Jennifer: An O’Malley Love Story by Dee Henderson
Bethany House Publishers, May 1, 2013

Eagerly Awaited Novella from Dee Henderson

It’s a summer of change for Jennifer O’Malley. The busy physician has a pediatrics practice in Dallas, and meeting Tom Peterson, and falling in love, is adding a rich layer to her life. She’s sorting out how to introduce him to her family–she’s the youngest of seven–and thinking about marriage.

She’s falling in love with Jesus too, and knows God is good. But that faith is about to be tested in a way she didn’t expect, and the results will soon transform her entire family.

Having read all of the O’Malley Series recently I was wondering about Jennifer’s story and when I saw this novella, I was excited to read it.

Jennifer meets Tom and their romance is unhurried and sweet. I liked watching their impromptu dates and the way they spent time together – unhurried but with purpose – they sought each other out to spend time together, just not officially. As the news that will test Jennifer arrives, it will also test her and Tom and just how strong is the love they’ve developed.

In many ways I didn’t want to read this book as it signifies the end of a series I really enjoyed. However, I was always going to read it at the same time. A lovely book to gift her readers with! Thanks Dee Henderson!

Thank you to NetGalley for a copy of this novel for review.  I was in no way obliged to give a positive review.
