“Maggie Thom’s talent for mixing mystery, intrigue and romance becomes a masterpiece begging to be read.” Tome Tender


Excerpt:
She was so riveted by his demented plan, she couldn't move. With more force than she'd have expected from someone his age, he grabbed her arm and yanked her to her feet. She stumbled over her shoes, falling to her knees. When she realized it had pulled him off balance. She dropped flat onto the floor and rolled away from him. Having no idea where he was, only knowing that she was free, she raced to the door. Her fingers scraped over the door knob as there was a loud bang and something whizzed by her ear. She dropped to the ground.

"Damn you. You'll pay for that. Where's my son?"

HASH(0xb2f80120) out of 5 stars A tangled web of deceit and lies March 11 2014
By Kim - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Review by Kim
for Read Your Writes Book Reviews

Deceitful Truths is a suspense/thriller with small romantic elements. Maggie Thom has managed to give the reader a tangled web full of lies and deceit to try to figure out. Deceitful Truths is a stand-alone story, however events which take place in Captured Lies (the first book in the Caspian Wine Series) are referred to, so if you haven't read that book, you may want to.

While I liked Deceitful Truths, I found the story to be a little confusing in the beginning. It was hard to figure out who was saying what and where the story was initially going. But the cool thing about that was that it kept me wanting to read the book.

Three years ago, Tarin Madsen Roth awakens to realize she has lost a week of her life and the only clue she has as to what happened is a piece of an invoice from Caspian Winery stuck to her back. Confused and alone after her father refuses to listen to her, she marries Stephen Roth. Unfortunately for Tarin, her marriage is anything but perfect. Stephen uses her as a trophy and shows her off to everyone. He’s rigid. He's distant and doesn’t show much affection for their two and a half- year-old son Chance. In fact, Stephan doesn't like for their home to show a child lives there at all. Finally getting fed up with her life and not knowing what happened to her, she takes her child and leaves. As luck would have it, Knight Associates has an opening. Now, Tarin just has to figure out who she can trust.

Knight Associates, founded by Graham and his partner Guy, is experiencing some higher than normal traffic when it comes to their new cyber crimes division. Needing help, they place an ad and in walks Tarin. Tarin seems to have the perfect resume and is perfect for the job. Maybe a little too perfect. It’s soon discovered that mostly all of the new traffic is bogus, to lead them on wild goose chases. The only question is why. Add to that, Graham discovers Tarin has hacked into their computer system.

As if things are not hectic enough at work, Guy has to deal with learning that things aren’t going so smoothly with his wedding to Bailey, heir to the Caspian Winery. Plus, Caspian Winery is being hit with bad wine arriving at vendors and wine shipments going missing. In it’s long history, Caspian Winery has never experienced any of these problems.

With her move across country, Tarin seems to have a bullseye placed on her back. Lucky for her, Graham is there every time to save her and her son from danger. While Graham doesn’t trust Tarin, she intrigues him and makes him step up his game. In Graham, Tarin sees the man she has always wanted to have. She fears that the secrets she’s hiding will not allow them to have a chance.

For me to say I didn’t know who was behind everything would be a lie. I went into the book having a pretty good idea. The only question was how and why. Deceitful Truths delivers the suspense I’m accustomed to from Maggie Thom. Her web of connect the dots will definitely have you wondering what’s going to happen next. The best part is that this book didn’t give me nightmares.

HASH(0xb2f80174) out of 5 stars Good suspense Sept. 2 2014
By D.E. Haggerty - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Deceitful Truths is the second book in the Caspery Winery Series, but it is not necessary to read the first installment to understand and follow Deceitful Truths as Thom does a good job of ensuring that all the important information is included in this installment. There is a lot going on in this book. There are several storylines that are slowing coming together. Although I quickly figured out all the clues, it was still an enjoyable read.

I did feel that some of the chapters were too short and the information all too fleeting. A little more filling in could have made the story flow better. Some of the action doesn’t make sense due to the shortness of the some of the chapters. Unfortunately, there are also some areas that are unbelievable. You would never put a woman in a room with the man that kidnapped her. It doesn’t take a security expert to figure that out.

There are a tons of characters to follow in Deceitful Truths. This can be a bit confusing. I like how Thom gives secondary characters a personality and background as well. Often secondary characters are flat. This is not the case in Deceitful Truths. The character of Tarin was very realistic. I wanted to scream at her to trust the men of Knights Associates, but considering her history of abuse, not trusting was more realistic. I was less impressed with the male characters of this novel. It was very obvious that Tarin had been abused. Instead of treating her with kid gloves, they didn’t trust her as she was keeping secrets. Of course she was keeping secrets! As former police officers, they should have understood an abused woman’s need to keep secrets.

I received this book in exchange for an honest review.

HASH(0xb2f805ac) out of 5 stars Another Great Thriller From Maggie Thom Sept. 14 2014
By Virginia E. Johnson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
“Mystery And Suspense Brings The Story To A Boiling Climax.”

After Tarin Madsen Roth escapes from her abusive husband she applies for employment at Knights Associates, hoping to uncover her own mysterious past. Accessing their high-profile accounts throws suspicion on her, however. Someone is out to destroy Caspian Winery, and they are targeting Knights Associates to stop their investigation. Tarin is suspected of being involved.

Stuck with an abusive husband, and a son born out of a missing week in her life, there are questions in her past that she wants answered. These are all made clear from the beginning. Her mother is also estranged, and her father lies about her mother’s death. Nor does she know her grandfather. So many parts of her life are missing, and someone wants something from her. Is it her son? Why was she abducted, and who is the father of her child? And what has the mystery to do with the Caspian Winery? The first half of the book is a merry-go-round of twist and turns, keeping the reader in suspense. The characters keep the reader involved, and all the players start materializing by the halfway mark. The action picks up even more speed once Tarin becomes connected with Knights Associates, a computer investigative firm run by Guy Turner and Graham.

This second entry in the Caspian Wine Series contains mystery and suspense that brings the story to a boiling climax. But there’s a lot left untold in the series, and I can guarantee there will be more stories set in the Caspian Wine saga. What is Bill’s background? Who is Tarin’s mother? Who is Carol? What else will we learn about LJ? Stay tuned folks, there’s more to come. Highly recommended.

HASH(0xb2f8096c) out of 5 stars suspenseful story that kept my attention June 24 2014
By L. Jenkins - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
This was a and kept me intrigued throughout. Knights Associates seem to be under a cyber-attack of massive proportion. Partners Guy and Graham are scrambling to figure out the source of the attack, but are unable to make any progress because their workload is overwhelming. They hire Tarin to help them sort through the staggering number of emails.

Tarin is a woman on the run from an abusive husband, and is fiercely secretive about her personal life. She is motivated to help Guy and Graham clean up the mess, especially as she comes to realize that somehow it may be connected to an unsavory, vaguely remembered incident that haunts her from several years before.

The author weaves an engrossing tale; stingily doling out clues to deeper mysteries piece by tiny piece. There are red herrings in abundance and it was a challenge for me to keep track of the many convoluted relationships. Sometimes Tarin frustrated me with her secretiveness. Graham grew on me as the book progressed. I was thrilled that Guy had settled Bailey’s tendency to run away from everyone and everything. Marriage agrees with the couple; I liked Bailey’s personality as a happily married woman. Her maturation has been significant. Guy is the same dependable, anchor that I loved in the first book. The intensity really picked up in the last quarter of the book, and the ending left me wholly satisfied.

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