Good story and easy to follow. Characters are captivating and narration is good. I'm a Christian so I liked the religious content. I will read more books in this series.
The best book in this series. I liked it very much. This is one of my favorite narrators, as well.

Hats off to Dee Henderson...wish she had more books written about this family...
Kate O'Malley is a strong heroine with an interesting job and psychological profile. She's also lovely, but of course completely unaware of her beauty and makes no effort to be so (that's the kind of cliche I'm talking about). She's an unbeliever which makes her off-limits to the rigid Dave (but I know men who refuse to be "unequally yoked" even for a date, so that is actually quite realistic). So we have that tension between romance and faith, and a pretty good mystery too. It's a good read. However, the O'Malley clan is not to be believed. They have a 4th of July gathering that is one long, trite series of cliches. It is an awkward and obvious contrivance that this huge stable of wonderful adopted sibs with fascinating jobs exists solely so that we can have lots more O'Malley books. Sort of like the Alpha Pets, I guess.
Probably an 8 since the other books were the Narnia books. But you can't compare any other author to C.S. Lewis. Not a very fair comparison! If I hadn't listened to the Narnia books I would have given this one a 9.
This is a wonderful book. I read it in the past.
The audio book brought the characters to life.
Any other O'Malley book. They are woven together. The characters are well written and the stories will keep you in suspense until the end.
Can't narrow it down to one!
Kept me up listening. Fits perfectly!
Meeting her brother at the end! Just great!
Dave - makes me laugh.
Made me get more books
This is the best book.
Kate O'Malley. Her character was strong, determined, and caring for her family. The way she worked through why and how she could believe in Jesus was incredible.
His voice is super clear to understand, and he does a wonderful job with accents and changes in types of voices to fit each different character.
Kate O'Malley. Her personality and character were so great. It would be super if more real people were like her.
Absolutely love Dee Henderson O'Malley series books.
Excellent first book to the O'Malley series. Lots of mystery and suspense along with the romance. Gotta love the O'Malley family! Great Christian book. Can't wait to get the rest of the series.
One other reviewer touched on it but I found the book predictable and the suspense lacking. The author never really says why this case in particular bothers Kate so much if as she says she gets one of this type every month or so.
I also felt that the religious aspect was more heavily weighted than anything else which was a definite disappointment considering I have never had a prospective "date" or friend question me about my faith only 36 hours into a relationship of any sort. Nor have I ever considered dropping a friend or relationship because our beliefs were different. That would be very judgmental/hard line stance for a Christian. Sorry but this will be the last book of this series I read.
