    "THE NEGOTIATOR review:"

    Love the book. Love all of Dee Henderson's books so far. Great characters with great message. Narrator is just okay, though.

    "Entertaining"

    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.

    "excellant!"

    My husband and I enjoyed all of the O'Malley series. This was a great series to show several aspects of our relationship with God. We laughed and cried through every book along with the characters.

    "Great author and series"

    You find yourself entwined in the lives of the O'Mally family. You want to know their history. You want to be at the family gatherings.

    "Awesome and Exciting Start to a Series"

    This is a start to a series of intrigue and excitement. It is so easy to identify with the charaters and grow to love them, you actually become so involved you become part of the book and they become "your" family. The thread that continues through the series is so involving yet each book is completely stand alone capable. It is well researched with lots of details about the government agency that each works for and the thought provoking text is very well written. I am glad that I didn't find this series until all the books were available because it would have driven me crazy to have to wait for the next one. I strongly suggest if you like an exciting, involving and truly romantic story, that you choose this book as well as the rest of the series. This series is a combination of intrigue and excitement with the knight in shining armour fairytale that we all dream of.

    "Good tension but a bit cliche'd"

    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.

    "To much christianity"
    Would you try another book from Dee Henderson and/or Tom Stechschulte?

    I was very disappointed in a book that got 4.5 stars! I didn't enjoy the reader and when the story line got into so much "If she were christian then .......". This was just not my book and I feel cheated by the Publishers Review. Do NOT shove your religious beliefs down my throat. I would like my book credit back.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Dee Henderson again?

    NEVER


    What didn’t you like about Tom Stechschulte’s performance?

    Very mundane.

    "Love the O'Malley's"
    Where does The Negotiator rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    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.


    What other book might you compare The Negotiator to and why?

    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.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Can't narrow it down to one!


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Redemption...
