It's Double Trouble...With a Contest!!

Welcome to the blog tour for Susan May Warren's latest release, Double Trouble! Take a look at what it is all about and be sure to enter the fantastic contest below.

About Double Trouble:
With one solved case under her belt, PJ Sugar is ready to dive into her career as a private investigator. Or at least a PI's assistant until she can prove herself to Jeremy Kane, her new boss. Suddenly PJ's seeing crime everywhere. But is it just in her head, or can she trust her instincts? When she takes on her first official case--house-sitting for a witness in protective custody--Jeremy assures her there's no danger involved. But it soon becomes clear that there is someone after the witness . . . and now they're after PJ, too.

My thoughts:

Double Trouble is the second book in the PJ Sugar series and it does not disappoint! If you missed the first book (Nothing But Trouble) be sure to grab it too.

Where Nothing But Trouble leads us from PJ's haunted past and into a new life, Double Trouble takes us on the "Ok, I'm not the old me anymore, now what?" journey. Along the pathway PJ wrestles with conflicting feelings about who she really is and struggles with others not letting go of the old PJ.

The big step away from that old troublesome label lit a fire under PJ to conquer the world (or at least the greater Kellogg area) and prove to everyone that she really can be somebody. But true to PJ's passionate nature, she jumps in with both feet and then looks around afterward. She wants to help people, but finds herself hurting everyone she loves and putting her own life in danger. Can she trust her instincts, or is she still just a magnet for disaster? PJ feels like a different person than she was in high school, but maybe all she will ever be is trouble after all.

Sometimes sequels can be read as a stand-alone novel, but I highly recommend reading Nothing But Trouble first to get the full effect. Both are excellent summertime reads...or if you're ready for winter to be over (like I am!) go ahead and dive in and find yourself laying on a warm beach, blanketed by the sun.

Special thanks to LitFuse for providing a copy of Double Trouble for me to read and review!
