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

I loved this series! I am so sad it is over... Please someone tell me there is a 4th book I am not aware of! Well, a girl can wish... I have so enjoyed PJ's journey, her adventures, quirks, hopes, curiosity and drive. She is someone that just brings life to the party. Book 3, finds her figuring out how to learn to be who she is...not forsaking her past but not letting it run her present or future. Instead she is learning what it means to be adopted, grafted into a new family. To be a heiress, a child of God. And that when God joins you to Him you are someone new... the you, you were always meant to be in Him. The old has passed away and behold, God makes all things new... and that includes us!

I don't want to give too much away but I will say that I enjoyed the relationship struggles, highlights and more with PJ trying to figure out things between her & Boone verses her & Jeremy. It certainly kept things interesting and add some nice sparks to all the fun! One line that Jeremy said in the book, was something to the effect of... I'm not sure if I am stealing you from Boone or if he is stealing you from me. Woozier!

Warren is so gifted at creating not only characters that seem to live and breath, but also stories and plots that keep the pages turning; humor and most of all spiritual depth. I have come away really thinking about the spiritual food found in each of these novels. So not only was I blessed with stories that just left me grinning and eager for more, but also with something to bless me in my walk, pointing my eyes and heart back to my Hero! Thank you, Susan May Warren for sharing your heart, your stories and for blessing us! (And if you do decide to write another PJ story please let me know.)

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.

Susan May Warren has a knack for writing books that are just plain fun! There mystery and suspense, a touch of humor and human silliness and best of all, the over-arching theme of God's grace that's bigger than all our sins and foibles. The P.J. Sugar series is top of the line. I think there's somebody or something in the story and characters that just about anybody can identify with.

I LOVE Susan May Warren! I have just recently discovered her treasure trove of books. And oh my word! What a fantastic author. Her wit and humor had me laughing out loud in public places (Embarrassing, but so satisfying!). Her suspense in the final chapters had me gripping the book, willing myself to turn the page, yet savoring every moment. The character of PJ Sugar is clever, hilarious, and so likable! And Jeremy Kane?! Well done. Just...well done. Bravo.
Just to clarify, I don't usually enjoy women's contemporary fiction. Often I find it boring and depressing. So this book rocked my world. I could not figure out the mystery before PJ did, which made me love her even more.
As an author myself, I am dazzled by Susan May Warren's use of verbs. Page after page in my copy of "Licensed for Trouble" has been dog-eared where I found clever writing that I loved. The only other author I've ever done that for is L.M. Montgomery. Yes, I loved it that much, and will certainly read it again!
I was also moved by the spiritual content as PJ discovered who she was in Jesus Christ. A princess.
Thank you for this fantastic book! You had me from page one of book one to the very end. Can't wait to read more from you!
