This is an elegantly written love story that will send your heart spinning on a most extraordinary and complex rollercoaster. You won’t see the twists and turns coming in this story, and you will treasure each of them. My heart didn’t want to let go of these unforgettably unique and beautiful characters. Mark Bishop loves his job as a commander in the Navy. He couldn’t ask for a more challenging or fulfilling job, and he leads one of the best crews in the Navy in his humble opinion. It would seem that he has it all, but in reality there is a huge piece that is missing in his life. He lost his first wife to a tragic accident, and now his heart has begun to long for a friend, a companion, and a lover again. Gina Gray has genius level intelligence. She has never grown comfortable with the gift of her mind, and has struggled to fit in and feel anything close to normal. Instead of embracing her talents, she fights against them not knowing how to deal with the impact of her impressive discoveries. She longs for love, but each time she opens up, her heart gets broken. When true love quietly walks into her tumultuous life, will she welcome it and hold it close or will she push it away in fear of it completely breaking her? The thought-provoking yet heart-warming mix of characters set the stage for a fascinating adventure and a breathtaking love affair. Watching as two very different people in opposite orbits slowly converge to fall into the same course was agonizing and stunning at the same time. Their simple yet powerful love healed their deep-seated hurt and opened up a new life for them that neither could have imagined. What touched my heart the most was watching Gina fight against and then slowly accept her gift with the help of Mark’s gentle love and persistent encouragement. He did all that he could to show her that she was made with a purpose. She was not a mistake or a freak. Who she is and what she could do was beautiful and purposeful, and he made it his mission to show her this until she finally believed it herself. He gave her life meaning and direction, and she filled the empty part of his heart. If only we all had people like Mark in our life to direct us to God when we lose our way and show us how beautiful we are despite our ugly scars. Dee Henderson continues to take my breath away with her stories that reach into your heart and make you realize just how loved and cherished you are. It doesn’t matter how different and unique a person is, they are just as important and valuable as everyone else. In reality, those people are the ones that God usually chooses to use in a profound way. He is able to show Himself through those that we view as weak and strange. Through their flaws and differences we are granted a view into how multi-faceted and incomprehensible our magnificent God really is. Do not underestimate anyone because God could use them to touch your life in the most unexpected way.

I have read all of Dee Henderson's books and enjoyed everyone of them, but I really had a hard time getting into this one. There was so much science details that cause me to be bored at times. It seemed to not go as deep into the characters as most of her books. I am looking forward to more of her books and hope they continue to be good reads.

Henderson is one of my favorite authors, and this book was very enjoyable. As with other books of hers, this one ties in characters of prior books, and I like that continuity. It gives a feeling the characters live beyond the pages of the book that featured them. However, if you are looking for a solid adventure involving the submarine service, I found this aspect disappointing. The intrigue of submarine warfare just wasn't there. If you want that, I suggest Tom Clancy's "SSN". I also thought the males in pursuit of Gina Gray were far too easy going toward each other as rivals for her hand. Men just aren't wired that way.

Too Little Story, Way Too Much Detail Fans of Dee Henderson may be surprised and/or disappointed by this book.  For an author with such a large number of admirers, this indicates a lot of mixed reactions.   The storyline is appealing and the settings unusual and interesting, but the amount of scientific and naval submarine detail weighs heavy and makes a short story into a long, lackluster account of events.  Character development is shallow and the personal interactions lacked passion and depth of emotion.  The reader does not feel in tune with the characters and is unlikely to empathize.  Even during the climactic crisis incident, readers will not feel the usual level of suspense. The events move across the country and out to sea, but the story unfolds haphazardly, with readers feeling no insight into the characters’ thoughts and feelings.  It is a simple story of good people, but just misses the mark for entertainment value.   I was given a free copy of this book by Bethany House for the purpose of review.  My opinions are truthful and my own.

No one can write a novel like Dee Henderson!  Don't get me wrong. There are a lot of excellent authors who write wonder, engaging stories that change lives and alter attitudes. However, Dee Henderson is number one in my opinion. In her new novel, "Undetected" Ms. Henderson introduces us to two of the most loveable characters. I wish they were real and in my life. Who wouldn't want Christian friends like Mark Bishop, Naval Commander of the USS Nevada nuclear sub, and Gina Grey, Gina, the Genius, who can simplify the most complex scientific ideas, yet still can't figure out personal relationships? Their love story will make you cry, cheer, smile. Henderson writes powerfully about the struggles these two have with their faith and living a life in which they have to make difficult decisions that could mean life or death for millions of people. Henderson does her research. I learned about what life onboard a submarine for 90-days is like, and how it affects not only the submariners but their families. It made the characters more real and believable. I gained a greater respect for those who choose the Navy as their career and defend our country and the world from hundreds of feet beneath the ocean. This book is a keeper and a sharer. It's too good not to share, and yet I want to hold on to it and read it over again and again. It is a powerful Christian book, safe to give to tweens and teens. In fact, I would recommend allowing young women just starting to date or go off to college to read any of Dee Henderson's books to get a good look at what a healthy relationship between a godly man and woman should look like. Don't miss this romantic suspense. I have read all but one or two of Dee Henderson's books and have never found one I did thoroughly enjoy. I can't wait to see what her next book holds.

As always, Dee Henderson comes through with another great read! I couldn't put it down, often reading 100 pages in one sitting. It can get a little drug out at times, but still a great read. Highly recommend.

Undetected by Dee Henderson is another great book by this author. Mark Bishop is the Commander of a ballistic missile submarine but when someone asks him what he does for a living he simply replies, “I’m in the Navy.” This is an extreme understatement for his job carries responsibilities that are not seen in any other job in the military. Mark is a widower and with all his heart he wants to come home to someone after spending several months at sea in a submarine with hundreds of men. He is attracted to Gina Gray but feels that maybe she is too young for him. Gina does ocean science research and her job is so important and secret that she has round the clock military protection. She would love to be married but due to a failed relationship, she spends nearly all her time working, sometimes even sleeping at her office. This work situation leaves her no time for a social life. She has just made a very important discovery and she needs Mark Bishop’s help to prove her theory. Fortunately, this will give them time together to get to know each other. As with all her books, Dee Henderson did an excellent job in the development of all aspects of this story. It is very evident that she did the research necessary to write such a detailed story about life on a submarine and other jobs in the Navy. Also, she wrote in such a way that it was easy to understand what was happening on the submarine and with Gina’s work. All the characters were so well developed that I felt as if each one was a friend with Mark and Gina being close friends. Gina did not want to spend time on the submarine and this segment of the story was so real that I was feeling the same fear as Gina. There were several twists and turns to the plot line and these just added to the enjoyment of the story and kept me guessing as to what was going to happen. The characters and dialogue were so well developed that I had the feeling as if I were right in the middle of the action taking place on the submarine. I highly recommend this book to anyone that loves a well written story that is also a learning experience. There is romance and enough mystery to keep one reading and guessing. Bethany House provided me with a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.

Since Dee Henderson’s return her books have been very heady and lengthy. This book is no exception, however, unlike the previous one that focused a great deal on coin collections this one looks at topics that a broader audience would enjoy. I loved Gina Gray as the brilliant expert on sonar technology. She has a sweet almost innocent personality but she also had a sassy side as she interacted with Mark Bishop. Throughout most of the story I really liked his character, although there was a section about halfway through the book I felt like he was a little aggressive in his relationship with Gina. Even with that overall he was a great character. I enjoyed the storyline with the different technologies discussed in regards to the submarines and war tactics. I would love to know how much of the science described in the story is feasible. The romance was well done and had an interesting aspect to it that I don’t think I’ve seen before. Each of the characters grew in their faith and a deeper understanding of what it means to trust God. This is my favorite Henderson book since her return and would recommend it to those who have enjoyed previous Henderson’s books or if you enjoy books that focus around the Navy and Naval ships.

This was an enjoyable read. I know many have bemoaned the loss of the O'Malleys. That was a special series. I love that in Undetected it had twinges of a Clancy novel without getting bogged down in the nitty-gritty details. This book has an edge of thriller to it, and a slice of romance. It's not your typical romance because the heroine has to grow into love, but I enjoyed the way it was different from the typical romances that are available.

Undetected was a great way to finish off the series of the Uncommon Heros. Even if it wasn't listed in that group it just is the final touch. Great reasearch and insight of those with a very high IQ and the emotional understanding of those who are in the Navy. Could not put it down!

This is not the first book of Dee’s that I have read, however this is the first book that I have read in her new series. As always Dee’s writing is superb. She does a great job of giving you all the details and the past on the characters so that you know who they are and what their life has been like. In addition, I also like how she incorporates religion into the story. She does it without you even knowing that it is a key part of the book. This is nice especially for those readers who may want to read the story but who may not want to read an over abundance on religion. The only part that I found difficult about the book was all the scientific and Navy terminology in the book. I think there is a need for the information in the book but it felt like it took up half the book. It is reason that it took me a while to get through the book because at times I felt like it overshadowed the story that Dee was trying to tell. About half way through the book I finally felt there was a story and I wanted to find out what happened. I think that the book was very well written and had a great story. I felt that after reading it I had a better understanding of the Navy and about submarines that I didn’t know before.  I think that Dee wrote a great story that needed to be told and has not been told before. I am very interested in reading more of Dee’s books and can’t wait to see what she has in store for the next one in the series.

I've loved Ms. Henderson's  books for a VERY long time. In fact I believe she was my first foray into Christian Suspense novels. She researches exhaustively and that is very much appreciated on the reader's end, since the book's subject just makes SO much more sense when you understand the material or the character's life.  This book was no exception: awesome research so I understand the setting and plot of the book, but it was too slow. Catch 22, you need the knowledge to understand, but getting the knowledge substantially slows down plot progression.   Real heroes and real life situations with REAL emotions that most can relate to, all ALWAYS present in her books. The romance was slow going, but again it was real.  I loved getting to know these characters (+ a look ahead into the lives of her last book's heroes) and am hoping her next book reconnects us with Ann Silver, so we can catch up with the 'real' O'Malleys. I received a copy from Netgalley to review, but my thoughts are my own.

Dee Henderson didn't let me down. I love her stories. This isn't a riveting adventure. Its a slow paced wonderful story of how God can help lead even those that don't know they are intended for each other to find each other. Great story can't wait for the next one.

Undetected By Dee Henderson Gina Gray is smart and can come up with solutions to problems that were thought to have no possible solution.  She has the ability to see simplicity in the complex, but when it comes to personal relationships Gina is at a loss.  And her latest break-up has her seeking her seeking her brother's help.  Asking Jeff to help her find someone who won't be threatened by the way her mind works seems like a huge favor to ask of someone, but Gina needs help and she trusts Jeff. Mark Bishop loves his life as a commander aboard the USS Nevada - a ballistic missile submarine in the US Navy.  Mark still misses his wife, though it has only been a few years since she died.  But he needs to move on, he knows Melinda would have wanted him to.  But the life of a Navy Commander is demanding and can put an extra strain on a marriage.   When his best friend Jeff Gray approaches him about going out with his sister Gina, Mark turns him down because Gina is 10 years younger than him.  But when he starts working with Gina on her newest discovery, he realizes he may have made a mistake.  Is it too late to remedy the situation or will Jeff's second choice for Gina steal her heart before Mark can reveal his? I really enjoyed the behind the scenes look at the life of a submarine crew.  It was an interesting and intriguing setting for the rest of the story.  Sometimes (for those not involved in this life) the strains that this puts on their personal  life are fully appreciated and understood. Dee Henderson does a wonderful job weaving an engaging and entertaining story.  This can be a stand-alone story though there are a couple of characters from Unspoken who make a quick appearance in the story.  If you like intense and exciting books that will capture your attention from cover to cover you don't want to miss Undetected!
