A well written and developed romantic suspense story.
Jennie Buchanan is a photographer that unknowingly captured a drug-cartel meeting on film. Now she has become a killer’s next target. She has The Justice Agency providing her protection. The only problem with that is Ethan Justice is the one man that threatens her heart, and he is the one specifically taking charge of her protection. Which will be safer for Jennie, dodging bullets or facing the feelings stirred up by spending time with former FBI agent and ex-boyfriend Ethan?
The plot of this romantic suspense is very well developed. The characters are well rounded and very easy to understand what makes them who they are. I really enjoyed looking at their backgrounds as they were revealed in relationship with the current situation they were in. Susan did an incredible job of building the story around the past actions and decisions affecting how people deal with current things.
I’m really looking forward to reading the other books in this series and seeing what develops for the rest of the Justice siblings.
I won a free copy of this book through a giveaway that Susan Sleeman had on her blog.

Jennie Buchanan photographs needy children. She's having a show of her photographs for her charity, Photos of Hope, that helps the children receive medical care and food. When someone trashes her photos on display for the show, they send Jennie a message not to open the show. She teams with the Justice Agency for protection and brainpower to decide who is behind destruction of her photos and also her house. Ethan Justice heads up the case. Jennie broke Ethan's heart and her own a few years ago when she walked away from their relationship. Jennie couldn't live with her past, much less explain it to Ethan. Can she now work with him as he protects her from harm but at the same time makes her heart flip?Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Double Exposure (The Justice Agency)
Double exposure is good on keeping up the suspense. Both on who was after stoping Jennie from having her gallery showing and on her past with Ethan. I like the characters. Jennie is doing so much good with her charity, even willing risking her life to help the children in need. The Justice Agency is run and owned by a family of 5 brothers & sisters. They each went into law at different agencys. They were adopted and are close to each other. After thier parents were murdered they came home to help solve it. They then decided to open thier own agency and work together.
Jennie is home getting ready for her photograph show with the procedes to help her charity. She travels the world taking photos of children living in poverty. With the money she makes from selling her photos she is able to help the children with food,education and medicine. Jennie is making a big difference in childrens lives.
Now someone wants to stop the showing. They broke into the gallery and destroyed her work. They also spray painted death threats if she goes ahead with the showing. Now someone is following her and got on the train with her.
The Justice Agency is hired to protect Jennie and the gallery. Ethan used to date Jennie and wanted a future with her. Jennie dumped him hard and than ran away from his life. Ethan is worried about falling for Jennie again. His family is worried about that too. They all recongize her as his Jennie from the past. They all are willing to risk thier lives to protect her and to help her.
This is a Love Inspired novel. So it is a clean read. Also it does mention God,prayer and forgiveness but is not preachy just leaves you feeling good.
I was given this book by the author. This is a honest review of a good book. I look forward to reading more books by Susan in the future.
There is also a bonus story in the book called Hunter and Hope by lenora Worth It is a very short story about second chances too.

Romantic suspense at its finest. Susan Sleeman's "Double Exposure" met and exceeded my expectations. Lots of intrigue, and romance. Ms. Sleeman has done an excellent job of pulling us into the story from the very first sentence.
The past that Jennie wants to keep hidden from Ethan defines who she is and the things she cares about, but holding onto the secret prevents her from living life to its fullest. You have to read the book to find out if she overcomes this obstacle and finds what she’s been searching for.
Another wonderful romantic suspense. I look forward to her next installment in The Justice Agency series.
***I received this book free for review. The above is my honest opinion.

This Suspense is non-stop action and you won’t want to stop reading. The plot moves quickly, but the intensity is lessened by interactions between the hero’s family/coworkers and the heroine, who just happened to dump our hero several years before the story begins. That Romance conflict also moves the story forward and brings intensity into the interactions of all the characters. Dialogue is believable and is easy to read and the characters stay true throughout the story. Susan Sleeman continues to improve her storytelling with each new book.Was this review helpful?

I've always enjoyed Susan's books and this did not disappoint. From the first page, we are involved with the heroine and feel her fear as she is stalked. Then in walks the man assigned to protect her. Jennie Buchanan did not expect to see her ex-boyfriend, Ethan Justice, again. Especially in such close proximity. Sparks fly and danger increases as Ethan fights to keep Jennie safe and Jennie continues to move forward with a photography show that somebody will kill in order to stop. A great book in a great new series. I encourage readers to check out The Justice Agency series. They won't be disappointed.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

I had the privilege this weekend of reading Double Exposure by Susan Sleeman. This is book one in the Justice Agency series, releasing in June 2012.
From the very first chapter, Susan brought action and suspense. She was able to carry that through to the very end, keeping me guessing and wanting to read what would happen next. Not only was the plot very intriguing, with twists and turns throughout, but she brought to life the characters that I, as the reader, wanted to invest in.
Jennifer, the main character, was likeable from chapter one. She endeared herself to my heart - showing survivor skills mixed with a tender spirit. She had characteristics that helped me relate easily to her, putting myself right in the action. Ethan, the book’s hero, was the perfect fit for Jenn. Having worked through his issues before the opening of the book, he was therefore was able to give Jenn the patience, time, and grace that she needed in order to work through her past. It was through their continued interactions that Susan showed so remarkably well how they complemented each other’s strengths and weaknesses. The fact that they had a past before the first chapter made the plot more intriguing and more endearing to me as a reader.
As much as I loved watching Ethan and Jenn move toward each other throughout the book, overcoming the various obstacles that prevented them staying together in the past, I think I loved even more how Susan introduced Ethan’s siblings from the start. They remained ever present throughout the entire story. The close family unit that she depicted so well, that I think all of us want to a certain degree, pulled me in as a reader and made me hungry to keep reading about how this family. I want to know more about the siblings as a whole as well as how they remain close despite life’s inevitable interferences. I am anxiously awaiting the sequels to Double Exposure so I can discover more about each and every sibling, their personal struggles, their background, and each one’s individual story.
In addition to reading about the other siblings, I hope that Susan will keep the reader informed as to how Jenn and Ethan’s love continues. I am anxiously awaiting reading about the next adventure that I am confident Susan will deliver.
Don’t just take my word for it - if you like mystery, adventure, suspense, and of course romance, Double Exposure is the perfect summer read to get you started on a new adventure and a whole new series. I know I can’t wait to find out what adventures lie ahead for the rest of the siblings!

Suspense fills this exciting and dramatic book in the first of The Justice Agency series. From the first line, “Someone threatened to kill her last night. Now a man was following her.” to the last, DOUBLE EXPOSURE will keep you intrigued and compelled to see what happens next.
How did photographer Jennie Buchannan find herself the target of a drug cartel while trying to raise money for suffering children? Could an ex-boyfriend help her reconcile a past with deep-rooted pain while protecting her from lethal thugs, and could she ever recover her faith after years of guilt and rejection by her church family? Could Ethan Justice win her back with any assurance that she wouldn’t run out on him again?
Get ready for a full evening of mystery as Susan’s skillful writing is packed with fast-paced action so you never really find a “stopping place,” because it’s difficult to put one of her novels down. In my opinion, Susan Sleeman is a top-notch romantic suspense author, and I know you’ll enjoy this book.
I’m anxious to read more of the Justice Series!

When photographer Jennie Buchanan's life becomes threatened she has to rely on an old flame to keep her safe. From the first chapter, no first page, you are pulled into the breath taking chase. As Jennie discovers who is after her and why she becomes more dependent on the Justice Agency to keep her alive.
The Justice Agency is a family dedicated to law enforcement and they work together to protect their client. Ethan Justice takes the lead in this case and he's determined to keep Jennie safe at all cost. He's just one of the five member team, I can't wait to see what Susan Sleeman has in store for us in the next addition to this excellent series.
