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 Thoughts:
5 Stars!!!
This was my first time reading a book by this author so I didn't really know what to expect but the description of this book really intrigued me from the get go, and the glowing endorsements from two of my favorite authors didn't hurt either! :)
I loved this book! I've read a number of Christian romantic suspense novels and one of the things that struck me about this one was how truly unique all aspects of the storyline were! I loved both Taryn and Grayson, they were such awesome characters! Firewall hooked me at page one and didn't let me go until I reached the end of the epilogue! This book has it all, awesome suspense, sweet romance, a few heart wrenching moments, a very original plot, and a longer chain of villains than I have ever seen in a book before (BTW, I totally did not guess who the true mastermind was. Thinking about it after the fact, that person's identity probably should have been obvious to me but at the time I was totally and completely stumped!) I don't want to risk spoiling anything so I will just say that I absolutely loved Firewall from start to finish! I highly recommend it, and I look forward to reading more books by Diann Mills in the future!

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author via CFBA in exchange for an honest review. The above is my honest opinion. All thoughts and opinions are one hundred percent my own.
