"An entertaining thriller-cum-romance-cum-conversion story is what readers get in this fast-paced novel....Christian readers will relish this intriguing tale." (Publishers Weekly)
Once again a little bit of everything in this story. You get drama, action, romance all in a Christ like environment. These will make you laugh and make you cry.
Loved it. Great story and great performance. Easy to listen to. Appreciated the adventure with the Christian view.
Struggled to finish. book was 15% mystery 85% preaching. BORING. Would not recommend to anyone.
I love series books and can't wait for the next one. Why can't they make movies out of good books like these instead of some of the trash that is out there.
love to read
Wonderful story- can't wait for the next installment! I feel like I'm part of the family. So strong and loving and each are the others best friends!!!
I enjoyed that Marcus was such a great guy to Sherri. Rare these days
The reader made Dave sound odd. Dave's voice began normal in the other books, but had a foreign accent or something in this reading. I don't much care for this reader, and the change for Dave made the experience worse.
I've loved the O'Malleys since I read the books some years ago. I have been put off, from time to time, with the lack of really well-written Christian fiction; at times I've felt that authors were published in the Christian market simply because they mentioned God and avoided vulgarity rather than for the excellence of their writing. Not so with Dee Henderson--her stories are well-thought out, and her characters multidimensional. The protagonists exhibit flaws and redemption in a realistic way and there are twists and turns to keep mystery enthusiasts engrossed as well as romantic moments for those who are looking for a love story.
This is the first of the series that I've listened to so far. The one complaint I've had is that the narrator tends to use a nasal tone to indicate a female speaking. I am sure there are great challenges in making a deep voice, such as this narrator has, sound feminine, but I am a little put off by the whiny vibe I get. That being said, I find the story to flow quite well and the narrator maintains excellent pacing. I will listen to the entire series, I'm certain.
Totally addicted to Audible.
This was my first Dee Henderson book and I was pleasantly surprised. A lot of suspense and a very sweet love story. I fell in love with the characters.
The reviews rave about the writing and the awards. I can't take the stories.
The stories are all too sappy for me.
I couldn't listen long enough to decide.
This was my first Dee Henderson book and I really enjoyed it. I thought the narrator was great! I thought it was a very good mystery story and I didn't think the romance overpowered the mystery. I will definitely listen to more of Henderson's books.
