    highly recommend!

    Leona DeRosa Bodie powers the plot along smoothly. Her clever twists and intertwining of subplots kept the pages flying. I couldn't put SHADOW CAY down, had to read it in one sitting and stayed up to 2 a.m. just to finish it.  It's such a great book that every time I thought I had it figured out, another jolt sent me reeling. Although this fast and furious thriller kept me on the edge of my seat until the last page, I found myself unexpectedly laughing  in certain spots. This was truly a great read and in the wee hours of morning I realized SHADOW CAY fired off the movie projector in my mind. I can see this suspense novel as a  major motion film!

    I highly remcommend this novel

    Leona Bodie is a new master storyteller. I found Shadow Cay hard to put down, once I started it. The characters are lifelike and made me care. Big bucks and bigger dreams entwine in a web of deceit. I can't wait to read more by this author.

    fast moving exciting Bahama Islands tale of drugs, murder, intrigue, and love

    A story occurring mostly in the Bahama Islands that shows how powerful a corporation can be due to illegal transactions, mostly drug related. There are no qualms in this illicit business that lead to murder, sex, terrorism, and easily tearing families and individual lives apart. It makes corporation leaders non-trusting of almost all of those they deal with as well as their spouses and/or girlfriends and boyfriends, fiancés, and many times even their own selves! Rico Salazar was caught in a storm in an area of the Bahama Islands that was very remote with no populated islands nearby. He thought that it would be a perfect place to set up his business. His problem were the few people that lived on this mostly deserted island, so he had to scare them into moving away by any method he could devise. Salazar was good at conniving so it took little time to make this island into his own private drug manufacturing home, knowing he could control the entire area around the island due to the many shoals that made entrance almost impossible. If someone ventured into the area they would disappear and never be seen or heard of again. Madeleine Nesbitt and her parents were having a delightful cruise in their boat until they strayed too close to Salazar's island and, as with all others, they were trapped and killed. Maddy was fortunate to escape by hiding under water for some time until the killers had left her for dead. It was such an awful ordeal for her to watch her parents so harshly killed. She decided then and there that she would get revenge some how, some day. She laid out some elaborate plans by changing her name and appearance and eventually working for the man himself and those he dealt with in his huge drug trade. Salazar even had some of the police on his payroll so Maddy and any others trying to trip up this man with no conscience did not feel safe going to any law enforcement to report. The story moves around from the Bahama Islands, south Florida, and points around the area. You will learn much of how these drug cartels get their materials, manufacture their goods, and move them around to where they could sell them. While all of this transpired, Adam Joseph Hartman was appointed president and chairman of JaHart International, the company that had developed a new special defibrillator that prevented irregular heartbeats in heart patients. A J and his wife, Jeanette, worked hard to perfect the company but A J only had money, and beautiful women in his mind and the fact that he knew Salazar made the money making easier once they got their heads together. Enter Peter Duncan who A J hired as one of his executives in JaHart. Peter knew there was something wrong with the new defibrillator with the amount of returns due to malfunctions. Madeleine worked her way into A J's life and obtained his trust to give her knowledge of the company and all they did. A J knew nothing of Maddy's real intent but this gave her the entry into both companies to hurt all involved in her parents' death. Don't be confused by the above review because the story is well written and you can follow it easily. It flows well and contains many characters, good and bad-naturally-and there are many surprises throughout the story. Enjoy it; I did.

    An awesome suspense novel! Shadow Cay is a well-written nautical

    An awesome suspense novel!
    Shadow Cay is a well-written nautical tale. I read one other review that said “Do NOT read this book if you are planning to sail…” and I was thinking “It would be awesome to read this while sailing!” So, I guess that’s how people differ. Either way, I loved the pacing and suspense in this book that kept me intrigued the whole way through. Excellent developed characters, exciting action, and interesting settings. Loved this book.
