Author: Neena Gaynor

Release Date: April 21, 2020

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?

IN MY OPINION
One of my favorite things about books is finding an unexpected gem, and The Bird and the Bees by Neena Gaynor is just that.
Larkin Maybie has many regrets. Her life has been hard. She’s made (and sometimes continues to make) poor choices and she’s floundering with her future. As I spent time with Larkin and more of her past is revealed, my heart hurt for her. She’s broken and she knows it but she doesn’t know how to fix it.
Enter Ketch Devine whose patience, consistency, and gentleness speak to Larkin’s heart like no one else has. At the same time, she knows this is a man who is too good for her. But through Ketch, Larkin learns the true meaning and blessing of unconditional love.
This gentle story has moments of humor, more of heartache, and a message that is filled with glorious hope. I will definitely be keeping my eyes out for more books from this author.
