Double Trouble (PJ Sugar Series #2) by Susan May Warren

With one solved case under her belt, PJ Sugar is ready to dive into her career as a private investigator. Or at least a PI’s assistant until she can prove herself to Jeremy Kane, her new boss. Suddenly PJ’s seeing crime everywhere. But is it just in her head, or can she trust her instincts? When she takes on her first official case—house-sitting for a witness in protective custody—Jeremy assures her there’s no danger involved. But it soon becomes clear that there is someone after the witness . . . and now they’re after PJ, too. Tyndale House Publishers

Someone should tell Janet Evanovich that her plot was stolen.

What is love? One thing PJ does discover is that love is more than a feeling! Susan May Warren has created a honest, humorous and smart heroine in PJ, who constantly seems to be tripping over her own feet and making promises that she can't keep. The sparks between PJ and Jeremy fly right off the page and will have readers just as torn between Boone and Jeremy as PJ is. PJ is out to prove she has what she can to become a real investigator. She's determined to do whatever it takes to get the job done. I also enjoyed the fact that PJ really does want to do what God has asked her to do; she just isn't quite sure what that is. She seeks His help but can't seem to see herself or her situation the way God does. I can relate to PJ and enjoyed her. I found myself in stitches several times throughout this story. I really liked this novel, it was entertaining, but thought provoking, tender, but mysteriously deep. I like the spiritual thread and the struggle PJ encountered throughout the course of this book - to find out just what God had in store for her life. It's a struggle that most of us face and could relate to. I also enjoyed the fun cast-off zany characters and the mystery PJ tries to get to the bottom of. I'm very thankful that I received a review copy of this book and I have to say, I totally recommend both books in this series. I'm looking forward to reading Licensed for Trouble, in stores soon.

This has to be one of the best books I have read this year. And PJ Sugar is the perfect heroine! I just loved this novel, it was funny, charming, a neat love story and characters that quickly infuse themselves into your day. PJ Sugar wants to be a PI, but everywhere she turns trouble abounds, screaming chinchillas, a Russian in law involved in a car theft ring, and an attempted kidnapping involving.smelly gym socks?? The dialogue in this book really keeps the reader riveted, it's snazzy and to the point and occasionally laugh out loud funny! All of the scenes in the book are visual and gripping. I was brought right into the moment and never released for even a second. This book was very hard to put down! The love triangle between Boone, PJ and Jeremy is sizzling with unexpected turns and I seriously cannot wait for book three to find out how PJ makes her mind up. I hope we figure out her name too! All in all a stand up great book. With action, romance, laughter, the perfect heroine and a two heart stopping heros, this book is one of my all time favorites and I am looking forward to reading more about PJ in book three! Highly recommended!

I needed something lighter to read, then Susan May Warren's Double Trouble came in the mail. The blurb on the back quotes another author (Lori Copeland) saying the "dead-on characterization always makes me laugh." It sounded good to me, and was good too. Just what I needed in fact. PJ Sugar is reinventing herself as a private detective-well, private detective's assistant to be precise. She has a history that makes living back home a little difficult, and romantic ties to the local policeman. I'd know more about it if I wasn't joining the series halfway through, but I never felt like I was missing any necessary information, or that the author was dumping details on me to catch me up. The characters quickly became real and their relationships and backgrounds all fell into place. Detective Boone Buckam: Overly protective-possibly controlling-maybe it's inherent in being a guy-I just don't know if he's the guy for her. PJ Sugar: Overly quick to jump to conclusions-possibly low self-esteem-maybe just inherent in being a woman.But none of it was really a simple as that. The characters built up then overcame their stereotypes. The delightful Russians were just fun to hang around with. The elderly neighbor could be more, or less, batty than she seems. And the little boy was cute. The danger in PJ's adventure is cleverly low-key, and the intrigue definitely fishy but the red herrings still smell okay. I really enjoyed the book, and when, halfway through, I found that characters weren't just "going to church" on occasion, but might even talk about God, that was fine because I already felt like I knew them. It was also fine because the lessons the protagonist learns are ones applicable to many of us, and most certainly to me. So, light but not fluffy, entertaining but though-provoking too, gentle and oddly deep. Some more of this series may turn out to be just what I need on future occasions so I'll make sure to remember the author-Susan May Warren.

I enjoyed reading this book as well as the first book in the series, not because they were stories that were so unique or intricate, but because the characters are fun, and I feel that I can kind of relate to the simple scrapes and life mishaps that the main character experiences in this story. It's nice to read a book that has some deeper spiritual significance in parts, while still being a light-hearted read. It's a good book for a rainy day or light bedtime reading. I am looking forward to another book in this series.

Double Trouble by Susan May Warren is the second title in the PJ Sugar series. PJ has embraced her new role as private detective, even if her boss Jeremy isn't trusting her the way she'd like and her ex-boyfriend and police officer Boone doesn't think she's up to the challenge. They both have to change their tune when PJ undertakes a case that forces her to impersonate a woman in the Witness Protection Program and is sure that her life in is danger. PJ embraces the challenge, despite the threat of exposure. Warren has created a humorous and smart heroine in PJ who constantly seems to be tripping over her own feet and making promises that she can't keep. The sparks between PJ and Jeremy fly right off the page and will have readers just as torn between Boone and Jeremy as PJ is. Warren's writing is never cliched and she delights in upending readers' expectations. This is one series that I hope lasts for twenty or more books!

PJ Sugar roamed the world for ten years, getting in and out of trouble while having fun adventures until she realized that chapter of her life was closed; it was time to go home. She lives in her sister's house in Kellogg, Minnesota with her brother-in-law, his parents and their child; and works as an apprentice to private detective Jeremy Kane. Detective Daniel "Boone" Buck wants to marry her seeing that the girl he loved a decade ago is the woman he loves now though she has doubts as she has come a long way since then. Jeremy sees Sugar as she is today with no romantic lens filtering their relationship; though he deems her unready for dangerous work. Instead he assigns her to impersonate free spirited Dally Morrison, who is to testify against gang leader and drug lord Billy Finch. Fearing Finch has sent a hit man to kill her, Dally needs a new hiding place. PJ's impersonation works too well as she is kidnapped and Dally's house is broken into. The easy assignment has turned dangerous but PJ feels ready for prime time. She likes Dally's neighbor and the group who plays on Dally's softball team and considers deeply how she feels about the two men already in her life. Susan May Warren has written an intriguing mystery filled with humor and excitement. The heroine is trying to learn just who she is and who she wants without hurting Boone or Jeremy, which makes all three in diverse ways endearing to the audience although Double Trouble for PJ. The whodunit is intricately designed to insure the reader has Nothing But Trouble discerning who abducted Sugar acting as Dally. Harriet Klausner
