The characters are very well developed, each rich in his or her own idiosyncrasies. Ms. Keam writes such that readers want to know more of Josiah's life and the ending will not disappoint their need to know.
