You know what they say about sequels, how they are never as good as the first? Boy are they wrong in this case. This is a cracking thriller, again starts slowly building up till you realise that it’s got you gripped and engrossed. Definitely worth a read. Highly recommended.

Tarin is on the run with her young son, Chance, hiding out from the manipulative and brutal hands of her husband and the father who never wanted her. An expert with a computer, she takes a job as a cyber-specialist at Knights Associates to have access to their computers to do her own cyber investigating. Too bad she is under the intense scrutiny of Graham, their resident computer sleuth, who soon discovers what she is up do, but isn’t sure what her motives are.

Although "Deceitful Truths" is a sequel, Ms. Thom easily twines the previous happenings into the current book without it becoming an information dump.

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 th

This was a suspenseful story that kept my attention 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

Deceitful truths by Maggie Thom

4 Stars

Okay, this book was engaging and I couldn’t put it down, I was eager to find out what had happened to Tarin and what was going to happen with Chance. But, I was confused about lots of things and even by the end I wasn’t 100% sure what the connections were between everyone. Not that that really matters because I got the answers I needed even if I didn’t totally understand it all!

The plot was full of twists and turns and red herrings (I think!) because just wh
Tarin was missing for a week, she doesn't know what happened but she does know that she ended up pregnant and has no idea what to do next. She fell into the arms of Stephen, who she married and lived two years in terror, she has had enough and runs with her young son.

Getting a job with Knights Associates is a perfect fit for Tarin, they solve cyber crimes and Tarin maybe able to get the answers she has longed to find out, primarily what happened that week. However her employer Graham knows Tarin
Great suspence/thriller
Free download ARC in exchange for an honest review.
This is book two of the Caspian Wine Series Book 2 although a standalone book, I think it’s far better to have read book one Captured Lies first.
It follows on the thread of the first book. We see Tarin running away from an abusive husband at the same time trying to find out what happened to her “missing week” three years ago.
She gets a job at Knight Associates and meets Guy, Graham and Bailey, characters from Captured Lies

Fantastic read, You will never guess where it leads

Full of mystery, suspense and romance, Deceitful Truths keeps you on the edge of your seat as it pulls you into the web Maggie Thom has woven. Who did what? Why? and how are they all related? I could not read it fast mind was captivated with guessing where the next pages would take me, only to be surprised by another twist and my mind being led in a different direction.

This is the second book in this series. I found it to be just as good as the first one. You don't have to have read the first one to be able to follow along with this one. It was better because I knew what led to some of the actions after reading the first one though.

I love the story line and the emotions that come with trying to find the truth and learn who to trust. The way that the characters interact with each other is something that I could see actually happening.

I received this book as ARC for an honest review. I loved it, it was full of suspense, twists and turns, with some romance thrown in. It was part of Caspian Wine series. This was Tarin and Graham's story. Tarin lost a week of leer memory 4 years ago and found out she had gotten pregnant during that time. She is investigating to see what happened to her during that week. Lots of lies, twists, turns, and suspense. Great read! ...more

Really enjoying this series. The characters are interesting, believable and well developed. Their situations do not feel contrived. There is enough history for books to stand alone but they flow well in the time line to mesh from book to book.

Great second book in the series. Maggie Thom puts more twists and turns in her novels than a bag of pretzels. The characters are strong and each has a piece of the background of the story. You really need to read these books in order and, believe me, it's definitely worth it. I received an ARC in return for a fair and honest review. Ms. Thom deserves her five stars, It can't be easy to put a three book series together that include all characters yet makes each book unique. ...more

This story is about what a mother will do for the love of her child. Tarin will do what she needs to to protect her family. But when she thinks things are going fine, they actually are not. Can she get away from her controlling, abusive husband or will he find her and their son? What will the consequences be? Read the book to find out. I voluntarily reviewed a copy of this book.

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

This is a highly complicated book, not for the casual read. While it is easy to work out what's coming (I had the ending figured by 15% of the way through), it us an entertaining read that does bring you from one page to the next with ease. The plot with Tarin, Graham, Dorothea and the like is a twisting, turning ride that will bring you to the end with s huddering halt.
