Tainted Waters – Book Review – WIN PRIZES!

Tainted Waters

by Maggie Thom

Tainted Waters - Book cover

He didn’t commit suicide but who’s going to believe her…

Frustrated at being fired from her latest job and overwhelmed by her consolatory family, Sam decides to move to the family’s cabin at the lake. A place she hasn’t been since her dad committed suicide there twenty years before. Or did he? Snooping is something she’s good at but someone seems to be taking offense to her looking too closely at what has been happening at the lake. What she discovers is shocking. Now she must uncover what’s real and what’s not. All that she learned growing up, may be false.

Keegan, who has recently moved to the area to finish his latest book, is also trying to find out if his grandfather, who’d passed away ten years before, died of natural causes or was murdered.

The descendants of the four families who own the land around the lagoon are dying off. Since Sam and Keegan are the only ones questioning the deaths, they find themselves working together to seek the truth. Are people being murdered? Who would benefit from their deaths? Why would there be barricades and armed guards at the north end of the lake?

To stay alive, Sam and Keegan must find the answers and convince others, before more people are killed… including them.

My Rating:  4 Stars

My Review:

Fast paced.  Interesting characters.  A tiny bit unbelievable at times but quite interesting nonetheless.  The author knows how to build suspense and create an eerie mood.  She certainly kept me turning the pages, late into the night.  Loved the ‘creepiness’ of the lake and the things that it hides!  Good use of description and the writing flowed well.  I can see this author developing a fan base quickly!  Four stars!


Maggie will be awarding a $25 GC, winner’s choice to Amazon, Barnes & Noble or Kobo, to a randomly drawn commenter, and an autographed ecopy of Captured Lies to another randomly drawn commenter during the tour. A signed autographed copy of Captured Lies will be awarded to a randomly drawn host (US ONLY).

Follow the tour and comment.  The more you comment, the better your chances of winning!
