Golden Threads by Kay Hooper

I have a confession.

I love to read romance novels. I know, I know, most consider them to be wastes of time with fluffy plots, predictable villains, damsels in distress and bad subplots. But I can’t get enough of them. After reading a good, hard book (Currently I’m taking a break from The Glass Books of the Dream Eaters…man what an unnecessarily wordy book!) there’s nothing more I enjoy than delving into a romance novel.

I’ve had a good run with hard books lately: The Measure of a Man, I Am Not Myself These Days, The Glass Books of the Dream Eaters. So it was about time I delved back into a romance novel. It’s been a while. The last real romance novel I’ve read (I’m not counting books that have romance elements in them, but books billed as romance novels) was Angel’s Fall by Nora Roberts. I needed to dip my toes into the romance pool again.

This time around, I’m reading Golden Threads by Kay Hooper. I’m 50 pages in and what a wonderful read! The set up of the story is a parallel of Rapunzel: What would happen if a woman was isolated, through no fault of her own? What would happen if there was a threat she could not see but knew was out there?

Lara Callahan has come to the small town of Pine Valley to start over and to hide from a past that won’t let her go. Devon Shane has come looking for answers. When the two land the lead roles in the community production of Rapunzel, sparks fly and secrets are unraveled. Who is after Lara? What secrets does Devon hide behind his steely gaze?

Thus far, I have to tell you, I’m having a blast. The Glass Books of the Dream Eaters will take centre stage after this book, so I’m having a grand old time being entertained with a great story, wonderful characters and lots of mystery.

Pick it up and read it. I’m going to hunt down anything by Kay Hooper after Golden Threads. She’s certainly got my attention.
