Jodi Picoult is the author of 17 number 1 UK bestsellers. Now with Mad Honey she has joined up with co-author Jennifer Finney Boylan to give us the most compelling, challenging and contemporary novel you will read this year - and which will start conversations we need to have.
Olivia fled her abusive marriage to return to her hometown and take over the family beekeeping business when her son was six. Now Asher is over 6 feet tall and in his last year of high school, a kind, good-looking, popular ice hockey star with a tiny sprite of a new girlfriend who Olivia loves. Then Lily is found with a catastrophic head injury at the bottom of the stairs - and Asher is arrested on a charge of murder. . . What was the truth of their relationship?

I enjoy this book it had me gripped from the first chapter, I also liked the twist at the end
Good book recommended
I may be in the minority here but I really found this book to be disappointing. The plot was shallow, predictable and slow moving. It wove ineffectually between different characters’ past, present and future which meant the main plot line - and the only interesting one in my view - developed irritatingly sluggishly. The only vaguely interesting parts for me were the unique information given about honey. I felt the narrator also did not present the characters particularly well or have much alternation in her expression. Kind of dull overall. I usually love Jodi Picoult, but this one didn’t do it for me I’m afraid.
