Not bad but could be betterHenderson is a popular writer so I'm sure she can endure a critical review This is the first of her books that I've read and the good news is that I finished it The novel begins well with a hostage scene and we are quickly introduced to the main characters; Kate from the O'Malley clan and Dave, an FBI investigator who is randomly caught up in the drama I was interested at this point and looking forward to the rest of the story We learn early on that Dave is a Christian and assumes that Kate shares his faith He develops feelings for her but then discovers that she isn't a Christian The author obviously understands the Biblical teaching about this issue because she has both characters battling with their feelings throughout Dave battles because he is a Christian and knows he cannot date a nonbeliever and Kate because she doesn't date cops However, I feel the author made some poor choices here Rather than fleeing from temptation which is what the Bible instructs us to do Dave pursues Kate relentlessly under the guise of friendship all the while knowing that one of them will get hurt He presumes that eventually she will convert and lo and behold.she does I appreciate this is fiction but it's meant to be Christian fiction so it shouldn't undermine Biblical principles The moral of this story appears to be that if we want something really, really badly and ask God for it, we will eventually get it, even if we are disobedient in the process It demonstrates a lack of faith; if God wanted these two people to be together He would eventually bring it about even if they had honoured Him by keeping their distance I just don't think this type of lesson will be very helpful for Christians struggling with feelings for nonbelievers or those who think they can convert a nonbelieving partner I found the whole idea of the O'Malley siblings forming their family and all changing their names somewhat bizarre They are all close in age and mostly high fliers in the secular world What happens when they develop feelings within their group which seems inevitable as they are so close and spend so much time with each other They are now siblings in name and any attachments would be taboo.Maybe this is because I'm from England and this is a US writer, I just find the whole concept slightly odd.In terms of salvation, one of the siblings comments that if Kate converts then there will be two Christians in the family which statistically will make itlikely for them to be able to persuade the others to become Christians Whilst I understand the sentiment, salvation is an act of God in a person's heart not a work of man Sometimes, people are converted through hearing a really obscure Bible text whilst other people hear the whole Gospel repeatedly yet are unmoved This may seem like a minor point, but it gets to the heart of the process of salvation.Overall, the story didn't grip me I found the relationship between Kate and Dave a bit too gushy for the characters that were initially presented and they fell in love way too easily I also felt the ending of the book was dragged out.I would read another of these books It was fine for some light reading with no swearing or sex scenes and the violence wasn't too graphic.https://christianmissionaryuk.blogspo Learning about a negotiator was very interesting to me Unlike “Danger in the Shadows,” the threat in this book felt real and I really enjoyed the tension throughout it.The spiritual thread Wow I’m learning to expect a powerful spiritual lesson in Dee Henderson’s books, and I love that I especially liked Kate’s whole struggle to accept Jesus Christ as Savior It felt real and believable She wasn’t a character who heard about the Gospel and knew it was her answer She had questions—deep questions Henderson covered a lot of deep topics in this book.I didn’t exactly like how Dave fell in love with an unbeliever, even though he knew he shouldn’t I get that it’s reallife and it happens, but it made me slightly uncomfortable.Now that I’ve read a full book that actually has the O’Malley’s in it, I know why people love this series Not only are there good doctrinal topics, but the O’Malley family has a rich back story I look forward to the rest of the series. That was so good! That is, if you rearrange all the commas and put them in their proper places ;) I really tried to like this book and get carried away by the story Really, I did But I couldn't get past the totally unrealistic characters Could there really be that many perfect, gorgeous, intelligent, rich, single, patriotic career professionals (with highpaying, exciting careers) all in one family? Throw in a mansion and a private jet owned by a studly FBI love interest (with an alluring British accent of all things), some intrigue and romance and it was just a little over the top for me I just couldn't relate to the characters at all On the plus side, I did appreciate the author attempting to put a spiritual message in the book and weighing in on the paradox of God's mercy vs justice It seemed a bit forced though I did finish the book because there was enough mystery to keep me wondering whodunit The book was okay but I don't know that I will bother within the series I know this book was rated highly by others so I hate to say it but maybe it's just me or the mood I'm currently in To my friends and mom who really liked this one, Sorry, gals.

Oh my, this was such a good book Not being much of a copsshow watcher (I don’t really watch TV) I wasn’t nearly as aware of the roll of a negotiator Their job is to defuse dangerous or potentially dangerous situations with the goal of resolving the crisis in a manner where nobody is injured Kate O’Malley is a negotiator with the Chicago police force I’m not sure that what she did with the first negotiation in the book is typical, but she walked into an extremely dangerous bank hostage situation with no bulletproof vest on, and just sat down as calmly as can be with the intent of talking and releasing tension.Meanwhile, an FBI agent (Dave Richman) was hiding under the reception desk and only she could see him After the crisis, they became friends, and to him, that’s all they could be He's a believer she's not However, with her youngest sister (in the 0.6 prequel I just finished) having just come to faith, Kate is being prayed over and God is working on her heart Kate lived in an abusive household before she was taken away from her family to live the rest of her childhood in an orphanage She and her brothers and sisters (who adopted each other at The Trevor House, each changing their names as adults to O’Malley), all became scrappy survivors Each serious professionals Each tough and not all together trusting Relying on themselves and each other was vital Two people in her life are now sharing with Kate that there’s another person she can rely on, someone much bigger, someone who loves herthan she can imagine Dave prays for openings and the right words One of the most amazing conversations about mercy and justice I've ever read took place after one of those prayers.But oh, there’s so muchto this story It just never stops I couldn’t put this book down Intense, romantic, amazing gospel presentations, wonderful questions and terrific writing Can’t wait to dig into the others I have to finish a different library book first… then I’m all aboutof the O’Malleys! This book was fantastic It was something different from what I’ve recently been reading, but so so good I need the next one!Kate O’Malley is a hostage negotiator Whether defusing human time bombs or stopping stopping a person from jumping off a building, she is good at what she does and will walk into situations no one else will Dave Richman is a FBI special agent who has spent much of his life protecting people He is starting to care about Kate But now someone is targeting her Someone who is not just out for her blood, but who wants to ruin her first A person has sent her black roses Maybe the same one that blew up an airplane and blamed her Dave is determined to protect her If he can’t, she may die When shocking evidence from the investigation threatens to crush her, can she learn to rely and trust in Dave and the God he believes in so faithfully?I loved this book a lot I connected with Dave and Kate right from the start They were so fun to read about I mean they were hilarious together and the budding romance was so sweet Though I do think the Dave fell in love with Kate a bit too quickly Kate was a really strong character She could hide her emotions very well in almost every situation she was in, but she had a temper that she let out at points Dave was kind and very protective, though he had a touch of cockiness and a lot of fun which was perfect Then the whole O’Malley family, don’t get me started I could laugh at most of the parts with all of them together The protective brothers, the awesome sisters, is was cool Marcus is my favorite of the siblings, I think They were all good This book was layered with puns and jokes from all of them including Dave.The plot was intense The mysteries, the secrets, it all added to such a great thrilling suspense It will keep you on the edge of your seat throughout the book I did feel like the climatic ending could have been drawn out a little bitthan it was, since there was so much anticipation leading up to it But it was still great.I’ll recommend this to teens and up This was a great Christian Fiction book with so much suspense, mystery, and romance If you like any sort of Christian Fiction, try it out! I think you’ll find it very good.You can check out this review on my blog too, at: Thanks! Loved this book! I enjoyed getting to know the O'Malley family immensely, and I love all the brother/sister relationships They're always my favorite ;) The way the author wove God into the story was very well done It wasn't preachy at all, and I really appreciated just how much their faith in Him worked into the character's lives The mystery was very well done, and I'm looking forward to reading the next book in the series! Within the pages of The Negotiator you'll find a nail biting, well developed suspense, a sweet and equally well developed relationship and some fine secondary characters The plot is tense, and at times the romance becomes secondary to the suspense, but still I found it nearly impossible to put down I highly recommend this to fans suspense fans. {Free} É The Negotiator ⚣ FBI agent Dave Richman from Danger in the Shadows is back He's about to meet Kate O'Malley, and his life will never be the same She's a hostage negotiator He protects people He's about to find out that falling in love with a hostage negotiator is one thing, but keeping her safe is another!
