    One thought on “Paging the Dead”

    1. Meh.Spotted the killer immediately upon being introduced to the character. The paranormal aspect was a random tangent that seemed totally superfluous until it suddenly held all the answers.Overall, it was an okay story, but I'm not impressed.

    2. Professional genealogist Sophie McClure and her partner, Esme Sabatier are almost finished researching a family history for Dorothy Pritchett Porter, but the evening of their final meeting, Dorothy is found murdered. Both of them soon become suspects and they realize they better start doing further research to help clear their name. I found this book interesting because the main characters use a combination of scrapbooking to record the information on the members of the family tree. An easy read [...]

    3. Interesting mystery which used genealogy to help solve the crime and had some scrapbooking thrown in for good measure. I will have to check out the next in the series.

    4. Very well written. A little romance, a little murder and genealogy. Some of my favorite things about a book. Some family secrets hidden out in the open. Would recommend. Can't wait to read her next one.

    5. If you enjoy scrapbooking or genealogy, you should enjoy this book. A light read, but I had fun reading it.

    6. Having grown up with two rabid genealogists and having benefited from their investigative skills, I'm always on the lookout for crime fiction that uses family history to solve murders. I was not disappointed with Paging the Dead. Brynn Bonner has created a smart, funny, and relentless investigator in Sophreena McClure, and her business partner, Esme Sabatier, seems to be a good match for her, although the older woman didn't play as big a part in the book as I would've liked. Since she didn't, he [...]

    7. Another cozy murder-mystery that was fun to read. Our main character is genealogist Sophreena McClure along with her business partner, Esme Sabatier, and I very much enjoyed their avocation, putting together genealogical lines and historical scrapbooks for people. When their client is murdered in the middle of their project for her, they are at first suspects and then detectives trying to clear the names of people they have come to like in the family. Family history can uncover nasty secrets and [...]

    8. Sophreena and Esme are business partners in a genealogy business. They will find your family history for a fee. They book begins with them visiting with Dorothy Pritchett Porter and giving her a family heirloom, a huge ring. After, they go to meet with their four friends and their amateur genealogy club, where they are told that Dorothy has been killed and they may have been the last to see her. Of course they are potential prime suspects. They vow to prove their innocence and also promise Cassi [...]

    9. "Paging the Dead" involves murder in a small North Carolina town and the work of genealogists/scrapbooking friends who help the local police track down the victim's murderer. The victim is the matriarch of a prominent family in town and the family of the victim asks the researchers to continue digging into the family tree and history. Many secrets are discovered, a few secrets that might upset or embarrass some family members while surprising several others. I enjoyed learning more about the wor [...]

    10. Very good book by local author Brynn Bonner that incorporates genealogy, family history, mystery and scrapbooking and archival processes. This is the first of a new series with genealogist Sophie McClure and her sidekick business partner (and medium) Esme Sabatier. They are hired to look into the family history of and make a bunch of scrapbooks for a very wealthy client; but when their client turns up dead and they become the number 1 suspects, Sophie becomes determined to find out who did it an [...]

    11. Ugh. It had a nice premise but I dislike books that make me frustrated with the main character's stupidity. There were no twists in this supposed mystery. The entire thing was blatantly obvious halfway through yet the characters, for some reason, (I'm guessing the author not wanting a short story) could not piece the puzzle together. Slow paced. I begrudgingly trudged through to the ending. But by then, I was so annoyed with how long it had taken a supposedly set if smart people to figure things [...]

    12. What a great introductory book into this (hopefully) new mystery series by author Bryn Bonner. Esme and Sophreena are just the beginning of a group of well thought out characters that seem to capture the eccenticies of small town life. I know this book is set in a fictional North Carolina town, but it really translates into any small town in the south. Add in their hobby turned job of genealogy (one of my fave hobbies) and scrapbooking (again-something I love) and I can totally relate to some of [...]

    13. Sophreena and her friend Esme run a genealogy and genealogical-scrapbooking business, but their latest client, daughter of the town's founding family, has been murdered, and they are among the last to have seen her alive. Like everyone else who knew Dorothy Pritchett Porter, they were often irritated by her autocratic manner, and they become suspects and the focus of gossip. Sophreena can't believe anyone she knows is guilty, but Esme is getting messages from one of Dorothy's ancestors (she does [...]

    14. Genealogist Sophie McClure spends much of her time researching the histories of families. With the help of her business partner and medium, Esme Sabatier, she is able to achieve extraordinary results in tracing family histories, which she translates into archival-scrapbooking. When one of their clients ends up dead and the evidence in the crime scene points to them, Sophie and Esme are immediately suspected of foul play. To clear their names they need to channel all of their investigative effort [...]

    15. This is a really enjoyable book and I look forward to more by this author. If you like scrapbooking or genealogy (or both, like me), you'll really like this one. One of the best things about it is that it takes place in NC (where I live) and the dialogue and southern expressions are spot on. There is no phony "let's make this a SOUTHERN mystery and say y'all in every sentence". The story flows and moves along nicely and even though it's pretty obvious who did it, the why's are more complicated. [...]

    16. Murder mystery with a bunch of genealogists on the case, plus 1 genealogist that can converse with the dead. Takes place in a small town in NC (I think it's NC). This was an OK read. It kept my interest throughout, but I wasn't dying to turn the pages. Not much on the super natural at all and that was ok. I believe it's the first in a series by the author. If I happen to catch the next one or see it around I'd pick it up but I don't think I'd actively search it out ot find out what happens next. [...]

    17. Kindle has realized that I like mysteries with a genealogy theme, so keeps recommending them. This was one of the better ones. The two protagonists have a business that combines family tree searches with archiving family documents and producing scrapbooks -- an interesting but exhausting-sounding business plan! When a client is murdered shortly after they have visited her, all kinds of family secrets come out. It took me most of the book to guess the murderer and I enjoyed the process. Recommend [...]

    18. Professional genealogists Esme and Sophreena get more than they bargain for when they sift through one family's secrets. Their contract includes a family tree and some scrapbooks, but when the family matriarch that hires them ends up murdered, they throw in a little investigative work for free. Of course, it helps that Esme has some extra special gifts that give them access to information not recorded in the family archives. As an archivist and librarian, I appreciated the attention to detail am [...]

    19. The genealogy angle caught my attention but the characters kept me going. I didn't mind that Esme was a "large medium" as it wasn't like the spirits gave her all the answers. It did seem to take Sophie a really long time to figure out what had been missing. (Spoiler alert!) There was also one problem with the timeline I think was missed; didn't Hank say Dorothy took off the ring while he was there? How could that be if Dorothy had already put the ring in Cassidy's mystery box? But I still really [...]

    20. Light, cozy mystery featuring two of my favorite things: a mystery and genealogy. And archival scrapbooking which is something I always think about doing but never seem to get around to it! This book is the first in a series and it is off to a promising start. The characters were all believable, fully drawn and filled out. The story was well plotted and the book is well written. I enjoyed the mystery portion even though I did have it solved about three quarters of the way through.I do recommend [...]

    21. The team of genealogists Sophreena and Esme is good, but making Esme a psychic was a little out there for me. Still, it was a decent mystery and a great view into the professional genealogist's world. Since that's my main hobby and reading murder mysteries is right up there next, this is a book seemingly written for me. While I will try another one of this series, I'm looking for something similar, but without the psychic.

    22. This mystery features a genealogist who creates scrapbooks from people's family history. Sophreena McClure has been hired to document a local woman's illustrious family, but before she can finish, the woman is found dead. Sophreena and her partner are initial prime suspects, but so are others in the town. My main objection to this is that as genealogists they should have at least suspected the eventual family skeleton.

    23. This was really a fine story. Maybe it is because I like geneology that I found the characters and their work very interesting, while not finding them snoopy and nosey for no good reason. The explanation of their work fit in nicely with the unfolding mystery.My only complaint was the description of the travel agent. Eyes rolling.

    24. First in a new series (2013) this book focuses on genealogist team Sophreena McClure and Esme Sabatier. They are hired by a wealthy socialite to research and highlight the background of her prominent family. With Esme’s help from the spirit world they are able to locate a missing family heirloom, and, when their client is murdered, ferret out her killer.

    25. I liked this book a lot, especially considering how weak the last few books I've read have been.Esme and Sophreena are fun characters and I was really fascinated by the look into professional genealogists.

    26. It sounded good until I learned that one of the members of the "crack" genealogical team was a medium. Interesting premise ruined by a lazy author who couldn't come up with anything better than a physic.

    27. This is the first book I have read by this author and it won't be my last. I really enjoyed this book. I you think you know who did it you are wrong. He keeps you guessing right until the very end. Lots of twists and turns to keep you wanting more.

    28. 3.5 actually, a fair read but the secrets and murder were kind of obvious, and the romances weren't that fascinating. Liked the characters, but most of them were fairly sketchy. The genealogy angle, detecting details and patterns, works. I'll probably read the next book if there is one.
