I was so engrossed in the story and plot that I didn't want to do anything but listen to this book.
There are many twists and turns in this story and it kept you sitting on the edge of your sit.
You never really know what is going on in another persons life.
Yes, by making it real in everyday life now.
Nothing! Tom did a wonderful job.
I liked that this book and Dee Hendersons other books are intriguing, but inspirational.
Seriously limited TIME! which is why I love audiobooks. I can do chores and ignore distractions by plugging my ears with my favorite authors
Beautifully written & perfectly narrated! A true romantic suspense without the usual smut! This is a Christian author who lives and writes her ideals. She manages to send a clear message of God's love and how people of true faith live their lives without preaching or diluting the fine tension of the story. Amazing!
Tom Stechschulte is one of the finest narrators I have had the pleasure of hearing. He has done nearly all of Dee Henderson's books and I get the definite sense that he enjoys them as much as I.
Dee Henderson is an amazing author. I wish she had more books out but I believe that quality is far more important then quantity, and quality is something she delivers-IN SPADES! She expresses violence, in defense of bystanders, loved ones, ones country and oneself as the unfortunate necessity it is. Expresses romance and the strong attraction everyone looks for in romance, but with the respect and restraint that is to often missing in fiction and in life. I can read or listen to her works and simply enjoy. I will not be walking or working out then suddenly freeze and go: Wait, did she have to go into THAT kind of detail? In a simple and transparent metaphor: there is no smoke to make you wince or cloud things up, no fire to burn the plot to rubble. Just the heat of action and the kind of warm relaxing steam that even the slightly prudish reader/listener can enjoy any time of day.
Danger in the Shadows is a prequel to the O'Malley Series of which The Guardian is #2 and The Healer is #6 I believe Audible has the rest of them clearly labeled. Check them out and enjoy!
This is a wonderful series that I can read/listen to over and over!! Not only keeps you on the edge of your seat but challenges your faith at the same time.
Danger in the Shadows is the first book I have read/listened to of author Dee Henderson. I found the novel to be captivating, I did keep wondering how the resolution would come full circle an like most good romances it did. I found the ending to be a bit fanciful, but at the same time the process Sara goes through is intriguing. Not quite a thriller but it did bate my breath on a few occasions. I appreciated Henderson's writing of the childhood trauma, but not dwelling on the evil of it...and letting God triumph through the darkness, with the continued thought of His sovereignty.
This prequel contains more suspense and action than it does mystery, but it's still an awesome book and provides great background on some of her other O'Malley series characters, such as Dave, Adam, and Sara. No bad language or steamy love scenes - just clean entertainment (often unappreciated in today's society). If you're looking for a serious, hardcore mystery book or something with passionate love scenes, this might not appeal to you. If you are a fan of Dee Henderson's O'Malley series or just like good clean suspense/romance novels, you will probably REALLY like this book.
Don't waste your $. There is no suspense to the story at all. In fact, as the story drags on, you are wishing for something to happen.
This is one of the worst books I've listened to in a long time. I don't usually write reviews, but i felt compelled to save others from wasting their time if I was able. The main character is a pathetic, schizophrenic woman and I can't imagine what a football star would ever see in her. The character development is flat, the plot moves at a snail's pace, and the recounting of the character's thoughts is repetitive and obvious. Plus, they seem to think their faith in God will make them bullet-proof. Please. God helps those who help themselves and all that. Please don't waste your money or your Audible credit on this audiobook.
I've listened to 3 hours of this and can't go on. A novel billed as suspenseful should have something going for it 3/8 of the way through! The only thing that's happened so far is a courtship between a woman paralyzed by a childhood trauma 25 years ago (they have psychologists for that) and a man who doesn't understand the meaning of "no." I've become increasingly impatient with the characters and dull plot line. If you can stick with it and don't expect much in the way of suspense, Tom Stechshulte is a terrific reader. But I need more ...
This book was actually very difficult to listen to. While any book narrated by TS is entertaining (he's one of my favorite narrators), this book went on and on too long with struggles, without adding much plot. It started with a lot of promise, but had to force myself to finish. Sorry, but it's definitely not my DH favorite.
I love the O'Malley's!! This book makes a great start to the series.
If you are new to the series, I would suggest you read this one before reading The Negotiator.
This is the prequel. It is a wonderful story, and the audio book brings the characters to life.
