Blog Tour: Licensed for Trouble

Thanks to LitFuse Publicity for providing a free review copy of this book. No other compensation was received for this review. The opinions contained herein are my own. I was not required to write a positive review.

Susan May Warren long ago made it to my "favorite authors" list. And after reviewing the PJ Sugar series, PJ (the heroine) is certainly one of my favorite characters.

After reviewing Nothing But Trouble and Double Trouble, I fervently hoped I'd have the chance to review the third book, Licensed for Trouble. I was delighted to be chosen for this book tour, and the story did not disappoint.

The second book in the series leaves PJ after she has made some important discoveries about herself and her faith. Licensed for Trouble picks up pretty much where Double Trouble left off.

This third book is no less entertaining or thought-provoking than the previous two books. PJ remains the funny, danger-prone girl with the penchant for finding mysteries to solve. Mrs. Warren continues to weave in spiritual truths that are profound yet do not seem preachy.

Since Mrs. Warren's series typically only include 3 books, PJ Sugar may be history. I hope not because this series is the kind that could stretch out forever and I would never tire of it. If you can't tell, I wholeheartedly recommend the PJ Sugar series and Mrs. Warren.

ACK!! If you are reviewing books, then I'm indeed in trouble since my first 4 paragraphs have you confused. Maybe I need to go back to making cards..

Hopefully, my writing will improve as I go along, and will be more easily understood when it comes out in book form. tee hee.

(no way in THAT'S gonna happen. My imagination can only carry me so far, then: nothing.)

How DO these women authors keep a storyline going! I'm starting to lose ideas and I'm only on the 12th chapter!!

I introduced the woman, that you'll get to know better, during the first two chapters. The third chapter allowed her to have a "voice".

The woman who is now walking the road in the fourth chapter is being introduced the same way. Third person.

Then she'll get HER voice.

And who is that woman at the fruit stand that gave her a lift!!!! haaaaa! Intrigue!! Why is this particular stranger running? And why did my first character (big hint here) pick her up! Hmmmmmmm
