A valuable art collection disappears, turning a treasure-hunting duo into crime-stopping sleuths committed to vindicating family members in Kaylin McFarren's action-packed suspense novel, Banished Threads.
While vacationing at the stately Cumberforge Manor in Bellwood, England, Rachel Lyons and Chase Cohen attend an elegant dinner party hosted by her uncle, Paul Lyons, and his aristocratic wife, Sara. Before the evening ends, a priceless collection of Morris Graves' paintings is stolen from her uncle's popular gallery, throwing all suspicion onto his wife's missing granddaughter.
Determined to clear Sloan Rafferty's name and, in the process, win Paul's favor, Chase scours the countryside looking for answers. In his absence, the police accuse Rachel's uncle of an unsolved murder, and secrets surrounding her grandmother's death and the deaths of Sara's former husbands turn his wife into the most likely suspect.
With the true villains hell-bent on destroying Paul Lyons and his family, solving both crimes while ensuring her uncle's freedom endangers not only Rachel's life but that of her unborn child. Will Chase save them before the kidnappers enact their revenge, or will the ultimate price be paid, as predicted by a vagabond fortune-teller?

A very suspenseful mystery with theft, kidnapping, murder, weird family dynamics, multiplying suspects and more. Yet somehow it still comes across as more romance than mystery. Set in England, there is plenty of angst and very engaging characters. Listed as a book three, I thought it was just fine as a stand alone.
I prefer the audios, and this one is voice interpreted by Valerie Gilbert who always has a way of drawing the reader in and engaging a sense of need to read for just a little longer.
