it's not preaching but going on about how important is thinking about God... etc.. Religious beliefs are in my point of view really private and not to be bragged about. Real religious love is leaving anyone the space to believe --- or not. In this case "Lovely" does not add anything to the story. Also the apalling diet they have during the whole story. No fruit, no vegetable nor salad is ever mentioned but countless fries, hamburgers, icecreams, popcorns etc... I think she should look for info at a nutritionist's. And sorry about speaking my mind but two people fall in love and get together in this story and there is never ever a mention about sex nor desire. Is this real??? Is Dee Henderson a nun ?
I would check carefully
Absolutely, he did a great job with the book
None but cut out the religious insights and get into the nutrition problem in a world where too many are obese as it is (in Europe too..)
Nice intrigue but writing heavy at times
Say something about yourself!
No. Since I could not finish the book I could not recommend it to others.
It lacked passion and chemistry.
The narration was wonderful and what kept me trying to listen longer, but unfortunately I could not finish the book.
The fact that it is a Christian book might not have kept me from purchasing the story, but I do wish I had known going into it. I really like suspense romances but this was NOT a romance. There was no passion and I didn't even feel chemistry between the main characters. I felt like it was more of a business merger then a budding romance. Ms. Henderson seems to have a large fan base and that's wonderful, but I thought a review should be posted letting others know what they are going into.
I have read all of Dee Henderson's books and for the most part, they are all wonderful. Dee hasn't written any books in a while so when this book came out, I immediately purchased it. I really wanted this to be a good book but instead of a good story, what I got was a great disappointment. One, Dee spent a great deal of time talking about her other books which I found to be very tacky and boring. In fact, it was so bad I wanted to fast forward through these parts which would of meant that I would of had to fast forward through a lot of the book. Two, there were way too many stories going on at one time. The first hour or two was great then for the next 9-10 hours it was torture. The final hour was good. In my opinion, the main characters voice was horrible. At times it was simply unbearable. I guess I expected more from Dee after the O'Malley series. I'm sorry Dee, but I simply cannot recommend this book to others.
Someone who likes Christian romance.
Perhaps I didn't read the blurb well enough, but I thought this was going to be a crime thriller - turned out to be a Christian romance full of one-dimensional characters of high moral standing....boring.
The narrator read women's voices in a really annoying way.
I din't get all the way to the end, so not sure.
I would definitely recommend this book, but only if they first read Dee's OMalley and Military Series. I've enjoyed her stories so much, and re-read them often. Was so excited when I saw she FINALLY published another.
In the beginning, I was ready to email her and ask her why she she didn't use the correct names. I recognized Dave and Kate right away, but it was Richards, not Sinclair. Glad I waited. Loved the way she pulled it all together. Loved the way I could recognize all her characters. So satisfying. I absolutely LOVED all of it.
At the end, that she married Paul.
I did have an extreme reaction. I did both, with a lot of OHHHS in there too.
Please Dee, don't wait so long to write more. I've re-read you so much, I could probably quote dialogue. You're a very gifted writer. A feel good writer. We need more.
This is Christian fiction. This is not just a mystery/romance. If you're not into devotional and Christian proseletizing don't buy. I am not and as soon as the FBI agent/hero started talking to Jesus I deleted it. If you like that kind of literature you would probably love this.
As I said in the body of my review, this is Christian fiction mis-described as mystery and romance.
It was o.k. though not great.
I want my money back.
Audible addicted love mystery,lately stuck on love story. Mother of 1 Labrador and 1 perfect man. Work way too hard, and so ready to be retired
Anything base on faith should and was excellent.david was great I didn't like his lady voice but the book compensated for it. No fast forward for this one. My first faith mystery love story been looking for the right mix Dee achieved that. So no steamy sex so if your looking for a great suspense thriller with some true love this is the book for you...got. To love Lovely .....🌹
Being able to listen to a new Dee Henderson book thrilled me. She is one of my favorite
authors and this book intertwined some of the OMalley characters, too. Made it seem like
an autobiography almost. Many twists and turns and her usual strong Christian message
made this a very enjoyable experience. I much prefer a good clean story and she always keeps me involved and interested in the characters. I can relate to Ann and some of her struggles. Love the mystery, thrills and the romance. More, Dee, please??
Twist and Turns!!!
First, I must give props to Davis Devries. His performance was awesome and made a good story even better. There were so many twist, turns and excitement in this story I was on the edge of my seat. Full Disclosure was well written. Every scene connected perfectly. That's what I enjoyed most. It all came together in the end. Spoiler: I knew the VP was shady early on. He was a smooth character and listening to his take down was AWESOME!!
I believe this novel is tagged as a romance. I got a murder mystery, suspense, thriller and romance all wrapped up into one. A clean cut Christian Romance. Not what I expected, and well worth the purchase.
I knew the VP was shady. Since he and Ann were so close, I started to doubt her as well. The scene were Ann reveled what happen in the cabin, was ONE of my favorites.
OMG, the opening scene was good as well. It was so well written, and set the movements of the book in place. AWESOME.
I LOL often. Scenes with Black/Midnight the dog were hilarious.
Leave out the preaching. Felt it interfered with the flow of the story.
No. I'm not an overly religious person and don't appreciate it being the central point of a story.
He covered the full spectrum, making each individual distinguishable.
Entirely up to the author but I won't be purchasing it.
In the synopsis, it should have been noted that this is a very religion-oriented book.
