Another Home Run For Cudney!

Academic-Curve-Ball-Main-File

I met Jay awhile back through blogging.  As you may know, I’ve reviewed his other books in the past Watching Glass Shatter and Father Figure.  So when Baxter his pup blogged about the new book,  of course I had to read it and write about it!

Where do I begin without giving away too much?  Let’s just say that Jay has a way of writing that makes me feel as though I’m right there in the mix of wherever his characters are!  His characters are real and his main character is so genuine – like Jay himself!  He’s laid out a great set of central characters whom I am anxious to read about in the sequel!

This mystery kept me on my toes as I tried to figure out who done it!  I enjoyed the banter between characters and learning about the back stories for them.  Jay keeps it interesting throughout with twists and turns along the way.  His way of revealing relationships intrigues me as he seems to have his thumb on the aorta of human beings.  He’s got the pulse of all parts of human nature and he’s not afraid to let his characters be themselves.

This is most definitely an enjoyable, cozy mystery to read on a quiet Saturday afternoon – just make sure you have nothing to do because you’ll want to finish it once you begin!

Congrats Jay!  I’m looking forward to the December release of your next book in the Braxton Campus Mysteries!

Shine On!

Father Figure – Book Review

fatherfigure

Jay’s first book, Watching Glass Shatter gave me an unproductive next day because he kept me up all night!  Knowing how the first one went, I was smart and started this one on a weekend!

While I didn’t know what to expect, I really liked this book.  I liked the way we moved back and forth between time periods, but in a logical way.  You know how some books weave a story, but you get lost?  Not with this one!  But you’ll get the opportunity to figure out the puzzling bond that the characters share.

As male author, I thought it was interesting how he was writing from the younger female points of view which I found amazing that he’s so versatile.  Full of family drama/saga,  suspense and an intricate plot, it’s a great read.

You can find Jay here on his blog – this is the link to his first book!  Jay’s got book reviews, travel stories, his dog stories (RIP Ryder and welcome Baxter!) along with his 365 Challenge and all sorts of fun stuff!  Take a moment to blog hop!  He’s such a sweet guy with lots of friends.  You won’t be disappointed!

Shine On!
