Captured Lies by Maggie Thom

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 hadn’t been normal but she’s worked hard to stabilize her life. She finally has a good business, a stable home; her life is miles from that of her childhood. Then her mom suddenly 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 was a lie. Growing up on the run has prepared Bailey for once again, fleeing to stay alive. Using the skills she learned on the street, 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 uncover 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? To discover the truth, she’ll have to untangle a web of deceit, lies, and secrets dating back over thirty years.

Maggie Thom has a hidden gem with Captured Lies!

Oh, my!! So many twists and turns. So many secrets. A little romance, a lot of mystery. Loved it!! Great stand a lone but a wonderful sequel to Captured Lies.

Life has never been easy to understand, not even for those who lived settled lives.This fast-paced, compelling read has just the right amount of sizzle. As usual, I cannot say more without risking a spoiler. Looking forward to Book 2 when it works its way to the top of my queue.

5 out of 5 – page turner

Captured Lies is a wonderful read! From the very beginning Maggie Thom’s book took me on an awesome roller coaster ride… Thom fills the story with such an array of characters that the plot can’t help but thicken and the web of deceit seems to encompass everybody. I really enjoyed how Bailey had to decipher clues, hidden messages and being kidnapped in order to finally learn the truth. She’s a heroine everyone will cheer for with a story that sucks you in. Captured Lies is suspense at its best keeping you on the edge of your seat and your fingers glued to the pages until the very end.

Hope Was Here

Captured Lies had my attention from the very beginning, with a newspaper article dated February 14, 1983.  With that said, I had high expectations for this book… Would I read Maggie Thom?  The answer to that question is a definite yes.

Kim - Read Your Writes

Maggie Thom’s debut book, Captured Lies, starts off fast and the action never lets up. I was swept into Bailey’s life… I found myself rooting for her… As things barreled toward an explosive climax, Thom doesn’t disappoint. This is an author to watch. I am eagerly awaiting her next book.

Patricia Terrell

…Captivating story, it was intricate and  every time you had it figured out a shift would happen adding another layer to the puzzling story.  Bailey was intriguing, she is torn between what Guy is telling her and putting her trust in the woman she  knows as her mother.  I had a hard time putting this one down, I wanted to know what really was the story about Bailey, excellent read.

Musings of an Addicted Reader

…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!

Tammy's Tea Time

A real page turner. Lots of twist and turns. Good character development. What do you do when you find your life is a lie. Intriguing story.

Judy Tucker
