Firewall -- A Book Review

This week, the
Christian Fiction Blog Alliance
is introducing
Tyndale House Publishers, Inc. (July 1, 2014)
DiAnn Mills's been a long time since I've read a book I literally did not want to put down.  DiAnn Mills wove together a story that had me wanting to stay up past my bedtime, eat cereal for dinner, and wish for a moment I had started the book on a Saturday when work wouldn't get in the way.

The heroine of the story is Taryn Young.  Married just the day before, she goes to the bathroom at the airport prior to boarding a flight to her honeymoon and is the victim of an airport bombing.  Waking up in a hospital room, she finds she is being guarded by the police as she and her new husband are prime suspects.  She learns quickly her new husband left her at the airport as soon as she entered the bathroom and disappeared.  A computer programmer, her big project is at risk of ending up the wrong hands if the crime can't be solved quickly.  Local FBI agent Grayson Hall sees honesty in Taryn's eyes and actions that leads him to believe she has been decieved and works tireless to protect her and figure out the tangled weave of deception that has forced their lives to cross paths.

This book has made me a fan of DiAnn Mills writing and I look forward to finding more treasures in her other stories.

Hope Deferred -- A Book Review

This week, the
Christian Fiction Blog Alliance
is introducing
Hope Deferred
HopeSprings Books (July 1, 2014)
Elizabeth Maddrey


Elizabeth Maddrey is a semi-reformed computer geek and homeschooling mother of two who loves a good happily ever after.

Elizabeth Maddrey began writing stories as soon as she could form the letters properly and has never looked back. Though her practical nature and love of computers, math, and organization steered her into computer science at Wheaton College, she always had one or more stories in progress to occupy her free time. This continued through a Master’s program in Software Engineering, several years in the computer industry, teaching programming at the college level, and a Ph.D. in Computer Technology in Education. When she isn’t writing, Elizabeth is a voracious consumer of books and has mastered the art of reading while undertaking just about any other activity.

She lives in the suburbs of Washington, D.C. with her husband and their two incredibly active little boys.
