No Way Out by Susan Sleeman

My book review today is a Love Inspired Suspense Book, the third book in The Justice Agency Series, No Way Out by Susan Sleeman. I really liked this book, I really like the series. I don't think I have read one of Susan's books I haven't enjoyed. This book is very well written and I loved the Justice family. All of them were adopted but have become a strong family unit, that really cares for each other. Cole was one of my favorites.

Alyssa Wells is a young widow with a set of twins. She is out jogging and hears a conversation she wasn't suppose to hear; how her husband was framed and was set up as a drug dealer. She falls and reveals her presence and runs for her life. As she hides from her pursuers she encounters Cole Justice. Cole watched as she ran towards him and helps her to escape, he then brings her home to hide her from the men chasing her.

Cole and his sister Dani explain how they investigate for people who don't have the finances to hire help. They ask to help her, her children, and clear her husband's name.

Alyssa's marriage was rocky at the end. After her husband assaulted her, they had separated and then her husband was murdered but because of the evidence she was refused benefits so life was a struggle with two seven year olds. Nolan Saunders had stepped up and helped her, now she has learned he was the one who set up her husband and now wants her dead. Could she ever trust her judgement again?

Cole has issues of his own. He felt responsible for the death of his best friend in Iraq, the woman he loved wrote him a Dear John Letter while he was in Iraq, and he believed God had turned his back on him. His heart is frozen and he's not sure how to go on. He didn't understand Alyssa's faith in God through all she had been through but he saw a strength in her he envied. Could he trust the God his parents had shared with him? Would God forgive him and help him find peace? Could he make a new life with this family he is so drawn to?

I love the way faith is woven into the story.  God wants to help us through those hard times. Being a Christian doesn't mean things will be easy but God is always there to help us through. How great is that? He loves us so much. You can find out more about this book from Love Inspired or at You really need this book. God bless you.
