The author begins this second book in the Threads series with an appropriate quote:
“Some people come into our lives, leave footprints in our hearts, and we are never ever the same.”
When it comes to the characters of Rachel and Chase, readers will find the two of them leaving those footprints. The character development of Rachel and Chase is that strong, with the dialogue throughout the book authentic in propelling the story. Readers will find them so realistically portrayed that they will come to care about them as if they were part of their lives. Although the second book of a series, a major strength of this novel is its stand-alone quality. If readers never read Severed Threads to meet Rachel and Chase, they will come to know them well in Buried Threads fully understanding the new story that is presented. Of course, at the story’s conclusion, readers may have the desire to go back in time to the first book to know more of the two as they wait anxiously for the third book’s publication to know even more.
After accepting a contract to recover a lost treasure in the Sea of Japan, Rachel and Chase discover that this job also involves more, with many lives at stake. The story begins with Kenji Ota and Takashi Bekku discussing Satoru Yamada hiring the American company, setting an appropriate mysterious backdrop that pulls in readers. The conflict escalates with both the circumstances of their contracted recovery, as well as within the personal relationship of Rachel and Chase.
The many levels of this story will engross readers into the world of the Japanese syndicate, a Buddhist monk, and the American couple, while they quickly read to a satisfying conclusion, absorbing the culture within which the story is set along the way.
