Book Review- Double Trouble


I just finished reading a fun book. Actually I read it a couple of weeks ago but I was offered the book by the publisher for a blog tour. Today is my assigned day to post. I have had to be patient because I wanted to tell you all about it as soon as I finished reading.
This was a fun read. Opp's sorry I said that already. Double Trouble is the second in a series called the PJ Sugar Series. P.J. Sugar is the main character of the book. She is a fun quirky girl trying to get her life straight and follow God's will.
In this the second book she has returned to her hometown and has begun working as an assitant to Private Investigators Jeremy Kane. The story begins with P.J. and Jeremy on a stake-out. P.J. seems to always get into some kind of trouble or scrape. She seems to read between the lines and sees drama or intrique around every corner.
And, she usually ends up right. Along for the ride is P.J.'s old/current boyfriend police Detective Boone. The two were high school sweethearts. Boone seems to be lost in the past which doesn't settle well with P.J. She wants Boone to accept her for who she is.
Personally I was frustrated with Boone's character and I would have given him the boot. He seems to constantly urge P.J. into a different 'line of work' for her safety and ignoring P.J.'s to be good at her new found occupation.
I enjoyed the story. I enjoyed the way that Ms. Warren developed the characters. I am looking forward to the next installment of P.J.'s story. I am expecting P.J. to end up with Jeremy. And of course this opens up for another story about Boone and his finding the love of his life. Sounds good to me.
I would give this book 5 stars. And as I said I definately look forward to the next book in the series.
