The Beekeeper’s Bullet (Wind in the Wire Book 1) by Lance Hawvermale

I was provided this ARC by NetGalley and The Wild Rose Press in exchange for my honest review.

Rating: 3 out of 5.

My Thoughts:

What I Loved: The main character, Ellenor Jantz is a great character. She’s full of spunk and personality. Her opening scenes were great, and I thought I was going to really enjoy the book, however, the book fizzled for me a bit after that.

How I Felt: I couldn’t quite get into this book the way I wanted. I liked the characters, but not enough to truly connect with them. The premise of the story was very interesting, but I just never felt invested the way I wanted to.

To Read or Not To Read: This is a romance, rescue mission and would be great for romance readers who enjoy historical fiction. If you enjoy other books by Lance Hawvermale, this might be a good read for you.


What’s This Book About Anyway?

It’s World War 1, and Ellenor, an American, is living in Germany. An English plane (the enemy) crash lands right by her and she ends up taking the very injured pilot (Alex) captive. Once she gets him home, she is given news that some of the German pilots will be staying on their estate. She has to move her captive pilot, and in the process, gets to know him and understand why he is there. He must find and save his sister from a planned bombing of the factory she works in. The remainder of the book focuses on the escape from the estate and the travel to save Alex’s sister.
