Waiting on Wednesday: Trouble Makes a Comeback by Stephanie Tromly

WoW is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine in which we share the titles we can't wait to release.

Trouble Makes a Comeback by Stephanie Tromly. 366 p. Kathy Dawson Books, November 22, 2016. 

Publisher synopsis: A whip-smart, screwball noir myster-with snappy prose, wry humor, and breakneck dialogue-this sequel to Trouble is a Friends of Mine is perfect for fans of Veronica Mars, Sherlock, John Hughes and Carl. Hiassen.

After a fall semester of fiascos: getting arrested, then kidnapped, then blown up in an explosion (all thanks to the weird by brillian Philip Digby), Zoe Webster if looking forwad to a quiet spring. Now that Digby has left town, she's finally build a regular high school life for herself. She's dating Miles, the alternate QB; she knows tirls 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 arch-villain, 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.

I learned about this a few weeks ago when the author posted a link to this tweet on FB. Trouble is a Friend of Mine is yet another book I read, I loved, I booktalked like crazy (and it circulated like crazy) and never reviewed! I did feature it in a Friday Meme post - twice, it seems.
