#BookReview: Banished Threads by Kaylin McFarren

Banished ThreadsReviewer: Annie

I received a review copy.


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’s paintings are 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 not only endangers 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 fortuneteller?


What a fun and exciting book to read!  This story got interesting with each turn of the page. It offers the reader everything you want in a good murder mystery…. Love, Secrets, Lies, Deception and Murder.

I was so intrigued with each character’s individual story, and I think that may have been what I enjoyed the most. There were plot twists throughout the book that just keep you wanting more. You never see coming.

Rachel Lyons and Chase Cohen are stunning characters, and their family is just as exciting.

Kaylin McFarren is a very talented writer, and she delivers a book that will definitely keep you on the edge of your seat with suspense.

This is the third book in a series, and I have to say that Kaylin McFarren did a wonderful job making this book good enough to stand alone. 

Now I need to go back and read parts 1 and 2!
