    1. Three romantic suspense authors join together to delight readers with a suspense novella collection.Missing by Dee Henderson - John Graham is the police chief in Cheyenne, Wyoming. When he receives word that his elderly mother is missing, he returns to Chicago.

I liked the dynamics between Sharo [...]

    2. Missing by Dee Henderson - 3 StarsThis one started off quite well and really pulled me into the story! And, while it definitely is better than the last couple of novels I've read by this author and the basic storyline was interesting it's still only a 3-star read for me. I don't know which of us changed, but I find that I simply don't enjoy this author's writing style as much as I used to. This novella is still a good read, though! :)Shadowed by Dani Pettrey - 4 StarsWell! This one certainly dro [...]

    3. Excellent! It's hard to go wrong with a book featuring three of my favorite suspense writers, and I can also recommend it to those interested in giving these authors a try. All three stories are a solid four, and all three hard to stop reading before the end. Here are links to my individual reviews:/review/show/review/show/review/show

    4. This was a great romantic suspense collection! I have really enjoyed Dani Pettrey’s and Lynette Eason’s suspense books in the past, and this novella collection introduced me to the writing of Dee Henderson. It is one of the reasons I enjoy novella collections. There have been many times that I have found another author I like when their work is paired with those I already know.In Missing by Dee Henderson, I really enjoyed the way the author walked me through the process of trying to find Joh [...]

    5. Three of my favourite romantic suspense authors all in one book?? Sign me up!!! Sins of the Past is a collection of three romantic suspense novellas. All three stories are based on something that has happened in the past impacting current events and they bring together plenty of action, suspense and romance. Missing - Dee HendersonMissing is a wonderfully insightful and exciting look at working a missing persons case, one that is very personal. Police chief John Graham's mother has been reported [...]

    6. by Andrea Renee CoxWhat's better than one suspense novel?Three!Two of the stories in Sins of the Past drew me in and kept me guessing until the very end. The authors expertly used hooks, the element of surprise, and pacing to their advantage and delivered entertaining tales of redemption and mystery.I especially enjoyed the Cold War setting of Dani Pettrey's Shadowed. I think this might be the first book since The Bourne Identity that I've read that took place in that era, and I was pleased with [...]

    7. Sins of the Past: is a collection of three novellas by Dee Henderson, Dani Pettrey and Lynnette Eason Can you ask for a better collection of authors for romantic suspense???

    8. "Sins of the Past" is a great collection of novellas that can be read all at once or in brief bites, one novella at a time. Each is a quick, well-written read that may be just what you are looking for if you are craving some romance, suspense, and some entertaining plot twists. Probably my favourite of the three is "Missing" by Dee Henderson, as I particularly enjoyed the interaction and dialogue between the characters John and Sharon and the way the plot unfolds. However, the other two addition [...]

    9. Sins of the Past was a good novella collection. My individual ratings for the novellas are 3 stars for Dee Henderson's, 5 stars for Dani Pettrey's, and 4 stars for Lynette Eason's. While I enjoyed them all, I thought Dee Henderson's was a bit rushed to me and that made it less enjoyable than the others (not totally bad, though).I absolutely loved Dani Pettrey's story! If you have read her Alaskan Courage series, this novella was about their parents and how they met. It was very fun and suspensef [...]

    10. sometimes when I read a collection of novellas I just get annoyed with how short they are and how lame the theme is. that was certainly not the case this time! each novella was uniquely excellent and all three really worked the "sins of the past" theme in perfectly. I love all three of these authors and enjoyed another glimpse into their writing styles. Dee Henderson is my all time favorite but in this collection Dani Pettrey's was my favorite because I got to meet the parents behind the Alaska [...]

    11. When I first heard that this novella collection was going to be happening only one thought went through my mind, my three all time favorite romantic suspense authors together in one book? Yes, please! Needless to say Sins of the Past was my most anticipated read of 2016!Missing by Dee Henderson-4.5 Stars!-This story got the collection off to a great start! As a huge fan of Dee's O'Malley family series, I am happy to say that I feel like this one was a lot closer to her earlier books than her mor [...]

    12. Officially my first poolside read of 2016, Sins of the Past was a wonderful way to kick off my Summer Reading.This is only the second novella I've ever read. The novella concept is growing on me for a variety of reasons:1. The lure of familiar authors introduces me to an unfamiliar ones.2. Single serving stories are great for short intense bursts of reading.3. With so much concentrated action, I wasn't tempted to set my book aside when my reading was interrupted by a "Hey Mom, watch this!"Unlike [...]

    13. Three suspense novellas in one book.Missing by Dee Henderson is the first novella in this book. John Graham, a Wyoming sheriff has come back home to Chicago because his mother Martha has come up missing. Her car is in its spot and her purse with all the contents is next to the front door. Martha lives in a retirement home. Is Martha the victim of foul play? Is so what could be the motive? Could it be someone John Graham arrested in the past has a grudge against John and wants revenge. Also I was [...]

    14. In Ms. Eason's novella, Blackout, ​the reader is introduced to Macey. Macey was an eye witness to a murder. Problem is, she has no complete memory of it. I LOVED the premise and how Ms. Eason pulled me into the story. Then again, I'm not surprised because her stories always manages to hook me from the beginning. This novella was no different.*Full review at: tonishiloh.weebly/blog/rev

    15. 3.5 stars. This is a romantic suspense novella collection by three popular Christian inspirational authors - Dee Henderson, Dani Pettrey and Lynette Eason.Missing by Dee Henderson - Police chief John Graham travels from Wyoming back to his hometown of Chicago after his mother mysteriously disappears from a retirement village. He works alongside Lieutenant Sharon Noble to solve the case, but they could be running out of time. This story started out well, but I felt it got a bit bogged down in det [...]

    16. Overall review: I think that it must be difficult to write good romantic suspense in novellas because of the short amount of time that you have to do it. I thought that these authors did a good job combining both the romance and suspense. I received this book in a giveaway and was not required to give a positive review. Overall 4 1/2 stars - full review at my website.

    17. Missing - Dee Henderson - 3 stars This story started off with potential to be a great suspense read, but somewhere started to fall flat and being a bit slower paced to what I like in suspense books. I also guessed who the bad guy was so that revelation came as no surprise.However, it was still a good suspense read that kept the mystery going right till the end. Her O'Malley series is still my favourite.Shadowed - Dani Pettrey - 4 stars This one was fast-paced suspense - exactly how I like my sus [...]

    18. What better way to be introduced to three great romance/suspense writers. Dee Henderson, Dani Pettrey, and Lynette Eason are leaders in the field of Christian/romance/suspense.First, Dee Henderson with MISSING-Though I wouldn’t say this is Henderson’s best work; it was still enjoyable to read. Wyoming police chief, John Graham, is called to Chicago because his elderly mother had disappeared from her retirement home. Teamed with Lt. Sharon Noble, they try to piece together his mother’s last [...]

    19. I’m not usually a fan of novellas, in a collection or otherwise, but when I saw this one with three of my favorite suspense authors, I couldn’t resist giving it a go and I definitely enjoyed it! Bethany House is building a reputation for creating great novella collections that maybe allow readers to be introduced to new-to-them authors, or maybe just build on characters from said authors previous works. I’m generally fairly leery of novellas, even from my favorite authors, because I love l [...]

    20. Missing by Dee HendersonJohn is a Chief of Police heading back to his hometown of Chicago because his mother has disappeared. Heading up the investigation is the head of missing persons Sharon Noble. Together they try and find out who took John’s mother and why. Could it be someone from John’s past? Or was it a random crime of opportunity? As the hours march by the chances of his mother being found alive grow slimmer. I really liked this short story! There was mystery, a bit of suspense and [...]

    21. As is often the case with novella collections, the contents are a mixed bag. Some novellas I loved, and others were just so-so.Missing by Dee Henderson: I started reading Henderson's romantic suspense in college, and I absolutely devoured her O'Malley series. This is the first of her writing that I've read in probably close to ten years, and I have to say, I didn't really enjoy it. The story is fine—John returns to Chicago when his mother goes missing, and he begins working with Chicago cop Sh [...]

    22. My thoughts:First up is Missing by Dee HendersonThis is the first novella in the collection and while I know I was reading a rough advanced reader’s copy, I have to admit that I was rather disappointed in this story.The story started right in the middle of the action, which is great, and the plot had a lot of promise. As soon as they started talking about suspects, I knew who had done it, so spending the rest of the novella shaking my head at two seasoned cops who couldn’t figure it out made [...]

    23. Henderson's MissingIt was quick read and the romance was nice.Pettrey's Shadowed Out of the three this was my favorite! I liked the romance. The suspense was wonderful! Although I guessed who it was about halfway! My bad! Eason's BlackoutI couldn't guess this one! It was absolutely amazing! Definitely a nail-biter!

    24. I am not a fan of books like this where a few different authors each write a novellaever, Pettrey and Eason are among my favorite authors, and Henderson has written some great books in the past so I bit and requested it to review. Since I am not sure how to review this book, I will do a short review for each story:Missing by Dee Henderson: Of the three stories in the book, this one would rate the lowest. I liked the main characters, but the plot and answer to the mystery were a tad bit disappoin [...]

    25. I always enjoy novella collections because the combination gives the book the overall length I prefer and because it also gives me an opportunity to try an author I'm less familiar with. These three enjoyable stories are tied together only by the theme of past situations impacting the characters. Missing by Dee Henderson is a unique story about a cop's elderly mother who disappears from her assisted living facility. The characters were engaging and I particularly enjoyed the setting since I work [...]

    26. I was so excited to get my hands on this book. Three of my favorite romantic suspense authors all under one cover. What could possibly be better?The funny thing is that I don't usually gravitate to novellas. I like my stories long and detailed. But this collection may have changed my mind. Since the stories had to be short the action began right from the beginning. The pace was fast and the drama unfolded quickly. Because of these details I actually thought the stories were even more suspenseful [...]

    27. Missing by Dee Henderson4.5 StarsCheyenne police chief John Graham's mom has gone missing. Frantic, he heads to Chicago to assist the search and meets the woman heading up the investigation, Lieutenant Sharon Noble. With few clues to go on, they race against the clock to find her before it's too late.Missing is the first Dee Henderson story I've read (I know, shocking right?). I have a few of her books on my to-read list that I'm even more excited to read now after enjoying this novella so much. [...]

    28. When three amazing suspense authors team up, you know you’re in for an adventure! I’m not sure I could pick a favorite novella in the book. They were all great!‘Missing’ by Dee HendersonHeavier on the suspense, and lighter on the romance, Missing sets the clock ticking from the first page. You’ll keep digging to piece together the clues to solve the mystery before the police do.‘Shadowed’ by Dani PettreySuspense and romance intertwine in Shadowed, leaving you looking over your shou [...]

    29. Take three popular, successful inspirational romantic suspense authors and put them together in an anthology and you get Sins of the Past. It’s a non-stop, engaging, and of course suspense-filled collection of novellas from Dee Henderson, Dani Pettrey, and Lynette Eason.Interestingly, each novella is completely different. The only theme running through each of these stories is the crime. But the collection works. It’s just an appetizer for those who are waiting on something new from any of t [...]
