    I can find a book to love in any genre -- a beautifully written classic, an interesting mystery or sci-fi, a trashy romance. Bring it!

    "Do not let this book fool you!"

    STORY - The Negotiator is an inspirational book but, foremost, it is an excellent mystery/romance. The excitement starts early in the story and doesn't let up. There is a complex crime, interesting investigation, emotional hostage negotiations and an engaging romance. Sprinkled through the 10 1/2 hours there is about 30 minutes of religious conversation, but it fits with the story line well and is not overpowering. The language is clean and there is no sex or alcohol, but do not mistake this book for wimpy religious chick lit!

    NARRATOR - The narrator is okay, but there are much better ones out there. He doesn't do female characters well, and occasionally I got confused who was speaking. Sometimes he pauses midsentence and then reads the rest of it like he lost his place, but these minor irritations don't detract from the total experience.

    BOTTOM LINE - This is a very good book. I'm moving on to the next one in the series.

    Story
    "The O'Malley Clan - one at a time"

    Before you listen to this great book, PLEASE read "Danger in the Shadows" first (winner of multiple book awards). You will better understand people that come in and out of this story after reading that book.

    Kate O'Malley is a negotiator, and the first story of the O'Malley "family," orphans who met in a home and who made the decision to become a family...they chose their own last name, and the books slowly reveal bits and pieces of how they came to the home, met, and became family. I love every single book...I read them when they first came out, but hearing them just adds another dimension to the great stories.

    "The O'Malleys"

    This is the kind of book you hate to see come to an end. It's exciting to know there are more in the series! My husband enjoys these as well and so on our long trips to visit the kids we listen to these. Makes you not want to stop for dinner

    "well yeah but..."

    I agree this book series is a little trite, but actually, Ms. Henderson has obviously done good research into the individual careers of her protagonists. I like the stories. I just ignore the trite-ness and I'm glad that the world of relaxation literature has some good interesting Christian stories. What an awesome way to explain the gospel and the proofs of Jesus and the church. That got the extra star handsdown.

    "Worth the Listen"

    This is the first installment in the O'Malley series. I enjoyed this book, it was suspenseful and it had a great christian theme. I think there could of been a little more romance but the book was still good. I have listened to the entire O'Malley series and this is one of the best, though the entire series is very good. I think it is good to see christians operating in these type of roles.

    "One of My Favorites"
    Any additional comments?

    One of my favorite books now in audio. Tom Stechsulte's narration was great. I could easily follow the story and who was talking. A heartwarming police/romance/inspirational story well worth the time.
