More novels with a genealogy connection

A friend from Saskatchewan, Eileen Condon, shared more titles of genealogy novels. She mentioned "Killing Cousins by Gene Stratton (the author of Applied Genealogy). It's been around since 1989, but I'm not sure if anyone else has suggested it. I also read Bloodline by Fiona Mountain--had Barnes and Noble order it for me after reading a review in "People" magazine. Of all places to find a genealogical reference!!" The latter is subtitled A Natasha Blake Ancestor Detective Mystery.

Please share your suggestions for novels with a genealogy connection. Send them to me via e-mail or as a comment to this blog post. I am seeing some duplication, but that's OK -- it may be mean a higher recommendation for the novel.
