Book Summary

France, 1371. The old Queen of France lies on her deathbed with a secret she will take to her grave: there is one true heir to the throne, one who would have the power to ally France and Scotland. But after her death, all that will be left are a few shreds of evidence revealing the stunning identity of her successor.
Flight attendant Skye Armstrong has heard the voice of warning before, and as she’s returning home from London, she recognizes the feeling of dread that accompanies her sixth sense. Walking from the airport terminal to get to her car, she pauses in the middle of the road. Her hesitation gives a Good Samaritan the split second he needs to pull her out of the path of a speeding car, saving her life. But her misfortunes are just beginning. When she arrives home, she discovers that Auntie Marjorie has been kidnapped, and cryptic instructions have been left behind: Skye must retrieve the contents of a safe deposit box and deliver it to the captors . . . No police. Her feelings of dread return.
What Skye discovers in the bank box is baffling: a single page. The ancient document is certainly valuable, and with no time to lose, she goes to the rendezvous to discover the next step. A cell phone rings beneath a park bench. She answers the call, and on the screen is a picture of Auntie, unconscious. Now the kidnapper demands Skye find two more pages or her aunt will die.
What secrets are hidden within the illuminated pages, and who believes they are worth killing for? And what role does the Good Samaritan play in all of it?
My Review
Bloodline is the newest mystery/suspense novel from author Kathi Oram Peterson. This book gave me great anxiety. It starts in the past in 1371 and then switches to present day. From the beginning, the main character Skye is almost ran down and then she finds out her beloved Auntie Marjorie has been kidnapped. This novel is set up so well that through most of the book you have no idea who to trust. I mean every single person that Skye has "helping" her to find her Auntie and the secret pages from the past could potentially be who is behind the mystery. I felt that everyone had reasons to be the bad guy, even the handsome and mysterious Jack.

Bloodline is not an easy book to put down so I suggest you find some quiet time to just read the whole book in one sitting. There is a lot of action in the book and a blossoming romance but the best part is figuring out all of the clues that are being given. This novel also has a lot of history centering around The Hundred Years War and the royalty of England, France, and Scotland at that time. You could almost call this novel's genre historical- mystery- suspense. You can tell that the author did extensive research as she threaded together the plot. If you like this type of novel you need to read Bloodline. One last note, I LOVED the cover of this novel. It's just gorgeous! Everyone wanted to know what the book was about as I wandered around with it trying to catch a few minutes to keep reading.

This book is good for older teens and adults and has mild violence. Bloodline will keep you guessing and stressing from the beginning until the very end.
