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.

I’m glad I chose the audiobook or I likely would have never finished this. It was mediocre but just felt like a run on story back and forth. Could have been shorter.

I am not usually a fan of Jodi Picoult's books, but I loved this one! It dealt with the reality trans people and those who love them face every day, and it dealt with the reality of being a victim of domestic abuse. It also reminds us what can happen when the justice system decides who is guilty of a crime before investigating all the facts. Blockbuster!!

I loved everything about this book. The depth of the characters, the switching of times and the great writing and narration all came together so well. One of my favorites!

I don’t feel the description of this book is honest about what this is about. I feel like it was well written and they did a good job of educating on being transgender. You should tell people that this is what the book is about so they can make a choice if they want to pay for this. Were you afraid if you included that a major focus was transgender that you wouldn’t sell as many.

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.

Really enjoyed this book. Found the information on bee keeping fascinating, especially the explanation of mad honey. Narrators were both excellent.

I haven’t read a Jodi Picoult I’m a long time. This book was excellent. Such an insightful look at Lily’s life as a transgender. It was written with respect and the story kept me listening, I wasn’t able to put it down. Narrators we’re excellent! Definitely worth it.

Well, if I had been aware of the story line before purchasing, I wouldn't have. I absolutely love Jodi Picoult books, Im always waiting for the next read. The story line in this book is not my thing. I did fast forward through a lot of it because I was not interested in details pertaining to the story. However, as always her books are very well written.

Jodi Picoult does it again! This book was beautifully written, and I could not put it down until I finished reading it. As a mother, I felt every emotion the mom in the book was feeling and agonized right along with her!
