Banished Threads by Kaylin McFarren

Banished Threads (Threads #3)Book Description:
After arriving in England on a much-deserved vacation, Rachel Lyons and Chase Cohen are quickly forced into becoming crime-stopping sleuths when a collection of priceless Morris Graves’ paintings turns up missing at her uncle's gallery. Determined to clear him of all wrong-doing and free his accused granddaughter, the treasure-hunting duo risk not only their relationship but also the life of their unborn child when it’s discovered that someone is determined to destroy the Lyons’ family by any means necessary.

My Thoughts:
This is the third book in this series by this author.  That being said, I didn't feel lost in it.  Rachel and Chase are in England on vacation.  Rachel really wants her uncle to approve of Chase but things don't go as planned.  Family secrets have a way of not staying buried and while there, some of Rachel's family secrets come to light that even she didn't know.  Chase uses his sleuthing abilities to help the family and hopefully get into their good graces.  
I really liked the characters the author brought in.  I felt for Rachel having second thoughts about marrying Chase even though she is carrying his baby.  Her uncle's marriage of convenience is an interesting point.  The gallery theft and Sloan's disappearance are intriguing and you wonder if she is kidnapped or if she is responsible for the theft.  The book starts a bit slow but picks up the pace to where you do not want to put it down, even when it ends!
This was a 4/5 for me.  I really want to go back and read the previous 2 books in the series and see what little snippets that I pick up that are mentioned in this book.

Thank you to the author/publisher for the review copy of this book (via PUYB).  I received this book in exchange for an honest review and the opinions stated above are 100% mine.
