Photographer Jennie Buchanan unknowingly captures a drug-cartel meeting on film. And now she has become a killer’s next target. Even worse, her only protection from the danger that threatens her life is the man who threatens her heart. Dodging bullets almost seems safer than facing the feelings stirred up by seeing former FBI agent and ex-boyfriend Ethan Justice again. Ethan vows to safeguard Jennie from the deadly men on her trail. And for a second chance at Jennie’s love, he’s willing to risk anything to expose the truth—about the drug smugglers, the past and the future together he still wants.
I think this is the first Susan Sleeman book I’ve read and I enjoyed it :). I’ll be looking for the other books in the Justice series.
I love the concept of siblings – adopted siblings – running a detective agency after their careers in law enforcement. It reminds me in ways of Dee Henderson’s O’Malley series in that sense. The siblings work together to protect Jennie from the bad guys chasing her.
Ethan and Jennie have a past. To each, the other is ‘the one that got away’. But can they find a way to put the past behind them and move on? Together?
Though this wasn’t a book I’d stay up all night reading, Ms. Sleeman did keep me turning the pages at a fairly rapid rate and I’ll be looking for book 2.
