Book Description

"Maggie Thom writes a fast-paced thriller that is laced with romance and keeps the reader interested and on the edge..." InDtale Magazine
*******************
He jammed his knee into the back of hers. She closed her eyes for a second, trying to will away the pain. “There have been no photos in my life. My mom didn’t believe in them. I… DON’T… HAVE… ANY.”

Grabbing her left arm, he twisted it behind her back which brought her around. He marched her into the living room. In the dim light she could barely see her way and stumbled over the mess on the floor.

“What’s in those bags?”

***********************
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars My cup of tea July 30, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars Suspenseful and keep you on your toes read! January 25, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Capture Lies is a story full of twist and turns. Maggie Thom's characters are well fleshed out and believable. The shear will of Bailey to overcome and survive everything that is thrown at her is admirable, to say the least.
The twist and turns throughout the book keep you on your toes and turning the pages. The humor between Bailey and Guy, the PI hired to find her, is a welcome break in the sometimes violent moments of the book.
Although this is not my normal read, I thoroughly enjoyed Captured Lies and give it 5 stars.

“Thrills And Suspense Keeps The Reader Turning The Pages.”

Bailey Saunders’ world suddenly comes to a jarring stop. The mother she’s known all her 29 years dies, and a stranger shows up telling her she’s not who she thinks she is. If that wasn’t enough, it appears someone is trying to kill her, and the stranger keeps showing up wanting to explain things. But Bailey has always made her own decisions, and doesn’t trust anyone. She’s determined to find out what’s going on, if it kills her – and it just might, if she doesn’t stop to think things through. But that’s not her style, and we are led on a merry-go-round chase of danger and intrigue as she runs for her life

Maggie Thom keeps the suspense thick and heavy, as we follow Bailey’s plight. It all started 29 years ago, when baby Cassidy LeFevre was kidnapped from the hospital, then disappeared. The baby’s grandmother had seen a newspaper report of a girl bearing the likeness of Cassidy’s mother, and hires Guy Turner of Knights Associates to investigate the girl’s background, in case she’s her missing granddaughter. But someone else thinks that baby Cassidy has surfaced again after 29 years, and wants her dead.

Many secrets start to unfold, and Knights Associates can’t believe how deep they tie into the baby’s family, but could there be a hidden killer in the family closet, or does it involve Bailey’s mother, and how deep? And will Bailey live to see those answers revealed?

As a mystery lover, I couldn’t put the book down. The author captured me with her writing style, and the characters carried me away. Every time Bailey took off alone, I was on the edge of the chair. Didn’t she know someone was hiding in the dark? Would she live to the next chapter? Yes, it’s one of those kinds of stories. The kind of mystery that makes me want to read more. I’m already looking forward to Maggie Thom’s next thriller. Highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Read July 29, 2014
By Aly
Format:Kindle Edition
I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

The first scene in Captured Lies is attention grabbing. It is obvious later on in the book that the main character was involved in the first scene. Although we're not sure why or what happened to lead to that scene so there's still plenty of mystery left. Then there was also the fact that a lot of people seemed to be after Bailey and discovering their motives becomes the main motive of the reader(or at least it was mine).

Much of Captured Lies had a lot of attention to detail. The author was through and made sure that the reader could easily picture everyone and everything. It wasn't hard to see the book as a movie going through my head. I enjoyed the descriptions and the ease that the author had when describing things.

It was clear that everyone was connected somehow and sometimes we'd be given little glimpses of the connections but it took a while to put together how people were connected, especially to Bailey and why they all wanted to find her and/or hurt her. It was interesting to see all of these connections come to light. I enjoyed it and the difficultly of trying to figure out who was connected with whom and why.

Then there were the characters. Bailey was an interesting character. She had absolutely no idea who she really was and when it came to light she didn't go looking for a payout or anything. She just wanted to get to know the family she never had. It was refreshing in a book full of characters that were greedy. And Guy. Guy was great! He was amusing, refreshing, and appreciated everything he was given. I have to admit that he was my favorite character in Captured Lies.

Captured Lies is a good read for people who enjoy suspense and mysteries. It was an interesting book, with lots of connections to figure out.

4.0 out of 5 stars lot of suspense and tension June 30, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
This was an enjoyable read with a lot of suspense and tension. I really liked the overall idea of the story and thought it was well-planned and believable. I also LOVED Guy. I had trouble warming up to Bailey. For a woman pushing 30 she often acted much younger. Some of it I could readily chalk up to her exceptionally difficult childhood, but still she grated on my last nerve. With Bailey, progress seemed to consistently be one step forward, two giant steps back. When cornered or assaulted Bailey became the type of character I love – boy, was she ever kick-ass tough when it counted! Those were the times when her street smarts and tenacity caused me to cheer. Those pivotal moments showed a self-assured, strong-willed person ferociously fighting those determined to silence her forever; to uncover the elusive answers and discover her true self. There is a sequel and I am sure Bailey will face new challenges and continue to grow into a better person. I hope that Guy will be there for her as her personal transformation evolves.

This book was given to me in exchange for my honest review.
