What would you do if you learned that your whole life had been a lie? Who do you trust? Is the story your being told even true? These are the questions that Bailey must face as she enters a journey to discover who she really is. Captured Lies is a very edge of your seat sort of book. It takes you through the loss of who Bailey believed was her mother to discovering that there are a ton of secrets surrounding her very existence. This is a action packed thriller that leaves you wanting to find the answers just as badly as Bailey (the main character of the book). I was totally enthralled with this book and read it as if it were my life that needed to be discovered. Maggie Thom writing style had me setting up and taking notice. I believe I will be reading more of her books. Captured Lies was most definitely my cup of tea and I hope it will be yours as well!

I enjoyed Captured Lies by Maggie Thom.

It was a fascinating tale of a stolen baby, many people who had secrets to keep and a bit of romance thrown in as well.

There were a ton of characters to keep straight and at times I skimmed parts as there were just so many details about all of the shady characters. There were also times where things weren't explained or some of the early conversations between Guy and Bailey were drawn out and a bit hard to read.

However overall it was a good book and the end was satisfying.

This was a fast moving story, fast and driving. It simply hit the ground running, and was so thrilling and engaging, I couldn’t put the book down. The author managed to keep the reader in suspense until the end. Here was grown up woman, who lived a life not her own, a tough and unsettling life with a mother, not her own. Only she didn’t know that. Then the bombshell! Someone wants her dead. How can Bailey, or should we call her Cassidy, who lived a life of poverty, constantly on the move, with nothing to attract anyone’s envy, possibly have offended anyone, enough to want her dead?

Her antagonists, Geoffrey and Mr. Lund, two vipers, each for his own hidden agenda, send out killers after her. Guy takes her on the run, cross country, and finds himself a marked man too. He too will have to die, if only to get through him to Bailey. The two men were despicable. No saving grace at all, but fate has a way of intervening when the question is between then good and the bad.

This book could be a best seller but for those glitches that mar good stories; the author’s penchant for saying,“more then,” instead of “more than,” and some others encountered here and there. There also seemed to be lost scenes from the book when the story seemed to have skipped ahead with no clear explanation as to what happened during those lost scenes. I noticed this on two occasions. On the whole, it was a great read.

When Bailey's mother dies quite unexpectedly, she very quickly learns her life was not all it seemed. As a child she had been hauled from one town to another. Her mother was always on the run; always hiding from something - but from what?
Maggie Thom does an excellent job of keeping the reader in suspense as the story slowly unfolds. With the help of a private investigator she finds that she is not who she thinks she is and there are people out there determined to stop her learning the truth.

First, I want to say that I received this book as a gift from the author. I moderate a book of the month club that features independent authors and this was one among my reading list for that book club. I got this book during a rather rough time a few weeks ago and Maggie has been a doll about how long it's taken me to read her book. I just want to say I am grateful for indie authors like Maggie who have been the epitome of good-people to me.

4.5 stars

Captured Lies is a classic suspense with a great story that will keep you on your toes until the revelations at the end. I almost hate to use this word, but the mystery and suspense of the story was certainly convoluted enough to keep me guessing about the antagonists. I can honestly say that I have less experience with suspense than I have with most other genres, but I was thoroughly captivated by her writing style and story line.

Bailey is a bad-ass chic trying for a normal life amid her mother's insistent rules that she garner zero attention in her life. When her mother dies, Bailey begins to unravel the truth behind a lifetime of living hand-to-mouth, moving unexpectedly, and rules that have never made sense to her. With the unwanted help of Guy, a private detective who finds himself on a more dangerous gig than he expected, Bailey works through the emotional and mental trauma of losing her mother, discovering the lies surrounding her life, and working out how to live on the other side of the mess her mother left her.

This is the first book in the Caspian Wine series and as soon as I get my reading list down, I will be getting the next. Maggie Thom is an indie author that will draw you into her story and keep you until you finish--no bookmarks required.

This is the debut novel for this writer, and indicates that she could be off to a promising start, with a little tweaking.

The novel is filled with a list of suspects as long as your arm, in fact for many people the list may be too long to keep track of. This leads to a story that is surrounded by such a tangled web, it becomes unbelievable. The characters are slightly more believable; although some of them do push the edge of that envelope in being so bad it would have been nice to have had some back-story to base their actions on. The main female lead is a little wishy washy, in my opinion, given the hardships she had been through whilst growing up. I felt that this aspect of the lead character could have been used in a more productive way to infuse her with a good strong willed and decisive personality. The male lead was charming in the sort of way you would regard your eccentric uncle; he's fun to be around but after a while he becomes a bit of a bore. More time spent on character development would, again in my opinion, have added so much more depth to this novel.

The Author describes her books as"suspense, murder, mystery and romance all wrapped up in one..." fortunately there is a lack of romance in this novel, although it is hinted at in areas but, thankfully never developed. As for the suspense, yes it's there as is the murder and the mystery, but again so under-developed that, at times I felt I was reading an episode of a Mystery Machine cartoon. One of the main suspects, after remaining in the dark and unnamed, for quite a few chapters is, for no apparent reason, suddenly revealed. This really took the expectation of suspense out of the rest of the novel for me, which was so disappointing.
