When I'm in the mood for a nice fun romance, maybe with just a hint of suspense, Susan May Warren can do no wrong. She has not written a book that I haven't loved. Nothing but Trouble is no exception, and because it has a little Veronica Mars going on, it's especially great!
P.J. Sugar hasn't been back home for ten years. In fact, she's spent the past ten years trying to find herself..doing different things and exploring different areas of the country. But one day her sister calls her and up and says they need her back home. Easy, right? But P.J. left for a reason and going home means facing the betrayal and the person she used to be. Not to mention Boone her ex-boyfriend. Oh and her best friend who was facing a pregnancy scare when she took off...
But the town is more welcoming than P.J. expected and soon she finds herself caring for her nephew and investigating a murder. Can P.J. stay out of trouble long enough to do some good in her hometown? Will she come to terms with who she is and what she's done?
I thought P.J. was an immensely likeable character, and I was definitely rooting for her. I also loved all the humor Susan May Warren wove throughout the book...the typical goofy stuff that makes a book like this enjoyable. I loved watching P.J. come to terms with her past, the people who hurt her, and finding new love for her family.
This is the kind of book you to lose yourself in and enjoy, P.J. becomes a bit of a PI and makes new friends. I have always loved Susan May Warren's writing style...not too flowery, but not at all choppy either, just perfect for moving the story along. Feels really effortless.
One thing I'm excited about is that this is a series...so we get to visit with P.J. again! AND Love triangle! My favorite! So much potential for drama!
I highly recommend this fun book for lovers of Christian fiction romantic suspense, though both the romance and suspense are a bit light!
Read the first chapter of Nothing But Trouble.
