Jennifer: An O'Malley Love Story

Book description:  "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."

My Review:  This book is a novella by Dee Henderson.  I have read all the other O'Malley stories by her and they are all very involved with detailed plots.  With this one being a novella it wasn't nearly as detailed and "page-turning" as what I have come to expect from Ms. Henderson.  Even though I enjoyed the story, I was very disappointed!  I know Ms. Henderson was basically "fitting in" Jennifer's story since the ending has already been told, but I would have liked it better if she had evolved the story more.  Jennifer is a sweet character, and I loved her story.  I just wish it had been longer.  I received a complimentary e-copy of this book from Bethany House Publishers in exchange for an honest review.  All opinions are my own.
