Hey guys, this is my first time on here so be nice haha. For those who don’t know me I’m Annabelle and I’m the fun one. Since it’s me and Veronica on here we decided at the end of the review we will put our initials so you can tell who is who. Veronica is on vacation right now so it’s my time to shine 🙂
The Common Thread got four stars from me. Nicole was a very interesting person but I really just wanted to slap her. She was like a little kid stuck in a grown woman’s body. She was very prone to jealousy and if she didn’t get things her way she pouted. I know she grew up with a privileged family and has a great job but that is no reason to make others feel bad or look down on them. Her twin was much better and I loved the fact that she looked out for her kids. I found it funny that they grew up apart but wound up being lesbians. I think Katie having kids not only made her focus and become the adult she is but it made her more caring. I’m glad they had people who looked out for them.
It was very adventurous right from the start I was hooked and I loved it. The things they went through and the fear of not knowing what happens to your kids. Having a crazy person hunt you down and trying to kill you. Then finding out that your not one but you have a double out there who has your face and DNA. That would be a shock for anyone but Katie takes it all in stride. I think she took it better than Nicole did. It was really good and I recompensed it.
Oh my GOD, Teri was so freaking frustrating and I as actually surprised that Mia ended up with her. I though for sure she was going to be able to let Teri go and move on with her life. I found it really interesting the effect Teri had on Mia whether it was conscious or not. All Mia’s girlfriends and lovers after her family moved to Europe looked like Teri. It was almost like they were a filler until the real hing came along and stopped being stupid.
Teri is a total work addict and I was actually surprised when she started to relax around Mia, laugh and have fun. It took some work but she finally stood up to her parents and reconnected with her brother and sister. Mia’s family moving to Europe n the long run was good for her. She made connections she never would have without them. I will say that Pamela needs a big punch in face and I’m glad Teri didn’t go through with the merger.
Got an advance copy from Netgalley for an honest review.
It was a good story. Sera was great and defusing those bombs was awesome sauce. Tor was really irritating to me. I didn't like how she picked her father and money over Sera. If I was ever in that situation I would have picked my lover, no contest, no questions asked. I will say that being a bank manager has made her seem less selfless but she's still a pain in the ass.
I was rooting for Sera the whole way through and I'm really glad she didn't die. I think I would have been upset. It was a great book but the ending was weird. The way it cut off, it was almost like there were words missing.
