Book Blurb-
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.

Excerpt - Tainted Waters by Maggie Thom
“Well, well. What do we have here?”

Her tongue felt thick and cottony but she managed to croak out, “who the hell are you?” If she’d been able to muster enough spit she’d have spat in his face. Maybe this is a nightmare. Praying that it was, she closed her eyes for a second and let her head drop forward. The next instant her head was snapped backwards, hard into the solid structure behind her. The man’s fingers pinching her chin. Something sharp was pressed to her throat.

“You’ve caused me nothing but headaches. You’re a royal pain in my ass.”

The fear was almost choking her, her whole body vibrated from the tension. Her mind was going a mile a minute. What the hell had she done to deserve this? How was she going to get out of this? And who was this nut case? As many thoughts passed through her mind, she tried to make sense of something and to pull herself back to the situation. To find some way of getting out of it.

The man’s lips were still moving so she assumed he was still talking but she couldn’t hear any of it. It was as he yanked his hand back that she got a good look at him. Or at least part of him. Her eyes widened in recognition. He pulled her to her feet.

“It’s starting to sink in.” The sound that came out of his mouth was the coldest, hardest, ugliest sound she’d ever heard. She wasn’t sure if it was meant to be his laugh but whatever it was, it sent chills through her body with sonic precision.

“Steele. How you making out with her friend?”

He stepped back and to the side, giving Sam a good view of the rest of the room. It was a large area; the outside walls were steel with the interior walls being drywall. Instantly she knew she was in the Quonset. And there wasnt really much options for escape. Two men stood by the door and one man was standing in front of someone tied to a chair, whose face looked like it had been fed through a meat grinder.

Blood ran down over his lips and dripped off his chin. From the bright red color of his shirt and the dark stain on his jeans, she’d have guessed he’d taken quite a beating. She bit hard on her lip to prevent herself from giving in to the urge to scream. She couldn’t stop herself though from closing her eyes. It was one thing for her to die, it was another to have dragged someone else into it. Her head snapped back as her hair was grabbed viciously. She glared at the man who had her at his mercy.
