Danger in the Shadows is great!

Danger in the Shadows by Dee Henderson is uplifting, a page turner and a good read. Sara is brave, but cautious and more concerned about those she loves than herself. Adam is patient and understanding of her situation, and determined to change her mind about her future. This is a good book for teens and adults who like suspense, clean romance and gospel truths all in one. I recommend all of the books by Dee Henderson.

Love the adventure

Don't usually read romance but Dee Henderson write beautifully. You feel as if you are the one living the story.

Suspense and romance finally get equal air time!

I'm officially a Dee Henderson fan, after just one book! Unlike some other reviewers, I found this to be a very quick read. It could have been shorter if some of the descriptive and introspective paragraphs were spliced out, but I personally wouldn't want them to be. Ms. Henderson uses description to enhance, rather than stifle, her story; and it's refreshing to read a novel this thick in which neither suspense nor romance is slighted by the other. She has a pleasing writing style (despite a slight tendency toward comma splices) that makes reading her stories feel like vacation, not work. In addition, both Adam and Sara are likable, decently developed characters that carry their story well. Sara's fear and flawed relationship with God actually strengthens her as a sympathetic heroine. I grew to love and understand Sara, and the two "parts" of her personality (Sara Walsh and H.Q. Victor) is a wonderfully haunting way to explain the impact the kidnapping had on her. And for those who complain that there is too much romance and not enough time developing the Bad Guy, please remember this is the Palisades Romance Series, not the Dangerous Shadows Series. Go into these books *expecting* romance, and when one of them (like this one) delivers so much more, you'll find yourself pleasantly surprised.


If it is suspense and romance you are looking for in a story, you have it here. As the story opens you can feel Sarah's tension and when she is in the lift, well.... your reading might just gather speed! There are several instances in the book where you will certainly not fall asleep whilst reading. The man who is after Sarah, you know is lurking, but just who is he? Once you find out more about this person you find yourself accusing just about everyone. An excellent read. I recommend Dee Henderson to you; but a word of warning'll be hooked!!

A perfect suspense romance--beautifully written

DANGER IN THE SHADOWS is a wonderful book. Dee Henderson has shown a strength in plotting and writing that had me glued to my seat for hours to finish the book. Sara walsh was abducted when she was a young child, and after 9 days of captivity in a dark basement she is found. The man who kidnapped her never is, but he is still terrorizing her. She is a protected woman, living with FBI protection and moving constantly to keep a step ahead of the insane man who wants to control her. Her life is a terror, always watching over her shoulder, always being watched and never getting close to anyone. Adam Black is a sports hero, high profile, now retired. He meets Sara and wants her, unaware of her need for privacy and security. As much as she pushes him away, he is drawn to her and her situation, but struggles to understand what she went through and how it's affecting her as an adult. Adam and Sara are meant to be together but the roadblocks in the way of a relationship working are enormous. There is a man walking free who has put Sara through the most unimaginable nightmare and it's time she took her life back. They both have their faith, and knowing that God was watching over them gave them the strength to face the terror.I loved this book. The terror was so subtly drawn, so carefully laid out that it pulled me in slowly and before I knew it I was jumping at shadows and suspicious of every noise. The romance between Adam and Sara had to be so strongly written to keep afloat with the suspense but Dee has done it very well. I'm off to find Dee Henderson's other books now. Can't get too much of a good thing. ~sue ~~~~~~~~ Sue Waldeck Road to Romance

Suspense at its finest

Sara Walsh is living her present with an all too real threat from the past. As the daughter of an ambassador, she was at risk. The memory of the abduction of her and her twin sister lives on in her mind and the the threat of the kidnapper who still stalks her has made her a prisoner in her own life.When a twist of fate lands her in an elevator with Adam Black, ex footbal star, things change. Adam is instantly aware of the connection they share and with the help of their faith, he is detemrined to have a life with Sara.The couple are faced with more than their share of obstacles, but the they share two common bonds; love and their faith in God.Though this is an inspirational book, it will appeal to all readers who enjoy a true romantic suspense. The characters are so vivid you should be able to reach out and touch them.Dee Henderson has a writing style that carried her story so smoothly you won't know it isn't happening to you. I am awed by her ability to write a story so emotionally charged and yet gently inspiring. I recommend Dee Henderson as a a writer everyone will enjoy for as long as always. Danger in the Shadows is a remarkable book. Truly remarkable.

Wonderful novel!

The suspense kept me so interested that I read this book in one setting. The characters were very real, and the romance was touching. The message of God is not heavy handed, so I think people who do not usually enjoy religious fiction could read and enjoy this novel. It is a great novel for anyone who enjoys romantic suspense. This book made me a Dee Henderson fan!
