Title- Tainted Waters
By Maggie Thom
Publication Date- April 30th, 2013
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 Review: If you like a setting on the edge of your seat nail biting mystery thriller here is one waiting for you! Tainted Waters was all of that and more. I found myself wanting a chance to jab the bad guys in the face a few times myself. As Sam and Keegan set out to figure out what is happening to the people who suddenly seem to be dying off it seems as though they were playing with the devil himself and he held all the cards. I couldn't put this book down I had to find the answers as much as Sam and Keegan. These two characters create quite a team and become a force that doesn't back down or walk away without finding what they came looking for.
Maggie Thom is an awesome mystery/ thriller writer and I am certainly happy I have stumbled upon her books. She has definitely earned a spot on my bookshelf. I thoroughly enjoyed reading Tainted Waters and highly recommend it.
