"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.
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.
Really, really weak. The characters are unrealistic and the romance is silly. More of a Harlequin romance than anything else. Highly rated, so I expected much, much more. Total fluff.
Some unexpected twists and turns. Being pulled into the story.
This is clearly a book for people comfortable with Christianity, which I am. What is disappointing is how cliche the story and family became. Everyone down with big challenges and they get together to meet their challenges. Everyone is so larger then life as to be unbelievable.
Didn't really have one.
I'd make the characters less sappy and more human.
I thought the series might improve but it plays on the same template
First book I have read of Dee Henderson and LOVED IT. Loved the Narrator Tom also!
Back to look for more by this Author and Narrator!
He makes you feel like you are there and part of the lives of the charactors.
The reading was very good and a great story. I'm even listening to it again since I'm sure I missed some of the story the first time around
