Buried Threads by Kaylin McFarren is a 2013 Creative Edge Publication. I was provided a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Rachel Lyons and her partner Chase Cohen accept a contract to recover a lost priceless treasure in the Sea of Japan. However, upon arriving in Tokyo, they soon discover their mission is more complicated and dangerous than they originally believed. In order to prevent a natural disaster from striking Japan and killing millions, they must form an alliance with yakuza members, dive into shark-infested waters and recover three ancient cursed swords...before time runs out.
Rachel and Chase are experts in treasure hunting. Their current assignment takes them to Japan.  When they arrive they realize they have gotten more than they bargained for. The sword they seek carries a curse that could pretty much wipe out Japan. Desperate, they make alliances with some very dangerous people. 

Rachel and Chase have more than a working relationship. They are bonded in many ways and must lean on one another during the most tense adventure they have ever experienced. By tense, I mean TENSE! 

The Japanese culture is very interesting. I don't know a great deal about Japanese traditions but I believe the author did her homework. There is a mystery, adventure, crime, a touch of the paranormal and romance. Once I started this book I just couldn't stop reading it. There is a lot going on and you will have to put aside any distractions and really pay attention. This book is quite unlike any other book you may encounter in the mystery or paranormal genre. I applaud the author's research and the ability to combine all the elements she used into one absorbing read. One thing I should point out is that this book does contain a number of erotic sex scenes. (That is not a criticism- it's just information I thought I should pass along). 

Overall, I enjoyed this one and would recommend it to mystery suspense readers, paranormal romance readers and those that like action adventure. I give this one an A ( 4 stars)
