Nothing But Trouble by Susan May Warren

I am so excited to be a stop today on the Nothing But Trouble Blog tour!

About the book:

Nothing But Trouble.jpg

PJ Sugar Knows 3 things for sure:

  • After traveling the country for ten years hoping to shake free from the trail of disaster that’s become her life, she needs a fresh start.
  • The last person she wants to see when she heads home for her sister’s wedding is Boone—her former flame and the reason she left town.
  • Her best friend’s husband absolutely did not commit the first murder Kellogg, Minnesota, has seen in more than a decade.

What PJ doesn’t know is that when she starts digging for evidence, she’ll uncover much more than she bargained for—a deadly conspiracy, a knack for investigation, and maybe, just maybe, that fresh start she’s been longing for.

It’s not fair to say that trouble happens every time PJ Sugar is around, but it feels that way when she returns to her hometown, looking for a fresh start. Within a week, her former teacher is murdered and her best friend’s husband is arrested as the number-one suspect. Although the police detective investigating the murder–who also happens to be PJ’s former flame–is convinced it’s an open-and-shut case, PJ’s not so sure. She begins digging for clues in an effort to clear her friend’s husband and ends up reigniting old passions, uncovering an international conspiracy, and solving a murder along the way. She also discovers that maybe God can use a woman who never seems to get it right.

Read the first chapter!

I have long enjoyed Susan’s books and this one was no exception!  PJ Sugar is a gal that trouble seems to love to follow.  In fact you could say she is a mess.  And how often do we feel like we are a mess!

She ran away from home only to come back years later at the request of her sister.  The dynamics of the characters in Nothing But Trouble are fascinating.  And real.  From the get go I felt like I understood PJ.  She felt like she messed everything up and she could do nothing right.

PJ is possibly my favorite Susan May Warren character because I could relate to her so well.  The feeling of always trying and no one noticing, and in the end feeling abandoned.  How often does that situation speak to our heart.  Nothing But Trouble is a quick read because you will not want to put it down, and for all the seriousness there is a lot of laughter too!  I cannot wait to see what happens to PJ in the next book, Double Trouble, due out in early 2010!
