Guest Book Review - Deadly Ties: A Suspense / Thriller / Mystery by Maggie Thom plus $10 Amazon/Paypal Giveaway - 2 Winners!


She went to jail for the right reason but the wrong murder.

With her mom in a coma, Kyara is determined to discover who is behind the brutal attack. Does her grandmother’s recent release from jail have anything to do with it? The police believe that some meth addicted youth are responsible but what Kyara uncovers is shocking. Is anyone telling the truth? Even Ryan who she thought might be able to help her is harnessing his own dark secret. Is he truly trying to help her or does he have his own agenda?

The golf course wasn’t built because the sport was gaining in popularity but to hide a deadly secret. Those responsible are determined to keep it buried and those who know anything are being silenced. Kyara finds herself trying to catch an old woman, stay ahead of those trying to kill her and unveil the truth. But can she do it before a town pays the ultimate price?

Guest Book Review by Rachel Quaill
Deadly Ties
By Maggie Thom


“A Story Embroiled in a Heated Deathly Cover Up”
5 Stars


Deadly Ties by Maggie Thom immediately drags the reader into this convoluted story that has so many twists and turns it keeps the reader guessing until the very end. Thom does an excellent job in getting you to immediately relate and believe in each of the characters. You either empathize with them or despise them and all their character flaws. Filled with suspense and romance this story will grab your attention as you learn about all the secrets, lies, backstabbing, and hints at true love.


Kyara, the main character is brave yet vulnerable as she sets out to reveal exactly why her family is embroiled in a heated deathly cover up that spans years and under the nose of a whole town ruled by a filthy rich family the Jesperson’s. She finds an unlikely friend in Ryan, who is also caught up in all the deceit. Kyara, although unwilling to trust anyone uses her handsome new friend to try to discern facts from lies. Ryan himself was unwittingly dragged into managing the golf course for his wayward, filthy rich high school buddy, Jaspar Jesperson.

Another key figure in the story is Kyara’s grandmother Getty, who is a newly released convict serving time for a murder she didn’t commit. You almost want to see succeed in her plot against her nemesis, the matriarch of the Jesperson family. Kyara harbors deep resentment against her grandmother for what she put her through and what she feels she did to her mother and entire family since Getty never did reveal the truth about her innocence. Being the granddaughter of an infamous killer makes Kyara believe that her grandmother is the force behind all the evil that is attacking the town. Little does she know that soon her sleuthing will uncover years of PCB poisoning at the hands of the Jesperson’s.

Book Description
D.C. paralegal Jezebel Stone's tardiness often gets her in trouble, but this time it leads to meeting her dream man. Her choice of metro seats places her on track for finding love again. But when their ride ends in a fiery crash, their separation sends her on a mission of reuniting with him and finishing their fateful trip.

But instead, it entangles Jezebel in the twisted lives of those determined to destroy each other. This prickly path also holds the potential of leading Jezebel to an unlikely place of joy. Finding joy seems impossible when life is literally exploding all around her.

LATE FOR FATE won Best First Chapter from WRITERS' TYPE

Available to buy from...

"Jones is a gifted author with a talent for sharp, fast-paced prose that keeps the pages turning. Late for Fate moves at a thrilling pace. It's studded with sharp-edged, witty dialogue and quirky characters that stuck with me long after reading. Jones' knack for creating stories that feel familiar but are unique in voice and plot make every read (including Late for Fate!) a great one.
 ~Kathleen Shoop, best-selling author of the Letter Series and After the Fog 

"Ms. Jones has perfectly captured how one moment in time can change a life for both good and bad. Excellent story with well written characters and a terrific (sometimes terrifying) theme. A great read. Highly recommended." - Amazon Review

"Lori has shown an extremely deft touch. I enjoyed the entire reading experience in second attempt at authoring. I enjoyed the characters, the quick pacing, the brushes with fate, the witty banter and the slick manner in which Lori handles the alternating points of view."
-  James J. Robinson,Jr.

"Scene-stealing Nicole had me laughing out loud. From the opener, I was hooked." 
-  Carolyn Menke 


Hubbies Book Review
An intriguing story line about how a near death experience can shape events in your life. When Jezebel is involved in a train crash and pulled out of the wreckage by a mystery man her whole life is turned upside down and to fulfil her hearts desire she has to find him regardless of the outcome. The author takes us on a roller coaster ride of emotions and along with it the trial and tribulations of love and the secrets that it holds.

The story is an easy one to follow with short chapters which I always prefer.  The characters carry and display true human feelings which is a tribute to the wrirters style.

An enjoyable read which any mystery/suspense reader will enjoy.
