BOOK TOUR AND GIVEAWAY: Deadly Ties by Maggie Thom


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?

Review: I was fascinated by the synopsis of this book and could hardly wait to start reading it when the opportunity arose. The beginning was a bit difficult to get through, and rather confusing, but I was determined to finish it, and I am very glad that I did. Once the action started to pick up, I wasn't able to put it down till the end!

Everyone in the book seems to have some sort of secret to protect, and some will go to greater lengths than others in order to protect them. Some of the secrets are fairly obvious early on, while others aren't revealed until later in the story...and will come as a surprise to the reader. You also won't know for sure who should be trusted and who shouldn't as the story plays out. 

The writing could have used a little more polish---too many unnecessary commas, and several rambling paragraphs which were hard to follow---but the plot is well defined and the characters are realistically developed as the story progresses.

**I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are entirely my own.**

Rating: Four stars
