The continued saga of the Justice Agency, a private detection/protection agency run by adopted siblings, proved to be an engaging read. I have read books three and four in the series, and am interested in going back to read books 1 and 2. I believe the books can be enjoyed in any order. Book 5 comes out in March of this year.
In Thread of Suspicion the youngest Justice sibling, Dani, struggles to exert her independence, and to be viewed as a capable adult by both her family and their current client, Luke Baldwin. In trying to prove Luke’s innocence in the sabotage of his company’s software, designed to protect our soldiers in harm’s way, Dani meets her nemesis, Echo, once again. Both she and Luke’s sister are in Echo’s crosshairs, and both must rely on each of their siblings for protection. Dani fights off the attraction she feels for Luke as she works to be in control of the situation they all have found themselves in. Luke also struggles with these feelings as his company and his livelihood are under attack, and as he is haunted by his past.
Susan Sleeman keeps the romance tense, but clean. The romance and the mystery in her books play well together, neither dominating the other. The pace of the story keeps the reader turning pages, and not wanting to put the book down. I would definitely recommend her books to romance and mystery lovers alike.
I won this book in a contest, and was under no obligation to review it. I am grateful to Ms Sleeman for sending me the copy, and am pleased to have the opportunity to write a favorable review.
