My Review:
Susan May Warren quickly became one of my favorite authors when I toured her first 2 PJ Sugar novels, Nothing But Trouble and Double Trouble. Her unique writing style captures the reader instantly and takes them on a whirlwind adventure ride. Outstanding, outstanding, outstanding! I loved the final book in this series just as much as the first two! Though I’ll admit it was bittersweet for me, knowing this was the end of a quirky and loving series!

PJ’s back and she’s bringing with her all her trouble, all her wit and all her detective skills. She’s still on her way to earning her PI license, and she just may be falling for her boss….or her old boyfriend! Then the mystery begins, her PI skills kicking in, when she becomes the recipient of of an estate, especially when she’s not related to the family! Watching PJ through this story, and the other two, was wonderful. I saw a woman who was strong in her faith but filled with flaws, too. I loved the mystery and romance of the story but the best part was all the laugh-out-loud elements within!

I definitely recommend this book, this entire series really, with highest of 5 stars. But be prepared to follow PJ on her troublesome PI instincts and laugh out loud at her, um, well….problematic troubles. PJ Sugar is definitely the quirky, witty and hilarious Stephanie Plum of the Christian fiction world!
