Book Description, Modified from 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 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 naivete 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 pray they can uncover the truth before they become two more casualties.
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.
