I just finished reading a new family history mystery entitled “Paging the Dead” by Brynn Bonner. 

The two protagonists are genealogist Sophreena McClure and her business partner Esme Sabatier.  While working for a client tracing the Prichett family history, a murder occurs.  Soph and Esme get involved searching through the family bloodlines, old photographs and oral history to uncover the murderer.  Esme becomes haunted by a Prichett great-grandmother trying to convey the clues needed to solve the mystery.

It was a fun read with good tips on how to protect your own heirlooms as Soph and Esme compile Prichett heirlooms for scrapbooks.  I am looking forward to the next genealogy mystery featuring two new sleuths in the mystery genre.
