Debut author Kelly Brady Channick entices mystery lovers with twists and turns in in this striking new series, perfect for fans of old-fashioned mysteries.

Is their favorite hangout to blame for recent food poisonings? Or is there something more sinister at work?
After an unprecedented first year of high school, the gang is ready for a relaxing summer vacation, although in Asbury, that may be easier said than done. This summer, the Food Network is running a summer special highlighting local hot spots, Carly, Maddie, Pilot and Cornelious are psyched to have the world's best restaurant featured-their very own Brady's!
However, after patrons start falling ill, shoobies and locals alike point the finger at Brady's and rumors of food poisoning. When Brady's threatens to close its doors, Pilot realizes his mother's job is in jeopardy, as well as his future in Asbury. With the aid of Cornelious' wealthy cousin Dane, who spends every summer with the quartet, the gang is once again thrust into an investigation. Unfortunately, they find themselves thwarted by both the local police (who believe their recent success was due to luck, rather than skill), and Cornelious' father, who has decided to run for Mayor of Asbury and cautions his son on the need to maintain a spotless public image.
With a new pancake house on the boardwalk, Mainlanders invading their beaches, and the Pitbulls sneaking around and terrorizing shoobies (as usual), there's no shortage of suspects. But can they solve the case before the summer, and Brady's, are finished?

Asbury High and the Parcels of Poison is the second book in young adult cozy mystery series, that fans of Nancy Drew, The Hardy Boys and Scooby Doo will love.

Amazon reviews:

"I like that the mysteries in these books are ones that readers of YA would be able to identify with. The lives of the four main characters are realistic with school activities, bullying, sports, rivals, crushes and family issues. Once again, the police had no idea what was going on, and it took the four teens to put the clues together to figure out what was going on. There were not really a lot of suspects, but there were a couple of red herrings. The final twist at the end was fun and I enjoyed how the group put the pieces together to solve the full mystery. Of course, there is also a little surprise at the end that I enjoyed. This book brings back memories of the mysteries that I read as a young adult. I recommend this book to young mystery lovers."

"Asbury High and the Parcels of Poison by Kelly Brady Channick is tremendous, and I can't wait to get around to reading the next book eventually. I love this group of kids and how they are all very different, but they work great as friends. Including now in high school, and so many of them doing extracurricular activities away from their core group of friends. Despite that, they still care about each other and try to be there for one another. My rating is five stars, and I'm recommending to anyone that enjoys some teenage detectives solving mysteries."

About the author:

Born in 1991, Kelly loved growing up just over the bridge from Ocean City in Upper Township, NJ. For as long as she could remember, Kelly loved making up stories, and leaving her listeners/readers on the edge of their seats. Perhaps that's why she always managed to talk herself out of trouble...

After graduating from NJ's own Ocean City High School, Kelly accepted a basketball scholarship to Holy Family University, in Philadelphia. As a lifelong athlete, Kelly understands the importance of teamwork and overcoming adversity, something she hopes translates into her books.
Before writing page-turners, she taught first, fifth, sixth, seventh and eighth grade -- like a dessert menu, she simply had to test them all out. Asbury High and the Thief's Gamble is her debut novel. Kelly lives in South Jersey with her handsome husband, energetic baby boy, two cookie-stealing dogs, and an awfully smart cat.
