    So, I will say right up front that there is a fair amount of mild cursing and a couple of sex scenes that were more than I needed to read, but I am a prude so they are probably pretty mild. That said, I was very disappointed with the language. My general rule is to not finish a book after the second 'F' word. This book had one near the beginning and then not another one until about half way through. I didn't like that but tried to overlook it as I liked the book.

This book had one near the beginning and then not another one until about half way through. I didn't like that but tried to overlook it as I liked the book. Then near the end as the action was coming to a close, there was a string of what seems like dozens. Ugh! I am sad to say that I was so close to the end that I did just keep going. If you are offended by that type of language, this is not the book for you. I wish someone had put that in a review that I read before reading the book, but alas that was not so. Overall, I really liked the plot and I liked that the main character is a body language expert. That was really fascinating. I liked the main character so I am hoping that the next book doesn't have the super offensive swearing. I would have rated this book closer to four stars if the offensive language had been removed or vastly reduced.

    Riveting A wonderfully written murder with high stakes drama. Interspersed with both a sad history and a little hilarity, this book had it all. I was captivated by the lives of the characters, written with care and color that made them completely believable. While the caught up in the intrigue of the story, the ribbons of life binding all the characters, I found myself unable to put the pieces together solving the murder right up to the end.

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 know 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.

    Hanson spins a tale of tragic loss, devious conspiracies, and murder. The story’s idea is good and the setting, in the sultry Florida Keys, would enhance the ambiance, if it weren’t for the authors lack of skill in the craft of writing. Unfortunately Castle Cay is a classic story told, rather than shown. The story of course is readable, but it is just a story.

The shallowness of the characters, and their lack of feeling, even while immersed in their own dreadful circumstance, left the reader with no empathy toward them. Even though the idea is good, a writer must have the ability to make you feel the emotions of his characters. Never once, in this particular book was I put into a position to feel the characters pain, grief, or exultation. Even when our main character Julia, tragically loses her husband on their honeymoon, the author does not allow us to feel her pain. The conspiratorial character does not hold any menace. And Julia’s near-death experience, at the hands of a killer, does not instill us with terror. I would say, the three or four hours it takes to read this piece, was time better spent elsewhere.

    Really this is a 1.5 star rating, but Goodreads doesn't allow half stars. This was, I'm sorry to say, a bad read, not a good read. The first few chapters were horribly overwritten, but after a while either that settled down, or I started to overlook it because, once a plot engages me, the writing tends to pass me by (a notable exception being the Da Vinci Code, which had me wincing non-stop throughout). And, for a time, a decent looking plot does emerge but, without wanting to introduce spoilers, Really this is a 1.5 star rating, but Goodreads doesn't allow half stars.

And, for a time, a decent looking plot does emerge but, without wanting to introduce spoilers, it doesn't live up to its potential. The denoument (like much else in the book, such as the evolution of relationships) is abrupt, short and unsatisfying. The very final revelation about the fate of a certain individual is just horribly shoe-horned in, in a way that doesn't even make sense, it would appear that, in court, in passing, in testimony, (view spoiler)[someone happens to confess to murder (hide spoiler)] . I mean, honestly. And the chapters are also far to short, giving the whole book an abrupt and disjointed feel. For example, Julie may be at her office, and then go home. She's only at her office for 4 paragraphs. Instead of starting paragraph 5 with, "Later on that evening, back in her appartment, Julie ....." we get and end of chapter and then "Julie was in her appartment...." I guess it makes reading piecemeal easier, but it makes reading harder and uncomfortable. Finally, I was really let down by some of the teasers that came to nothing. This isn't a spoiler, it's a sanity saver: when Julie is swimming in Castle Cay, fighting the rip tide, something brushes her leg, but at the time she doesn't realise. The fact that this is mentioned at all left me assuming all the way through that it meant something and would be explained. It didn't, and wasn't. This is not the worst book I've read, but then, I have read the Dune prequels...

    If I had to give this review a title, it would be "Far From Bad." I am not saying Lee Hanson is the greatest writer, but she does a very admirable job of drawing the reader into the story, creating characters that resonate with their realism (mostly, see below), and not being unnecessarily verbose. I would even venture to say that "Castle Cay" owes a small debt stylistically to Hemingway, with sparse prose that evokes a scene without belaboring it. Positives: Our protagonist is amazing.

I would even venture to say that "Castle Cay" owes a small debt stylistically to Hemingway, with sparse prose that evokes a scene without belaboring it. Positives: Our protagonist is amazing. Julie O'Hara was nothing short of a dynamic character. She is not the smartest person in the room but she is a body language expert, which allows her to "read" people, and the inner dialog as she does this absolutely made her "snap" for me. No other character is as well-developed as Julie, but if you think about it, that is how a detective story usually works. When I was reading it, before I read the author's biographical "blurb," I was amazed at how she understood the way organized crime in Boston operated. I thought maybe she had been a law enforcement person herself because, as the story progresses, we get drug running, money laundering, and the connection between business and the Boston mob scene. I found her ability to evoke innocent people uncovering shady operations a very handy narrative technique. Negatives: There was really only one negative for me. Avram Solomon, one of the obvious villains of the story, is a gross caricature. Identified as a "sociopath" and drawn from central casting, I was increasingly irritated with how he was drawn for the reader. I think it is hard to create a villain that is not a caricature, but it can be done. There are two types of detective stories. There is the "police procedural" such as CSI, Law and Order, or any other program of that sort. The story is quite literally the effort to find the guilty party and the reader/audience is along for the ride, discovering the perpetrator along with the protagonist. The second type is the "gumshoe" story such as Philip Marlow, Columbo. or Sherlock Holmes. In these stories, the reader knows more than the detective and it is the progression of the story as the detective comes to know the whole story. "Castle Cay" is of this latter type. The reader realizes who the villains are fairly early in the story, though one of the perpetrators is exposed by an admission that jumped out about 70% through the story, though how it ties in is the final piece of the puzzle. I strongly recommend the story and will be getting "Swan Song," the second book by this writer.

    Castle Cay belongs on the shelves here because it was indeed a good read. The characters were interesting and well developed. One minor thing - the author must have had a fondness for Sol (the sun?) as one character was named Soldano, the Solomon's business was Solomon Chrysler (spelled Soloman once) and Julies's cat was Sol. I'm glad I overlooked that and continued on to finish the suspenseful story, which had just the right amount of descriptive passages.

    "A bit of a muddle" This was an odd mixture. I almost baled out in the first few pages. I dislike being given descriptions of settings and characters in such florid, and minute detail. What am I supposed to do with my imagination? Mark it as 'not needed on journey' and stow it away? I ploughed on in the hope that things would improve. Further into the story the level of detail dissipated, but the characters, settings, and plot became less engaging. The ending was inevitable, and somewhat rushed.

This makes for some interesting interviews of people involved with the victim. The victim is Marc, Julie's best friend and it gradually becomes apparent that the motive centers around an island called Castle Cay which Marc inherited from his mother but which the family had not used for years.

Top of the suspect list is Marc's brother, Avram. He's a nasty character who's pushing for the sale of Castle Cay, but he doesn't inherit the money from the sale, so why would he want Marc dead? Or was it Marc's lover David, a quarrel maybe? Or could it have been suicide? Marc did have AIDS. So many questions, so few answers. Helping Julie to answer the questions is Joe, a private detective that she rents office space from. But is this more than just professional? To find out you'll just have to read the book. This story was obviously well thought out and for the most part well paced. I felt like the writing got better with each page and kept me intrigued and wanting to see how it would all turn out. After a slow start I really enjoyed this book and would recommend it for those who like mysteries. The body language analysis aspect adds a nice little twist. I look forward to reading the next one in this series.

Another thing is Julia/Julie sleeps with a guy as soon as they express interest in her. Seriously girl doesn't date, doesn't even pretend to play hard to get.....nope dude said he is sorry for being a jerk bam she has sex with him (keep in mind apparently she is a virgin) It was a free book, otherwise I would be really ticked off. And nope I will not be reading other books in the series.

Got it with mixed fillings, I needed something to read on a plane, but couldn't and put off reading it for a few weeks. When I finally got around to it, it turned out to be very, very good.

I particularly like the fact that a lot of the action takes place in south Florida, but not in the perpetual sunny days and clear nights often associated with this kind of story, but in a very true to life rain, Sun and in between whether that is the true norm. It kept me coming back, curious to see what happened and to follow the story. A great story and I look forward to reading more from this author.

    I downloaded this book for free so I was not expecting much, but I was wrong! This is a good book. It deals with the murder of Marc, who was infected with aids and living with his partner in Key West. It also deals with stolen painting and a drug ring operating out of Massachusetts and the author does a good job of tying it all together in believable way. Not too long of a book, easy read, and I recommend it.

And she was the one who was going to figure it out. We have the death of her husband on her honey moon, her gay friend dying of aids, a sociopathic manipulator and mob/drug runners. I enjoyed it.

    Good mystery- some sexual content and foul language. Will read books by this author again.
