From the #1 bestselling author of The Great Pretender comes the shocking conclusion of the Favorite Things Trilogy—In When the Bee Stings, deep passions and bitter vengeance collide as the razor-sharp love triangle that began with Raindrops on Roses slices to an electrifying conclusion…
“I knew if I got rid of the competition, I’d be number one again…”
For happily ever after, Michael and Priscilla must first survive the wrath of Amber.
Twenty-seven-year-old freelancer Amber Holland expected marriage—but got dumped instead. Devastated, she finds herself alone ten years into a committed and treasured relationship. Michael Frost—the only man she’s ever loved—has fallen under the spell of one Priscilla Bauer, the gorgeous granddaughter of a Hollywood legend—leaving Amber shocked and unable to move on.
Feeling used up, abandoned and consumed with shame, Amber turns to someone who owes her big time—the only person equally committed to getting Michael back where he belongs.
But when stakes are miles high, how far can you go before risks obliterate rewards?
When the Bee Stings is a riveting tale that explores the bone-crushing depths of a woman scorned and the undeniable power of true love.
 

When the Bee Stings is the third and final novel in the Favorite Things Trilogy by Mellenia Black. This story is not a standalone, so make sure you read Raindrops on Roses and Blue Satin Sashes, books one and two in the trilogy, first!

When the Bee Stings begins right where the second book ends, with Cilla kidnapped. Michael is unaware that she has been taken and begins to wonder when he starts to receive strange texts.  Will Michael figure out Cilla has been kidnapped before it’s too late?  What will happen with Amber and her mother?

I really enjoyed this series and recommend you add them all to your TBR list!

Raindrops on Roses by Millenia Black is a suspenseful novel that moves pretty quickly. I listened to the Audio book narrated by Sharon Lacey. I enjoyed the story but felt it moved a little too quickly for my liking… wishing the author stretched it out a little more. I liked the characters as well as the plot. FYI, there is some cheating and it ends in a cliffhanger.

Blue Satin Sashes is the second novel in the Favorite Things Trilogy by Mellenia Black.  This story is not a standalone, so make sure you read Raindrops on Roses, book one in the trilogy first.  Blue Satin Sashes begins right where the first book ends.  Michael is on his way to France to apologize and explain things to Priscilla.  Amber is still trying to get Michael back and her schemes are getting crazier and crazier! I became absorbed in the story quickly and read the book in one day.  I am looking forward to the third book, When the Bee Stings, which is being released in February 2017!
