Firewall

GIVEAWAY

MILLS, DIANN
FIREWALL

After a whirlwind romance, Taryn Young is preparing to board a plane at Houston International Airport, bound for a dream honeymoon, when a bomb decimates the terminal. Injured but still alive, she awakens to discover her husband is missing and they’re both considered prime suspects in the attack. Further, the FBI is convinced her husband isn’t who he appears to be.

Agent Grayson Hall’s number-one priority is to catch those responsible for the day’s act of terror. All evidence is pointing to Taryn and her new husband. But his instinct tells him her pleas of innocence are genuine. Is her naiveté just for show, or could she truly be another victim of a master scheme, possibly linked to the software she recently developed for her company?

With both their lives and reputations on the line, and the media outcry for justice increasing with each passing minute, Taryn and Grayson have no choice but to trust one another . . . and pray they can uncover the truth before they become two more casualties.

My Review:

An action-packed thriller of a read! The intense plot starts out with a bang and doesn't let up until the very last page. Mills measures her words to draw out the tension. I was on edge the whole time I was reading. Definitely not a book you can easily put down.

The romance is subtle but no less intense. Mills strips away the edginess from time to time when the hero and heroine are together. Sometimes it's just a sentence or two, sometimes a whole scene, but she gentles the tempo and gives the reader a glimpse into their lives. That change of pace made me savor every nuance of the scene because I knew the peaceful interlude wouldn't last for long.

Honestly, this book reads like a whole season of the television series 24! It has that kind of urgency to it along with those trademark twists and turns that drive the complicated plot towards a resounding climax.

    1. And so much of the secular mystery books have content that I just don't want to read. Love how Christian authors manage to deliver an exceptional read without resorting to that. Good luck, Danie.
