Mills shifts narrative perspectives from one main character to the next as she moves from chapter to chapter. Meghan, Ash, and Lindsay are very interesting people to follow, and the plot is well developed, not losing the interest of the reader and always developing a new twist to keep the interest high. The very stubborn personalities of Ash and Meghan bring them into quite a ride of a relationship. The two agents' bravery and tenacity provide a sharp contrast to the fearful and confused Lindsay. And the added romance that Mills throws in does not distract from the storyline; it only improves it by being careful not to annoy the reader with anything overly sappy.
The setting of Attracted to Fire is a rural Texas ranch where Secret Service agents protect the recovering Lindsay after increasing threats have been made on her life. What seems to be a mundane assignment for the agents turns out to be an incredibly dangerous and shocking mission, as murders and mysterious happenings begin to occur seemingly for no reason. Lindsay faces the choice to change and better herself, but this proves no easy way out as her stalker determines to make her life miserable when she is sober. Turmoil haunts her at every turn, and the lives of her family members and herself ultimately depend on her actions. The book, of course, hits its ultimate climatic point near the very end, making it both a memorable and powerful story.
The main characters certainly are not all perfect, which makes them easy to relate to and understand. Learning from errors and realizing the critical need for self-improvement, compassion, forgiveness, trust, and faith, helps them all to better themselves and those around them. After reading this book, the Bible verses in Psalm 46:1-2 seemed to sum up the theme beautifully, stating, "God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore, we will not fear, though the earth gives way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea" (NIV).
I would undeniably recommend this book to teenagers; it hit just about everything from romance to mystery to adventure, and left me with a feeling of encouragement and satisfaction, as well as new insight on some very critical life lessons. Michelle Radd, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com
AJH2 Stars Out Of 5One Word Change how I feltFebruary 11, 2014AJHQuality: 2Value: 2Meets Expectations: 1One Word changed how I felt about this book. I was totally into this book and it was a possible Book Club book, but then it had one and ONLY one word, a cuss word that made me change my mind completely. If writing a Christian Book there is no need for one word period, it doesn't help things look more real, even if it's the bad guy. It was totally NOT needed and it was such a great story but I lost all respect and joy in reading the book. Sorry I can't recommend.

What an amazing suspense mystery and action book!!! Had me tight in grips. You know some books give you so much detail that you tend to skip few paragraphs then others give so little that you back checking if you somehow missed something.. Well this book is so perfectly balanced that you eat each word comma and a period.. I loved it!!! It reviled the enemy step by step at perfect times. Each character was well rounded that it made you want to believe in their goodness and integrity but left just a tiny room for suspicion.. Solid-Solid book haven't read this good action in a while. I loved each character their actions were well justified nothing ridiculous or over the top.. I even felt bad for the adversary and I liked the fact that author did him justice in the end.
By reading her books I realize that DiAnn Mill is trying bring toughness and capabilities in women out to the table and I love the fact that she isn't pushing too hard in a way making them supper human. They are still women with intuition emotions and curves that drive men nuts!! A2Z and Meghan are perfectly fit, and Chip just surprised me at each turn, I loved the outcome of the whole book!!
Cant wait to read next one in this series. This my favorite so far by this author but I suspect she will surprise me again!
