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!
