College Campus Cozy Mystery

COVER REVEAL: Mistaken Identity Crisis (Braxton Campus Mystery #4)

Posted on

I’m super excited to share today’s cover reveal of Mistaken Identity Crisis, the fourth book in the Braxton Campus Mysteries. It is currently available for pre-sale and will be available for full download on June 30th, 2019. Physical copies will be available in July 2019. A blog tour is planned for July 2019 with Great Escapes Virtual Book Blog Tours.

The first big step was revealing the cover… and I’m lucky enough to have the support of Shalini @ Digital Reads Blog Tours and over 20 bloggers doing today’s big reveal of Mistaken Identity Crisis. See the full list below and please visit their sites. Tell us what you think of the series, characters, description, and cover design. We’re all excited to hear your opinions and share the posts with our followers and friends. Many thanks for your support and feedback!

Overview of ‘Mistaken Identity Crisis’

A clever thief with a sinister calling card has invaded Braxton campus. A string of jewelry thefts continues to puzzle the sheriff given they’re remarkably similar to an unsolved eight-year-old case from shortly before Gabriel vanished one stormy night. When a missing ruby is discovered near an electrified dead body during the campus cable car redesign project, Kellan must investigate the real killer in order to protect his brother. Amidst sorority hazing practices and the victim’s connections to several prominent Wharton County citizens, a malicious motive becomes more obvious and trickier to prove.

As if the latest murder isn’t enough to keep him busy, Kellan partners with April to end the Castigliano and Vargas crime family feud. What really happened to Francesca while all those postcards showed up in Braxton? The mafia world is more calculating than Kellan realized, and if he wants to move forward, he’ll have to make a few ruthless sacrifices.

Election Day is over, and the new mayor takes office. Nana D celebrates her 75th birthday with an adventure. A double wedding occurs at Crilly Lake on Independence Day. And Kellan receives a few more surprises as the summer heat begins to settle in Wharton County.

TITLE REVEAL: Book 4 in the Braxton Campus Mysteries

Posted on Updated on

It’s an exciting week on the Braxton College campus! We have two great promotions going on: (1) the 2nd book in the series, Broken Heart Attack, available for .99 cents from 3/28 thru 4/1 and (2) the 3rd book in the series, Flower Power Trip, had its launch day on 3/30. But that’s not all… today, we reveal the title for the upcoming 4th book in the series which will be published in June 2019. We’ll also share the official cover in a few weeks…

MISTAKEN IDENTITY CRISIS

A clever thief with a sinister calling card has invaded Braxton campus. A string of jewelry thefts continues to puzzle the sheriff given they’re remarkably similar to an unsolved eight-year-old case from shortly before Gabriel vanished one stormy night. When a missing ruby is discovered near an electrified dead body during the campus cable car redesign project, Kellan must investigate the real killer in order to protect his brother. Amidst sorority hazing practices and the victim’s connections to several prominent Wharton County citizens, a malicious motive becomes more obvious and trickier to prove.

As if the latest murder isn’t enough to keep him busy, Kellan partners with April to end the Castigliano and Vargas crime family feud. What really happened to Francesca while all those postcards showed up in Braxton? The mafia world is more calculating than Kellan realized, and if he wants to move forward, he’ll have to make a few ruthless sacrifices.

Election Day is over, and the new mayor takes office. Nana D celebrates her 75th birthday with an adventure. A double wedding occurs at Crilly Lake on Independence Day. And Kellan receives a few more surprises as the summer heat begins to settle in Wharton County.

LAUNCH DAY: Flower Power Trip (Book #3 in Braxton Campus Mysteries)

Posted on Updated on

It’s LAUNCH DAY for Flower Power Trip, the 3rd book in the Braxton Campus Mysteries series. If you participated in the Amazon pre-sale offer, it will download to your Kindle device today. Thank you to everyone who purchased the book; I’m thrilled and super appreciative of your support.
To get the book, you can buy a Kindle or physical copy via Amazon.

Overview: Braxton College is throwing the Heroes & Villains Costume Extravaganza to raise money for renovations to the antiquated Memorial Library. While attending, Kellan stumbles upon a close family friend standing over a dead body that’s dressed as Dr. Evil. Did one of Maggie’s sisters kill an annoying guest at the Roarke and Daughters Inn or does the victim have a more intimate connection to someone else on campus? As Kellan helps the school’s president, Ursula, bury a scandalous secret from her past and unearth the identity of her stalker, he unexpectedly encounters a missing member of his own family who’s reappeared after a lengthy absence. When all of the peculiar events around town trace back to the Stoddards, a new family who recently moved to Wharton County, the explosive discovery only offers more confusion. Between the special flower exhibit that’s made an unplanned stop on campus and strange postcards arriving each week from all around the world, Kellan can’t decide which mystery in his life should take priority. Unfortunately, the biggest one of all has yet to arrive at his doorstep. When it does, Kellan won’t know what hit him.

Overview / Description:
When Kellan Ayrwick returns home for his father’s retirement from Braxton College, he finds a dead body in Diamond Hall’s stairwell. Unfortunately, Kellan has a connection to the victim, and so do several members of his family. Could one of them be guilty of murder? Soon after, the college’s athletic program receives mysterious donations, a nasty blog denounces his father and someone attempts to change students’ grades. Someone is playing games on campus, but none of the facts add up. With the help of his eccentric and trouble-making nana, Kellan tries to stay out of the sheriff’s way. And if that wasn’t enough already, his own past comes spiraling back to change his life forever.
