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.

The main character Bailey has found out her life was made up of lies. With people trying to pull her in different directions she is determined to find out the truth. I would call this a roller coaster read. It was awesome!!

4.0 out of 5 stars A fast-paced suspense March 21, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
This is a fast-paced suspense that surrounds Bailey trying to figure out what is going on and not only who she truly is, but why everyone is suddenly wanting her dead.

I enjoyed this book, although there were a couple of points that it wasn't really clear to me how all the parties ended up at the same place at the same time. But, that did not effect the overall enjoyment of the book.

I liked the character of Bailey and understood her need to always be on guard--the lessons her mother instilled in her over her childhood were deep-rooted. And, I LOVED the character of Guy-- he was torn between his duty to his step-grandmother and his desire to protect Bailey.

The secondary characters were interesting and I would like to have known some of them better--perhaps if this is part of a series, I can get to know them better over time. There is still a lot of room for Guy and Bailey to grow both together and separately, and I would like to learn more about Graham.

“She was kidnapped not once, but twice and now someone wanted her dead because of it.”

This book is energetic; fast paced and had me hooked from the first page.

Maggie Thom is obviously a very talented author who knows her stuff and keeps the reader guessing and on the edge of their seat throughout. If this is indeed your first novel then I can not wait to read more!

A highly recommended read and a very easy 5 Golden Apples

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Reading February 5, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
First, I have to say that this was one of the most exciting and heart stopping stories I have read in years. I think this author is fabulous. I could not believe how well this book was written.

My interest was captured on page one, then within a couple of pages the excitement and frightening events begin. I could not even read this in one sitting. I had to keep putting it down to catch my breath.

This was written so well, that even though the reader knows that the heroine, Bailey, was kidnapped at birth, this just makes the story even more fascinating as I wanted her to find out, but it took a long while. In the meantime, she and her new protector, Guy, who had been hired to find her, spend the rest of the story evading the bad guys. Note, I said bad guys, plural. They just kept popping up. One would be gotten rid of, and then another would be on their trail. It was really exciting.

People kept trying to kidnap her, kill her, and kill Guy. No matter how hard they try, they can’t seem to evade the people chasing them. Even when they reach their final destination. they are not safe.

I really loved this book, and would highly recommend it to anyone who loves a good mystery. I give it 5 Stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Captured Lies, another great book from Maggie Thom! November 20, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Captured Lies by Maggie Thom had everything a book needed to become unforgettable and every ingredient that I needed to become hooked on a certain author. I read Tainted Waters by Thom first and I thoroughly enjoyed it, so naturally I bought Captured Lies.

The books were like day and night. The only things they had in common were the author, the suspense and the fully developed characters. As I was reading, I kept muttering, “How did she think of that twist? Where does she get her ideas from?”

I was invested early in and with shockers like this, I’m sure you can understand, “She looked down and tear-filled blue eyes blinked up at her. The baby’s bottom lip was trembling. In the five months Mary had the baby she’d never before felt a tug in her heart. Amazed at what fear would do to her, she shook off the feeling and tucked the screaming baby into the diaper bag.” Into the diaper bag?! Just try to put the book down after that sentence!

The book was a stand-alone thriller with just enough romance at stake to keep my anxiety flowing and my attention caught. I have to confess, I did something I rarely do. I peeked. Yup. I peeked at the ending because I couldn’t take the suspense anymore. I got my answers but the fascinating storyline never let me put my Nook down until I was finished reading Captured Lies.

Many authors use a cookie cutter formula with different sprinkles to change things up a bit. Thom is not one of those authors. Captured Lies
proceeded at a riveting pace with plenty of surprises and it kept me invested in the characters and concerned about the outcome for Bailey, the main character, when she kept tripping over family secrets.

Thom has written her first two books with the flair of a seasoned author, so I can’t wait to see what she writes next. I don’t know how she does it but Thom is a writer’s writer.
