This book was one of my favorite surprises. I'd never heard of the author or the book, but I fell prey to the cover image and a few -a very few -- reader comments. To my delight, it had everything I like in a book like this: strong, believable, likable characters, an interesting setting -- loved the Florida locale, and the island sounded heavenly. Add in a reasonable plot -- not too far out, not too mundane -- and good writing, something which I suppose is pretty subjective -- and I've got a book I like. As it happened, this book grabbed me from the first page, and I found myself looking forward to getting back to it after every break.
I suppose the "free book" is a marketing strategy -- the idea being that readers will read that one, and then buy the others. If that's the case, it worked! I'm ordering the next two books in the Julie O'Hara series right now. These are keepers!
Especially at the beginning, i couldn't keep track of all the different characters but it was well-written, which counts for alot in my book :)
Except for a few missing words here and there, the book was descriptive and intelligently worded
I would try another read from this author in the future.
Julie O'Hara is a complex, vibrant protagonist whose particular skill (she is a body language expert) is invaluable in helping her `read' her suspects. But it is when the reader learns about her tragic past that Julie really starts to jump off the page.
One of the book's main strengths is that even the supplementary characters feel fully fleshed out - they are dynamic and interesting - which makes it more than just a murder mystery as you are deeply involved with the various family members and friends (from the deceased's relatives to Mafia members).
The author's greatest success is in putting together such a complex plot while retaining the page-turning narrative that keeps the reader hooked. Sometimes when an author adds extra elements to a plot it can detract from the storytelling, but when Castle Cay sees the introduction of the upper echelons of law enforcement, this only serves to deepen the reader's interest in this addictive novel.
This book is well worth reading - I will certainly be looking out for all future Julie O'Hara stories.
Julia is an expert at reading body language and has a business of helping lawyers pick jury panels by reading body language to get people that will be fair to the defendant. She shares an office with Joe Garrett, a PI and together they call in favors and contacts to start investigating Marc's death. David, Marc's love interest is charged with murder until the real killer is revealed.
The story leaves the reader on the edge as clues are revealed and put together to find the murderer; a mob drug ring is brought down by the FBI. Joe makes a move on Julie or Merlin as she is known professionally and they are the romantic interest. Castle Cay has a lot of mystery and a nice little romance too for a really good story from start to finish. The author uses flashbacks to tell the story very effectively.
This story pulled me in from the beginning and kept me turning pages to find out what would happen next. It is fast paced, full of suprises and danger. I also loved the romance.
This is the first of Julie's books I have read but I will be back for more.
