Book Reviews From Blogging Authors

Thanks to Jacqui Murray for the review of Frankly Speaking


My writing PLN (professional Learning Network) pretty much revolves around blogs and the authors who share their insights and advice through the online blogs. When I have a question, I often go there first, before digging through my shelves of self-help writing books. Along the way, I’ve read many of their books. Here, I want to share those that I’ve particularly enjoyed and think you might too:

  • The Bug Buys is a humorous view of what happens when two boys unexpectedly get the super powers of insects.
  • The Gift of Guylaine Claire delves into how a family recovers when a critical person dies.
  • Frankly Speaking relays the story of a detective-turned-PI, hiding from his past, who becomes caught up in a murder mystery

  1. “Frankly Speaking” was an easy read with surprises along the way. I couldn’t believe that it was a “first” book, written just to fill time on travels etc. Don has an incredible imagination. The two characters he “invented” feel like real people. While reading, I often thought that they could become famous detectives and this book could lead to a series and then I learned that it has happened. I admired the incredible knowledge Don has about law and order and especially the computer, also of people in high places. No, it wasn’t him – it was all the work of the two detectives but it was easy to forget that Don was the architect and not one of the detectives. The story itself tackles a sensitive problem and I was really relieved when it turned out alright, at least for a few girls. Thank you, Don – I am happy to “know” you!
