The Guardian was the first book I read in Dee Hendersons The OMalley Chronicles, even though its the second one in the series. Ive been hooked ever since. How could I not be when it includes humor, core family values, Christianity, tough emotions and circumstances, and a host of characters that crawled into my heart? Not to mention the suspenseful plots that fuel each story.
This particular novel features Marcus OMalley, the guardian of the clan, who works for the U.S. Marshals. When a federal judge is killed on his watch, Marcus determines to guard the only witness and hunt down the shooter. But what will he do when his heart get tangled up along the journey?
One of my favorite things about The Guardian is how detailed it is. The way the author intricately designs each chapter heightens the suspense along with my curiosity. Perhaps thats why Im on my third read of this incredible series.
Or it could be the closeness the OMalley family exhibits. It reminds me of my childhood dream of having lots of children some day in the future. I wondered if they would grow up close, similarly to the OMalleys. Its encouraging to see that its possible, both in fiction (The Guardian) and in reality (my sister and I have become really close over the years).
I read Dee Henderson's Hero Series and so enjoyed it I had to buy the entire O'Malley series. I am anxiously awaiting Jennifer's story. I have also ordered Full Disclosure which is not part of either series that I know of.
I loved this story of Marcus. Everyone of us struggle with things in our lives and sometimes we think that God doesn't answer our prayers but we must just keep on praying and always remember that the plans that God has for us is plans to prosper and not to harm us. Thank you Dee, I know that God is working through you do give us hope when the world seems dark.
I started reading these books because my mom use to read them and loved them. She would always mention it and kept anticipating for when the next one would come out. I admit at first I was not interested. Well, last year my mom passed away and when I went through her books I found these and I remembered that these were some of her favorites. So I decided to keep them and read them. I'm on the third one now and I love them. I can see why my mom loved them. Good mysteries and a good love story. A kind of love that I pray to have someday. Marcus is such a good character. Loved this book!
