Craving Routine

Susan Sleeman here! As I sat down to come up with a topic for my blog post this morning, I couldn’t seem to think of anything. I’ve recently moved cross-country. I’m still not settled into a routine andI find myself not being able to focus.

I didn’t realize how important routine was in my life. Don’t get me wrong, I love adventures, but there’s something comforting that at the end of the adventure I can come home to a safe haven where I can go on auto pilot and not really think about everything I’m doing. I miss that feeling. The comfort of it all.

No Way Out by Susan Sleeman
In my upcoming May release, No Way Out, my heroine Alyssa craves the same thing. Her life is turned upside down when her police officer  husband is killed on duty and they find drugs in his car. His partner steps up, helping her take care of her twins, but life is in turmoil. She doesn’t think things can get any more unsettled when she finds out this partner is involved in illegal dealings as well.

My life isn’t quite so dramatic. Yet, right now, I can really feel her distress. So what about you? Do you like routine or do you like to mix things up?

Here’s a sneak peek at the third book in The Justice Agency series.
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.
