This series is so much fun! And when I saw this title and this cover, I just knew it was going to be my favorite. I'm a huge Halloween fan and would seriously just like this holiday year round! Anyway, now that I'm going off course, let me get to my boy Kellan!

Kellan's life is full of so much drama and I love it! There's a ton of mystery to these stories, but what I like just as much is the family dynamic with the side characters. Kellan's such an awesome dad, and I've always wanted

Dear Readers,

I deeply appreciate the author for having
sent this book on over.

The character development is superb. As
these books progress, the characters come
alive. Kellan has a great sense of humor.

If this book were made into a Halloween
movie or TV show, I would enjoy seeing
Kellan's responses to various things. In
addition to his great sense of humor, Kellen
has a knack for finding crime scenes and the putting pieces

Halloween In The Braxton Campus Is An Adventure With Friends,Ghosts And Criminals

Another fantastic adventure with all our friends who live and work in and around the Braxton Campus. The author continues to expand the lives of all characters, you can not help but feel of several as real friends!
Kellan's life is full of drama, comedy, and lots of love as he works hard teaching classes and trying to keep his daughter, Emma, safe and happy. He is really interested in the new sheriff, April, but i

Kellan Ayrwick has a new house, but it comes with a few surprises!

Kellan is busy renovating his new home–though pranksters keep vandalizing the space–planning the fall festival, and creating a stable life for his daughter and young cousin.

When a skeleton is found during the demolition of the Memorial library, the town speculates whether it is the long lost mistress of Kellan’s new home and Kellan wonders if he’s found his ghost.

A series of suspicious accidents

I thoroughly enjoy this series. Kellan Ayrwick is a great protagonist who constantly finds dead bodies and ends up helping to solve the mystery behind the murders. This is the fifth book in the series, and although you can read them as standalone stories, I recommend you read this one in order. There is a lot of character development that happens in each book as well as history that will help you to enjoy these books to the utmost.

As this is a Halloween story, this story has some par

Whoa! I think my head is still spinning from attempting to keep up with the sprawling cast of characters in HAUNTED HOUSE GHOST! I'm very grateful to Cudney for including a character list at the beginning of his book that I actually had to reference several times, but even that wasn't truly enough-- at one point I thought I had better start drawing family trees to try and understand everyone's intricate connection to one another! For me, the enormous amount of characters slowed the flow of the n ...more

Oh. My. Gosh.

Pardon my responses getting old and almost identical to my previous ones, but this is what this author’s books do to me especially when it ends with a cliffhanger.

HE DROPPED A BOMBSHELL AGAIN. He knowingly left us with a massive cliffhanger that makes our heart palpitating and leaves our mind galloping so fast.
At the time of writing this, I’m still reeling from the initial shock. I seem to need to take a long, deep, calming breath before proceeding any further, and I blame the au

Although this is the fifth in the Braxton Campus Mysteries, Haunted House Ghost works fine as a standalone and this one is particularly unique.

April and Connor figure prominently again as the local detectives, with April becoming a romantic interest. Kellan has a large family unit, most notably Saraphina Danby, better known as Nana D and recently elected mayor, as well as daughter Emma. Kellan now functions as a college professor.

This entry to the series has Kellan finish

I’ve gone over the previous stories in this series while looking at the map included in this book and placed everyone and all the action in the various locations. The list of characters and how they relate in the story is a great idea too. The map and list of characters creates a great foundation.

As the story progresses, Cudney continues to build the personalities of his characters, their interactions among thems

This may be the fifth book in the Braxton Campus Mysteries series, but I felt right at home with the characters from the beginning. The who's who at the start was very helpful indeed, since this book had a whole host of characters, I initially felt overwhelmed reading that but soon discovered the book would narrow them down and we would only dealing with a select few -phew!

Our main character Kellen has bought and is renovation the Old Grey House which just so happens to be haunted, o

It’s Halloween and Professor Kellan is renovating his newly purchased rundown mansion in the Haunted House Ghost.

A current mystery and a historic one compete for Kellan and his potential girlfriend, Sheriff April’s attention. Between that, a Fall Festival, a ghost, home renovations, a psychic, and a skeleton, no wonder Kellan and April can’t even find the time to go out on a date!

Good thing there is a guide to Who’s Who in the front of the book. This book has the largest cast of any

This season we are back with Kellan as he’s once again pulled in a million different directions what with parenting not only Emma but his cousin as well, along with teaching, other family obligations with Nana D, Violet, Eleanor, etc., and being co-chair of a Halloween/Fall Festival being held at Danby Landing, all while trying to complete fixing up his newold house so they can move in.

I'm a huge fan of Cudney's and of course love this series! Protagonist Kellen is moving into his new home that is rumored to be haunted and the first scene will scare you enough to compel you to finish. It's the same quirky family, featuring his sweet young daughter, feisty Nana D as well as the rest of his family and relatively new love interest, April. There are several murders and lots of characters, layers and layers of plot and history surrounding the house. Even though I recommend reading ...more

Love this mystery series !

The perfect combination of suspense and thrills to the reader. The hilarity and heartwarming relationships of family, plus the drama of small town living makes it a fun read.

I am in love with Kellan and am hoping Nana D will adopt me.

Haunted House Ghost is a super read for October and Halloween season !
