Blood-Tied by Wendy Percival. Read December 2014.

This is a cracking mystery story that I quickly became entangled in and didn’t come close to solving.
“Esme Quentin is devastated when her sister Elizabeth is beaten unconscious, miles from her home. Two days later Esme discovers that Elizabeth has a secret past. Desperate for answers which the comatose Elizabeth cannot give, Esme enlists the help of her friend Lucy to search for the truth, unaware of the dangerous path she is treading. Together they unravel a tangle of bitterness, blackmail and dubious inheritance, and as the harrowing story is finally revealed, Esme stumbles upon evidence of a pitiful crime.”
I loved the character of Esme and will definitely be putting her next adventure on my wishlist. Genealogy is an intriguing subject in itself and with the added elements in this story it made for a very satisfying read.
At times I got a bit lost as to how all the characters fitted in, but otherwise I found Blood-tied highly enjoyable. I would recommend this book to readers who enjoy a good mystery that presents you with a challenging puzzle.
Thank you to the author for the review copy of the book.
