Books For The Road - Danger In The Shadows


It's been a while since I've read a Dee Henderson book. I truly enjoyed her O'Malley series so when the opportunity to read another of her stories came along, I took advantage. While Danger In The Shadow was not as enjoyable for me as the series of books I read, it was a well-developed and unusual romance flavored with suspense.

Sara Walsh lives with a threat from the past. As the daughter of an ambassador,
the memory of the abduction of her and her twin sister haunts her. She blames herself for her sister's death. The threats of the kidnapper still on the loose have made her a prisoner of her security web for all of her life.

When she finds herself in an elevator with Adam Black, ex-football star, things change. Adam and Sara feel a connection and Adam insists on pursuing it. He feels God has placed her in his life and he is determined to share that life with Sara whatever the cost.
While the suspense element builds in the story, the action happens more "off stage." The romantic elements are center stage and draw the reader into the love story. Read it for the romance not the suspense.

I LOVE Danger in the Shadows. It's one of the books I read when I was first getting into Christian fiction. Amazing writing. The entire O'Malley series is a must-read!
