Blog Tour & Contest: PJ Sugar: Double Trouble

You've got to love a girl who fends off criminals with donut holes, dons a wig and faux tattoos for the sake of an investigation, and wants to follow God more than the lure of her past life--and love.

I confess to shouting with glee when I received my copy of Double Trouble, while holding off my daughter, who soon realized she'd have to wait in line to read Susan May Warren's second installment in the PJ Sugar series.

My shouting soon gave way to laughing out loud. PJ just can't stay out of trouble, for all her good intentions. What's PJ's life like in Double Trouble?

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 are after PJ too.

I can relate to PJ. She's not perfect, but she's trying to do the right thing. She wants to help others, and she means well. She doesn't feel like others understand her and sometimes she doesn't understand herself, either.

One of the things I appreciate about Warren's writing style is how she so effortlessly weaves spiritual truths into a fun, fast-paced novel. In some Christian fiction, the story grinds to halt with a "We now interrupt your regularly scheduled reading while the author imparts a spiritual lesson" moment. Not so in Warren's books.
