BEEKEEPER among the greats!

I was greatly honored to find that The Beekeeper’s Apprentice has been given a place among the Goodreads 100 Top Mysteries, here

Looking at all those other names–Christie and Conan Doyle among them–both makes me think, Yeah there’s some mistake there and makes me very proud and happy.

How many of the books have you read?

    Well deserved! There should be more of your books on the list, in my humble, but accurate, opinion.

    EXCELLENT! CONGRATULATIONS! (wish there were more on the list…) you stand with Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Agatha Christie, Rex Stout and Dorothy L. Sayers! very well deserved!

    Looks like me recommending the series to an average of 2.5 people per week is starting to pay off. 🙂 But seriously, it is entirely deserving of that accolade (and I really do recommend it to friends all the time). Congratulations!

    Oh! I was just going to write that I’ve read all of them😍

    Way to Go!!!! Well deserved place of honor!

    Excellent, and I completely agree!!! I’ve read every one, loved them all, and have gone on to read other books you’ve written. Folly is brilliant and amazing!!!

    Oh, I am so delighted for you.

    I thank you for this well-written book. Loved the vivid visit to the moors and pastures of foggy England. Most likely, I will read this novel again due to your tight mystery structure woven inside such compelling and intelligent characters.

    You gave the missing link to Sherlock Holmes, female wiles, a scholarly companion, and beekeeper’s apprentice.

    How exciting! And well-earned. 🙂

    I’ve read them all, can hardly wait to read the next one, and earnestly yearn for the series to continue and continue and continue! 🙂

    Congratulations Laurie!

    The question isn’t how many I’ve read, but how many times I’ve read them. I just started my fourth readthrough, starting with Beekeeper’s and I will go all the way through to the end of Island of the Mad (which I just finished last night). “Read,” as the verb, is doing a bit of work here, because I am actually listening to Jenny Stirlin’s narration. It’s probably not too big a stretch to call me obsessed with this series. In a good way!

    So. When does the *next* one come out? ::hopeful::
