MY REVIEW OF LEGALLY BLIND LUCK 5 stars:
Book number 7 of the Braxton Campus Mysteries! Just when you think it’s impossible for Kellan’s adventures to keep getting more and more intense, and dangerous, and utterly mind blowing… James J. Cudney comes out with a story like this! Kellan has been a professor at Braxton Campus since book one when his dad encouraged him to take the job and move back home. Each and every story in this series brings about a challenge involving some sort of death and mayhem that Kellan is somehow intertwined in.
One book after another Kellan’s family dynamics grow deeper. His love life goes from escaping a mob family that was his in laws, to dating the local law enforcement of Wharton county. Also, Kellan’s knack for solving murderous mysteries grows to impressive new heights! In Legally Blind Luck the thrill ride that is Braxton Campus only excels.
You see, there is a curse, an ancient artifact that has been wreaking deadly havoc for centuries. The talisman is a fairly small statue that is long sought after by many, and it’s gone missing. Kellan’s uncle suffered a very tragic death, but the details of his explossion just don’t quite add up. He was dating a woman at the time, a woman with secrets of her own involving the talisman. Also, the bag he had on the flight prior to his untimely death somehow wound up in the hands of a flight attendant and wasn’t destroyed along with his other belongings.
Kellan knows that things aren’t quite right, especially since the school has been planning to open up a new exhibit which has brought some very interesting characters to Wharton county. Characters that are a bit too attached to Kellan’s dead uncle and the talisman that he was involved with before his death. Kellan fearlessly dives into the mystery, determined to solve what really happened to his uncle along with bringing to light the mystery of this talisman!
This curse is one of a kind, and completely unforgettable. So are the characters, both new and familiar to the Braxton Campus books. As always James is able to intertwine details, braiding them together flawlessly and revealing one shock after another. I know that I say it with every Braxton book, but nonetheless, this is one of my absolute favorites! 5 stars, and I’ll be holding my breath for book 8!
Legally Blind Luck (Braxton Campus Mysteries)by James J. Cudney
Surprising new family members. A hidden talisman. Deadly curses. Murder. Months after tragically losing a loved one, Kellan learns his relative’s death wasn’t an accident.
Someone has discovered a cursed talisman, and a rogue government agent will stop at nothing to retrieve the heirloom. Unfortunately, it has already changed hands and found its way on campus. Moments before Braxton’s controversial art exhibition opens, Kellan stumbles upon another murder victim, and it appears he might be next on the avenger’s list.
Can Kellan protect the talisman’s true heir and prevent the killer’s nefarious plan? Given all the suspects have ties to prominent Braxton citizens, he’s uncertain whom to trust. Together, Kellan and Sheriff April are determined to solve the mystery – via legal means or blind luck.
