Audio Book Summary

GOOD MORNING AMERICA BOOK CLUB PICK • A soul-stirring novel about what we choose to keep from our past and what we choose to leave behind, from the New York Times bestselling author of Wish You Were Here and the bestselling author of She’s Not There

Olivia McAfee knows what it feels like to start over. Her picture-perfect life—living in Boston, married to a brilliant cardiothoracic surgeon, raising their beautiful son, Asher—was upended when her husband revealed a darker side. She never imagined that she would end up back in her sleepy New Hampshire hometown, living in the house she grew up in and taking over her father’s beekeeping business.
Lily Campanello is familiar with do-overs, too. When she and her mom relocate to Adams, New Hampshire, for her final year of high school, they both hope it will be a fresh start. 
And for just a short while, these new beginnings are exactly what Olivia and Lily need. Their paths cross when Asher falls for the new girl in school, and Lily can’t help but fall for him, too. With Ash, she feels happy for the first time. Yet at times, she wonders if she can trust him completely. . . .
Then one day, Olivia receives a phone call: Lily is dead, and Asher is being questioned by the police. Olivia is adamant that her son is innocent. But she would be lying if she didn’t acknowledge the flashes of his father’s temper in Ash, and as the case against him unfolds, she realizes he’s hidden more than he’s shared with her.
Mad Honey is a riveting novel of suspense, an unforgettable love story, and a moving and powerful exploration of the secrets we keep and the risks we take in order to become ourselves.

    The description of the book is misleading. If I had known all the topics covered in this book, I would not have read it. I thought this would be an interesting book to listen to with my 13 year old son. Even he rolled his eyes and said, “here we go again.” Why do certain topics have to be forced upon us? Other than that, most of the storylines were good. It could have been a phenomenal book without the trans/gay parts

    I enjoyed the book and it was well written. I do think some of it was needless and could have been shorter. Maybe 10-11 hours instead of 15.

    Although I should be respecting everyone’s opinion, I am having trouble to understand when someone says this wasn’t a good book. Everyone should read/listen this book! Highly recommended!

    As a mother of a son named Asher with a daughter who plays cello; as well as new keeper of bees, I related to so much in this book. The topics that teens are encountering are very relevant as well. Hopefully I learned from this book in addition to enjoying the writing.

    Excellent novel with lots of surprises. I learned a lot about bees and about people and their reactions to differences in others.
