Publisher's Description

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.

Editorial Reviews

In this first installment of Christy Award–winning Mills’s Deadly Pursuit trilogy, beautiful but socially awkward Taryn Young marries Francis “Shep” Shepherd after a brief courtship. Acutely aware of the national importance of her software design skills, she is hooked by Shep’s appreciation of her work. But as they board a plane for their honeymoon, a bomb explodes. Shep disappears; airport tapes show him fleeing just before the explosion. FBI agent Vince Bradshaw accuses Taryn of planting the bomb with Shep. But Bradshaw’s partner, Grayson Hall, believes Taryn’s protests of innocence. Hall and Taryn join forces to find the connection between the bombing and the security software she is developing—and to find their respective paths back to God. The murder of Taryn’s best friend Claire and the abduction of Claire’s daughter, Taryn’s godchild, raise the stakes higher. The surprising identities and motives of those villains, and the growing trust between Taryn and Grayson, will keep readers turning pages in this fast-moving, intricately plotted thriller.
Taryn Young is a brilliant software developer, but after she allows her heart to fool her head, she finds herself in more trouble than she could have ever imagined. She is now the sole suspect in a major FBI case and must convince the agents in charge that she, too, is a victim. Agent Grayson Hall has been assigned to her case, and despite his professional judgment and his partner’s instincts, he wants to believe Taryn and protect her. The two forge an uneasy alliance as she seeks evidence proving her innocence. The more they learn, the more danger they put themselves in, along with those around them. Mills (Attracted to Fire, 2011) takes readers on an explosive ride. The terror is all the more chilling because it could easily be a headline story on the nightly news, and Mills’ characters spring to life through their fears, strengths, and quirks. A story as romantic as it is exciting, Firewall will appeal to fans of Dee Henderson’s romantic suspense stories.
4 Stars. Mills once again demonstrates her spectacular writing skills in her latest action-packed work. From the opening sequence that quite literally begins with a resounding bang, the story moves at a fast pace that will keep readers riveted until the climactic end. The cast of characters, including the villains, is diverse and well fleshed-out, particularly given the widespread scope of the story. It’s great to see an intelligent heroine who’s actually able to showcase her smarts.

    What an exciting book! This book kept my attention from the first page and throughout the whole book. This is the 1st book in the Houston Series by Diann Mills. Taryn Young is a young newlywed getting ready to board a plane with her new fianc. While she is in the restroom, a bomb explodes injuring and killing numerous people. When Taryn comes out of the restroom, she finds her new fianc is gone. Questions are being asked and Taryn and her new fianc are under suspicion for setting the bomb. Agent Grayson Hall comes on the scene and he has to answer the hard questionIs Taryn really responsible for this horrendous act? This book has lots of suspense and also some romance to go along with it. I would definitely recommend this book to everyone! I received this book from bookfun for my honest opinion.

    MY REVIEW-This was a great suspense novel. The action starts within the first few pages, and it doesn't stop until the end. I really liked the two main characters in this read. Taryn is smart and quite brave. The only problem I had with her character is that she is able to start caring for another man so soon after a disastrous relationship on which she was so duped. That part of the book didn't seem the least bit realistic.

    Grayson has the perfect personality for his job, and his intuition is usually on target. He made a great hero in this read! He even seems to have a better understanding of how Taryn should feel about her whirlwind romance gone awry than Taryn does herself.

    However, apart from the romance in the read, the plot is great! The story moves right along with interesting sub plots as well. I did stay up late to finish this one! I'm usually pretty good at figuring out the " who done it" reads. I never saw this ending coming! Never! It makes me wonder if I missed some clues along the way, or if maybe there aren't any? Anyway, finding out who was behind the attacks came as a big surprise.

    This was a great read that I had a VERY hard time putting down! Fast paced action, great suspense, and great characters...especially Grayson and his uncle..make this a book I highly recommend!

    I was given this book through bookfun.org for my honest opinion which I have given.

    I am a huge fan of DiAnn Mills' mysteries. I have read all of them. I was thrilled when I was able to receive her latest book through the Book Club Network in exchange for my honest review. I was not disappointed.

    What would you do if you had been swept off your feet in a whirlwind romance, married, on your way to your honeymoon, only to have it interrupted by the bombing of the airport and you and your husband are chief suspects? This is just the beginning of this fast paced adventure. Taryn Young is a brilliant computer software developer, but why would someone want to implicate her in this horrendous crime and even attempt to kill her. Taryn soon discovers that events in her life are not what she believed them to be. Those she loves best are in harm's way. She has to choose who she will trust and who is out to get her.

    All of DiAnn Mills' mysteries are fast paced with true to life characters with whom you will sympathize. What I like best, is that unlike some other mysteries, they are not only have a good plot, but they also have a point. My ladies book club has done several of them as there is much to discuss besides a good story. Firewall is no exception.

    I look forward to the next installment in this series!!!!

    Heroes are not always male, as proved by the protagonist of this Christian fiction. With her IQ of 150 and her knowledge of martial arts, Taryn Young knows how to handle herself. Add in her courage in the face of grave danger, and . . . WHAM! Female Hero without a cape!

    Suspense and romance intertwine as the story unfolds. People die. Some are brutally murdered. Who is the cause? Who can be trusted? This is a complex tale sure to keep the reader's interest.
