What To Do

Awarding-winning Kentucky author, Abigail Keam, to release her third book April
Print this page

I think it is safe to say that Kentucky is, indeed, a land of a great many mysteries.  Sometimes I find myself deep in pensive thought over such puzzling conundrums as to the color of the grass – mine is, in fact, decidedly green – or the potent combination of 11 herbs and spices that the dastardly Colonel has kept secret all these long years…And what, exactly, is a Seersucker suit?  Does anybody really, truly know??  While these great Bluegrass (??) hills hold their tongue on the solemn lore that haunts this fair valley, other Kentuckians are decidedly keen on the practice of mystery-making.  In the case of author – and award-winning beekeeper – Abigail Keam, the misty veil of horse-country is the perfect backdrop to showcase her series of mystery novels.  Her latest release in the adventures of super sleuth, Josiah Reynolds – Death By Bridle – will be released this Thursday, April 12th

Abigail Keam, a Kentucky native, is a nationally-renowned writer splitting her time between a devotion to her award-winning mystery series, as well as her award-winning honey and honey-based products.  The popular “Death By…” series has garnered much acclaim, with the first two books – Death By A HoneyBee and Death By Drowning – both taking home a Gold Medal Award from Reader’s Favorite and named as finalists on the “Best Books List of 2011” by USA Book News.  The third installment, Death By Bridle, is already attracting praise for both Keam’s literary voice of history, humor and realism, as well as her dynamic twining of plot with “vision and understanding”.

While her writing satisfies the reader’s taste for mystery, her professional beekeeping business likewise satiates the palates of those hungry for honey.  Sharing her protagonist’s profession, Keam and her bees have produced a local brew of honey – and natural, honey-based products – that have enjoyed the praise of the Kentucky State Fair to the tune of 16 total awards.

Death By Bridle will be hot off the press this Thursday, April 12th; pick it up at your favorite book store (which, for the love of Pete, people, should be Carmichael’s) and feel comforted by the knowledge that some mysteries of Bluegrass will come to resolutions with delicious results (apparently, as well as the 11 herbs and spices, we don’t really want to know what’s in KFC).

About Erin Day

I currently spend most of my days sequestered in a dark and secret room projecting IMAX films for an adoring public. In my spare time I read books (a lot) and contemplate ever more devious ways to become a professional Blacksmith. I love words, paper, fashion, trees, Charlie Chaplin, useless knick-knacks and my beloved turquoise 1994 Ford Ranger - Daniel. I totally believe in the Loch Ness Monster. Books are culture; my goal is to tell you a story.
