(Note: I wrote this review years ago, and some of my opinions about this book have changed, but since I still like the review, I don't want to remove it.)

This book is awesome. The plot was believable, suitably complicated, and cleverly unfolded. It was exceptional. Especially since it's a Christian romance fiction novel. This book succeeded far and beyond my expectations for a book of that genre.

The characters were appealing and did not fall into the stereotypes which appear to dominate books of

Excellent book. I've read several of Dee Henderson's books and enjoyed them all. I guess they are really for women, but honestly I enjoy a good story especially when the gospel is incorporated into the story. My Mom actually had just read the book and passed it to me knowing I love to read mysteries. The book is about a family, the O'Malleys, that are not related by blood. They all grew up as foster kids, but became close and decided to change their last name so they could be a family. This book ...more

Lisa O'malley comes off from the very begining as a very fascinating character. She is smart and funny. She has a very grim job, but she keeps her witts about her, and quite honestly the investigative process is seen more clearly in this book...and I loved that. The mystery seemed deeper than in the previous books and you can see that Dee Henderson is getting better and better. I also adored Quinn, he is a cowoboy, a marshall, and above all else a gentleman who doesn't push himself on people. Bo ...more

I really like this series, not as predictable and lacking in imagination or character development as a lot of Christian fiction. The plots are interesting and kept me guessing, but I am also not a mystery buff. There are some aspects that left alot to be desired. I'm on book 4 and only about 6 months have past, so overall 4 huge cases involving arson, kidnapping, witness protection, etc. It would have been better to spread it out over several years. Also, while the questions of faith are deep an ...more
Not the best book I've ever read. The book before this one and this one were so predictable. I enjoyed the characters, though they seem to be such extremes. Can't anybody in this family just fall in love with somebody with some normalcy-with out live or death experiences? Well I guess it's a thriller whodunit novel. But together all 7 of them to each keep having these experiences is too unrealistic, though their jobs are all dangerous types, I guess that is why the author gets away with it. Mayb ...more

Recommends it for: Fans of shows like CSI & Flashpoint
The entire O'Malley series pretty much has the same plot line. The main character is an O'Malley adopted sibling and in some kind of law enforcement or first responder position. That person is either a Christian who falls for a non-Christian or a non-Christian who falls for a Christian. One of them is in danger. The non-Christian eventually gets saved spiritually and the person in danger eventually is safe.

Not very deep, but they are entertaining and fairly well written. It is a nice change fro
My best friend has been bugging me to read all of Dee Henderson's books for YEARS now... and I'm so glad I started them.
I like the fact that each book is a mystery (usually some kind of murder mystery! YES!) and also throws in some Christian lit-- sometimes the Christian ties can be a little too heavy and obvious, but overall, very well written.

The Truth Seeker had a bit more mystery than the rest, and I enjoyed that. However, this one was also a bit darker... I'm not sure if I liked that-- bu
I have really enjoyed this series. Mysteries involving grim situations that require FBI agents, crisis negotiators, U.S. Marshalls, forensic pathologists and more (those are the professions of the lead characters in the first four books) aren’t usually the books I pick up for fun. But I’m so glad I finally got around to this series.

The books are page turners; I have a new respect for the long hours and stress endured by law enforcement and emergency personnel. Except for the prequel, each book i
Lisa O'Malley is a forensic pathologist, so it's not surprising that she's used to dead bodies, but when she starts working on some cold cases she finds some surprising evidence, evidence that brings her brother's U.S. Marshal partner Quinn back as they investigate cases that have haunted them both for years.

Jennifer's is planning her wedding, so they're all busy catching up with each other (and playing practical jokes), revealing how closely-knit the O'Malleys really are. Quinn's also trying to
Christian suspense romance. Third book I've read from this author and I found this one to be the first one where I could feel a bit of a connection to the characters. The author writes gripping action and suspense scenes. The slower scenes seem to bog down and the dialogue loses me. Still reading this series, I like the people so far and want to know what happens in this soap opera of a series. In this book the lady is sort of a CSI type and she gets too close to solving a cold case and the US M ...more
Dee Henderson is an amazing author of Christian suspenseful romance novels and in my opinion this is the best of the O’Malley series. Lisa, a doctor that uses her credentials to be a forensic pathologist, is trying to solve a 25 year old mystery with Quinn, her brothers partner, who has a personal interest in the case. Meanwhile, Lisa’s best friend, her sister Kate, and her older brother, Marcus, have been pushing her towards Christianity after recently coming to Christ themselves. Lisa st

This one, for me, was a little slower than prior books in the series. It was fun getting to know Quinn, the hero of the book. We meet him in prior books, but didn't get to know him until now. My impression of him changed completely. I had him pictured in my mind as an old grumpy man. Was I ever mistaken. Enjoyed getting to meet the real Quinn.

I didn't like his prior relationships with Jennifer and Kate - more Jennifer than Kate. Kate was more a friend, but it still made me a little uncomfortabl
The third book in the O'Malley series was a bit slower going, but still didn't disappoint. I have an idea why I am finding each of these books so interesting, aside from their Criminal Minds/Castle/CSI/Bones bent. Each of these books have been dealing with a specific problem that new or returning Christians may face. In The Negotiator, it was the subject of God's justice and mercy, with The Guardian, it was prayer, this one dealt with the Resurrection. So far, each book has both made me think, a ...more
So glad I chose to re-read this series - it's just as good the 2nd time around, if not better. I loved following Lisa & Quinn's story. It is neat to watch their relationship (both personally and professionally) develop in the present while they are both looking for answers to some deep questions and trying to come to terms with dark parts of their past. It's romance and suspense woven together at their finest. Add in the hilarious antics of the rest of the O'Malley family and you've got a gr ...more

The O'Malley clan is back, this time with the focus on Lisa. Lisa, a forensic pathologist, often lets her curiosity get the best of her and gets herself into notorious scrapes. After getting injured on the job, Lisa finds herself trying to solve cold cases, only to have the realization that they may be somehow connected. With the aid of Quinn (a fellow US Marshall with Marcus), Lisa sets out to find a killer, but ends up in harms way herself.
Lisa is such a unique, quirky character. She has so mu
Ashley Carmichael
Although the storyline is basically predictable (if you don't figure out who the killer is in the first few chapters...well...I'm sorry for you) the characters are fascinating and their development, particularly their psychology and motivation, are well written. All in all an enjoyable read.

This whole series was good and kept me on my toes. I love series about families, because I like to know how everyone else (Who's book has already been written) is doing... not to mention what this sibling, which had already been previously mentioned, is doing...
Jeni Enjaian
This book is my favorite of the series simply because I like the leading characters more than the others. (I'm not really sure why.) the book was paced well with reasonable suspense built in. The characters were well developed. I had only two issues. One, Lisa seemed to heal from the fall relatively quickly. It could however be that I missed the fact that more time had passed between scenes than I realized. Two, Henderson's explanation of the culprit's motivation seemed a bit lacking as did the ...more

women have been appearing dead. someones dad just died in a house fire. his son is a suspect. the son made a mistake. all the dead women dead lead back to him. the lady investigating the deaths was kidnapped by the son.
I really liked this story about Lisa O'Malley. She's a strong, independent woman with a difficult past. While being injured investigating a fire death scene, she is forced on desk duty. But when her case seems to intertwine with Quinn's case (i love Quinn) they're relationship moves to a whole new level. Although Quinn loved her from the start, which was so sweet and obvious, he wanted her to believe. It's only when Lisa gets herself in trouble one last time where her heart is changed.
A great s
Amanda Hunsaker
This series continues to be intriguing and well-written. This book is more suspenseful than the others. Several times I needed to have someone there to make sure that I didn't jump at shadows.
My favorite of the series so far, it just felt real. The timing was right on throughout, I like all of them, but the others seemed like the romance and conversions were a little rushed.
Tristan Leovy
The one O'Malley that always seems to get into trouble digs into cold case files that connects to some untiedstrings on Quinn Diamonds end. Quinn Diamond has been wanting to go out with Lisa for a long time but the one thing that does pull them together are the cases from the past. when their jobs and hearts start to intertwine, its begins to become harder, considering the fact that Lisa is not a believer and that she gets kidnapped but the killer of several unsolved cases. Now, Lisa test how bi ...more
Debbie Roberts
Really love this author and her Christian fiction style. Clean content but great suspense and likable characters. This is book three in a 6 book series.
Loved this one also! I especially love how the characters have to work thru crises as well as their search for Jesus. These are both very believably written.

“Quinn hesitated, then said what his heart demanded."Lizzy, even if you don't believe, I will still be your friend. Nothing is going to change that. I'm loyal to my friends for a lifetime. There are no qualifications."
She just looked at him for a long time, and then the smile that could make his heart roll over appeared. She got to her feet and lightly tapped his arm with the sombrero. "You're forgiven for asking me out fourth."
She would have passed him but he snagged her hand. "Lizzy."
She stopped.
"I saved the best for last.”
