Book Review - Kindred by Steve Robinson

Title: Kindred (Jefferson Tayte Genealogical Mystery 5)
Author: Steve Robinson
Release Date: April 2016
Rating: 5 stars

Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher who gave me an ARC of Kindred in exchange for an honest review.

In this 5th outing of the Jefferson Tayte Genealogical Mysteries, we finally learn the true story behind JT's own family history. As a keen genealogist myself, I fell in love with these books from the very first one and 'Kindred' does not disappoint.

Fast paced and moving seamlessly between the present day and World War 2 Germany, this is the best one yet! Full of the twists and turns we have come to expect, but also incredibly moving at times, 'Kindred' takes you on a journey you would never have expected it to. My heart was in my mouth as the book gathered pace to reach its thrilling conclusion. I carried on reading long into the night as I just couldn't bring myself to put it down until the final page had been turned.

Jefferson Tayte is a warm, funny, lovable character, who you can't help but fall in love with. His research has a habit of getting him into all sorts of trouble, but I wouldn't have him any other way! If only my own genealogical research could be as interesting - but maybe not quite as dangerous!

A thrilling read and one I highly recommend. Steve Robinson is a gifted storyteller and I hope it isn't too long until we see more of the wonderful Jefferson Tayte. A very easy 5 stars.
