I'd like to pretend that I'm too mature to relish the revenge fantasy of running into an old ex when feeling gorgeous, successful, and in love... but honestly, is anyone that evolved? In the past I've enjoyed Gin when she sticks to violence and skips the emotional baggage, but BY A THREAD was a delicious blend of both. I loved the elemental twist that Estep threw in to keep Gin on her toes, and the catharsis of Gin and Donovan finally confronting their feelings for each other was a definite guilty pleasure. I think I would have liked this story all the more if it had ended two chapters sooner with Gin's elegant and understated gesture, ending after the final confrontation made it hard to see a happily ever after for a supporting character I had grown fond of.
