“Okay–gotta go.” Digby grabbed his tray and got up.
“Where are you going?”
“Take care of some business. I’ll pick you up at your place.”
“I’m not going with you,” I said.
“Okay, great, see you at eight,” he said.
Stephanie Tromly’s Trouble Is a Friend of Mine is a fun novel with a lot of humor and a storyline that had me staying up far too late to finish. This 56 probably isn’t the best excerpt, but it does represent rather well, the relationship between Zoe and Digby. Digby comes up with ideas that have Zoe convinced he’s crazy, but knowing her far too well, Digby is always sure she’ll come along. He’s always right. I’m also happy to say that I just found out that this one will not be a standalone as was originally planned, so more adventures with Digby are on the way!
From my review:
“For Zoe Webster, having her parents divorce means moving to a small city in New York, to a new school she can’t wait to leave. River Heights has been in an uproar for months following the vanishing of Marina Miller, a wealthy teenage girl. When Philip Digby shows up at Zoe’s door, she isn’t sure what to make of him, but before she knows it, she’s joined him on a quest to discover the truth about what happened to Marina. As crazy as Digby’s shenanigans are, he may very well be on to something and Zoe finds herself taking dangerous risks as the two of them dive deeper into the mystery of Marina’s disappearance, but when they accidentally stumble upon dangerous criminal activity, both may be in way over their heads.” You can read my full review here.
