Book Review, “Double Cross,” DiAnn Mills author

Double Cross coverDouble Cross, by DiAnn Mills, an FBI: Houston novel, is the second in this series. Another thrilling suspense novel, this book is fast-paced and action-packed.

FBI agent Laurel Evertson has been content with desk work since her partner died the last time she was in the field. But her investigation into a scam targeting the elderly leads her not only back out undercover, but also working with the man she arrested that day and wants only to forget, Morton Wilmington. He claims to have become a Christian and to have changed his life, but Laurel remains unconvinced. Daniel Hilton, an officer with the Houston Police Department, fears for his grandparents’ lives after they are drawn into the scam. He agrees to work undercover with the FBI in order to protect them, placing him with Laurel on the case. Together they work diligently, and reluctantly, with Wilmington to solve the case before more innocent victims are killed.

This was an incredible book. I didn’t want to put it down until the very end. The characters were very believable, and their stories mirrored many real lives of today. The issues with trusting a man claiming to be saved are certainly relevant to many people. I loved Daniel’s grandparents and their spunk, as well as Daniel’s steady faith.

I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys reading suspense novels.

Book Review, “Firewall,” Diann Mills author

Firewall cover

Firewall, by Diann Mills, is a thrilling suspense novel. It grasps the reader’s attention from the first page until the very last! It tells the tale of a young woman’s life turned upside down in a matter of seconds.

Taryn Young, one of the country’s top software developers, thinks she is on the way to her honeymoon when a bomb destroys the airport. Awakening in the hospital, she finds that she and her missing husband are both prime suspects. But Agent Grayson Hall has a gut instinct that Taryn is innocent. As the investigation continues, revealing that her marriage was falsified, coworkers were involved in the plot, and close friends begin turning up dead, Taryn and Grayson work together to find her best friend’s missing child and solve the case. It seems, however, that many people want her out of the picture, and Grayson has a tough job keeping her safe.

I loved this book. Its many twists and turns kept my attention to the end. While I suspected the culprit about halfway through, there was no way to be sure until the last few pages. I especially liked the idea that the main character believed in abstinence until marriage. If you enjoy reading Christian suspense novels, you will want to read this book!
