When the Nesbitts anchor in the Southern Bahamas one night in a moonlit cove, Madeleine discovers someone wants to make sure her family never makes it out of paradise alive. The double murder of her parents shatters the only security she’s ever known. Now thrust into a world of international intrigue, she vows to find answers before the killer returns for the next of kin. ‘Shadow Cay’ is a contemporary thriller about the bravery of those determined to fight injustice.
I received a copy of this novel in exchange for my honest review. Madeleine Nesbitt has had a life filled with difficulty, from birth until the age of seven; when they remove the tumor the size of a Honeydew melon, from the back of her head. Since the surgery she begins to have a sixth sense of sorts, not wanting to worry anyone she keeps this to herself. At the age of eight, the wealthy man that paid for her surgery (and also family friend), takes Maddie on one of the newest cruise liners for a day trip. Maddie has a really bad feeling as she approaches the ship but it is brushed aside. The day trip turns tragic as something happens to the ship and it begins to sink. As she begins to sink, she sees an ominous character. Luckily Maddie is saved by a young man whose name she does not recall and haunts her dreams. This book is an unexpected thrill ride, excellent characters you can relate to, love, and hate. This book is very descriptive and makes you feel like you’re there in the moment. An awesome book through and through!
