ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
It wasn’t until the STATLER BROTHERS decided to retire from traveling in 2002 that Don pursued his writing career to another level. Having songwriting and scriptwriting under his belt, the next obvious step was to write a book. And that book was the scripture based HEROES AND OUTLAWS OF THE BIBLE published in June of 2002 by New Leaf Press. He has since written two other non-fiction books and in 2008 saw another dream come true for Don when he released his first novel, O LITTLE TOWN. Novel number two came in the form of ONE LANE BRIDGE, and THE MULLIGANS OF MT. JEFFERSON, is a sequel to O LITTLE TOWN.
Don is the father of two sons. Debo and his wife, Julie, and daughters Sela Mae and Adra, live within a stone’s throw. You may have seen Debo’s name on many songs written with Don on albums over the years.
ABOUT THE BOOK:
Now it’s 1959, and police lieutenant Buddy receives an early-morning phone call: his friend Harlan, a store owner, has been shot in a break-in. Cal, now a preacher, meets Buddy at the hospital, and together, as professionals and as friends, they begin to unravel what might have happened to Harlan.
I loved this nostalgic trip into the lives of Cal, Buddy, and Harlan and the idyllic town of Mt. Jefferson, Virginia. This book offers more than just a jaunt through the sleepy little town, though, as it also offers romance, intrigue, humor, and characters who, by the end of the book, you'll call your friends.
If you're a fan of Don Reid, you won't be disappointed with this tale...because the strength of his novel writing is of the same superior level as his singing, leaving you on the edge of your seat and wanting more.
My thanks to CFBA and David C. Cook for a copy for review.
