Waiting on Wednesday #89: Trouble is a Friend of Mine 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. 

Expected publication: August 4, 2015
 by Kathy Dawson Books
Synopsis from the publisher: 

Sherlock meets Veronica Mars meets Ferris Bueller's Day Off in this story of a wisecracking girl who meets a weird but brilliant boy and their roller-coaster of a semester that's one part awkward, three parts thrilling, and five parts awesome

When Philip Digby first shows up on her doorstep, Zoe Webster is not impressed. He's rude and he treats her like a book he's already read and knows the ending to. But before she knows it, Digby--annoying, brilliant and somehow attractive?--has dragged her into a series of hilarious and dangerous situations all related to an investigation into the kidnapping of a local teenage girl. A kidnapping that may be connected to the tragic disappearance of his own sister eight years ago.

When it comes to Digby, Zoe just can't say no. Digby gets her, even though she barely gets herself. But is Digby a hero, or is his manic quest an indication of a desperate attempt to repair his broken family and exercise his own obsessive-compulsive tendencies? 

A romance where the leading man is decidedly unromantic, a crime novel where catching the crook isn't the only hook, a friendship story where they aren't even sure they like each other--this is a contemporary debut with razor-sharp dialogue, ridiculously funny action, and the most charismatic dynamic duo you've ever met. 

Why am I waiting on this one? 
I like the way it suggests it's like Sherlock meets Veronica Mars meets Ferris Bueller's Day Off. And, I like books where there is humor and this promises to be one of them. 

What book are you waiting on this week? Share it or a link in the comments so we can check it out. Happy Reading!


  1. Love the sound of this. And thanks for stopping by The YA Club. :)

  2. That teaser with the various TV shows would get me as well. Well, really, all you had to say was Veronica Mars. I miss Veronica. :-)

  3. Great pick!
