Book Description

March 18 2010 Call of Duty (Book 2)
2011 Christy Award winner!
Border Patrol Agent Danika Morales has sworn to protect the southern borders of our nation, but that oath has cost her. Two years ago, her husband, Toby, was killed trying to help the very immigrants Danika was responsible for sending back to Mexico. His murder was never solved. But now, a recent string of attacks and arrests leads her to believe that someone in McAllen is profiting from sneaking undocumented immigrants into the country . . . and it may somehow be tied to Toby’s death.

3.0 out of 5 stars Ok April 4 2011
Format:Paperback
This book was ok. The story was good and was written fairly well. I was grabbed right away, but then my attention waned a bit as the book went on. There was also far too much mention of God (overseeing every little thing in a persons life) and faith than there needed to be.

5.0 out of 5 stars Intrigue + Romance + Controversy = Great Read April 14 2010
By A. E. Arndt - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
A bullet-proof vest can protect Border Patrol Agent Danica Morales from a gunshot wound, but it can't protect her from grief. It's been two years since her husband was murdered and his killers are still at large. But she doesn't have time to grieve; she's dedicated her life to protecting the border from two-legged coyotes.

In Danica's world, coyotes are greedy criminals who prey on the desperate who long to leave their life of poverty in Mexico. Instead, the life their victims find is one enslaved to a grasping outlaw who takes all their earnings for the privilege of being "free" in the United States. The Border Patrol does their best to stop the coyotes, but someone has been tipping them off. Who has chosen money over the safety of the Border Patrol?

Early in the book, you can guess who Danica's love interest will be, but this is not your typical "happily ever after." Dr. Alex Price believes that everyone who comes into his ER should be treated equally, regardless of citizenship or ability to pay. Danica believes that everyone who crosses the border should do so legally, with papers. Both are dedicated to their beliefs on this issue, so there are a lot of sparks.

SWORN TO PROTECT gives us a strong, believable heroine with plenty of action and intrigue. This "can't-be-put-down" book has plenty of twists and turns that will keep you guessing to the very end.

4.0 out of 5 stars Life from death April 19 2010
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Danika Morales is a Border Agent, patrolling along the Rio Grande and attempting, along with other agents, to do the impossible - stem the flood of illegal immigrants and the even more dangerous influx of Mexican drug cartel activity. Though she believes her job is for the good of the country, Danika is an agent because of a far more personal reason: her husband was murdered two years earlier and the case is yet to be solved. In spite of her own efforts to move on, the unanswered questions about her husband's murder and her Border Agent brother-in-law's growing instability and volatility stand in the way. When attempts are made on Danika's life and her niece disappears, the battle for America's security becomes something more, a battle for faith and family.

Sworn to Protect is a romantic suspense that deals with a difficult and often controversial subject. Di Ann Mills does a great job of keeping the entertainment value of the story and the weight of the subject matter in balance. Through the medium of a story, Mills reminds us of how complicated the issue of illegal immigration is. On the day her husband was murdered our heroine discovered he had been an illegal immigrant activist for some time. The doctor she finds herself falling far, though not an activist, regularly treats battered illegal women with the promise of not reporting them. And, unknown to Danika, her trusted housekeeper of years is working in the country under forged papers. Even the people who seem most upstanding and legitimate in this border town are in fact holding illegals in what amounts to virtual slavery for their own financial gain.

With over one million books in print and fifteen novels, Di Ann has changed directions in her writing career from cozy mysteries and romance to the arena of suspense with good success. Readers that love Terri Blackstock and Dee Henderson will find the Call of Duty series a welcomed addition to their reading library. It's refreshing to see seasoned authors like Robin Carroll, Vicki Hinze, and Di Ann Mills stretching their wings a bit and perhaps the wings of their readers as well. Hardcore suspense fans may find the emphasis on relationships a bit of a test but issues of family and loyalty are matters we all can relate to.

With solid characters, a convincing plot, and good story resolution, Sworn to Protect is a fine addition to the field of faith-based suspense. For those who go hay-wire when they discover a book they are reading has a hint of religion in it, be forewarned. Though far from preachy, this is definitely a novel that deals with matters of faith. Then again, when faced with the mysteries of life and death, most people in the real world struggle with what they do and do not believe about ultimate matters. Danika's journey illustrates this well. Just compare an opening sentence of this novel with its last ...

... for Danika, the depths meant death, and it didn't' discriminate among its victims.

... for Danika, the depths had brought back life and love.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Story Line About a Current Topic May 18 2011
By Hungry for words - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book was chosen for our book club, and I chose to download it onto my Kindle. I enjoyed the story line and the pace of the book kept me up late at night. I learned things I never thought about regarding the lives of the Border Patrol. Mills presented different opinions people have and never made you feel like you had to agree with either side. Characters were believable. You really felt for them and the difficulties their jobs forced them to go through. I would recommend this to others.

5.0 out of 5 stars Border Patrol April 14 2010
By Sally - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Thank you to CFBA and Tyndale House Publishers for my copy of this terrific suspense novel. I enjoyed this one, and I honestly hated to interrupt my reading to take time to eat or sleep.

The writing is third-person point of view, with short chapters--which I prefer. The story seems to move along at a faster pace as I flip pages.

The characters are all quite believable, and even a bit of romance is included. Both viewpoints of immigration are presented in a balanced manner, allowing the reader to reach to her own opinion.

The plot is a smooth flow of heart-thumping action. I've learned such a good bit about the hard work of the Border Patrol and how our Texas borders are protected.

Discussion questions are included. This is a suspense novel I recommend.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another terrific read from DiAnn Mills March 27 2010
By Stacey - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
First of all, I would like to extend a heartfelt "Thank you" to DiAnn Mills and her publisher for sending me a copy of "Sworn To Protect" to review for them. I have always been grateful for this generosity, and I am trying to improve at being consistent in taking the time to thank these wonderfully giving individuals in a public forum. I really appreciate your time, effort and expense in making a reviewer copy available to me.

DiAnn Mills has put another winner of a novel on the shelf with her latest endeavor. The second novel in the Call of Duty series, "Sworn To Protect", is the story of Border Patrol agent Danika Morales. It's been two years since her husband was murdered, and she is no stranger to death threats in her line of work. But when the threats are accompanied by taunts that Agent Morales will never find her husband's killer, discomfort gets a bit too close. Still, Danika must raise her deaf four-year-old daughter and attempt to maintain good relations with the only family she has. But her husband's brother, also a BP agent, has never gotten over Toby's death and is making his wife and kids (and sister-in-law) suffer for it.

This electrifying novel has it all: excitement, suspense, action, romance, and a sub-plot seemingly ripped from today's headlines. Several aspects of illegal immigration are brought to light, making this issue appear much less black-and-white than I once believed. As a result, I am becoming more prayerful and compassionate when I hear the term. This is a must read for all fans of Christian romantic suspense novels.
