Audio books have always been a great distraction for me while exercising and Covey and JayJay Get Educated was fantastic at providing me something else to focus on while I put one foot in front of the other. It’s not too long (under 6 hours); the narration is easy on the ears; and there is some mystery, some history, and some whimsy.
Covey and JayJay Get Educated is set in 1996/1997 but could easily take place today. I found I had to often remind myself that Covey and JayJay aren’t traipsing thro

Covey and JayJay Get Educated by Shelton L. Williams is the exciting sequel to Covey Jencks (2018). While this second book can be read as a standalone, the first book is so entertaining, you won't want to miss out.

After cracking their first case and nearly getting killed in the process, Covey and JayJay are back in the crime-fighting game. The difference is that they are now a bit wiser and a little more organized in their sleuthing. Covey and JayJay hightail it out of Odessa and head to Baker C

Covey and JayJay Get Educated, by Shelton L. Williams is the second book in the Covey Jencks series. I listened to the first book a little over a year ago and remember very much enjoying the story and getting a kick out of the narrator, Kathy James.

I think the characters are what I enjoyed most in this book, especially JayJay. I loved how fearless she was and how she handled herself in any situation. I can’t remember if I had similar feelings while reading the other book, but I thought that Will

“As the inimitable Betty Davis once said, “Fasten your seatbelts. It’s going to be a bumpy night.””

I am happy the story of Covey and JayJay continued into this second book. They became memorable characters and I was looking forward to their story extending beyond the first book.

The Betty Davis quote is a perfect story description of Covey and JayJay Get Educated by author Shelton L. Williams. This book is a true chimerical story woven around small college life and not just one murder, but three.

This was my first read by author Shelton L. Williams, but it will not be my last. This is the second of the Covey Jencks Mysteries. It gave me all the feels of an interracial spin on the Mr. & Mrs. North tv series in the early 1950s. One of my favorite black & white series with the exception that this couple was not married.
Covey Jencks is contacted by an old college friend, who may be suspected of murder. There has been high profile alumni murders at Baker College. This is where the fun begins

This sequel, Covey and JayJay Get Educated, picks up with the unfortunate death of Covey’s friend. To pay respects and get a few answers, Covey and JayJay go to West Waverly in Texas. This search for answers, however, seems to draw out even more questions and very questionable characters.

I received this book in the form of an audiobook. It’s become a wonderful way to listen and complete tasks in a breeze. In my case, I enjoyed drawing and getting inspiration from these audible pages. For this au

I did a spotlight on the first Covey Jencks novel last year, so the name of the amateur sleuth was not unknown to me, and neither was his creator, Shelton L. Williams, but all I had time to read at the time was the excerpt I posted in the spotlight. While I’m sure reading book one would have benefited me, jumping into book two didn’t make me feel lost or confused at all.

In fact, I was delighted by Williams’s storytelling and his funny, smart, snarky characters from chapter one, where Jenks muses
