"Firewall" is a Christian romantic suspense novel. The characters were interesting and some were developed into complex-motive characters. I found it believable that Taryn was initially fooled even though she's a smart woman, but it did take her longer than I expected to believe the truth. The suspense was from physical danger to several characters; this was a very deadly story to be a character in. There was very little down-time as events raced along. The romance was based on two people coming to trust and care for each other (rather than many repetitions of "(s)he's sooo hot!")
The Christian element was mainly some short prayers asking God to help them with the situation and the realization that God is there with them through the confusion. There were no sex scenes. There was no bad language. Overall, I'd recommend this interesting, suspenseful novel.
Firewall is an outstanding book by Diann Mills. The book keeps you in suspense from the beginning. There are twists and turns throughout the whole book. There is also romance present. This is the first book in a series. I can not wait to read the next one due out in April.
I received this book from the Book Club Network in exchange for my honest opinion.
With Firewall, DiAnn Mills draws her readers in, holding them breathlessly hostage until the very last page. She is a master at her craft and her genre. I really enjoyed this book and am anxiously awaiting book two in the series when it releases.
I got hooked on DiAnn Mills' writing with her book The Survivor, and I look forward to each new title. I was very excited to read and review Firewall and had been anxiously awaiting its release. As expected she took me on an edge-of-your-seat read that I just couldn't put down.
I kept wondering if Taryn could be involved or if she has been set up. If she's been set up then who did it and why? Would Grayson continue to help her even when it looked bad for Taryn's honesty?
There was a surprise character that I just fell in love with, he's just great! I'd love to tell you who, but.....I can't spoil the story for you, now can I? Well, let's just say that he's a real buddy when Taryn needs one the most.
I think part of what made the story so riveting is that with the increase in terrorism and violence it is something you could expect to see on the 6 o'clock news. In some ways it was a little scary thinking about an airport bombing, imagining how easily it could happen nearby, to people you know.
One of the elements I liked the most was learning about the investigative process and all of the work that goes into bringing the perpetrators of such a crime to justice. Detailed and interesting but still a novel, a story above all else.
Firewall is exciting, thrilling, and once you pick it up you won't want to set it down until you know who did what and why. Don't miss this latest book from DiAnn Mills!
(I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for my review. All opinions are my own.)
The book is filled with great suspense and intrigue. Once I started it I did not want to put it down! I This was my first time to read a book by DiAnn Mills and I look forward to the next one in this series.
DiAnn Mills in her new book, Firewall Book One in the FBI: Houston series published by Zondervan gives us a new adventure with Kariss Walker and Tigo Harris.
From the back cover: 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 theyre both considered prime suspects in the attack. Further, the FBI is convinced her husband isnt who he appears to be.
Agent Grayson Halls number-one priority is to catch those responsible for the days 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 naivet 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.
A bombing act of terror at the airport, murder and a kidnapping are just some of the ingredients that Ms. Mills puts in this top notch mystery thriller. There is also the husband who seems not to be who he claims to be, Taryn, who is so clueless as to what is going on and keeps making mistakes that make her look more and more guilty and Grayson, the agent who believes her and is determined to find out the truth. Firewall is a thriller in that the main characters lives are put in deadly danger through the course of these investigations. I think this is Ms. Mills best work yet and her characters are well-defined. Once the action gets going Ms. Mills revs up the thriller quotient considerably which will have you reading and flipping pages as fast as you can. Dont start this book late at night because it will be very difficult to put it down or stop thinking about it. I recommend this book highly and am greatly looking forward to the next book in the series.
