No Way Out
Susan Sleeman

Romance Suspense | Inspirational Mystery

NO WAY OUT grabs you from the first page and will have you on the edge of your seat throughout the book. The main characters can't let their guard down or the enemy will pounce. NO WAY OUT is part of a series, but stands alone just fine. It will make you want to read the others, too, which is awesome if you love a good series. The Justice Agency is a family of Private Investigators that takes on pro bono cases.

In NO WAY OUT, the main character, Alyssa, finds herself in need of a Private Investigator after she is in the wrong place at the wrong time and overhears a couple of dirty cops talking. As she is on the run, Cole happens to find her and provides safety. It couldn't have been played out any better. God certainly had a hand in them finding each other.

Susan Sleeman does a wonderful job developing Cole and Alyssa. They both have emotional baggage from their pasts, they are flawed and readers are able to relate to them easily. Alyssa's children in the story bring a little comic relief to the story when most of it is dark and edgy. The plot moves along at a great pace and all of the plot lines are tied up nicely at the end.

There are some unexpected twists to the story. Just when you think everything is over, and you are on your way down from the climax, other things creep up on you and you find yourself wide eyed with your mouth open. I love stories about families and reading about the other family members in The Justice Agency and how they worked with one another was awesome. There is so much respect and adoration. If you are looking for an inspirational romantic suspense story that pulls you in from the first page and never lets up to the end, I recommend NO WAY OUT by Susan Sleeman.
