in Reading Order Guide:

<— This just might be one of those “absorbing” reads that I love to lose myself in (sounds angsty! and now I’m told super twisty!!), and there are THREE books ready and waiting.

Recommended by so many in our group!:

Jamie: “By a Thread by RL Griffin is on sale … and Tension the second book of the series was just released… This series is amazing!”

Becky: This series was amazing! 5 stars for me, no question.

Kandace: Yes! I read it. I really enjoyed the series because it was different from the usual. Nice change of pace.

Jennifer: I read all 3. They were very good. Lots of twists and angst.

Janet: Loved this series, one of my favorites

Renate: Very intense, twists I didnt see coming…(I know you like that Maryse ;-) )

Susan: Yes, yes, yes. really enjoyed it.

Jeannie: I read the first two – loved them both! Plot twist I did not see coming at all, and I can usually guess what is coming next. I definitely recommend this series.

Jamie: I’ve read all three and loved them.

Since this recommendation, book #3 was just released, too!

About book #1:

Stella’s future was set, and it was a bright one. She was engaged to a man she adored, and was headed to law school in the fall. Tragically, her perfectly planned future ends just as it was beginning.

With no ties to family or friends, Stella finds herself alone in a new city, spiraling out of control. Her typical day comes to a close with her passed out on the floor, sometimes clothed.

Luckily, her new roommate, essentially a stranger, is dead set on getting Stella past her grief and back to functioning within society. Putting one foot in front of the other, she climbs up from the bottom of a bottle. Even with all her progress, Stella walks through life unfeeling, numb. Defiant, she sends out warning signals for the world to keep away. But, is that what she really wants?

With the steadfast help of a few tight knit friends, she gradually begins to feel again. She starts to savor the flavor of food again; lets herself notice how the handsome bartender glances at her. Still, after allowing herself a fling, she wonders if she will ever be able to let go of her shattered past, fully enjoy the present, or get over what she thought would be her perfect future with the man who destroyed her heart.

The By a Thread series is impeccable. They are emotional, heart wrenching, lovely, fun, and absolutely cry worthy. Put them on your TBR now…MUST READ!

Absolutely loved the series. RL is able to place you into the story and allow you to feel what that the characters are feeling. This will definitely take your emotions on a roller coaster ride but it is a MUST READ!

Can the last one be read as a standalone?
