Licensed for Trouble

A review of Licensed for Trouble (PJ Sugar) by Susan May Warren:

 I loved this book! I pretty much read it in one day. At one time, that wouldn't have sounded hard. Now I work full time, have two babies under2 and cook mostly from scratch. That doesn't leave a whole lot of time for reading any more. However, I just took time to read this book. Just ask my husband, I was about worthless for one day.

I thought this book was so fun and PJ Sugar is a great character. She's not perfect and everything is not wrapped into a neat little ball. However, I also love the fact that it is not so "real" that there isn't room for a little "fairy tale magic." (HELLO?! Way cool inheritance out of the blue! Fun!) I didn't think that I had read any of these but after I got into it I am pretty sure I read Nothing but Trouble (PJ Sugar Series #1). Anyway, don't let that stop you. I went out and reserved the first two at the library right after reading this and am reading them now. Enjoy! I sure did. Oh, and check out the very cool give away at the bottom of the post!

Thank you to Litfuse Group for a copy of this book to review.
