How I hate to see the PJ Sugar series end! It has been a wild and crazy ride from start to finish. I enjoyed getting to know PJ Sugar in the first book of the series Nothing But Trouble and continued to follow her exploits in Double Trouble. I have to say that Licensed for Trouble has to be the absolute best of the three (in my opinion) but I sure hate to say goodbye.

Licensed for Trouble is a fitting conclusion for the series as PJ struggles to overcome her reputation as “Nothing but Trouble”. Once again Susan May Warren has placed PJ in scenarios that are almost too funny to be true but so perfectly fit her character. The continued love triangle with PJ, her old flame Boone, and her boss Jeremy keeps the reader guessing during most of the book. The entrance of another man into the mix with PJ’s new client Max serves to add another dimension to the story. As she endeavors to help Max discover his true identity while he helps renovate her mysterious inheritance, PJ also learns some important things about herself.

Licensed for Trouble is a great summer read with just the right mix of romance, mystery, humor, and faith. If you haven’t read anything written by Susan May Warren, the PJ Sugar series would be a great place to begin. Just be sure to read all of them in sequence for the best experience.

PJ Sugar receives shocking news that she’s inherited the Kellogg family mansion. Though she has no idea why, the timing is perfect-PJ has clearly worn out her welcome at her sister’s house. Unfortunately, the mansion is in shambles, and PJ is short on cash. Rescue comes in the form of Max Smith, a mysterious handyman willing to trade his services for PJ’s investigative skills. But PJ already has a full docket with cramming for her PI license and nurturing a growing romance with her boss, Jeremy Kane. Can she take on Max’s case without dropping the ball?
