Jennifer: An O'Malley Love Story... a book review

Jennifer: An O'Malley Love Story
Bethany House Publishing Group
ISBN: 978-0-7642-1112-6
Available: May 2013
Hardcover, $12.99

As one book in the O'Malley Family Series, we meet Dr. Jennifer O'Malley.  She spends her days and nights doctoring children with terminal illnesses.  As she gives her all to her young patients, she is slowly being wooed by Dr. Tom Peterson.  As a surgeon, he knows the stresses of the job.  Yet, he is more concerned about her spiritual well-being than her physical one, at least in the beginning. 

I enjoyed the book and did not feel lost "jumping in" with this particular book.  This is a sweet love story, not just between Jennifer and Tom, but also between Jennifer and Jesus.  Will her newly found faith be shaken off its foundation just as she is resting in the love and peace of the God who loves her?

My rating: B
3.5 stars out of 5
The love story was nice, but I would have liked to see Dee Henderson dive deeper into the revelation concerning Jennifer at the end of the book.  I was not hooked enough to search out the next book to learn the conclusion of her situation.  If  you are, seek out The Negotiator, Book One, to read more about Jennifer and her decisions.

I received a complimentary copy of Jennifer: An O'Malley Love Story for my honest review from Bethany House Publishing Group.
