Nothing but Trouble
Written by a favorite author of mine, Susan May Warren, the PJ Sugar series served as a lifesaver for me a few years ago. Okay, maybe they didn’t really save my life, but it sure felt that way! I had read several Janet Evanovich novels and while the writing is fantastic, the plot twists hilarious, and the characters wacky and lovable, the novels also contained graphic sex scenes. Yikes! I needed a new series, stat!
Enter PJ Sugar.
Poor PJ. Destined for trouble, unsure of herself, and deep in the middle of a mystery, PJ needs to figure things out and figure them out fast. Called to come home by her sister, PJ finds herself back in the town of Kellogg, Minnesota after being on the run for the past ten years. It isn’t long before she is drawn into a murder investigation. Can PJ handle a four-year-old boy, crazy Russian relatives, and a good looking ex-boyfriend all while tracking down a murderer? More importantly, can she change her identity from Nothing But Trouble to her new start as a child of God?
Over the past few weeks I loved re-reading this series. Susan May Warren excels at reminding her readers of truths close to God’s heart. Her books shine with just the right amounts of drama, humor, and biblical truth. Plus, she’s from Minnesota and many of her books are set in familiar places like Minneapolis and Lake Superior’s North Shore.
