Reviews - What do customers think about Guardian (O'Malley V2)?
This is an excellent crime drama. Mar 12, 2007
Shari Hanford has just witnessed the murder of one of her oldest family friends. Her brother and father have both been shot in the process. Marcus O'Malley must protect Shari as the only eyewitness to the crime. He is torn between his duty to his job (and growing feelings toward Shari) and being there for his youngest sister during her cancer treatment. Since Marcus' mother died of cancer, he is also struggling with the issue of unanswered prayer. Can he protect two of the women he loves with his skills and rediscovery of his faith?
I am completely drawn to how devoted this family is to each other. Their resources for supporting each other seem limitless and unrealistic, and I would've liked the author to have dealt with more realistic boundaries (not everyone can jump on a plane whenever something bad happens to someone they love). Still the story was enjoyable.
The other O'Malley novels are: The Negotiator, The Guardian, The Truth Seeker, The Protector, The Healer, The Rescuer. Each is a wonderful read!
NOT MY CUP OF TEA Feb 17, 2007
I am aware that this novel falls into the Christian literature classification, however the spiritual conflict as well as the romantic aspect of the story falls short and the family dynamic is improbable. As for the "she saw the killer and now she's at risk, so let's send in Mr. Wonderful to protect her", the story has been done to death.
This could, however, be a perfect vehicle for the WE (women's entertainment) cable network to purchase and produce. (All of their shows seem to be of this caliber). The story is sugary, Marcus O'Malley comes across as a combination of Clint Eastwood and Robert Young, and the women in the story are generally portrayed as helpless, in need of a man's love and protection in order to survive. All in all, there isn't a really believable character in the book. (1 1/2 stars)
Love this series!! Nov 15, 2006
The books in this series are awsome. Dee Henderson has become one of my favorites. She has a way of making the reader a part of the story and looking forward to the next! Suspense, romance, friendship, it's all there and more.
WONDERFUL SERIES Jan 10, 2006
The Omalley series is definetly my favorites set of books, and i've reread the entire series (from prequel to book 6)
Marcus' story was different than any type of book i'd read, the excitement of his job (a U.S Marshall) the chase for answers, and his job of protecting a witness would have made the book in itself a great read. However adding the romance to the mix made it a must own. It's somewhat disappointing that further in the series Marcus and Shari don't really continue their story much, but you won't be disappointed with this book.
