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.

I’m really glad I read the first two PJ Sugar books back-to-back. PJ’s story isn’t limited to standalone adventures – having the momentum that comes from reading her first two adventures back-to-back, it’s easy to see Warren’s superb characterization. The spiritual truths resonate because Warren’s characters are so wonderfully, achingly well-drawn and relatable. I also loved how Warren explores the idea of choosing between good and better throughout the book. Through PJ’s character, Warren forces readers to confront the issue of trusting God – not settling for the good, but daring to dream and reach for an as-yet unknown future that He’ll walk one through each step of the way, if only we’ll invite Him on the journey. Double Trouble contains all of the elements that made PJ’s first adventure a success – snappy dialogue, well-drawn characters, and a page-turning plot. It ups the ante with more intense action, a better mystery, and a compelling spiritual thread that, if you let it, will encourage and inspire you to embrace God’s grace and provision. I can’t wait for book three!
Melody at Kids, Cakes, Dishes, Laundry…In That Order
The story is filled with all the things I loved about the first book... Romance, mystery, and lots and lots of laugh-out-loud humor make this yet another of my favorite Susan May Warren books. It's a fun and entertaining read that holds your attention and leaves you wanting more.
As soon as I started reading this book, I found myself doubled over in laughter. The first few chapters had me wiping tears from my eyes as I met the heroine in this story, PJ Sugar. She is flawed, fearless, confident, desires success, and the queen of wit. I love this character, love her humor even more, and enjoyed watching her battle the bad guys, with donut holes even! HA! This is one book you will need to read, especially if joy is missing from your life and you find yourself wanting to cheer on an unlikely heroine.
Kathryn at Home Spun Soul
An easy read, but definitely kept you thinking. I don't usually like mystery books, but this one was sort of mystery light and even I could think up a few outcomes that were valid, although Susan completely surprised me by the ending. Very good. I liked it. It also seemed that Susan had a realistic balance of God and life. I'm a pastors wife and some of the Christian fiction can go a bit heavy, even for me. I felt it was a good book to give to a searching friend.
Leticia at My Daily Trek
This book had me guessing until the very end on who the villain was. This book was funny, had drama, action and even in somewhere in the middle a cool grandma with a lot of spunk. Okay, okay, enough said I want you all to read this book and enjoy it as much I did. I am looking forward to the next installment. No pressure on you Susan.
Elizabeth at Texas Joy
PJ Sugar is a girl so many of us can identify. She desperately wants to find something she’s good at and to chart the course of her life. Great, fun series by one of my absolute favorite Christian authors!
Laura at Lighthouse Academy
PJ Sugar is a realistic heroine, struggling with past demons, and trying to make sense out of her life and figure out who she is. I had to admire the way PJ’s mind works and her quick thinking when danger comes calling.
Kaylea at My Scrappy Life
I really like the PJ Sugar series. Warren has created a fun, true to life character in PJ Sugar (but two novels in we still don't know what PJ stands for...). PJ is smart, she takes risks and above all, she is trying to live her faith in an authentic way.
Julie at The Surrendered Scribe
I loved this book. Susan May Warren is so effective at weaving a wonderful engaging story that sheds light on the message God has for our hearts. We're trouble, too. I goof up, mess up, trip, stumble and fall often. Double Trouble reminds me that God's not looking for perfection, He's looking for willing. He'll do the rest. Double Trouble offers action, suspense, humor, romance, and a great use of movie trivia to bring characters together. I can't wait for the next book.
