Waiting on Wednesday #160: Trouble Makes a Comeback by Stephanie Tromly


"Waiting on Wednesday" is a weekly event hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine where we spotlight upcoming releases we are eagerly anticipating. 

Synopsis from Goodreads:

A brilliantly funny romantic comedy - with infectious characters, wry humor, and breakneck dialogue, this sequel to Trouble is a Friend of Mine is perfect for fans of John Green, Jesse Andrews, and Ally Carter.

After a fall semester of fiascos: getting arrested, then kidnapped, then blown up in an explosion (all thanks to the weird, but brilliant Philip Digby), Zoe Webster is looking forward to a quiet spring. Now that Digby has left town, she's finally built a regular high school life for herself. She's dating Miles; she knows girls she considers friends; she's learning to enjoy being normal and semi-popular. Which of course is when Digby comes back: He's got a new lead on his missing sister and he needs Zoe's help. Suddenly Zoe is tussling with a billionaire archvillain, locking horns with armed goons, and digging into what makes the Digby family tick, even as she tries to navigate the confusing and emotionally fraught world of high school politics and locker-room drama. After all, it's hard to explain Digby to a boy like Miles, especially when Zoe isn't sure how she feels about Digby herself - or how he feels about her.

Now that Digby's back, get ready for another hilarious whodunit filled with razor-sharp dialogue, ridiculously funny action, and the most charismatic, dynamic duo you've ever met. And just try to stay out of trouble. We dare you.
 


Why am I waiting on this one? Zoe and Digby are the main reasons why I am waiting on this book. I love the weird chemistry that they have. In book one in the series, Digby comes across as a sort of cross between Sherlock  and Ferris Bueller. I want to see how Digby grows or if he remains the same and why. And I'd like to see Zoe, a relatively new girl in town, succeed at finding a niche for herself in high school. I enjoyed the humor in book one and hope the second book will be just as much fun. You can read a free excerpt of this book on Bustle.com. Expected publication of this book is December 1, 2016 from Hot Key Books.
