    New Member for Midge’s Couch Potato Club

    It’s Fire Season in Southern California – scorching hot, smoky, and sooty – which means instead of enjoying the famous California sunshine, we are trying to stay cool and calm indoors. Last week Midge Frazel posted Couch Potato Family History at Granite in My Blood, her latest find in the genealogy mystery genre, The Blood Detective The Blood Detective by Dan Waddell. She even posted images of her Twitter conversation with the author. Quite impressive.

    Okay, Midge, I’ll see you one and raise you two (volumes) – have you discovered one of my very favorite genealogy mysteries, Bloodline (Natasha Blake, Ancestor Detective, Book 2) by Fiona Mountain? Natasha Blake is a professional genealogist in England who finds out "research is murder." I don't think it's available for the Kindle, alas. For instant gratification via wireless download I also like Mansions of the Dead (Sweeney St. George Mystery)  by Sarah Stewart Taylor. Her protagonist is an art history professor who specializes in mourning jewelry and spends a lot of time in cemeteries. Sound familiar! Maybe you can add to the list!

    Yes, fellow couch potato, I have read two of Fiona Mountain's books and some by Sarah Stewart Taylor.
