Double spaces in between words when page is justified

I printed my book justified so all the words at the end of a sentence would align/end at the same place on the page.  What I’ve noticed is that to make this happen without hyphens, the book automatically adds spaces in between words so that the last word in the sentence gets aligned.

 An example:

"...Speeding  past  their  convoy  down  Interstate 95".

Do you see how there is an extra space in between the words?  Is there any workaround to this problem?  Not all sentences do this.  It just depends on whether or not Blurb figures it can fit in a sentence.  So most of the book is fine, but on every page there are a few sentences that look different (like above).  I’ve tried to manually correct each sentence, but that alters how the next sentences will display so I’m not solving anything… just moving my problem somewhere else.  Any ideas?
