Blog Tour: Review- Tainted Waters by Maggie Thom

He didn’t commit suicide but who’s going to believe her...

Frustrated at being fired from her latest job and overwhelmed by her consolatory family, Sam decides to move to the family’s cabin at the lake. A place she hasn’t been since her dad committed suicide there twenty years before. Or did he? Snooping is something she’s good at but someone seems to be taking offense to her looking too closely at what has been happening at the lake. What she discovers is shocking. Now she must uncover what’s real and what’s not. All that she learned growing up, may be false. Keegan who has recently moved to the area to finish his latest book is also trying to find out if his grandfather, who’d passed away ten years before, died of natural causes or was murdered? The descendants of the four families who own the land around the lagoon are dying off. Since Sam and Keegan are the only ones questioning the deaths, they find themselves working together to seek the truth. Are people being murdered? Who would benefit from their deaths? Why would there be barricades and armed guards at the north end of the lake? To stay alive, Sam and Keegan must find the answers and convince others, before more people are killed... including them.

After reading Thom's "Captured Lies", I had very high hopes for "Tainted Waters". This usually leads to disappointment for me, especially when I know the author is capable of awesomeness. I have to admit I was a little nervous to read this book, knowing how much I enjoyed her first novel.

Thankfully, Thom continues on her roll of being amazing. Just like before, this book is filled with twists and suspense, and even a little romance. ;) 

Tainted Waters is a fast-paced novel-- I found every turn of the page had you believing you knew what was happening, and, no, no you don't. I don't care how right you think you are, you're not, because Thom is a genius who deserves all the awards in the world for BOTH of her novels. I highly recommend this AND Captured Lies to everyone who happens upon this review. You will not regret it!

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
