Akira Hamada is driven by past failure. Two years earlier, she had a chance to kill her greatest enemy - Kaito Mitsui. Instead, the Yakuza boss forced her to become an assassin in his employ. Now, Akira carries out the bloody business of the notorious crime syndicate and hates herself more each day.
When Mitsui hears that his sister’s murderer will be on the cruise ship Starfish, he immediately tasks Akira with eliminating the man once and for all. This is what Akira has trained for, but a series of strange events on the ship tests her resolve and shows her a way to redemption.
Devon Lyons, on the other hand, has nothing to do with assassins. He’s merely accompanying his aunt and uncle, Sara and Paul Lyons, on a free cruise.
Little does he know that the two are the true targets of the charming Japanese tourist he has just met! Akira knows that either Sara or Paul is the killer but doesn’t know which one. She hopes seducing the handsome Devon will lead to better intel, but she is surprised to find herself trusting him. And soon, the pair finds themselves fighting for their lives on the high seas.
Wow!!! I was amazed with this book with all of the twists and turns it it had. I have recently discovered this author and think she is greatly talented. The story she weaves is full of many twists and turns with everyday people from different cultures. I loved this story and thought the narration was spot on. This book is number 4 in the series and has characters from book 2 returning. It is a standalone listen. I requested this review copy audiobook and have voluntarily written this review. i will definitely look for more books by this talented author and narrator in the future.
From the very beginning I was hooked. Thrilling love story with all the psychos added in. A twist at every corner. Leaves you guessing u til the very end.

A great audiobook, very nicely narrated by Natalie Naudus.
The story itself was both funny and thrilling to me. Funny because it is hilarious when three assassins sit next to each other during supper on a cruise ship and try to ,act normal' while you know they want each other deadly. Thrilling it was because there are unexpected twists and turns and it is just a great story and you want to know how it continues.
I had great fun listening to the book and I can recommend it.
This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.
What did you love best about Twisted Threads?
The relationship between Akira and Devon was intense and left you wondering if they would end up together or not, especially with so many secrets between them.
What other book might you compare Twisted Threads to and why?
It has the romantic sizzle of a Lucy Leroux book, intrigue of a Lisa Jackson murder-mystery and a collection of interesting, twisted characters reminiscent of an Agatha Christie novel. No single book compares.
What about Natalie Naudus’s performance did you like?
Loved her voice and the emotion she evoked.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
Simply loved it.
