Genre: Christian Contemporary Romance

When Larkin Maybie buries her mother in the foothills of Appalachia, she is left all alone. Her only inheritance? A crazy aunt, a mountain of debt, and a run-down, secluded cabin left by a mysterious benefactor. While Larkin thinks an escape to a cabin miles from anything familiar might be exactly what she needs, the quick answer to her problems only leaves her with more questions... Questions concerning her true identity.

As Larkin searches for her link to the Lewandowski Estate, she begins to accept the kindness of strangers on Presque Isle and the affection of professional baseball player, Ketch Devine. Charged with caring for the cabin’s honey bees and haunted by past choices, Larkin struggles to move forward in a new direction and is running out of time. With summer and baseball season coming to an end, she must decide: what is the value of true love?

What a super interesting debut novel! First off I just have to say that I adore this gorgeous pink cover, it's so pretty! 
Larkin is a memorable and relatable character who has made some very real mistakes, I was rooting for her to find redemption and I think you will be too! I also loved that the story was told in first person from Larkin's POV (First person is my personal fave!) 
I love this author's writing voice! It has just the right amount of wit and sarcasm and made for such a fun and engaging read!
I recommend The Bird and the Bees and I look forward to Neena Gaynor's next book!
(4 Stars!)

I received an ebook copy of this book from the publisher which did not influence my review in any way. All thoughts and opinions are one hundred percent my own.
