The enthralling sequel to the compelling Strand of Faith.
What if your secrets are so dangerous they could destroy the one you love?
Is honesty always the best policy?
Leonie may have run away but Prospero will find her. He loves her and he wants a future with her by his side whatever the consequences. Only when he does find her, he ought to tell her who he really is, outside the monastery. That’ll make her run again. Dare he risk it? But if he doesn’t tell her, someone else may…
Marriage to Prospero is what Leonie wants most and the one thing she knows she can’t have. If he found out what she was really like, what she’d been, what she’d done, he’d despise her and she couldn’t bear that. Better to leave now than live a lie – but it’s harder than she expected. If only…
Gabriel is starting to discover the secrets inherent in Leonie, secrets that not even she knows, secrets that will tear the world apart. And the secrets he is keeping are tearing him apart. How can sacrificing those he loves possibly achieve peace when everything he discovers risks the death of millions?
This is the second book in the choices and consequences series. My review of Strand of Faith (the first book) can be read here.
Thread of Hope picks up exactly where the last book left off, so no time jumps to have to worry about. We further explore the relationship between Perry and Leonie, they are getting to know each other as a couple. Learning to trust each other and let go of previous hurt.
We also see Perry leaving the monastery as he had decided in book 1. This was very sensitively handled. Although he wants to leave, we witness his struggles with leaving his way of life, his foundations and routines. He keeps a very firm grip on his faith though, which is exactly what you would expect.
During this book we start to discover the secrets that all the characters have been keeping and how they interplay. The story is slowly starting to reveal itself.
We see a lot more of Andrew in this book and that pleased me. He’s an interesting character, he’s very selfless but also worldly for someone of his age. His inner demons are worked through in this installment.

Many thanks to Rachel for inviting me onto the tour and to Rachel J Bonner for a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.
Rachel J Bonner is the author of the four book Choices and Consequences series, the first of which, Strand of Faith, is due out in November 2018.
Getting a degree in engineering, followed by a career in accountancy is probably not a conventional path to becoming an author, particularly in paranormal romance. Rachel says that, although accountancy isn’t anything like as boring as everyone thinks, writing is a lot more fun. When not writing, she can be found walking in the beautiful countryside near where she lives, which has influenced much of the scenery in her books, or shooting things with her local archery club. Target shooting only, honest. Nothing to worry about.
She also enjoys swimming, eating chocolate chip cookies and growing aromatic herbs, especially thyme and rosemary. It’s no coincidence that her heroine likes the same things.
