Sorry, too mushy.

So I thought I would give Christian fiction a try and I must say that I was disappointed. The story sounded exciting enough, but I feel there was far too much of the mushy love story development and therefore the it moved very slowly. The basis for the story is great; after listening to it there is absolutely no doubt that the love element of the story took precedence over the murder story in the author's mind. Sorry, maybe I'm just being a guy; I had even turned it off for a few days and then finally broke down and gave it another chance.

Maybe someone who normally prefers love stories will like this one, others beware...

Excellent story and narration.

I love all of Dee Henderson's books. Tom Stechschulte is a great narrator. I love the storyline of the O'Malley family. This book is full of suspense, mystery, sadness, happiness, and love. Thank you Dee Henderson for keeping your books free from profanity and sex.
