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.
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-paced, edge of your seat kind of crime/mystery. The action and suspense just kept coming! Every time I sat down to read, it was for longer than I intended. Bailey and Guy, the main characters, are likeable and have real flaws, not stereotypical as you find in many stories. I could not predict how they would handle situations which made them believable. The author took her time to build credible relationships and unfold the plot. There were plenty of twists and turns that kept me guessing.
Guy, a private detective, is hired by an adoptive relative to find her long, lost granddaughter Cassidy, who was kidnapped at birth. Bailey finds out from Guy, after the woman she thought was her mother dies, that she has been living a lie. Not even her name is real. No one is as they seem and she is not sure who she can trust. Instead of living the luxurious life of the wealthy young heiress she should have been entitled, her childhood was poverty and moving from town to town, scrounging the streets with the woman she called “mother” to survive. Her reappearance spells disastrous consequences for two very powerful and dangerous men who will stop at nothing to make her disappear.
This is Book 1 in the Caspian Wine Series. I fully intend to read the next book! I highly recommend this exciting and well plotted mystery.
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.
