I enjoyed this story. The idea behind the book and even one of the characters (Aver) were really good, but it took me forever to get into it - it just seemed so slow, no matter what was going on.

I am interested in reading the next book in the series, though, because there were some good parts and I would like to see where the story goes from here.

Note: I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

Why You Should Buy It

The red-thread theory isn’t something new, but Mitchell provides a unique spin on the idea that we are all connected. And the romance in the book isn’t cliche — it is something real and heart-wrenchingly beautiful.

I got this book free from Story Cartel in exchange for a fair and honest review.

Stacey Mitchell has managed to write a book that is full of interest, situations and fun. How she has written this had me laughing out loud on more than one occasion with the interplay between Aver and Lily. One of the best parts for me is that Lily was 'normal' - well, as normal as you can be when you keep getting struck by migraine type headaches, see red threads coming from people's chests and demons.

Lily has a s

It took me a little while to get into this book, not gonna lie. I can't quite put my finger on why, but there was just something about it at the beginning that didn't jive with me.

What I can tell you is that by the end of the book I was in my "I'll eat when I finish one more chapter ... " mode, so whatever it was didn't last.

A different kind of paranormal romance, Red Threads was interesting. And I always feel bad when I call a book interesting. I fell like it's the same as saying someone has a

As a first novel I must commend Mitchell on a fabulous story. Now I'm not normally the type that would really get into a weird paranormal plot that included anything close to being called a "demon". Somehow, though, it works. I'm not sure I'd call it "believable" in the way your run-of-the-mill crime drama might play out but it's not so off the wall that it's freaky.

Lily leads a nice, normal life with a job she enjoys and a long-term boyfriend. A freak incident sparks concern when she sees red t

I enjoyed this book about Lily, a "Fateliner", which is a new kind of paranormal character for me. I do read a lot of paranormal stuff, so I like it when something a little bit different than what I usually read comes along. This one filled the bill on that nicely. I liked the way the author developed the "world" of the novel, and I have to admit that I'm never disappointed when it gets a little demonic! The action of the novel was also well-written. I recommend this as a good (but not great) re ...more

I would definitely recommend this book. In the beginning it is very cliché and you think, (or at least I did) that you know was is going to happen, but then the unexpected happens. And when you think about it, you realize it was the right thing. I liked it, but I would have loved some more details. I can't wait to read nr.2 :))

I rather enjoyed this light-hearted romance with a supernatural bent. The main character is likeable and believable and the author has a keen sense of humour that is well-communicated. I look forward to reading the next instalment!

I am a tea drinker and history geek who lives in south Wales. I love reading, being outdoors, cooking, and stand-up comedy—but I don't like bananas and insects.

I have been writing stories ever since I could hold a pen. I have a degree in Egyptology, and I love writing so much that I even enjoyed my university coursework.

Red Threads is my first novel (but will be the first of many).
