This is the second book in the Ancestry Detective series by S.C. Perkins, and I have to say that I absolutely loved it! Maybe it was the Grandpa angle in it and having Lucy’s grandpa play a big part. Or possibly it was that it was more about Lucy and her family and not so focused on the client family. The first book for some reason just didn’t catch my attention as far as the client’s genealogy went. I liked the client himself just as I liked Pippa in this book. I’m so glad I decided to give the second book a chance, it’s definitely a winner!
My Goodreads review:
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Oh I really enjoyed this second book, even more than the first one. I just loved Lucy’s grandpa and his stories about being in the war. I guess because it’s about spies and stuff like that, it kept my interest a lot more than the first book. I liked that it was more Lucy-family-centered with the client’s history overlapping and tying in, but not overpowering and being the main story.
The showdown was so exciting and nail biting. I loved how it wasn’t just one person who saved the day too. The ending was just what I’d hoped for, and I do love how everything was wrapped up in a neat package with all the explanations given. I’m very glad I decided to continue reading in the series! I just hope that Grandpa is back in the next books.
I voluntarily read and reviewed an ARC of this book provided by the publisher via NetGalley, and my opinions are my own.
