Tainted Waters by Maggie Thom Blog Tour

 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.

3.5 stars
This was one of those books that is hard to review because you don't want to give anything away so you can't say to much about it. It was very enjoyable and I loved the action in it. The first chapter was slow and I worried that it was going to be a long read and hard to get into but it was a very short chapter and once I got past that first part it was good. I liked the characters and they were well written and easy to fall in love with. The action was thrilling and had my heart pumping with excitement. So what kept me from absolutly loving it. Well, it would get going and be exciting and then slow down and I mean really slow down almost to much. The slow parts I think would have been fine but the just were to drawn out for me. Luckily before I got to bored it would pick back up and that saved it. Now this is just my opinion and others may love that about it but to me it I think it would have been fantastic if it did not do so much back and forth with the really slow and then exciting. I liked the story line and enjoyed it and if you like a mystery with a tiny bit of romance then this is for you. Don't let the slow parts get you, keep reading I think you will fall in love with Sam and Keegan just like I did.
