In this article, I’m gonna share you my top favorite mystery books and about the author of that series. My absolute favorite mystery series is the O’Malley series written by the author Dee Henderson. Dee Henderson is a Christan author who has won many awards for the books she has written. She was a daughter of a pastor and grew up in Illinois where she graduated from the University of Illinois. Although I don’t know a whole lot about the life of the author, I do know she has a passion for writing and can capture an audience with her books in the most amazing way.
Her books are so fascinating to me and so easy to get wrapped up in them while reading them. In fact, when I read the series I get so involved in the books that I forget about everything around me. On one occasion I was visiting my sister, who lives in Fayetteville Arkansas. I got so involved reading my book I forgot that I had a glass of milk on the floor by my foot. So when the neighbor came and knocked on the door I jumped, knocking the glass of milk over. Well, you know what spilled milk leads to soured carpet! So that sent me in search for carpet cleaning in Fayetteville. They did such a great job! So great that I was able to go right back into reading my book without the smell of soured milk.
One of the main reasons I love the O’Mally series so much is because they are about Jesus, family, and falling in love. As a Christan mother, I can very well relate to the stories. A lot of the writing relates to everyday living, not only does the author enter act Jesus, family, and love but she also puts heartache, difficulties and loss of a loved one in the series. Something I’m sure we can all relate too. The series is about several children who are orphaned and become so close in the orphanage that when they are of age they adopt themselves and become brothers and sisters. There are other mystery books she has written but I think the O’Mally series is by far her greatest work. I would personally love to see the series made into a movie series. I encourage you if you are a Christian that loves to read mysteries go find these books and read them. Not only are they entertaining but you can also learn some great valuable lessons from these books.
