Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

*Starred Review* Readers who wonder if inspirational fiction can be fun should read Warren’s hilarious tale of PJ Sugar, private-eye-in-training. PJ lives with her sister, Connie; Connie’s husband; and his oddball Russian parents. Having lost one job after another, PJ is sure she’s finally found the perfect career. Her boss, Jeremy Kane, PI, isn’t so sure, and as his interest in PJ grows, he becomes more and more concerned about her safety. PJ’s other suitor, police detective Boone Buckam, wants her to get out of the private-eye business, too, for the same reason. But PJ is her own woman, and all the misadventures and near misses in the world won’t keep her from doing what she loves. RITA Award–winner Warren’s delightful combination of humor, witty dialogue, danger, and great, quirky characters gives this novel universal appeal. There are obvious comparisons between PJ and Evanovich’s Stephanie Plum. But for readers who like their fun rollicking and squeaky clean, this book—the third in the PJ Sugar series following Nothing but Trouble (2009) and Double Trouble (2010)—is the one for them. Libraries will want the complete set. --Shelley Mosley

More About the Author

Growing up in Minneapolis and attending the U of MN, I learned to love city life, although I'm a woodsy girl at heart. Or maybe I'm an adventurer -- having lived and traveled all over the world, including Siberia Russia as a missionary for eight years. Probably that's why my characters can't sit still, and seem to get into one scrape after another -- they're too much like me! I love God, my family, my country, my church, and feel privileged every day to be able to write stories.

Here's my "Official" Bio.

With over 1 million books sold, critically acclaimed novelist Susan May Warren is the Christy, RITA and Carol award-winning author of over forty-five novels with Tyndale, Barbour, Steeple Hill and Summerside Press. Known for her compelling plots and unforgettable characters, Susan has written contemporary and historical romances, romantic-suspense, thrillers, rom-com and Christmas novellas.

With books translated into eight languages, many of her novels have been ECPA and CBA bestsellers, were chosen as Top Picks by Romantic Times, and have won the RWA's Inspirational Reader's Choice contest and the American Christian Fiction Writers Book of the Year award. She's a three time RITA finalist and an eight time Christy Finalist.

Of her books, Publisher's Weekly has written, "Warren lays bare her characters' human frailties, including fear, grief, and resentment, as openly as she details their virtues of love, devotion, and resiliency. She has crafted an engaging tale of romance, rivalry, and the power of forgiveness."

And Library Journal adds, "Warren's characters are well-developed and she knows how to create a first rate contemporary romance..."

Susan is also a nationally acclaimed writing coach, teaching at conferences around the nation and winner of the 2009 American Christian Fiction Writers Mentor of the Year award.

I would like to extend a heartfelt "Thank you" to Susan May Warren and her publisher for sending me a copy of "Licensed For Trouble" to review for them. I am truly grateful for this generosity. I really appreciate the time, effort and expense it takes to make a reviewer copy available to me.

"Licensed For Trouble" is the fabulous third installment in Susan May Warren's witty and thoroughly entertaining PJ Sugar series. This latest adventure for PJ picks up six weeks after the kiss in book two that offered promise for a relationship between PJ and her boss, Jeremy Kane. The fact that nothing romantic has happened since that kiss has PJ guessing about the meaning of the kiss to begin with. But now, there are more changes in her family and more fumbles with cases that are weighing heavily on our heroine. Boone is exhibiting too much influence on Davy. PJ has her hands full with an inheritance, as well. And a brand new missing person case has fallen into her lap.

This is the best PJ Sugar book to date. The heat with Jeremy is turned up. The challenges are bigger - mansion sized, in fact. The narrative sparkles and the dialogue is witty. Plus, my favorite tattoo artist is back for a cameo appearance. This is a beautiful showcase of Susan May Warren's talent. I'd love to see her write many more PJ Sugar adventures. But since SMW traditionally writes three-book series, if there are none planned for the future, this is a terrific book to end on.

I have loved all of Susan May Warren's books and I have especially enjoyed this light fun romantic mystery series featuring amateur PI PJ Sugar. This series stands out because event though the frame of the story may seem familiar (amateur sleuth, coworker of opposite sex that shares attraction), Warren takes it make it her own with a very likable heroine. Personally I felt this to be the best book in the series. As I have stated in previous reviews, I have never really been a fan of PJ's sister. Connie has just always rubbed me the wrong way throughout the series so I was rather glad that she didn't show up much in this book. It's just how she treats PJ and then the whole business of her new marriage just really irk me. Although I was bit sad to see interaction with Sergei's parents reduced to nothing in this book after the rollicking ride from the last story.

There seems to be two different subplots happening, both with the same focus of finding out about one's past. There is Max, who has amnesia and hires PJ to help him find himself again. As they go along the way, there are details that may make Max NOT want to really discover himself again. There's a good mystery into his background but honestly I felt it played second fiddle to other one that I was more interested in. The other plot deals with PJ being the sole heiress to the Kellogg inheritance and having to discover why she was chosen. PJ hunts down the reasons as to why the Kelloggs might have included her in the will and along the way finds more about the family history than she had been expecting.

In addition to all this, PJ is finally having to come to terms with her relationships between childhood sweetheart Boone and coworker with insane chemistry Jeremy.

Having faced down the demons from her past that kept her running from her hometown of Kellogg for ten years, PJ Sugar is ready to embrace her new life as a private investigator-in-training. However, the final step - believing in and accepting herself - may be the hardest task she's attempted yet. PJ longs to explore the chance of a future with her enigmatic boss, Jeremy Kane, but she has a more difficult time than she expected closing the door on her feelings for her old flame, Boone, and the memories of their legendary exploits that resulted in branding her with the moniker "nothing but trouble." When PJ finds herself the beneficiary of the town's wealthiest widow - a woman she barely knew - the unexpected legacy forces PJ to make a choice. In order to live the life she wants, she must quit running from her past and accept the divine grace that can turn her mistakes and shame into a redeemed treasure, a springboard for a future better than she ever imagined. Couple that with an unexpected mystery surrounding an amnesiac handyman, and PJ's sleuthing and survival skills will be put to the ultimate test. If PJ can come to terms with her past, she might just have a shot at a dream-come-true future - but only if she survives the trouble her latest investigations throw her way...

Susan May Warren's PJ Sugar series just gets better with each successive installment. PJ's laugh-out-loud exploits remain as funny and fresh as ever, and the mysteries she stumbles into and solves with her unparalleled sleuthing instincts have gotten better and more suspenseful with each volume. And the romance - wowzers. For my money Warren pens some of the most swoon-worthy romances in the business, and Jeremy's character is no exception.

PJ Sugar is still crime solving. Or at least trying to. In book three of the PJ Sugar series, we find PJ tracking down bail jumpers. She is on the job at the annual Kellog's Harvest Festival, when she spots a woman who she has been looking for. Tricked and outwitted by the woman, PJ is desperate to prove that she will and can find her.
Adding to the general disorder that PJ's life seems to always be in, PJ is amazed to find out she has inherited the fairy tale house of her childhood dreams. Of course it is no surprise to her, to find the fairy tale house is in ruins. But an offer from a man from her sister's church, seems to be the answer, he will fix her house, if she will find him. He has amnesia and has had it for four year and she agrees to help him find out who he is and where he came from.
This is the beginning of trouble for PJ. Trouble from Boone, her childhood sweetheart, trouble from Jeremy, who she really thinks is interested in her. And trouble for PJ. Will she finally figure out who SHE is?
Another awesome book from Susan M. Warren. Definitely a book that will keep you reading to the end! 372 pages $13.99 US 5 stars
