This was an interesting book with a likeable but naive main character. She becomes obsessed with the search for information about her biological family and a serial killer connection. I liked how it really honored the victims, much more than most books or news programs. Worth the read

I am always fascinated by books that explore DNA and previously unknown family connections. This was actually my first that explored a link to a serial killer. The Family Tree by Steph Fullin and Nicole Mabry was a nail-biter for sure! I could not stop turning the pages to get to the explosive ending. Definitely a thrill ride!

"The Family Tree" is an exciting and intriguing story that sucks the reader in from the first page. One of the books that is so hard to stop reading for unimportant things like sleep or work. The protagonists are very well defined and characterized and leave the reader wanting to know more about them, a modern story that combines modern life and old lurking evil in a thrilling and captivating way. Very well thought through plot twists leave the reader hoping for a continuation of this book.
