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.
2010 Carol Award Finalist!
What readers are saying:
Oh! My! Goodness! I LOVED this book! I haven't read one that I enjoyed so much in a long time. This was my first experience with Susan May Warren and I will definitely be looking for more of her books.
I loved the humor. Loved the tension between Boone and PJ - and the complication added by Jeremy. Loved the way the author showed PJ's internal struggles and how she finally figured out that she didn't have to be someone else to be used of God.
This is a great story! I highly recommend it. Five stars all the way! ~ L.B. Amazon.com reviewer
Oh my goodness, this was an adorable book! I instantly fell in love with the characters, especially PJ Sugar and Boone. I could relate with all the characters but I felt a connection strongly with PJ. When I can feel a connection with a character, it is sure to be a wonderful book in my opinion, and NBT did not disappoint!
Susan May Warren's talent is that of humor mixed with God and mystery. I love it! The creation of PJ Sugar novel number 1, Nothing But Trouble, is amazing. Warren brings real-to-life situations into a humorous story of a hometown girl that has a bad reputation for getting into trouble. Her characters are beautifully woven together in a fantastically mysterious plot and become your friends for life and feel so real like you could reach out and hug them or shake their hands. When PJ had to return to the town that knows her for nothing but trouble, I knew the fun was about to begin and read and read read, til I got to the end of the book,about 2 and half hours later! I felt like I was truly PJ, aka NBT (Nothing But Trouble) and was the sassy, protagonist whose life was a chaotic one while trying to take care of a 4 yr old nephew and figure out what the heck is going on in this town! Whew! I can't wait to dive into PJ's continuing story in book 2, Double Trouble!
If you are looking for a fast, easy read with God, love and humor then I highly recommend you grab a copy of this really cool 5 star worthy book from Susan May Warren! Great job. ~ Molly, Amazon.com reviewer
Behind the Pages:
Sometimes, do you feel like you just don’t fit in? You look around you and if anyone knew how difficult it was just to put yourself together, to smile when you feel completely overwhelmed, to even figure out what you were making for supper, they’d know what a mess you were. Maybe you totally relate to those words in 1 Peter – God’s elect, strangers and aliens in the world. Do you feel like when you look in the rear view mirror, all you see are your mistakes?
Maybe not. But if so, thven PJ is your gal. I wanted to write a story about the person in so many of us who just wants to get it right…but can’t seem to stay out of trouble. My friend and I have what we call the “stupid mouth” club…and we report our weekly foibles
(usually on Monday, after Sunday church!). PJ is our charter member. She’s the girl that changes her mind, always hopes for the best, is always discovering that she is just a little different than everyone else. PJ is us.
And that’s good news. Because God loves PJ. He loves her messiness, and her impulsiveness, her heart bent toward others, the hope that fuels her actions. And He has a plan for PJ – one that includes her weaknesses as well as her strengths.
Yep, I need to hear that – need to hear that I don’t have to be perfect for God to love me, use me, sing over me. Need to hear that although I don’t fit in, well, I’m not supposed to…in fact, I’m supposed to be a little…alien.
So, to all the PJs out there – and anyone who knows a PJ -- this book is for you. Thank you for reading PJ’s adventures – I hope you come back for her continuing craziness with Boone, and Jeremy and her PI dreams, in the next book: Double Trouble. And meanwhile, may you live with joy on the outside the unique and delightful person God has created on the inside.
In His Grace,
Susan May Warren
