Book: 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 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.


I haven't had time to read this one yet, our summer has been a bit wild!  But I have read a couple of DiAnn Mills books before and they are totally enthralling.  Like suck-you-in-can't-put-it-down good!  This one is a different genre than some of the other ones I've read, but I'm hoping to get to it this week!

ETA: I picked this one up the other night at around 7:30pm... and finished it at 2:30am, all 400 pages.  I thought it wouldn't be suspenseful since it was an after the fact story... wrong!  This one is a page turner and I had NO idea how it would end.  Not exactly my favorite kind of story since I get all tense and have to finish before I can go to bed, but it was a good story.

I don't know anything about the FBI, but a few things seemed a little far fetched to me.  Other than that, the motivation for the story will seriously make you think.  Real world application here!
