THE LIGHT NEVER LIES by Frances Guenette

“Heartwarming, heartbreaking, all those kinds of adjectives. Now I have to go read the first book.”

Just wanted to share this review of The Light Never Lies. The book has been out two weeks and has already garnered a couple of really interesting reviews. This reader had not read Disappearing in Plain Sight and found the 2nd Book in the Crater Lake series to be stand alone. Good to know!

What Has Been Read Cannot Be Unread

Never Lies This is the sequel to Disappearing in Plain Sight,   which I have not had the pleasure of reading.   So although I am happy to say that is is a stand alone book,  before you get to the standing alone part, you have to get through the throngs of characters that come pouring off the pages at you.   It put me in mind of those 50’s movies ads for their “cast of thousands”.    At one point I thought I might need to set up an Excel spreadsheet to square away who was who and who was related to who else and all their backstories.  Whew!

But once I got past all that (which really wasn’t all that bad, I just like to exaggerate a smidge),  holy patoly, what a read!  It is all about the characters in a Canadian summer camp for abused/troubled teens, both the residents and the staff…

    Hi. Having read the first book, I can hardly wait for the story of Izzy to unfold (my favourite character). I am trying to wait for the Kobo version but I see there is a Kindle app for I-pad!!!! Jane

    Nice – I’m looking forward to the read. I so enjoyed Disappearing in Plain Sight; I know this one will be exceptional as well.

    • Second time around the novel writing wheel, I do feel like The Light Never Lies is a stronger book – but if we aren’t getting better in the craft then what the heck are we doing – right? Thanks for the vote of confidence.

        That is so true, Francis. I’m learning something every day as a writer and editor. A former boss once complimented me on how I worked with journalism students because I was open to learning from them as well as teaching them what I knew. When we stop seeking and learning and applying, then there isn’t much else is there?

  4. Authentic and honest! That’s awesome!

    I will get around to downloading your bookS, soon Francis. 🙂

I would really love to hear what you think about this post . . .
