*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 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.)
Also the big old house and it's history and the location. So well written you are there! You will surly enjoy, only problem.. After reading this series I want more PJ Sugar stories.
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!
Lots of mystery and suspence and ofcourse romance.If you like this book you'd also love
Bonnie Hopkins-Seasons, same suspence and rescue throughout the whole book.
I hope theres another PJ Sugar Novel, and this time i hope it has no less than 600pgs!
