Bees in the Butterfly Garden

Lang, Maureen. Bees in the Butterfly Garden. Carol Stream, Ill: Tyndale House Publishers, Inc. 2012

imagesMeg Davenport, a student at Madame Marisse’s exclusive boarding school, longs to be included, loved and part of her father’s life. At his death, she learns who her father truly was and wonders if she might possess the same innate qualities to be a Gilded Age thief. Ian Maguire, a handsome rouge, plans to continue where Meg’s father left off but finds himself torn between using Meg’s high societal influence and protecting Meg from herself. Involved in a dangerous plot, Meg finds herself growing in her faith, her love and what truly matters most in life.

This book grabbed my attention from the cover, the title and then the first page. It is fast-paced, dangerously adventurous and enchantingly enjoyable. As the main character, it was interesting to watch Meg grow from a pampered, sheltered young woman into a faith-based, conscientious mature person. Full of precarious situations, suspenseful confrontations, historical encounters and even a little bit of romance, I truly loved this book from beginning to end.
Maureen Lang was a new author for me but will definitely be a repeat one. I already have the next book in the Gilded Age Legacy Series, All in Good Time!

    • This was honestly one of the best books I have read even though she was a new author for me! I loved discovering the reason for the title of the book too!
