Asbury’s fearless foursome is back!
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! In fact, Maddie can almost forget that her arch-nemesis, Alexis Johnson, will also be on TV for winning the logo design for Caulfield’s Candies… almost.
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?
If you could only eat one meal for life,
what would it be?
If I could only eat one meal for life, anyone who knows me would probably say I would choose cookies. However, I also know that cookies—although the most amazingly delicious dessert ever created—does not constitute as a true meal. Therefore, taking this question seriously, I would have to choose a steak dinner. However, I am quite picky when it comes to my steak, as anyone could attest. Not only would the steak have to be a Prime Rib bone-in cut, but there must be no pink on the inside. I’m not saying I like it burned or overcooked, just medium-well sits perfect with me. Also, by choosing a steak dinner, I get the delicious option of choosing some tasty side dishes. Of course, I would choose garlic-mashed potatoes. The mashed potatoes also have to be done a particular way (this is my only meal for life, right? It better be perfect!😊) Anyway, I am not someone who enjoys the potato skin in my mashed, so they would have to be peeled and tossed away. Also, I like it creamy with no chunks in sight! Yum! The other side I would choose, would be buttery string beans. The string beans wouldn’t have to be too particular, I tend to like any type of string beans. And finally, to top everything off, I would need to finish with a tall glass of cold, whole milk.
About Kelly Brady Channick
For as long as she could remember, Kelly Brady Channick 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. But her favorite job is the one she’s now doing full time: writing. Kelly loves to craft whodunit mysteries, leading readers through various twists and turns filled with red-herrings, hidden clues, and more peculiar characters than a reality show.
Kelly lives in South Jersey with her handsome husband, energetic baby boy, two cookie-stealing dogs, and an awfully smart cat.
