Lives were changed in just SPLIT SECONDS as a young mother hiding from the monster that fathered her young twin daughters is discovered. Determined never to let him take her children and forced to flee across an angry and swollen river, two little girls will be separated from the other half of their souls. Years will pass until one twin is positive she “feels” that a vague photo is that of her long thought dead sister.

Tijan has been raised on a working ranch, an isolated world of warmth, hard wo

I received a copy of the ARC for Split Seconds from the author in exchange for an honest review. I had read book 1 in the series and was happy to see some of the characters of reappearing in book 3 (although you can read it as a standalone book if you're not interested in the rest of the series). The book starts with a bang with what turns out to be a scene that is core to the rest of the book.

The main characters are twins Tarin and Tijan, whom author Maggie Thom paints as complex, strong women

I wrote this story so my review may not count but I do know that this story made me hold my breath, get mad, swear a time or two and cheer on the good guys and pray the bad guys got caught. I was very connected to Tijan and her journey of figuring out if her twin was alive or not and then all that she went through. Everything she thought was true was soon a mystery to unravel.

Just when you think Maggie Thom is at the top of her game, she writes another suspense that takes her to yet another pinnacle. In Split Seconds, identical twins separated as toddlers are reunited. Thom tells the story of their separation in chilling detail that brought tears to my eyes, forced the adrenaline to pump and caused my maternal instincts to feel their agonizing pain—and that was only the beginning. Lest you think all falls into place when they meet again years later, you’d better hang ...more

Tijan grew up feeling someone was missing from her life. A sister, but was she a figment of her imagination? Her mother says her sister died when she was a child, but there is that feeling, and then she sees a picture in the newspaper of a wedding, and a hand is in view; that hand shows a birthmark, a matching birthmark that is also on Tijan. Is her sister, Tarin, still alive? She decides to go to Toronto and find out, but things happen too quickly and she’s thrown into several dangerous situati ...more

I really enjoyed “Split Seconds,” it’s a great sequel in Maggie Thom’s Caspian Wine series. The story of the twins separated at birth was emotionally compelling! She was wonderfully creative in her character development, which added fun to the mystery. It’s a great read for any age.

Canada is the stage for "Split Seconds", the third installment in the Caspian Wine series, featuring “country mouse” Tijan as she sets off to the city to find her sister.

Read full review in the 2017 September issue of InD'tale Magazine.

Book three in the series, and just as good as the first two. Not one but two feisty females what’s not to like. Cannot wait for the next book in the series. These are cracking suspense thrillers. Highly recommended must read.

Another great book in this series. Twins separated as toddlers, heart-breaking pain, twist and turns, thrilling suspense and her usual alluring writing, this is such a wonderful addition to a superb series.

A book that will keep you on the edge of your chair until the very end. Recommended.

Rating: 3.5 Stars

Split Seconds is the third book in Maggie Thom’s Caspian Wine Series and it most definitely has to be read after you read the other two books. I didn’t read the prior books and I felt as if there were plenty of times that I was missing something. Mind you, I did enjoy Split Seconds but I felt as if some of the mystery would have been a little less mysterious had I been privy to everyone’s backstory ahead of time.

Split Seconds focuses on twin sisters Tijan and Tarin. They were se
