Set on Franks beloved Sullivans Island, South Carolina Queen Bee is a classic Lowcountry Tale – “warm, wise and hilarious, it roars with humanity and a dropperful of whodunit added for good measure by an unseen hand. In her twentieth novel, Dorothea Benton Frank brings us back to her beloved island with an unforgettable story where the Lowcountry magic of the natural world collides with the beat of the human heart.” -Harpercollins.com
