    1. This is my kind of Christian Fiction. I love that this book has flawed characters who can own their mistakes and occasionally struggle with their faith in a very realistic way. The mystery/suspense elements are pretty good too. It was every bit as good on a second read through as it was the first.


    2. My mom told me years ago that her friend's daughter wrote books and gave me one to read. Her friend's daughter was Dee Henderson. Over the years, I've read most of Dee's books and have decided to start rereading them. Her novels aren't the squeaky clean, perfect charactered, sugary, romance novels some Christian women authors write that I just can't stomach. They are in depth novels you want read almost in one setting, and yes, even reread. I like the fact that the romance thread is there but is [...]


    3. I loved the O'Malley series by Dee Henderson so very much, but I never read the prequel about Sara (Dave's sister) and Adam. I'm so glad I chose this one for one of my challenges this month. Sometimes it's nice to read a story where I don't have to substitute words in my head for every bad word I read, and when people say God, they are actually talking to GOD. I love Dee Henderson's books because she takes Christian principles and places them so perfectly within really great stories about regula [...]


    4. Review of the audio bookDee Henderson has been one of my daughter's favorite authors for a very long time, but I had never had any interest in reading her stories. A few days ago I noticed I had this book on my audible shelves and decided to give it a listen.I'm glad I did! Ms. Henderson is a popular Christian Romantic Suspense author whose stories are part thriller, part mystery, part romance, and always inspirational. She takes the readers deep inside the minds of the "victim" and/or the lead [...]


    5. This book was painful to get through. The characters were completely unbelievable (a totally chaste former NFL superstar? a woman with a stalker who gets the highest of FBI security her whole life, including her brother who is the head of her detail? as if the FBI would do that.), and so are their interactions with each other, which were a snooze fest. The book is one long whine by the main character about how restricted her life is, and it's full of repeated conversations between her and her lo [...]


    6. Well, this book was fairly painful to read. I don't know what it is about "Christian" books that make them synonymous with "poor writing," but this book does nothing to break the stereotype. Here are some examples p 73 "The reception area was a profusion of flowers and fauna." Did the author not know that fauna refer to wildlife of which there was none in this particular office area? Or what about the tedious types of sentences like this one on page 170 "The oven timer went off. Sara helped set [...]


    7. by Andrea Renee CoxFear. It’s a driving force that freezes us in our tracks. I’ve experienced it in several different ways in my life, and I’m guessing you have too. But what would it be like to live in constant fear for your life?Danger in the Shadows tells the story of a woman who was held captive for years by the fear that her sister’s killer would come back for her. Sara longs for freedom, but her past demands tight security surround her at all times. When she finds herself stuck in [...]


    8. It has been to long since I read a Deen Henderson book. I picked this one up last night, telling myself I would only read the first couple of chapters I finished the book and 12:30 a.m. if you were wondering.


    9. This was a recommendation from a good friend. The protagonist is basically in constant hiding as in a sort of witness protection because she and her twin were abducted as children and held for ransom. Her sister died. The man who took them has hunted her since childhood, leaving notes and presents on holidays and birthdays. Her brother works for the FBI or something, so they have a ton of secret service men at their disposal all the time. A little into the book you learn that she is an ambassado [...]


    10. It was simply boring and ridiculous. I think the protagonist is supposed to be Sara, but Dave and Adam make all the decisions about her life, and we get very little insight from Sara herself. It seems like the novel inadvertently perpetuated stereotypes about men and women relationships, and about men and women in general, stereotypes that are not close to reality or empowering. Sara's relationship with God seemed completely forced - it wasn't until 4/5 of the way through the book that it even g [...]


    11. I really liked this book, but I have one SERIOUS qualm with it. The author must have done a lot of research about childhood trauma and PTSD, because Sara's response to her situation seems relatively realistic. BUT! Near the beginning of the book, Adam--a man she just met a day or two ago--tries to comfort her with a hug, she recoils, and he HOLDS ON. When she says, "I don't want this," he says, "Tough. You need this," and holds her until she relaxes. THIS IS NOT OKAY. Maybe it's the hyper-awaren [...]


    12. Sara lived in a world with constant security around her. She was being protected from the kinapper who took her and her twin sister Kim 25 years ago. This man has been in contact with her and invades her privacy causing her to relocate frequently. One day, she meets Adam Black, a handsome retired football player, in an elevator where they get stuck together and alone. Their lives crossed paths for a reason and things will never be the same. Sara is selective at revealing the secrets of her past [...]


    13. How has this author written so many books and I have never heard of her???? A friend lent me this book (as well as the whole O'Malley series) and I could NOT put it down. I read the whole book in a day. My friend characterized it as a Thriller/Romance book. I would call it Thriller for sure, but it was so much more---mystery and crime and living a life of faith applied. As for romance, it's true romance without the steamy scenes (which I appreciated!) So, here's the ridiculously brief synopsisA [...]


    14. Are you afraid of the dark?Sara is terrified!The suspense is high from the opening pages of Dangers in the Shadow by Dee Henderson. Romance is budding…and the mystery of her stalker hangs over her head.Imagine…security, changing your routines every time you walk out the door,constantly looking over your shoulder, wondering if today would be the day…Dee Henderson’s writing makes me able to see and feel Sara’s terror. I love that she also writes lovely picture books for children and is a [...]


    15. My first experience with Henderson was with one of her more recent novels (from 2012) and then a couple other recent ones. I have to admit, I haven't been a fan. But. So many people have mentioned the O'Malley series and that they are her best. A friend from book club let me borrow her copies, so I thought I would give it a try, but y'all, I'm thinking Dee's books are just not be for me. This one had too many unbelievable pieces to make it believable, many things that happened were a bit much an [...]


    16. I’ve been aware of the O’Malley series for years—I even own the books, but I have never felt compelled to read them. So, I decided to read the prequel. It’s good, intense, and believable. I enjoyed the characters and the plot. However, I have yet to figure out how this book relates to the seven O’Malleys. I guess I’ll have to read more to find out


    17. SUMMARY: Sara is terrified. She's doing the one thing she cannot afford to do: fall in love with former pro-football player Adam Black, a man everyone knows. Sara's been hidden away in the witness protection program, her safety dependent on staying invisible—and loving Adam could get her killed!Introducing the O'Malleys, an inspirational group of seven, all abandoned or orphaned as teens, who have made the choice to become a loyal and committed family. They have chosen their own surname, O'Mal [...]


    18. 2.75-3 Stars. I didn't love it, I didn't hate it. I'm not a religious person persay. I believe in something higher, but at this point in my life I am not sure what it is. I question why we are here. What is the point of the human race. What happens when you die. Questions like that, but I have a hard time with one person being the "be all, end all". Now that that is out of the way, Sara and Adam were likable enough. I would have liked to know a bit more about what Sara endured during her captivi [...]


    19. Dee Henderson is a favourite author in our house & we really enjoy her O'Malley Series, of which this is the prequel.25 years ago Sara Richman was kidnapped along with her twin sister Kim & held for ransom. 9 days later they were found, Sara alive, Kim dead. One of the kidnappers was found & jailed. The other has been stalking Sara ever since. Her older brother Dave has trained as a FBI Special Agent & is lead on her protection detail. A life of anonymity is one Sara has to lead [...]


    20. I am a big fan of Dee Henderson's gift for writing suspense and telling a story that touches the heart and let's you know there is no situatioin or person who is hopeless. Danger in the Shadows is a prequel to The phenomenal The O'Malley family series. Each member of this "family" is there first and foremost b/c they were abandoned or orphaned as a teen. The O'Malley family is a "family" by choice and commitment to one another. They are close, unique and very loyal. The O'Malley series is the st [...]


    21. Every once in a while, I read a romance. I've been hesitant to read anything but historical fiction—-but I won't hesitate any longer with Dee Henderson's modern day suspenseful romances, like Danger in the Shadows.Sara, the main character, has a dark past involving a stalker. Her protective FBI brother is all hero, and the developing love interest keeps the fast-paced plot multidimensional. Great character depth!The chapters flew by for me, and the realistic conflict shown through the characte [...]


    22. The best part about Danger in the Shadows is the religious premise that God is in control and that we must learn to trust Him to have peace in our lives. The story itself is okay, but it's so far from reality that it feels more like a romance than a thriller in some ways.The overriding message in this story is that love and trust are critical in any relationship, and most importantly in our individual relationships with God. Overcoming the past and learning to trust after we've been hurt is what [...]


    23. The book is considered the Prequel to the O'Malley series.Sara and her twin sister were kidnapped when they were young. After 9 stressful days, Sara was rescued but her twin Kim died. There were two kidnappers, one was caught but one has been on the loose for years. Sara now in her 30s is being protected by her brother Dave an FBI agent. She is an author - she writes and illustrates children's books and is also an author or thrillers.A chance meeting in an elevator during a power outage with Ada [...]


    24. 4.5 starsWhen I picked this up in March, I didn't know anything about the author or the series, except that my CFD group here on was doing a group read of this book. I grabbed it on impulse and got around to it in a couple of weeks. I've only just begun reading a lot of Christian romantic suspense this year, and this one is excellent. I have been working my way through this series ever since and really enjoying the characters.One of my favorite things was Sara's life as a writer, and how she wa [...]


    25. I read this book many years ago, and I'm pleased to say that re-reading it was just as fun as reading it the first time. This book had me turning pages late into the night (which hasn't happened in quite a while!).




    26. I enjoyed this book overall and I especially liked the FBI involvement. While some parts were unrealistic, i.e. Dave being the head of Sara's security detail, I felt that they benefited the storyline and made nice additions. My one issue was Adam. It didn't make sense to me that Sara would fall in love with him. Their whole relationship just didn't seem natural and felt rushed. He was annoyingly protective at times, even when she had her own FBI security detail! I guess that's just me and my dis [...]



    27. Danger in the Shadows is the prequel to Dee Henderson's well-known O'Malley Series about seven foster children who grow up and create their own adopted family. Dee Henderson writes wonderful Christian suspense. The protagonist, Sara Walsh, lives in constant hiding from her childhood kidnapper. The man who kidnapped her never completed his mission. She is his only loose end. Sara lives in constant fear of the little presents and letters left by her childhood kidnapper. Afraid of the dark and fear [...]
