This is one of my most favorite prompts because I end up adding so many books to my “want to read” list. I don’t know about you but I can’t read more than one book at a time and generally I prefer the actual book to a Kindle or Nook version. However, one of my blogging friends is an author who has been churning out mysteries quite rapidly and if I bought the actual book each time I’d be broke!
All the mysteries are set around Braxton College and Kellan, the sleuth, has his hands busy not only with solving the crimes but also with his young daughter and the rest of his family. The characters in the series are quirky and fun. I’ve yet to be able to figure out “who done it” before the end of the book.
Jay has written two other books, not in the series, his first novel, Watching Glass Shatter is a great book about a family of five brothers whose father dies suddenly and leaves his wife a cryptic message about one of the boys. Jay has said there will be some sort of sequel or follow up to this book as well and I’m looking forward to that.
The other book, Father Figure, is also about a family intrigue but this time is is girls, born decades apart, who don’t know that they share a parallel history.
I’d highly recommend any and all of these books if you are looking for a new source.
So far so good with keeping up with August Break. We have no big plans for the month so I should have time to keep going. Still time to join in!
