PJ Sugar is out to prove herself as a PI Assistant—one case at a time.

PJ’s boss, Jeremy Kane, has given PJ an official case—but it isn’t near as exciting or dangerous as PJ has hoped. It is simply housesitting for a witness in protective custody. This witness, Dally, is insisting that her life is in danger, and that someone has been stalking her, but Jeremy believes she is over reacting. After all, she has a FBI agent assigned to her case, and Lee assures Jeremy that he is watching Dally’s house and hasn’t seen anything.

Still, Jeremy spirits Dally away, somewhere that Lee isn’t even privy too, and leaves PJ to stay in the house. PJ is thrilled with this time away, hoping that it will help her to decide whether to accept Boone Buckam’s marriage proposal. But it doesn’t take PJ long to discover that Dally isn’t kidding, that someone is stalking her. But who is it? The next door neighbor’s grandson? An irate customer who didn’t appreciate how Dally styled her hair? A former lover? Or is someone trying to silent her before the trial?

DOUBLE TROUBLE is the second book in the PJ Sugar series. I recommend reading Nothing But Trouble before reading DOUBLE TROUBLE, so you have some clues what happened earlier in the book, but I don’t think it would ruin this story any if you read DOUBLE TROUBLE first.

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. And in spite of PJ’s talent for attracting trouble, she is kind and carrying and wouldn’t want to hurt anyone. The book did begin a little slow, but as soon as the true story began, it picked up. Don’t miss DOUBLE TROUBLE or any of Susie’s books. I’m looking forward to reading Licensed for Trouble due out later this year. $13.99. 335 pages.

Double Trouble

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.

Nothing But Trouble

Book 1 of the PJ Sugar Series

PJ Sugar knows three 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.
