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?

The cover of “Bloodline” intrigued me. My favorite genre to read is medieval so I figured that’s what the stories focus was. The prologue grabbed me from the start and then Chapter 1 said “Present Day.” I am not going to lie, I was a bit disappointed, but that feeling didn’t last long. Kathi sucks you right into the story from the first page. I could not put it down and read the whole thing in one night. Not much sleep happened. The story is about your average American named Skye who runs into a handsome man while serving him as a flight attendant. Skye and Jack’s life keep colliding until they join the same team to unravel the mystery of where her aunt is and why someone would kidnap her. It is a fast-paced suspense novel with a subtle love story woven throughout. I kept trying to figure out who was the good guys and who were the bad guys and in the end, it twisted so much, I was unprepared for how the characters played out. A very well written page turner, I just wish the ending had a few more pages to go to wrap it up better in my mind but isn’t that how a good book always ends… wanting more of the story? I would love to see a sequel!! Grab your copy today!
