Twisted Threads was so well written, structured and developed It definitely made me use my brain to keep up with everything and try to solve the puzzle, so if you are looking for a lose yourself sort of book this is not for you It is suspensful from the get go, and sucks you in so that you have to finish it and know the whole story.
This is the story of Akira Sota and how she is a total bad ass Even the first few chapters showed just how much of a bad ass she is and it just got fast paced from there I loved the setting of the story, I loved all of the characters, and I loved how it had every single type of thing I could want in a book It had the romance although at times I was a little confused by the side conversations and realized some things might have been explained in previous books but it definitely made me want to go back from the very beginning and them all , it has mystery an intrigue, and a murder In order to rid herself of the life that she knows a geisha she must complete one last task and that is to find out who killed her masters sister In order to do that, she must go on a cruise how fun and meet with the people who have been identified as the murderer s It is when she becomes close well too close if you want to keep it real to the couples nephew Devon that she might not accomplish what she has been tasked with But could it lead to other things You will have to red to find out I give this book 4 stars because while it can be read as a standalone, it might have been all the better if I had started from the beginning I enjoyed the book and would definitely recommend you picking up a copy and meeting everyone Twisted Threads,by KAYLIN MCFARREN, is about a gal named Akira She used to be a geisha but is now an assassin Her boss orders her to go on a cruise ship to determine who was responsible for his sister s death She is assigned to investigate a couple, Paul and Sara Lyons, one of whom is the murderer The couple is accompanied on the trip by their nephew, Devon Akira uses Devon as her ticket to get information about his aunt and uncle.
There is a lot of action in this book several murders, romance, and unexpected twists For me, the pace of the novel was moderate I think if it were not for the reasons I hate this book see below the pace would work better.
I hate this book for several reasons Akira mentions that the novel Memoirs of a Geisha is a fictional story Well, not really It is historical fiction Yes, the geisha in the book is fictional However, the author based the character on a former geisha he knows I also hated the lack of character development in this book However, this is book four in the Threads series, and I have not read the previous installments I am the type of reader who prefers to read a series in order so I can develop relationships with the characters I did not bond with or like any of the characters in this book My other reason for hating this book is that there is no history or mention of the kunoichi A kunoichi is a Japanese assassin I am also interested in how Akira was trained She is described in the book as small, yet she carries two men out into the woods to bury them On the other hand, she struggles to get her boyfriend on the bed It was odd to me that a kunoichi would have that problem Again, this is the fourth book of the series, and I have not read the earlier books, so it s possible that this information was already mentioned These are just my personal views Other readers might like this book I would recommend it to mystery and romance lovers The only reason I give this book four stars is because of the author s biography about her dad, who passed away I am always a daddy s girl My heart went out to the author Many folks love this book, so you should read it to see for yourself.
Akira Hamada has an enemy Kaito Mitsui Kaito is also her employer he s turned her into an assassin.
Kaito had a sister who was murdered He wants Akira to be on the cruise ship where his sister s murderer will be There are two suspects so who murdered Maito s sister and who will Akira turn her gun sights on Twisted Threads is the fourth and the last book in Threads series I have not read the previous three books, and I most likely would have liked this one better if I had There is a bit of romance involved, some suspense, even a bit of comedy here and there.
