Blog Tour: Captured Lies by Maggie Thom- Review & Giveaway

Captured Lies
By Maggie Thom
Publication Date- October 17th, 2012

She was kidnapped not once but twice and now someone wants her dead because of it....
Her life was a lie!
Bailey knew her upbringing wasn’t normal but she’s worked hard to stabilize her life. At 29, she finally has a good business, a stable home; her life is miles from that of her childhood. Then suddenly her mother dies, leaving a gaping hole and a discovery that they may not even be related. If Guy, the private investigator is to be believed, her life is a lie. Using the skills she learned on the streets, Bailey travels back through a sketchy and dangerous past, to find answers. Dodging bullets, staying ahead of those who want her dead and convincing Guy she can do it alone, are making it difficult to discover not only the secrets of her mother’s past but that of a family claiming she is theirs.
Everyone seems to have a story... but who’s telling the truth? And who wants her dead? Is Guy part of the solution? Or part of the problem? To discover the facts, she’ll have to untangle a web of deceit, lies, and secrets, dating back over thirty years.

About The Author-

Maggie Thom took the challenge and leapt off, leaving a full time twenty year career in management, to write full time. After her initial panic that she might need a straight jacket,
she published her first book Captured Lies, October 2012. And now is excited to release her
second novel, Tainted Waters, April, 2013. Her third book, Deceitful Truths (sequel to Captured
Lies) available fall of 2013. An avid reader and writer her whole life, she decided to break the
monotony of wishing to be an author by making it happen. Married to her best friend, she is
learning that humor, love and patience help her navigate her way through her twins’ teen years.
Her motto: Escape to read and Read to escape. "Maggie Thom writes a fast paced thriller laced
with romance that keeps the reader interested and on edge!" InDtale Magazine


I've had my eye on this book since I first heard we were doing a tour for it. But seeing how I am a complete airhead, I had forgotten to sign up. I know. I'm the brightest bulb on the Christmas tree. I've heard. BUT, about a week before the tour started, my amazing co-blogger Mel reminded my stupid self about the tour. I had high expectations for this.

I have to say when I have 'high expectations', I am disappointed about 85% percent of the time. I usually get myself too amped up and then the book falls flat (it's no one's fault but my own). Captured Lies, however, did NOT disappoint at all.

This book is riddled with twists and drama, and it keeps you on the edge of your seat the entire time. I was downright abusing my Kindle with how quickly I was turning the pages, and no matter how many times I thought I'd had it figured out, I was wrong. I LOVE THAT.

I have to say I think Thom has a very promising future in this business. This is a fabulous debut novel and I highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for a good romantic thriller :)
