Nothing But Trouble...Review

About the book:
It's not fair to say that trouble happens every time PJ Sugar is around, but it feels that way when she returns to her home town, looking for a fresh start. Within a week, her former teacher is murdered and her best friend's husband is arrested as the number-one suspect. Although the police detective investigating the murder—who also happens to be PJ's former flame—is convinced it's an open-and-shut case, PJ's not so sure. She begins digging for clues in an effort to clear her friend’s husband and ends up reigniting old passions, uncovering an international conspiracy, and solving a murder along the way. She also discovers that maybe God can use a woman who never seems to get it right.

Ten years after leaving it in disgrace, PJ Sugar returns to her hometown to look after her nephew while her sister is on her honeymoon. PJ always had a knack for finding trouble and soon after arriving home, she finds herself knee deep in it again. Her former boyfriend is now a cop and when her best friend's husband is accused of murder, PJ decides that she's going to solve the mystery herself.

The first of the PJ Sugar series, it took me awhile to get into and I found it light on the mystery and suspense, light on the romance and light on the Christian.

Entertaining and easy to read, PJ needs to grow up and find out who she really is. I liked it, I didn't love it. Perfect for a light summer read.

  1. Nice review, Holly! I wish I could be as succinct as you are.

  2. Sounds kind of fun. It might be just what I'm looking for this summer.
