  • Those who loved her O'Malley series, will find this nearly equal in quality. It is intense, draws your attention from the first page, and makes you keep reading. I really enjoyed this!!What I liked:-The first chapter. WOW! It pulls you in right away. I had a hard time putting it down after that.-The sisters. Love them. I can so understand how it feels being far away from a sister and my throat choked up on the reunion.-Marsh and Conner. Before their POV's were introduced, I really liked Luke, bu [...]


  • I must admit this is the first Dee Henderson book I've read so I didn't know what to expect. I bought it because it was said to be a Christian romance thriller. It begins with a bang and I couldn't put the book down for the first quarter or so. Then, it seems to go into slow motion for the next fifty percent or so. Then it kicks in again for the close. I was okay with the resolution of the story, unlike other reviewers. I didn't spot the lack of editing as some have reported, but I was distracte [...]


  • I have read two other series of Dee Henderson's and have enjoyed her immensely because she, like Francine Rivers, came to Christian fiction from secular writing. So her stories always manage to stay further away from the sappy kind of Christian stuff that can be out there. Plus Henderson is super interested in heroes/law enforcement/crime solving and as I am too her books become an even bigger draw for me. Unfortunately something has changed with Henderson or her publisher or someone because thi [...]


  • Dee Henderson has done it once again. This "can't-put-the-book-down" thriller has a strong storyline and well developed characters. The 7 main characters: three closely bonded sisters, their romantic interests, and their cousin are creatively crafted. The story line hooks you from page 1 with numerous twists and turns that keep the reader turning pages.


  • I was really unsure of this book after reading some of the reviews. I had gotten into the O'Malley series and loved the True Heroes series. So I gave it a shot and I'm glad I did. I liked the character development in this book and feel that it is probably the first book of a new series. I think Ms. Henderson was trying to get everyone introduced and page time. I enjoyed the bond that the chief and Amy had together. As others have stated this isn't a preachy book, but I did like how she wove God [...]


  • THE WITNESS was very good - hard to put down at times. I liked the mix of mystery and romance, although the romance part was extremely predictable. The "Christian Fiction" category is a bit misleading - it's not Christian Fiction in the same sense as Karen Kingsbury or Janette Oke. Henderson's characters mention God every once in a while but Christianity is not the basic theme throughout the book.This is the first Dee Henderson book I have read and now I will have to find more.


  • I really liked this book. Although it is listed as a romance, I felt the romance was more low-key. The inspiration aspects were even more low-key, but still definitely there. To me, the more major aspect of the book was the suspense, and that kept me wanting to know what would happen next.


  • I really enjoy the mystery parts but I felt bored when the romantic scenes began. Male characters were too idealistic and although it's a fiction novel, I felt it too surreal. However, I liked the plot and the suspense had a good pace.



  • I honestly was not interested by this book and while there was nothing downright objectionable with it, I still would not recommend it. It was plain boring and I did not much care for the characters.


  • Plot: I really enjoyed the plot. From page one, you are thrown into conflict and it doesn't end until the last chapter. There are so many twists and turns that when something begins to seem predictable, the story goes in another direction.Characters: It was hard to identify with the characters in this book. I understand that some of the characters needed to have their identities more shaded, but I felt that all of them were portrayed in this way. I didn't feel that there was enough personal qual [...]


  • 2.5starsThis book was slow and disappointing for a Dee Henderson book. It actually started off well. Even though I am not one for much romance in my novels, I did not mind it here. It was actually kinda fun. It was not a love at first sight thing (something I detest) but grew over time. Not exactly the most believable situation, but still fun.Now, the mystery. The mystery was quite lacking. It cropped up now and then, but was more of a backdrop to the story. I was supposed to feel that it threat [...]


  • This book was good! Told the story of one sister who witnessed a shooting several years ago and was presumed dead as she was hit, too. Several years later, she is working at a jewelry store and it's robbed and she saw the robber. Turns out, her family has thought she was dead all these years since they hadn't heard from her. She kind of formed a bond of sorts with a police officer and then she disappeared again. He was hoping to see her sometime. Her sisters inherited an obscene amount of money [...]


  • This was the last Dee Henderson book I read. Her earlier books aren't just tremendous but they have some good movement and at least a veneer of characterization. in The Witness the characters were static and had no personality. I actually kept forgetting which girl was which because they were exactly the same. You could pick up the dialogue and drop it into anyone else's mouth and it would fit. The plot itself isn't bad, Ms. Henderson has a knack for coming up with suspenseful and exciting plots [...]


  • The story is a bit long but interesting to keep you turning the pages. The story starts where the deputy police chief meets a woman who is witness to a jewelry store killing. She is able to identify the shooter and the police are able to close the case. Unbeknownst to the deputy police chief the woman is on the run for the past eight years, surviving a shooting where her boyfriend was killed. The story fast forward where the deputy police chief become the police chief and she comes back into his [...]


  • Enjoyable and suspenseful. In regards to the gruesomeness of the details, this book was unlike others of Dee Henderson's and I like that. It was also intersting to have 3 romantic relationships in this book. The story was detailed and had a great twist at the end. I was shocked that a main character was killed off, but it added a new aspect to Henderson's writing. I could see this being a seriesif only Dee Henderson would start writing/publish a book again.


  • I did like this book but it seemed kind of forced. I have read the O'Malley series and I liked it better. She tried to keep the plot going and then suddenly decided the book was long enough and just wrapped it up. But the characters and plot idea were interesting. It wasn't very realistic and it was a good light read. It is slated as Christian fiction but the inserts about faith feel forced. God didn't really figure much into the book.


  • The beginning really pulls you in then the author takes what could have been a cozy mystery or even a thriller mystery and turns it into a 377 page novel. The plot was predictable. The multiple relationships were too much and could have easily been written in a multi-book series. The tragedy unnecessary. Overall, this was my first and last book by this author.


  • A book I checked out of the library, as I had read another by this author and liked it. I enjoyed this as much as the first - sort of a Christian based murder mystery/whodunit kind of book. Lots of good relationship stuff thrown in too, so it was right up my alley as a good, easy read. I'll look for more by this author to read


  • This was a really good book. I still enjoyed the O'Malley series more, but this one had some good suspense and mystery in it too. There is the subject of an affair, but nothing detailed. Also, I am giving it four stars because it seemed to be dragged out a tad bit in the middle of the book ( in my opinion) .


  • Toda la trama que tiene el libro, es increible, pero no me gustó el personaje principal (Amy).A pesar de ello, muchas de las cosas que pasan dentro de este relato es bastante interesante, además te atrapa desde la primera página.Me gustó la acción que hubo, e incluso, el romance en medio de la acción.El mensaje claramente es la confianza en Dios, porque Él nos protegerá del mal.


  • This is the first Dee Henderson book I've read. I read it for my church book club. The book is very plot-driven, little to no character development. It reminded me of a TV crime/detective show. I enjoy watching those kinds of shows, but not necessarily reading them. I rated it with three stars because it was readable with a good story. It was a bit too simplistic for my taste, however.


  • this book is very well written, i like when they changed from one charator to the next with out it getting boring. i cuaght my attention right away when i was reading it, the first sentence was by far the best.


  • Not hard to see why Dee Henderson is one of my favorite authors. Her stories are amazing and so easy to get caught up in. Don't plan on putting it down until you read the last page.




  • Suspenseful plot with endearing, moral characters. I enjoy this author and look forward to reading more of her work.



  • This book was awesome. I caught me right away! The courtship was great. There was sadness and heartache, but much joy. The story was great.
