The Story

Elizabeth Jane Berg, a refugee from her own childhood, is a beekeeper leading a quiet life on Cape Cod. She’s tormented by painful memories and suppressed anger. When she meets Monica, a mysterious woman without a past, a vessel brimming with desire and ambition, Elizabeth begins to unravel. A fuse is lit triggering a devious plot that  spirals out of control and ultimately ensnares Elizabeth and her whole family in an all consuming tragedy.

We love beginnings, and this one begins exceptionally well:

Father will be here soon.
I am prepared now, at last.
My mind is quiet now, finally.

So opens Love Stings, as Elizabeth Jane Berg, a refugee from her own childhood, recounts the plan, the plot, she initiates after she meets Monica,  a woman without a past, who has killed Elizabeth’s little brother and is about to sleep with her father.

Something cruel lay within me, something that should never have been indulged, a coldness blowing in a corner of my soul, as punishing as a January on the Cape.

Love Stings is a sunlit noir set on Cape Cod’s beaches and in Connecticut’s toney suburbs. It is a story of familial betrayal, obsession, revenge, and beekeeping.
