In the first book of the Braxton campus mysteries, we are introduced to the Ayrwick family and friends. Many of these friends are employees of the college and a couple is old college friends. The plot is very creative and different from any I have read. At first, I had a problem until I had characters fixed in my mind when I found it hard to put down.

Kellan returns to tiny isolated Pennsylvania’s village where he grew up for the retirement party for his Father, the President of the Braxton College. He works in Reality TV and hopes to soon have his own show. He is the father of a six-year-old girl. Kellan finds there are problems grade changing, challenges that appear to be financially implicating his Father. At the party, he finds the body of a dislike professor. Many of Kellan friends could be responsible for the murder. After a second murder, Kellan begins to understand part of the problem. There a numerous of turns as the story nears the end, which has a major cliffhanger. I highly recommend this book.
