But the small town of Justice, Illinois, is not as safe as she thinks.

    " Enjoyable reading, good writing. Would've liked a little more wrap-up in the ending. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ryan Chang | 2/13/2014

    " It was a good read although I didn't like the religious aspect, but that's just me. And I absolutely hated not finding out who the cook was, it's driving me nuts! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Omi | 2/6/2014

    " Awesome. A bit of romance, a lot of mystery, a bit of gross reality, a bit of humor...these books are a good blend. I have another favorite author now! :D "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Miss Clark | 2/3/2014

    " I really want to know if she is ever going to write another story about these characters. I would really like to read it! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Allie Mudge | 1/30/2014

    " Good so far, interesting. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Caroline | 1/25/2014

    " I do enjoy Dee Henderson's books but this one left me wanting... a lot more! The main plot was left unresolved and I could not really appreciate the main character, Rae. She left me hoping some new girl would move into town for Nathan to become interested in. Bruce just seemed rather wistful that he had let Rae go eleven years ago, but couldn't commit to reopening their relationship. She seemed to play both men for attention/affection. Not a great heroine. I was bothered by the dangling ending, like there should be a few more chapters, or a sequel, which I haven't found. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Ellen | 1/24/2014

    " Ok, so normally I am a HUGE fan of Dee Henderson, but this book was the most confusing introduction to a new series that I have ever read. I was THREE HOURS into the audiobook before I knew whether or not the Luke Granger or Sam Chapell referred to in The Witness were the same characters here. Actually, I'm still not sure about those since they mention another town rather than Silverton. Is Gage the same reporter from the O'Malley series? Who knows? Plus, the main character's name is Rae. Now, I KNOW that's not the same as Rachel O'Malley, but since Rae was her nickname and she knew Gage well, it was still confusing to me. If I hadn't read those other books first, I would have found the story interesting for the most part. I did feel that the ending left something to be desired too. I am more interested in a followup to The Witness than I am of this one. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Faith Baker | 1/24/2014

    " I enjoyed the story and will read more of this author, but was very frustrated with the ending. She didn't even come close to finishing the story! Lots of loose ends were left open! It's like she just got tired of writing. It would be ok, maybe, if there was a sequel but I think this is a stand alone book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Celina Leeper | 1/19/2014

    " I liked how this wasn't completely solved... not much of real life is all handed to us nice & neat with all of our questions answered. Enough answers to be ok with the ending. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Judy | 1/15/2014

    " great book but it leaves you hanging and she never wrote the next book in the series as far as I can tell "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lauren | 12/28/2013

    " It was great until the end!. . . and then it just ended. Frustrating. I don't feel this book had good closure or resolve. It definitely left it open for a sequeal. So where's the sequel??? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nadine | 12/25/2013

    " Likeable main characters and good plot. Good language and no sex! Would have appreciated a more definitive ending, but it was OK "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Hannah | 12/22/2013

    " Before I Wake is a book that kept me on the edge of my seat from the minute I picked it up. I didn't want to put it down till I was finished. I loved the story and would definitely recommend it to my friends. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tammy | 12/14/2013

    " I loved the storyline and the characters, but It left me wanting a conclusion. I assume there is another book that will be written...I am waiting "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sarah | 12/11/2013

    " Meh. I've loved previous books by this author, but this was disappointing. There was a bunch of character building, but the plot has no conclusion. We don't learn who the villain is or where the relationships go. Overall, it left much to be desired. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sbugsy | 12/10/2013

    " It was good but maybe because I have been reading Dee Henderson's books, it wasn't as good as the other series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Megan | 12/1/2013

    " As much as I love Dee Henderson, I must say this was not my favorite book of hers. It seems like the ending leaves you hanging. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Valerie | 6/14/2013

    " I was anticipating a great book, but was disappointed. This one doesn't compare to the O'Malley series of any of Dee Henderson's other books that I've read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dianne | 12/14/2012

    " Suspensful, and very interesting. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cambryn | 10/21/2012

    " An interesting read...but there better be a sequel! It leaves lots of unanswered questions. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kimberly | 8/13/2012

    " Loved this one and anxiously awaiting the next book!!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mariah | 4/9/2012

    " This book rocked! Total page turner. I love mystery novels. Dee Henderson is a Christian wirer, so there is no need to worry about needless, questionable content. Jordyn - you HAVE to read this one!!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dara | 4/7/2012

    " I loved all the characters and story, but the ending left things very unresolved, and there hasn't been a sequel yet!! So it kind of messes it up for me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kim Holdiman | 1/5/2012

    " I enjoy Dee Henderson's writing...she mixes good crime/mystery stories with love and family. Always has a little suspense and leaves me smiling from a dash of romance. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heather | 12/25/2011

    " The book lost a star because it desperately needs a sequel! "

    " Up to this point, I've only read books from her O'Malley series, which I really like. This was a fast paced, captivaating mystery - good for a rainy day when all you rally want to do is curl up and read a good book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jacie Bentley | 10/10/2011

    " Great plot. Not enough romance for a romance lover...maybe because a sequel's planned? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Janice | 5/5/2011

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anne | 8/1/2010

    " This book was very good. However, it ended rather abruptly so I presume because it is shown to be #1 in a series that there will be another to answer unanswered questions. Recommended. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tara | 7/6/2010

    " The ending leaves you wanting more, so I hope the sequel is fast coming. Overall good read. "
