    Most Highly Recommend

    The entire O'Malley series is a reviting combination of mystery, suspence and faith. There hasn't been a series that I have enjoyed more. Read Them! A Must!

    Loved the Entire Series

    In reading the books in the O'Malley Series they became like family. The characters have depth and spirit. They remind us to enjoy God and life. Each book delves in depth into one of the characters. All are believable and the books are easy to read. I am looking forward to the next installment in her new series.

    Loved the intrigue of this book - a great read.

    There are six books in this series by Dee Henderson. Each member featured has an intriging work situation and the same family line runs through all of the books. I couldn't put them down.

    Not up to her standards

    I recently discovered this series, and like the others I read very much for fast easy reads. However, this one just isn't up to par. I have to admit, the errors in grammar, punctuation and sentence structure started to bother me. I noted that in the others too, but not to the extent of this book. Also, there are pet phrases that are used too often. I wondered if the author rushed through writing this one. It just didn't seem to hang together. Even the death of Jennifer was not touching, it just seemed kind of stale. I didn't feel the presence of God in this book as I had in some of the others.

    good, but...

    Another episode in the O'Malley series is a welcome continuance in the storyline. I like it, but I find the the romance seems to bloom suddenly making it a little bit hard to swallow. The Dee Henderson style is complete and interesting as always, but some of the editting (i.e. how some of the sentences are structured.) is slightly awkward...consistant in all of Henderson's novels that I've read. Overall...an enjoyable read.

    The Healer

    I loved this book, it touched my heart and it brought me to tears. I have never read a book that has done that before. But it made me more thankful that I know God and he really is there when you need him and that he loves his childern.

    O'MALLEYS ARE QUITE A FAMILY

    I have read the first 5 O'Malley series of books and have ordered #6-The Rescuer. I can't wait to get it. These are books you can't seem to put down. They are filled with excitement, love and a wonderful example of God's love....

    Did I miss something?

    Okay, I skipped book 4 but I'd swear that book 3 ended with Quinn's proposal, complete with a dress and napkins and all the trimmings for he and Lisa to get married on Jennifer's wedding day. Now, in book 5, they're not married. Did the dress not fit? What did I miss? Next quibble - the family voted Jennifer in before they even met her? That doesn't make any sense at all. Other Trevor House kids are mentioned, why aren't they all O'Malleys if that's how it was done? Third quibble - the mystery is never even solved! Final beef - WHO EDITED THIS BOOK? or rather, who didn't? Ms. Henderson, your people aren't watching your back. You're for your, periods where there should be commas, nothing where there should be commas, plurals written with 's - One or two of these might slip by, but all of them together in a manuscript just spell SLOPPY. More continuity problems in the next book - Jennifer writes about needing help to walk to an event that occurred after she was wheelchair-bound. In the last book, the blind girl is described as looking at people several times. If I can remember those details as a casual reader, why can't the author - or her EDITOR, whose job it is to catch those things? I was given the books as a gift, and read the first three with interest (even though you'll never convince me that Marcus would even talk to a woman who dots her eyes with little hearts - please). I slogged through the others to be able to discuss with my friend, who is obviously a fan. Problem is, as good as Danger in the Shadows was, I don't think it merited two more books with the exact same plot. Once she leaves that familiar ground, the author seems to lose her train of thought. I appreciate what Ms. Henderson is trying to do, and I think Christian fiction needs strong voices willing to create interesting and involving stories that give practical application to the message. I'm just not sure this series quite succeeded in that effort.

    Best of the series!

    The Healer really moved me. It was the best of the O'Malley series. I so enjoy Dee Henderson's books. She is able to put together an incredibly in depth, thrilling story including the tragedies that many of us see daily. It's comforting to see the presence of God reveal himself throughout events.

    poignant love story

    They met when they were children at Trevor House, an orphanage located in the greater Chicago area. They looked out for one another and supported each other emotionally. When they grew up, they moved into an apartment together and changed their surname to O¿Malley. Though not bound by blood, they were a family in every sense of the word. Even when they went their own ways, they still visited with each other and communicated via the telephone. <P>Rachel O¿Malley works for the Red Cross as a trauma psychologist, helping people cope with tragedy. Her latest assignment is in Chicago, helping flood victims deal with the aftermath of losing most of their possessions. When she needs somebody to lean on, fire fighter captain Cole Parker is there for her. Cole, who wants to marry Rachel, also supports her during her sister¿s illness and when she is involved in a school shooting that is linked to a homicide case her sister is working hard to solve. <P>THE HEALER is a poignant love story, a five handkerchief reading experience that readers will never be able to forget because it is so beautiful. The heroine of this novel is a very special woman who gives of herself no matter the cost while Cole is her caring anchor. Dee Henderson is a brilliant storyteller who constantly writes tales that the audience wants to read. <P>Harriet Klausner
