Review: If Not for a Bee

If Not for a Bee
If Not for a Bee by Carol Ross
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

💜💜💜💜💜  I loved this book!!  An encounter with a bumble bee did not make for a pleasant introduction between Aidan Hollings and Janie Everett, and their future acquaintances weren’t faring much better. Janie, widowed and raising four boys, including a set of toddler twins, couldn’t be bothered with Botanist Aidan Hollings, although it would be difficult to avoid him since his sister was married to her brother. Why did he have to settle in Rankins, Alaska now anyway?  His meddling concerning a bumble bee had caused her boys pain, and that was the last thing she wanted to have happen.  However, was Janie being selfish and unwilling to accept how Aidan’s future meddling would transform the lives of her boys, teaching her lessons that would ultimately make her a better mother?  Although things started off on a bad note between Janie and Aidan, might he not be the one man who could help Janie to face her fears respecting her boys’ welfare, and propel them to their greatest potential?
As is customary with Carol Ross’s books, If Not for a Bee’s opening scene pulled me directly into the story. The pace was so refreshing, and even began to increase in intensity toward the end of the book which was a wonderful surprise, leading to a beautiful, Hearwarming ending.  There were so many great elements to this book. I loved how many of the characters learned to acquire confidence in their abilities, and to face their fears. I’m also happy that Janie got a second chance at love after all she’d been through.  I enjoyed this book so much and can’t recommend it enough to lovers of sweet romance.  Carol Ross’s books just keep getting better.  Thank you Carol Ross for gifting this book to me. In exchange I have provided an honest review.
