I see a movie in this book and the review is great. Forget rushing to the next chapter, I am rushing through each paragraph to see what happens. I don't believe I will be able to put this book down after reading your review. I would call it an action thriller instead of a romance and I'm already thinking about who will play the lead role. Can't wait.

I like that you mentioned that the characters are all damaged. This leads to lots of complexities that can make interesting reading. I also found the cover was very well done and really got my attention. I don't know if this would be something I would read, but it does look like it has a good storyline. Thanks for the great review!

This is a no brainer for. It wasn't just about the thrill but the way the writer was able to ente the readers head and keep them glued to every details. To me this is a fantastic piece of work. Kudos to the author.

This book has been book of the day before. I did decide to purchase the book this time. I liked the idea that the characters could face some difficult issues like the death of Rachel's father Sam.
I have added this one to my reading list.
Great review that helped with my decision.

Rachel has to steal a priceless relic from her ex so she could save her kidnapped brother. This is very intriguing. From reading the review alone, I knew this would be perfect for me. Thank you!

The review makes this novel very tempting. I'm especially glad to hear that author is able to include information about diving and salvaging without alienating a reader; that sort of thing can usually make or break a novel for me. Thanks for the great review!

Being a fan of Clive Cussler gives me a boost in the direction of this novel. The review tells me that it will be a good read because the plot is thick and the characters multifaceted.

Severed Threads is a great book, and your review has certainly done it justice. If I had not already decided to read this book, your very well-written review would definitely make me want to read it. Well done!!!??????
