Review: Double Trouble by Susan May Warren

Double Trouble
Whenever I want to read a fun Christian fiction novel with some humor, heart, and the just the right tone of romance, I turn to Susan May Warren. She is hands down one of my favorite Christian fiction authors for this very reason, I always enjoy her books and the romance! It's always just right, without being ridiculous.

Double Trouble is the second book in the PJ Sugar series. I especially enjoyed this one because I really relate to where PJ is at in life...trying to make a fresh start without having any clue of what that looks like. Unfortunately, I do not relate to having two super hot guys in love with me, but hey that's why we read fiction. In reality, I don't think I'd deal with it all that well. (nor do I think PJ does)

PJ has been back in town for two months after ten years of wandering and she's living with her sister and her sister's Russian in-laws. But what she really wants is to prove herself as a PI. However, she does manage to get herself involved in a few mishaps and Jeremy (her boss and one of the hot guys) decides to give her what he thinks will be a safe assignment for her, impersonating a woman they need to hide. PJ quickly learns it's not all that safe, but she has many fun adventures along the way. Boone, her high school lover, has proposed to her meanwhile and PJ must decide if she loves him enough to commit her life to him.

Like I said, I love the way Susan May Warren writes romance. There's a scene where PJ is watching Roman Holiday and talking on the phone with Jeremy that's just...melt your heart perfect. Needless to say? I'm Team Jeremy.

Double Trouble is a fun book about a woman trying to come to peace with who she is and with her past.

If not Lenore did say "We've got to find a way to get two hot guys to fall in love with you :)

I'll need to check her out. I shied away from a lot of Christian fiction during my first ten years of faith, due to reading a few pretty awful books when I first became a Christian. But I've found several lately that are really good -- and this one sounds fun, too! :)
