"Double Trouble" by Susan May Warren Review and Giveaway


Double Trouble

Back Cover: PJ Sugar has finally found something she's good at. Now he is trying not to mess it up. Her first official case as a private investigator -- well, technically a P. I's assistant -- is house sitting for a witness in protective custody. No danger involved, assures her boss Jeremy Kane, much to PJ's disappointment.

At least PJ can take the next 10 days to figure out the rest of her life... Especially whether or not she would accept Detective Boone Buckam's marriage proposal. But one break in by a late night prowler is enough to put Boone's request on hold send PJ's sleuthing skills into overdrive. Clearly the witness is hiding something... And it may cost PJ her life.

About The Author: Susan May Warren is the RITA Award-winning author of more than 25 novels. She spent eight years as a missionary in Russia with her husband and four children before returning to Minnesota's North Shore to write full-time. She loves vanilla lattes and hang out with friends, and she's always on the lookout for a great story. Visit her website at www.Susan May Warren. com.

My Take: My favorite genre of books is a good cozy mystery. But, my next favorite would definitely be suspense/P. I. Susan May Warren's Double Trouble is a light-- hearted P.I. mystery starring the one and only PJ Sugar. PJ has come home to Kellogg, Minnesota, after a tumultuous young adulthood and is ready to prove to those around her that she can take care of herself. Unfortunately, the harder she tries to faster she falls. PJ finds herself in one predicament after another. The good thing about this is that there are two men in her life who seem to be there whenever she needs them to rescue her. Her high school boyfriend, Daniel "Boone" Buckham has renewed his love for her and has asked for her hand in marriage. PJ is thrilled, but this does not come without conditions. Boone wants PJ to give up her PI job because he thinks it's too dangerous for her. This is definitely a dilemma for PJ.

Then again, there is Jeremy Kane, her boss. If PJ loves Boone, then why does she care so much about what Jeremy thinks? Why is she trying so hard to show him that she will make a great PI? Does she hold a secret torch for Jeremy that she isn't even aware of? He doesn't seem to feel the same about her - or does he? Which one of these men will catch PJ's heart - or will either one? You will have to read Double Trouble to find out for yourself!!!!!! I would say definitely a four-star read.

Happy Reading!

I've had so much fun with the giveaway for Liz's "Here Burns My Candle" that I've decided to do the same with Susan's book, "Double Trouble." Once again I have read this book, but it looks great! What better way to recycle books than to let someone else enjoy them instead of sitting on my shelf unread! I would love for someone to read about PJ Sugar's antics and be able to laugh for just a while.
