About the Book:

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. 


My Rating & Thoughts:    

PJ is now in working with Jeremy, training to become a private investigator and ends up being a stand-in for someone who is in the witness protection program as they get ready to testify at trial. I didn’t completely understand why PJ was put in such a dangerous position, but this circumstance introduced us to some wonderful characters and added elements of danger and amusement to the story. I fell in love with the PJ’s new neighbour Gabby, for being an eighty-year-old woman she was a wonderful watch dog for PJ. The mystery did keep me trying to figure out who the bad guy was and questioning if we had even met them yet.

On the character relationship side there is a love triangle happening and PJ needs to decide if she is going to go with the comfortable and familiar relationship of her high school boyfriend or does she have feelings she wants to explore for the new guy in her life. By the end of the book PJ makes her decision. I am not a fan of love triangle’s, and I wasn’t a fan of one of these guys, so the fact that it took PJ quite a while to decide annoyed me. Thankfully she went with the guy I liked.

PJ is relatable as a character as she tries hard to do the right thing but stumbles at times. She is not perfect and makes mistakes.

This book falls into the cozy mystery category as there is a little bit of romance and a little bit of suspense with quirky characters throughout.
