My Rating & Thoughts:    

This is book one of the O’Malley series and features Kate, who is the oldest girl in the family. There are seven siblings that make up the O’Malley’s. They are a group of friends who met approx.. 20 years ago at an orphanage and decided to form their own family with them all changing their last name to O’Malley. They all look out for one another. Kate is in her early 30s and is a negotiator for the police. She arrives on a scene to negotiate a bank hostage situation and meets FBI agent, Dave Richmond. He just happened to just be in the bank at the time and is one of the hostages. Dave is impressed with the way she handled the situation and wants to get to know her more, he is intrigued by her. Due to the outcome of the hostage situation, Kate ends up in the hospital and they discover she has a stalker after her. Meanwhile a large tragedy happens and Dave is assigned to the case with Kate being a witness and possible target. Meanwhile Jennifer arrives in town to tell her family what is going on with her. Jennifer’s main priority is to get her siblings to believe in God, Kate is the first one that she really talks to about this. We follow Kate’s journey of making a decision of whether or not to turn to God. There were quite a few cases going on making me wonder if they were separate cases or could they possibility be connected to one another. I was much more invested in the characters than the cases themselves, would Kate turn to God or would she continue to try to do handle things on her own. This book provides an accurate insight into the characters lives and shows that they are trying to balance both personal situations as well as work responsibilities and how this can be wear on a person.
