I listened to the audio version of this book. Just let me say to start off, that I am amazed at all the negative comments on this book on Goodreads. This is my first by Dorothea Benton Frank and therefore I had no expectations. Maybe that's the difference.
I thought this book was wonderful! It was informative, entertaining and laugh out loud hilarious! The blurb for the book on Goodreads doesn't give you any of that. I also don't read blurbs before I read the book if it has been recommended to me. Again, maybe that's why I liked it so much. The blurb for it on Audible will give you a better idea of what is going on in this book. It was packed full of wacky characters (enter the drag queens) and also brimming with humanity. The ending was justified and surprising all at the same time. I loved this book! The narration by Shannon McManus was superb!
It's my understanding that the author recently passed away. This was one heck of a book to go out on!

I have read the books of Dorothea Benton Frank for years. They are not my usual cup of tea, but are always heartwarming and humorous. Kristi & Abby Tabby

Every "Bee" book I have ever read has left me smiling and wanting to keep bees. Never has it been more true than with 'Queen Bee'. As with the too few other Dorothea Benton Frank books I've read, 'Queen Bee' started a little slow for me, but woo boy, did it take off like fireworks in every direction imaginable . . . and some less so!

'Queen Bee' is funny, thought provoking, heart-rendering with some angst thrown in and just plain filled with spirit that is undaunted. Finishing at 2am, I went to sleep with a smile. It just can't get better than that.
