My Review

Who knew something as simple as a DNA test could lead to a whole lot of mischief!

I have always thought about doing one, but now I would be even more cautious or nervous to take one. Who knows what could happen or where it would lead? Personally, I loved how Colleen Coble used something like a DNA test and made a spectacular mystery surrounding it. The idea got my brain thinking and very involved/engaged with the characters and their thought processes. It was like living out a dream, you never quite knew where you (or the characters) would end up.

This book kept me guessing the whole time, although I had my theories, as to what was happening and why it was happening to some seemingly random people. I truly enjoyed the roller coaster that Colleen Coble took me on. There were many happy moments, some very serious life-altering moments that personally would have been very hard to write. However, Colleen Coble gave depth to the personal decisions her characters made and by the end of the book I really felt that I had gotten to know the characters quite well and really didn’t want for their story to end. Colleen Coble did leave the opening for another book in the series and I am excited to see what comes next 😊

I read a lot of mystery/suspense books, and this one was great. It kept my mind involved and stuck with me even after I read it. I truly think that this is a well-written book. I encourage you to read it and let me know your thoughts on it. I loved to hear them. I know that this book is not one of Colleens best, however it is still a great book. I give this book a 4 out of 5 stars for the unique plot theme, the likeable characters and the feeling that I won’t be forgetting this book anytime soon.

  1. I didn’t end up liking this book as much as you did, but I do think the premise is super interesting. I’m very into genealogy, so it appealed to me for sure 🙂 I submitted my DNA to Ancestry a few years ago and nothing even remote dangerous has happened because of it. I think it’s safe — as long as you’re not a fictional character, apparently!
    Glad you enjoyed the book!
