    One thought on “The Irish Inheritance”

    1. Thank you to TBC and the author who gave me an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.Well, what can I say? I absolutely loved this book! It was the perfect mix of genealogy and mystery for me, with plenty of twists and turns to keep you guessing. As a keen genealogist myself, I find this type of book fascinating. I love how the smallest of details can unlock old family secrets, bringing to life the people and places of the past. The back and forth between past and present was handled [...]

    2. I liked "The Irish Inheritance" so much, I bought the #2 in the series as soon as I had finished it. Although, as I read, I thought "this is only worth about 2.5 stars", but by the time I got to the delightful twist at the end it was up to 4 (N.B. I reserve 5 stars for really exceptional writing and plot).I have a personal ancestral link to the Easter Rising, so it was great to remind myself of what happened in 1916 in Dublin through Ms Lee's writing. I am also crazy about family history, so the [...]

    3. Jayne Sinclair is an ex-cop with a failing marriage and a new business as a genealogical investigator, she is a woman who once she starts a job doesn't finish till she gets an answer but in the Irish Inheritance she may have bitten off more than she can chew.She is contacted by an American billionaire, a man who also has months to live, a man who has a dying wish. That wish is to find out who he is, literally. Adopted as a child, he wants to find out who he father is and with a couple of pieces [...]

    4. AudioBook Review: Stars: Overall 4 Narration 4 Story 4 Told in dual-perspectives the story of Jayne Sinclair’s first case for an American Billionaire with questions about his own history and ties to Ireland in the early 1920’s, M.J. Lee uses detailed research, descriptive storytelling and a clever heroine with a compelling background to draw us into the story and keep us reading on. While I’ve read many accounts of the Easter Rising in 1921, this perspective of an adopted man searching for [...]

    5. I loved this one! Lots of history about the Easter Rising in Ireland in 1916. A dying American billionaire comes looking for his roots. He hires retired police detective turned genealogist Jayne Sinclair to unravel the mystery but someone is very intent on making she doesn't. This was very compelling story. The only criticism I had was that as a seasoned police woman, Jayne should have been more aware of her surroundings but her failure to recognize the danger she was in was excused by the subpl [...]

    6. Genealogical investigator, Jayne Sinclair, is contacted by an American billionaire who is seeking help in order to trace his father. Adopted at a young age, and with no recollection of his early life, John Hughes is desperate to discover his true identity before he succumbs to the illness that threatens to end his life in the following months. With few clues to help her, the former police detective has to use all of her investigative skills in order to make connections to Ireland’s Easter Risi [...]

    7. I received an ARC of this book from TBC on Facebook in exchange for an honest review.I was a little hesitant to read (and review) this book as I had read a Genealogical Mystery by another author and it really wasn't to my taste. However I have read both of Lee's Shanghai thrillers and really enjoyed them, so I decided to give it a go.I knew very little of the Easter Rising in Ireland during the early 1900's, so I was looking forward to finding out a bit more. In truth there is only enough writte [...]

    8. I would like to thank Helen at TBC and the author for giving me the opportunity to read this in exchange for an honest and open review.This was a crime novel with a difference. I've always been interested in genealogy and combined with my favourite genre, this was a must read.This is the first book I've read by this author but it certainly won't be the last.I was gripped from page one. Even though it moved from past to present, it was very easy to follow.It was a well-researched novel with inter [...]

    9. I absolutely loved this book. Martin Lee has an amazing writing style that flows so smoothly. He transports you to places and you can hear the accents, see the scenery, smell the emotions! A wonderful saga of murder, mystery, war, greed, search for answers! I loved Jayne's tenacity and look forward to her next adventure. Thanks to The Book Club for the opportunity to review. 5 well deserved stars for me!

    10. Very badly written. I hopes the subject matter would be interesting enough to keep me going anyway, but it wasn't presented well and the pace was off. Could have been a nice enough historical mystery if done right. Shame, I thought the Shanghai novels from this author were truly excellent, and am disappointed.

    11. If you like genealogyI like historical detective fiction and this novel combines another inerest: Genealogy. I gave this book 5 stars because I could not put it down until my eyes crossed, and so because I couldn't see to read I then switched it to audio and listened. It is a really good story. So, if you like genealogical fiction, you must give it a try. I will be looking out for more from this author.

    12. My first thought when I finished the book………wow. My second thought…………….Yayy! Should I elaborate more? Sighs…if I must.This book was SO fun. It was certainly original and had me hooked since page one. I couldn’t get enough. The blend of history, mystery, drama, and action was perfect. The characters certainly made the story come to life.It would be so cool to pay someone like Jayne to find uncover the mystery of who my mom's birth parents were. We know some small tidbits (mor [...]

    13. I was given a copy of this book through The Book Club on Facebook in return for an honest review.This is my first review since joining TBC and I have to admit is not the genre that I would normally gravitate to. The idea of a genealogical investigation was an attraction particularly with a historical theme that I had little prior knowledge of, the Irish Easter risings. The story opens in 1922 in Ireland with the killing of a British army officer by a small group of IRA fighters. We then meet our [...]

    14. The Irish Inheritance deals with two timelines. One during the time of the Easter Rising and the Irish War of Independence and the second in 2015 with Jayne's investigation. I'm always on the hunt for genealogical crime fiction since so many mysteries deal with long-buried secrets anyway. This first Jayne Sinclair mystery intrigued me for two reasons: one, that the genealogical investigator was a woman, and two, she is a former police detective. I thought this would make a change from the other [...]

    15. This writer is good, I was wondering all the way through the book how he would pull the story to a sensible credible conclusion. I can say he did do it and it made sense. A great story and I love the type of theme.

    16. I have read previous books by this author and always enjoyed his style of writing, this one sounded incredibly interesting from the genealogy aspect, a subject that interests me so I was curious how he would deal with it.The book covers different eras and that can often be confusing to a reader if it doesn’t flow smoothly. No worries here, the dates and places are clearly stated and it moves at a pace to keep you enthralled. The beauty of this author is his ability to convey the whole situatio [...]

    17. "The Irish Inheritance" - written by M J Lee and published in 2016. Once I saw "Genealogical Mystery" associated with this book I was in. And it turned out to be a really enjoyable mixture of mystery, investigation and of course, genealogical research. Jayne Sinclair, recently retired from the police after the death of her partner, has started a new business and this book follows her attempts to discover the birth parentage of an elderly man who was adopted by an American family as a 4-year from [...]

    18. Lucky for me I was given an advanced copy of this book in return for an honest review. This is now the third book I have read by this author and I would say this is just as good as the other two so it’s five stars from me yet again. Now, the reason why in my opinion this book deserves five stars is because it kept me gripped and wanting to read more and more when I really should have been getting on with other things. Really it was unputdownable as the story developed I wanted to know how this [...]

    19. Bright future and Good searching,she has made the read realI would gladly read more of this author's books. She kept my interest all the way through. Loved the switch backs from the past to the days date.

    20. Terrific book!Very much enjoyed this book. It's fascinating to read about history this way. I really loved switching back and forth between the times. Hopefully this series continues!

    21. Very good readThe story is gripping and regularly jumps between the research work today and actual events back in early 1900,sWell presented and funny about repeated Irish sayings.LOnce started it is difficult to put down.

    22. Who was he??This was the question Jayne was hired to find out from a wealthy dying adopted man. Piecing the story together over almost 100 years JAYNE must solve small puzzles to find the full story all the while being threatened and followed. Very good story

    23. Family history mysteryI enjoyed the mystery and the family history. As a family history researcher as well as a mystery reader, I loved both. Compelling to the end.

    24. I really loved this book. Great writing, filled with mystery and history. I'm looking forward to reading more from this author.

    25. Wonderful bookI loved it! Twists and turns, thrills and chills, lies and truths. The story starts out great and rolls to a fantastic ending. Can't wait to get the next book!

    26. Received from the book club on Fb, enjoyable book written in 2 time frames though not confusing and easy to follow interesting story

    27. My interests include historical fiction, genealogy, and mysteries so this seemed like a good fit. I knew nothing about the Easter Rising of 1916 before reading this so found the descriptions of that time and place especially riveting. I noted how some of the young men seemed particularly naive but drawn in by nationalistic fervor which makes one immediately think of the young people today attracted to extreme viewpoints and actions. It was especially enlightening to read how those young men matu [...]

    28. First in the Jane Sinclair genealogical mysteries and though it took me a bit to get into it I really rather enjoyed it. It's different than your normal mystery series.Jane Sinclair is an ex-detective, but she can't seem to give up the thrill of a mystery as now she uses her sleuthing skills to find ancestors for those who are having problems tracking down a family member. In this one an adopted American billionaire finds that as he is getting close to death he would like to know what happened t [...]

    29. A Heart Wrenching Irish mysteryAs a genealogist and historian, I am part of a culture that always has one foot in the past. As we learn more about our ancestors, their stories are no longer just stories. They are voices deep within us, stirring the blood and helping us understand more about ourselves in this place and time. The Irish Inheritance is such a take. It reveals the passion to uncover truths and the thrill each piece of information brings the researcher, but it also unfolds complex mys [...]

    30. I read the first three books of the Sinclair series. I'd liked this one the best as it describes the events running up to the Irish Revolt which, for me, was kind of an unknown event. The series are a nice combination of genealogical investigations and thriller elements.The books are written in a open and accesable style, making it easy to read and understand. It could have been a 5 star review weren't it for the fact that some themes keep coming back in the storylines of the three books, i.e. t [...]
