Tessa's Christian Fiction Review: Jennifer: An O'Malley Love Story by Dee Henderson

Disappointing. Over the years since the O'Malley series came out, I have recommended it warmly to many readers.  I was excited about this addition to the great family Henderson had created. When I first saw the book, my heart sank.  It was so small, I knew it couldn't have much to it.  And I was right. The story doesn't give much new information or background for Jennifer. Tom Peterson, the young surgeon she falls in love with, is a Christian but Jennifer isn't.  Her spiritual life doesn't seem to matter a whole lot to Tom, but the core of the book is about him sharing Jesus with her. It's a sweet story, and, yes, she becomes a Christian, but it's all too straightforward and easy. Henderson gives us the typical formulaic style and leaves out any realistic touches. She is capable of so much better.

If you have read all the others, you probably want to read this one anyway.  If you haven't read the others and don't intend to, skip this. So, unfortunately, Jennifer: An O'Malley Love Story by Dee Henderson is too short, too simple and not complete enough to satisfy. Not recommended.~ Tessa 2.5 out of 5 stars    2013
