Asbury High and the MisTaken Identities: Asbury High Series
by Kelly Brady Channick


 I am excited to welcome Kelly Brady Channick
to Escape With Dollycas today!



                For my Asbury High series, my writing is pretty light-hearted. I like to keep readers entertained with some humor sprinkled throughout while hiding clues to the story among the humor.

                To be honest, when I wrote my seven-part Asbury High series, I outlined each chapter and made sure to sprinkle Easter Eggs all over. Thus, in the first two books in the series, there are some scenes that may seem unnecessary, such as dialogue or background character descriptions.

                However, as the series progresses readers realize that a harmless conversation in the gang’s favorite restaurant (Brady’s) may have seemed boring or not needed, only to realize it held the key to the mystery in a later book.

                Basically, I’m a fan of the slow burn. Not too slow though, because I’m not trying to write a book that puts readers to sleep. However, I also have read too many series that starts off with a bang or get to the hook too fast, and then the remainder of the book or series just seems drawn out. Ergo, as the series continues, and the reader gets to know the characters more intimately, the action increases, as well as the pace of the mysteries.

                With me, readers can expect to get fully immersed in the small, seaside town of Asbury, and really develop a relationship with the town and its people. This series was meant to be one where readers will find at least one character they connect to, and (I hope), one where they fall for some of my tricks and are surprised at each book’s ending. I love a good twist—after all, what mystery is good without one?

With the official reopening of Brady’s and their sophomore year beginning, Maddie, Cornelious, Carly and Pilot are ready to shift their focus back to high school. Unfortunately, a month into the new school year many Asburyans find their bank accounts depleted, with no hint of foul play. Even the bank tellers insist that each withdrawal was done in person, with proper identification supplied and correct responses given to security questions.


Pilot, excited at the possibility of working with a cyber-crime, urges the gang to dive in—only to discover there are no traces of wrongdoing online either. Instantly intrigued, the gang decides to investigate the case before their own family’s accounts get hit.


However, with their successful sports teams, the continued growth and organization of the Pitbulls, possible new relationships blooming, dating and unrealized jealousies coming to the surface, the teenage sleuths find themselves more distracted than ever. After piecing together some clues, they wonder if someone in Asbury High is to blame for yet another crime.


Can Asbury’s favorite foursome figure out who is to blame before Asbury itself goes bankrupt?


Asbury High and the MisTaken Identities is the third book in an enticing young adult cozy mystery series that fans of Nancy Drew, The Hardy Boys and Scooby Doo will love.

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.

Great Escapes Praise for Asbury High and the MisTaken Identities: Asbury High Series
by Kelly Brady Channick

This was another fun visit to Asbury with Maddie, Cornelious, Pilot and Carly . . . They are realistic teens (except maybe the rich part) who play sports, are cheerleaders, attend book club and Pilot is a computer geek. The mystery is embedded into the characters’ stories . . . I continue to recommend this series to teens (12 and up), especially if they enjoy a good mystery.
~Carla Loves To Read

Ms. Channick deserves this five-star rating along with a recommendation to anyone that loves Scooby-Doo and reading about teenage sleuths to give this series a chance. I loved it from the very beginning.
