Taking a break from Reader's Choice...

Which, yes, I just started. What can I say, maybe I have ADD.
Cankered Roots by G G Vandagriff
5 stars
LDS Mystery

I LOVE these books! Cankered Roots is the first in a series-- so far there are 4. Alex and Briggie are professional geneaologists who get themselves into all sorts of trouble when Alex decides to confront her parents about her own family history. (The first 2 books relate to her family history.)

These are all quick reads. I read the first 2 yesterday. They are murder mysteries, but they're entirely tame. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them for a teen or even a preteen that reads a lot.


  1. Sounds interesting Britt. Sometimes diving into family history can bring some unexpected surprises.

    Great blog btw.

  2. Can't join you on this one. I read Cankered Roots several years ago and found it only moderatly interesting. Her latest book is Arthurian Omen which was a big disappointment. It just didn't click with me.
