ABOUT THE BOOK

 

The Bird and the Bees

Title: The Bird and the Bees
Author: Neena Gaynor
Publisher: Mantle Rock Publishing 
Release Date: April 21, 2020
Genre: Christian Contemporary Romance

When Larkin Maybie buries her mother in the foothills of Appalachia, she is left all alone. Her only inheritance? A crazy aunt, a mountain of debt, and a run-down, secluded cabin left by a mysterious benefactor. While Larkin thinks an escape to a cabin miles from anything familiar might be exactly what she needs, the quick answer to her problems only leaves her with more questions... Questions concerning her true identity.

As Larkin searches for her link to the Lewandowski Estate, she begins to accept the kindness of strangers on Presque Isle and the affection of professional baseball player, Ketch Devine. Charged with caring for the cabin’s honey bees and haunted by past choices, Larkin struggles to move forward in a new direction and is running out of time. With summer and baseball season coming to an end, she must decide: what is the value of true love?

EXCERPT:

I didn’t beat the rain and got soaked walking from the washed-out drive to the cabin. Coal met me at the door, also drenched and full of disgruntled meows. I wrapped us both in towels and hurried about the cabin placing the few pots, trash cans, bowls, and buckets I could find to hold rain water coming in through the numerous leaks. The electric went out, and I lit the candles scattered throughout the cabin. The warm comfort of their lights filled the room as the dripping water played a solemn melody.

Ting, ta-ting, ting, drip.
Ting, ta-ting, ting, drip.

Coal’s eyes danced as he watched the water fall into the pots. His long tail kept time. I drifted between daydreams and dozing, wondering if Maria Lewandowski was my real mother.
