Book Review: 'Captured Lies' by Maggie Thom


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.
