Licensed for Trouble

No, I'm not talking about my Beloved. He's not licensed and that IS the trouble.  No, I'm talking about Susan May Warren's latest PJ Sugar novel, Licensed For Trouble....bless her heart....the third installment in the PJ Sugar series

If you have already read the first two books of the series--yippee! the next one's out. If you haven't, I suggest you start with book one and progress through them sequentially. (Yippee! You don't have to wait for the next installment!) I've read them all and I still had a little trouble remembering things. Which is WAY better than rehashing. I'm not saying anything related to that. And I know that the books are technically stand alone plots. (Each mystery is solved in each book. Most social issues are resolved in each book. But it's still nice to know the history if you're gonna read a character that does have a backstory written down.)

Anyway, this is a super-fun series without being super fluff. And I think there's a very good chance that each book is better than the one before it. But maybe that's just because you grow to really appreciate the characters and all of their faults. And maybe the realization that you can grow beyond "trouble." (At least I hope so!)

A bit about the book:

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?
Find out more about book one, Nothing But Trouble and book two, Double Trouble.
