Book Description:​

Facing his fear

Could give him the family he’s always wanted.

Returning to his hometown to clean up his late parents’ home, professor Heath Underwood has no intention of making his stay permanent. Especially when he discovers his neighbor is a beekeeper. But avoiding widow Ali Harding proves difficult when her eight-year-old son bonds with him and his dog. As Heath spends more time with them, his fear of bees—and heartbreak—could stand in the way of his happily-ever-after…

From Love Inspired: Uplifting stories of faith, forgiveness and hope.

Author Danielle Thorne takes us on a hopeful journey to the little town of LaGrasse, Georgia. Widow Ali Harding and her young son have been there for a couple years now, but while Ali is quick to lend a hand to those in need, she won’t ask for help herself. This fledgling beekeeper believes her lot in life is to go it alone. Heath Underwood moves back next door - temporarily - to his (inherited) childhood home. The divorced college professor needs to clean it out and fix it up. What else needs cleaning out and fixing up? Heath’s heart, which he’s ensured is closed. But like Jeremiah 29:11 says, “For I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord…”. Could the instant love between Ali’s son and Heath’s dog start a bridge of friendship between them…and maybe more? You’ll want to find out in The Beekeeper Next Door, plus it has my favorite, an epilogue! I received a complimentary copy of this book, but my opinion is entirely my own.

Reading has always been my escape and writing quickly followed. I learned early I was better with words than numbers, and after receiving a typewriter for high school graduation, my dreams took off. I finished two awkward manuscripts before I wrote my third and found a publisher. The Privateer was a pirate adventure, and it’s still my favorite story. All of my books feature elements of nature along with heroines who have to find courage and grow–because we all do. In 2020, my first book with Harlequin was released. How I do it: Writing is a balancing act when you’re a woman, mother, and full-time homemaker. In the early years, I wrote late into the night while the family slept. I now write full time. I get started in the mornings after exercise, breakfast, and some scripture study. Once in the office, I hit my sales stats first and peek at Facebook, then I close everything down and put in 2 to 4 hours depending on my word count goals. Some years I plan a half-dozen books, others just a few. For me, writing is my world, but my people are my life. Family and close friends always come first. Sometimes words have to wait. How I’m inspired: My first memory of being starstruck was watching Robin Hood on an old black and white television. It was the first time I understood something magical can happen between a good man and woman, especially if bad guys and adventure lie in wait. From there it was Peter Pan and Agatha Christie then Miss Austen and Tolkien. I am the world’s biggest romantic although I don’t show it… I have to write it down. History, travel, books, and film are my biggest inspirations. Whenever I feel stuck or burned out, I find a great romantic series to watch or pull out my favorite movies. With all of the wonderful art around us in the world, a little down time with it always helps the imagination take off. Learn more about me at www.daniellethorne.com
