Synopsis from Kaylin McFarren
Rachel’s mouth sagged. “You mean you’re really a monk? But how’s that possible? You’re not even wearing a robe, and your hair…”
He simply smiled.
 A disturbing prophecy sends a treasure hunting duo on an urgent race to rescue a country in Kaylin McFarren’s heart pounding new novel,  Buried Threads. Full of erotic suspense and wild adventures, this is one trip that readers will never forget!
Rachel Lyons and Chase Cohen work together as the successful owners of a treasure hunting company. But a seemingly simply assignment – to track down a priceless gem that is believed to buried in a shipwreck deep within the Sea of Japan – takes a starling, and dangerous, turn.
Faced with a monk’s dark prophecy that a natural disaster will soon strike Japan, killing millions, Rachel and Chase must embark on the mission of a lifetime in order to uncover the three cursed samurai swords that can avert the catastrophe.
Chaos ensues as their adventure takes them from shark infested waters and creepy caves to haunted hidden tombs and a confrontation with Yakuza gang members.
Time is running out as the prophecy’s day of reckoning draws near. Will Rachel and Chase succeed before disaster strikes?

Book Trailer


     Buried Threads is book 2 in the Thread series. I completely missed that memo this time around and haven't read book one, Severed Threads, yet. But fortunately, I got into this book just fine, so it won't be much of an issue. What a ride this was, I didn't know what to expect with this, but I am definitely a new fan. Buried Threads gives you a bit of everything. McFarren oozes talent and I am super excited for book three in this series.

     I love this story. The buildup and where it goes are very refreshing aspects of the book. It is set in Japan and McFarren does such a great job of describing Japanese culture. I must say, I learned quite a bit. Some of our main characters, Rachel and Chase, visit Japan because they are treasure hunters. They were hired to find a mysterious sword that is said to be very powerful and very expensive. I love the mystery in this book. Someone is killed (someone kind of big) and the mystery is just very refreshing. I love that this book is based in reality, but has hints of paranormal throughout. It really added another element to the book. This story will make you very, very happy.

     I love that we follow three main stories/characters. They are all after something and it was nice seeing how it all comes together and learning the whys of it. I really liked Rachel. She sees fragile, but she is tough as nails. I really connected with her quickly. She works hard for everything and doesn't like being taken advantage of due to her father. Her father leaves behind some interesting surprises that turn Rachel's workd even more topsy-turvy. She already found out that she has been hired by an eccentric monk who reads souls and wants a mystical sword. How much more crazy can it possibly get? Oh, she has no idea. I also really enjoyed Mariko. I wasn't sure about her at first though. She was a geisha whose livelihood pretty much depended a big name gangster named Kenji. I loved seeing her journey in this book. She grew so much. Kenji was scary and yet very sexy. I love that the book showed us things from his point of view as well. He is quite the interesting villain and it was great seeing how his story unraveled as well. Then we have Yuki. She worked with Shinzo and knew a lot more about the treasures than anyone else. Her story adds even more to the book that you won't believe. Oh my goodness, it is beyond insane.

     This book will truly take you on a journey like no other. Everything from goblin sharks to reincarnation with mystery, suspense, mystical elements and some very steamy romance. There is no way you can't find something to love with this book. I am so in love. I can't wait to dive (no pun intended) more into this world with the first book and book three. Don't go into this expecting you are going to have things figured out. You won't have any idea until the very end. Highly recommend this read and it is definitely a favorite for 2013.

Due to the daily spam comments I have been getting lately and to avoid the annoying word verification, Anonymous comments are no more. I do not want bargains on bags, watches, jerseys, boots and other crap. Geez, they could at least spam me with book and movie stuff, I would be somewhat interested LOL! Thank you :D
