“Tracing Invisible Threads” is a lovely opposites-attract romance with very little angst. There’s also a small mystery that needs to be solved.
Eleanor is a photojournalist who goes back home to Melbourne after her father has a medical episode. While home, she discovers some old negatives and takes them to be analyzed. At the State Library she meets Alexa, the picture collections manager. Eleanor and Alexa are both attracted to each other but both have reasons for not wanting to develop a relationship. They decide to work together to figure out the mystery behind the photos Eleanor brings to Alexa. They end up spending a lot of time together while hunting for answers and grow closer.
This was a very slow-paced story with very little happening for long stretches of time. I thought the mystery was interesting but not so interesting that it took as long as it did for everything to be figured out. There were a lot of times the story lagged and I found myself taking lots of breaks while reading. There were also parts that were repetitive where the information was found out and then retold all over again to side characters, which became tedious as a reader over time.
There’s also some back and forth with Alexa about whether she wants to really pursue a relationship or not. This got boring after a while and as soon as she decided against pursing Eleanor, she would get jealous over something or someone in Eleanor’s life.
Saying that, I did enjoy this more than not. It is wonderfully written and as an American, it was enjoyable to hear about some of the history of Australia. I also thought it was fun to get some behind the scenes of the State Library. It sounds like a place I’d love to visit if I ever make it out that way.
Recommended for fans of low angst, slow-paced stories.
I loved the mystery within this story. I adore it when a romance has another element – and a fascinating one at that. This story really kept my attention. I was as keen to find out about the people in the old photographs. And I was intrigued as to why Helen had them with her. The Melbourne setting was a big plus for me. I got to know more about its history, the people who lived there in the early days, and the outlying areas around the city. It’s a joy to read a book from places we don’t always get to read about. I loved the two main characters. They sparked off of each other and became something more when they were together. Alexa’s Grandmother, Grace was a brilliant character. So full of life. A great story.
I was given this ARC to review.
I really enjoyed the story – the characters were interesting and engaging. The setting Melbourne was really interesting and the author shared some historical information. I would recommend this story.
I was provided with an ARC of this book in return for a fair and honest review.
The story has great supporting character. Most notably, Alexa’s loving and comical grandmother. They face bumps along the way but the story is full of mystery and passion.

The State Library Victoria is one of my favourite locations and it was refreshing to view this beautiful Melbourne landmark and experience the story's narrative through the eyes of Eleanor, a documentary photographer.
At the Library, Eleanor meets Alexa, the picture collections manager who has a great passion for her work, a penchant for classic cars and a flair with offbeat clothing.
I enjoyed spending time with both these smart, loveable women. It is a story with substance and I enjoyed it very much.
