This thread covers fiction (as well as nonfiction). It's a good place to look for good genealogy-related fiction titles...
In full disclosure, I am the author of this work. :) It was fueled by my own passion for researching my own family's geneaology.
I read and liked Death on the Family Tree by Patricia Sprinkle, but was less enthused about the second book in the series and never continued after that. G.G.Vandergriff's Tangled Roots was too much romance and not enough mystery for my taste.
This is probably one of the best books you will read in a year. Beautifully written. Not a fluffy love story and it will grab your attention from the beginning.
I look forward to more from this Canadian author.
Edited to try to get the touchstones to work.
A good set of books, if you like historical war-and-peace multigenerational family stories that are intelligently written, is Elswyth Thane's Williamsburg series beginning with Dawn's Early Light and ending with Homing. There is a strong thread of genetic memory in the last few books. There are some rather dated societal (not to mention racial) attitudes but the books give you an excellent feel for the times and each book has a family tree diagram to help you keep everyone straight.
There's a detailed read-along of the Cheysuli series at Tor.com that's not quite done, one book left to go: http://www.tor.com/tag/the-cheysuli-reread/
