Reading Review: Dee Henderson


Dee Henderson is an amazing author! I was so surprised when I discovered not many people were familiar with her wonderful books. Although all her novels are worth a read, my favorite (and my sister’s) series is The O’Malley Series. The O’Malley series follows an astonishing family as they face roadblocks in their road to finding Christ. This family is like none I’ve ever seen, and not just because they all have COOL jobs! These seven young adults met each other when they were younger and orphans. They created a bond so tight that after they were old enough to move out on their own, they all legally changed their names and became a brand new unique group. Each book in the O’Malley series focuses on one of the siblings. While the rest of them are present throughout the novel, they are there as a support team.


The first in the series is called The Negotiator. It follows Kate O’Malley and her life as a police negotiator. Throughout the book, Kate struggles with falling in love, accepting Christ, and keeping herself alive.


The second in the series is called The Guardian. The Guardian follows Marcus O’Malley and the struggles he faces as a U.S. Marshall. Marcus has always been the big brother of the group. But as he struggles to rediscover his faith, he may need some support from his family.


The Truth Seeker is the third book in the series. This novel follows Lisa O’Malley and her investigations as a forensic pathologist. Lisa is good at what she does, but so is the killer. After discovering the truth of some recent murders, Lisa goes missing. Will her secret admirer Marshall Quinn Diamond and her family find her in time?


Jack O’Malley is the focus of the fourth book in the series. As The Protector, Jack works as a firefighter who is up against a heartless serial arsonist. In this fast paced thriller, we are introduced to Cassie Ellis. Together they will struggle with the dangers of past, present, and future fires. Will they find their faith in the process?


The fifth book in the series is The Healer. This book focuses Rachel O’Malley. Rachel specializes in working with children who have suffered trauma. The Healer follows Rachel as she deals with a school shooting in her community.


The final book in the series is The Rescuer. The Rescuer follows Stephen O’Malley as he struggles to deal with a personal tragedy while maintaining his job as a paramedic. With one love one dead and one in danger, will Stephen be able to pull it together to be The Rescuer?


I know you will enjoy all these thrilling and fast paced novels. This is definitely a series you won’t want to put down. After you are done, go back and read Dangers In The Shadows. This is a prequel to the O’Malley series. Enjoy!

I wish I could sit down and read a good book but I can't. I don't have the patience and I get bored rather quickly. Funny thing though...........I don't get bored reading blogs and can keep reading them for hour on end. LOL

Dee Henderson is one of my favorites. My only disappointment is that there aren't enough!

The O'Malley series especially spoke to me that you can create your own family.... even though they are not related by blood they are closer than most siblings.
