The Honeybee Emeralds

We rated this book:


Jewels and honeybees aren’t usually paired together, but here they are assembled together in a fantastic necklace found by half a dozen individuals who are as disparate as bees and emeralds.

Editor Lily hopes the jewelry will save her struggling Parisian magazine. Mme. Bouchard, who has worked at the magazine for fifty years, seems to only be interested in whales. Crack writer Jacob wants a story out of the necklace’s discovery, while art expert Daphne is looking for a happiness she seems never able to find. Icelander Alexander is stolid and stoic: what (or who) does he want? And Alice, the shy Iranian-British ex-pat, desires the necklace itself, oddly obsessed by its allure.

The novel weaves in the voices of historical women of mystery and power, including Mata Hari and Josephine Baker, while also bringing the fictional women vividly to life. Packed with Parisian detail and a healthy dose of humor, this novel is a page-turner that entices you to follow one trail and another along with “The Fellowship of the Necklace” as they search for the answers to a most intriguing mystery.
