I was given an advanced reading copy of this book for an honest review. Blood Ties explores the interesting worlds of online genealogy and dating. Roselyn Ridge is a single woman who is half-heartedly looking for love on an online dating website. Her best friend, Laura, is actually the one pushing Roselyn into the online dating scene.

She’s much more interested in finding out all she can about her biological father and cousins she’s related to on his side of the family who live in Hawaii. Readers

Is there some connection? She’s been trying to find out who ...more
