No Way Out by Susan Sleeman

Alyssa Wells has uncovered evidence that her police officer husband was murdered by his partner-a dangerous claim in a small town. After two tours in Iraq, protecting Alyssa and her children shouldn’t be a problem for private investigator Cole Justice. Alyssa feels drawn to him, but how can she trust anyone after everything she’s been through? Cole’s sure his heart is closed off to love, but Alyssa and her children seem to have found a way in. As the killer draws closer, Alyssa realizes she’s trusting Cole with more than her safety.

My review:
    I'm not much for romance books, but I do enjoy romantic suspense and have read several books in the Love Inspired Suspense line, so when the author wanted some people to review her book, I got on the list.

   Susan is a new author to me, and if this book is any indication, she is a great author. These books aren't long, but she packed a great suspense story into the pages that kept me turning the pages to see what was going to happen next. I liked her characters, especially the Justice family, and hope to read the other books in this series, which this book is #3 of. After reading this book, I would say you don't need to read them in order, though if you're going to read them, you may as well read them in order.

  A book like this proves that an author can write a great suspense novel and keep it Christian, clean, and curse-free. I give the book five stars.
