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?

About the Character Guest Post 


What is your greatest fear? (Maddie)
Hmmm… this is tricky. To be honest, most people describe me as fearless… or more accurately, reckless. Regardless, I feel like I don’t have the most typical fears. No heights, or claustrophobia or arachnophobia for me. And I’m definitely not a germaphobe or a picky eater. I’d like to say that after a ghost story or scary movie, I do get creeped out by demons — but Pilot takes the cake for that type of fear! And Cornelious has a strange fear of whales, that sometimes I feel akin to, but other times I just think he’s crazy…

I guess if I had to nail down one thing, I’d say… losing a loved one for good. Whether they were to pass away or disappear — and the latter option is far worse too. I mean, I’d probably spend eternity looking for them because I know my mind would NOT let me just give up hope. Honestly, I couldn’t imagine losing any of the gang, or my family members… heck, even their family members. And yes, that includes Jeremiah Gibbz… despite our, uh, tense relationship, I know how hard Cornelious would take it and that would break my heart....

So yeah, I guess losing a loved one is my biggest fear. Especially since I can’t protect everyone… or really anyone, who I’m not constantly around… and even then, I guess I can’t really, truly protect anyone from all the unknowns of the world. But, that’s why you just appreciate each day, try not to fight with anyone you care about, and not let fear crawl into your mind. At least that’s what I do… and people do say I’m fearless. 

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.
