Summary (From LitFuse):

PJ Sugar receives shocking news that she's inherited the Kellogg family mansion. Though she has no idea why, the timing is perfect-PJ has clearly worn out her welcome at her sister's house. Unfortunately, the mansion is in shambles, and PJ is short on cash. Rescue comes in the form of Max Smith, a mysterious handyman willing to trade his services for PJ's investigative skills. But PJ already has a full docket with cramming for her PI license and nurturing a growing romance with her boss, Jeremy Kane. Can she take on Max's case without dropping the ball?

My Two Cents:

I was absolutely pleasantly surprised and enchanted with this book. I don't know what I was expecting, but I just adored this book.

PJ is one of my favorite characters in a long time. She's fun, smart, and sassy, and she has just enough flaws to make her realistic. I loved that she somehow always manages to get herself into trouble, but there's always someone to help her out of the problem. Sure, that may not be absolutely "real life" (Honestly, how many times do people fall into a river and have a friend who just happens to be driving by just in time to save them?), but I liked that little detail.

I've not read any of the other PJ Sugar books, so it took me a little bit to get into all the back story, but I understood what was going on just fine without knowing any of that. So, if you haven't read the first two PJ Sugars, you can still read this one, but just because these are so much fun, I'd recommend reading the first two! :)

This was a nice, clean, quick read that I would recommend to anyone looking for a little fun mixed in with a tad bit of mystery.
