"The author bounces her characters off one another in spectacular ways, crafting drama, suspense, love, and exasperation with ease. . . . Readers will surely want to join Digby and Zoe for another round."—Kirkus
"Tromly excels at oddball character chemistry as well as crackling dialogue. . . . This zany sequel has everything to make fans of the first outing swoon."—Booklist Online
"This over-the-top series that mixes fantastical schemes, a dash of romance, and two quirky characters will leave readers rolling their eyes at the silliness of it all while simultaneously falling in love with and cheering for the protagonists."—SLJ Online
Praise for Trouble Is a Friend of Mine:
• Publishers Weekly Best Book of the Year
"In what reads like a combination of Veronica Mars and The Breakfast Club, debut author Tromly creates a screwball mystery with powerful crossover appeal."—Publishers Weekly, starred review
"This is one of those rare books that promises something unique and actually delivers beyond expectation. At least one copy belongs in every young adult collection—maybe even two or three. Once the word gets out, this book will fly off the shelves."—VOYA, starred review
"Fast-talking, suit-wearing Digby is an exasperating teenage Sherlock—sharply observant, impatient with social niceties, and unafraid of authority figures. . . . Fans of Veronica Mars and Elementary will find much to like here . . . Zoe's sarcastic first-person narration is fresh and funny . . . an offbeat and entertaining caper."—Kirkus
"An engrossing and satisfying read . . . Hand this one out along with a Chandler or Hammett classic and the first season of Veronica Mars."—BCCB, starred review
"A fast-paced story. . . . Readers will find a sharply drawn character in the irrepressible Zoe, who's as dubious about Digby's methods as she is curious about whether or not she can live up to his daredevilry."—SLJ
"With acerbic banter and a healthy dose of high-school high jinks, screenwriter Tromly weaves together traditional elements of teen stories to create a Breakfast Club for a new century."—Booklist

The book opens five months after the events of the first. Digby has been out of touch while Zoe has worked her way up the social ladder and has become .. normal. She even has a boyfriend.
Then Digby reappears. The lively dialogue picks right up and Zoe has a great narrative voice. The case is reliably Veronica Mars-esque and the ending is fun -- with the promise of a great sequel.
What happens when Digby comes back after Zoe's world suddenly turned upside down?
I guess you'll have to read the book to find out.
Here's the thing, unbelievable stuff still happens but the sarcastic humor is still there.
I think I'm coming back for more of those.
I really miss the partnership between Digby and Zoe, so I was really happy with this one.
I just wished the publisher didn't change the cover.

I didn't expect to like the first book in this series as I did. So I was pretty psyched to get a hold of the second installment.Read more
