Welcome! Today I’m hosting a stop on the Great Escapes Virtual Book Tour for Broken Heart Attack, the 2nd book in the Braxton Campus Mystery series by my friend, James J. Cudney! I’m so excited about this tour and happy to be apart of it!

Review – 4.5 out of 5 stars
Wow! This book is so full of twists and turns! Many things happen that completely rock Kellan’s world, the mystery is quite compelling and full of red herrings, and Nana D is running for mayor. All of this combines for a fast-paced, exciting read!
All our favorite characters are back and getting into all kinds of shenanigans. I love the addition of Emma, Kellan’s daughter. She’s so sweet yet smart and precocious. I just love her and am glad we’re getting to see her more and more.
This time around we get insight into the drama department instead of the sports and baseball programs. I love the insight into the various departments of the school.
I did not figure out the villain in this one before it was revealed. The red herrings were powerfully convincing!
I think I like the first book more, but that isn’t meant to detract from this one. It’s incredibly fun and full of twists and turns!
You should definitely read this series in order, starting with Academic Curveball and you should start today!
About the Author
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 with a degree in English literature. 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. I frequently blog and publish book reviews on everything I read at ThisIsMyTruthNow via WordPress.
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!
