Book Review - The Somme Legacy (Jayne Sinclair Genealogical Mystery 2)

Title: The Somme Legacy (Jayne Sinclair Genealogical Mystery 2)
Author: M.J Lee
Release Date: 9th February 2017
Rating: 4 stars

Thank you to TBC and the author for giving me the opportunity to read and review an ARC of 'The Somme Legacy'.

This is the second in the Jayne Sinclair Genealogical Mystery series by M.J Lee and I enjoyed it every bit as much as the first in the series 'The Irish Inheritance'.

The story moves seamlessly between the past and the present, with the genealogical aspect adding to the intrigue and suspense as the events of the past slowly begin to reveal themselves.

Jayne Sinclair herself is a fascinating character, who is brought vividly to life in this series of books and I very much hope to see more of her in the future. The weakest element of the story was the villain who sometimes came across as a bit of a 'pantomime villain' to me, but other than that I loved this book and would recommend it to anyone who enjoys a well researched historical mystery with the added bonus of a genealogical twist.

A fabulous 4 stars.
