I am always excited when I get to organize Jay’s bookish events. It is always a hot and happening (he is hot and I am happening) as he hardly gives me time to get it done in a relaxed manner. Without much ado, I unveil his book.
Digital Reads Blog Tours presents Book 4 in the Braxton Series by James J Cudney 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.

James is my given name, but most folks call me Jay. I live in New York City, grew up on Long Island, and graduated from Moravian College. I spent fifteen years building a technology career in the retail, sports, media, and entertainment industries. I enjoyed my job, but a passion for books and stories had been missing for far too long. I’m a voracious reader in my favorite genres (thriller, suspense, contemporary, mystery, and historical fiction), as books transport me to a different world where I can immerse myself in so many fantastic cultures and places. I’m an avid genealogist who hopes to visit all the German, Scottish, Irish, and British villages my ancestors emigrated from in the 18th and 19th centuries.
Writing has been a part of my life as much as my heart, my mind, and my body. I decided to pursue my passion by dusting off the creativity inside my head and drafting outlines for several novels. I quickly realized I was back in my element growing happier and more excited with life each day. My goal in writing is to connect with readers who want to be part of great stories and who enjoy interacting with authors. To get a strong picture of who I am, check out my author website or my blog. It’s full of humor and eccentricity, sharing connections with everyone I follow—all in the hope of building a network of friends across the world.
When I completed the first book, Watching Glass Shatter, I knew I’d stumbled upon my passion again, suddenly dreaming up characters, plots, and settings all day long. I chose my second novel, Father Figure, through a poll on my blog where I let everyone vote for their favorite plot and character summaries. It is with my third book, Academic Curveball, the first in the Braxton Campus Mysteries, where I immersed myself in a college campus full of so much activity, I could hardly stop thinking about new murder scenes or character relationships to finish writing the current story. Come join in the fun!

It is so humid, I am sticky all over, not even in my juices… 2 showers since morning. Have to take a third so exhausted
That humidity is a real killer.

James is right. You are brilliant, Shalini. Reading your reviews always bring a smile to my face… and your comments are soooo delightful, too. For selfish reasons, I should visit you more often. 😉
Aww.. You are just too kind. James has been very sweet and gracious. Besides he has got to say good things about me… 😂 😂 Rules of friendship 🤣🤣
Well, I believe James to be the kind of man that says what’s on his mind. He is also smart and knows what’s best for him… Never argue with an intelligent and hot woman.
Hahaha yes… And I think he knows it!! And yayy, I am intelligent!! I make such dumb decisions that I doubt myself 🤦♀️
Hmmm… Technically, I don’t have to, but I want to say nice things. There’s a difference. I could be a mean friend, but you’d kick my rear end! 🙂
I would,… But very briefly 😂😂
