Publisher's Summary

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?

Fast paced

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.

So many twists!

This is my third book by this author that I have listened to and I must say that I really enjoyed it. The author weaves so many twists into the book. I was really surprised by what direction many of them took. I thought the narrator was also able to perform many characters with great emotions, and did wonderful with the suspense. The main characters in this book were from books one and two, but this book is a standalone listen and has minor references to the other stories. I highly recommend this book and series. The author does a great job with the imagery too!

Disappointed in the story.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Sympathetic characters.

Has Banished Threads turned you off from other books in this genre?

I didn't like the characters. It made little difference to me what happened to them.

Which character – as performed by Valerie Gilbert – was your favorite?

Ms. Gilbert was the only good thing about the book. She was fantastic!!! She really brought the characters to life. It's not her fault I didn't like any of them.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Banished Threads?

The scene with the psychiatrist after the party. I felt it was pretty unnecessary & too long.

Any additional comments?

I just didn't like the book. The story line was okay. I just didn't seem to care what happened to any of them.

Great Mystery

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review..

Really enjoyed the narration by Valerie Gilbert, she did a great job.

I haven't read or listened to the other books in the series, but it seemed fine as a stand alone book.

It was a good mystery with a few twists and turns.

Okey-ish

I did not care for the narration at all, it was a bit too robotic for me and had strange pacing.
The story gets a bit repetitive after 3 books and if it was more of the same from something amazing it would not be bad. I do feel like this book was a bit too overcrowded with plot twists and I found it hard to connect with that characters most of the time.

Mixed views

I had mixed views about this audiobook. The narrator I thought did a great job in voicing the characters and I wouldn't mind listening to her in other audiobooks.
The book I found to be really slow going before things started to get interesting. There is a few twist and turns. Part of the ending was a bit of a surprise because I was not expecting it and the author left it there. It would have been interesting to see what the character would have done.
There is some profanity and sexual content which I must admit I was not expecting.

Banished Threads

I liked this book more than the previous 2, but it is still not my cup of tea. The narration was better. The story just seems to be the same thing over and over again though-the only exception is location. I am going to finish the series, but I have tempered my expectations.

This book was given to me for free at my request for my voluntary and unbiased review.

almost as beautiful as the cover

for a mystery book I think I will say the book was good overall I had some tiny issues with it but overall the book was great in my opinion of course it's my opinion the book could have been a little bit less and I will explain myself sometimes the story is too captivating it's not a bad thing but sometimes you're feeling it's too much again the book was great and maybe because the book was so captivating I couldn't go to sleep and stop the book I will pay for it today at work but I really think if the book was a little bit less it would be more but the book was almost perfect for me at least
