Read an Excerpt

“So this is what closure feels like,” Digby says.

We’re standing on the grassy patch where his little sister, Sally, was buried nine years ago.

“Closure sucks,” Digby says. “Now what?”

He isn’t asking for suggestions. He is telling me something I already know. The search for the truth about what happened to his sister after her kidnapping had been the basis of so many of our arguments, so much of the hurt we’d dealt other people, all the times we’d broken the law, all the times we’d broken our bodies. I’d gone along because . . . Digby. He needed to find Sally. But now, for the first time in a long time, Digby doesn’t have an angle to play. He doesn’t have his next move planned.

“What did I expect, right? It’s like they say. The truth is almost always disappointing.” Digby turns to me. “But . . . now what? Other than me, talking in clichés.”

I watch him wrestle with his paralysis and I think about how different my priorities have become since I met Digby eight months ago. I’d first arrived in River Heights wanting nothing more than to make some friends and have some normal high school fun.

And I did that. I made friends. I even had a boyfriend. But I blew all that up because . . . Digby. And now, with a trail of bad blood and narrowly avoided felony charges behind me, I perversely find myself dreading the end of the crazy.

Because it really does look like it is game over. Sally Digby is dead.

I know it’s selfish to wonder, but what does this mean for Digby and me? As a wise woman once said, relationships that start under intense circumstances never last.

“This isn’t the time to think about what’s next,” I say, putting the shovel back in his hand. “Now we keep digging.”

We are about to get going again when a pair of flashlight beams comes out of the main house’s back door and bobs toward us.

“Do we run?” I say. The anguish on Digby’s face makes me wonder if he can survive a late-in-the-game plot twist.

But, as usual, I’m starting at the end.

So here it is. One last time, from the top. Meaning, we have to go back to the night of Kyle Mesmer’s lake house party.

The trouble never ends as Zoe is once again pulled into Digby's shenanigans. The banters between them were still the highlights in the novel. This was a fun book to read especially with all the references to the media from Taylor Swift to Riverdale, etc. Furthermore, Trouble Never Sleeps is something I would recommend if you need a good laugh. I guess my biggest gripe (hence I had to deduct a star) was the fact that Digby seemed OOC sometimes and how the conflict in this series was conveniently solved. The adults were ridiculous and the struggles were almost nonexistent. All in all, while I did enjoy reading the novel, it doesn't feel like it's over. *Huge thanks to the publisher for sending me an arc of this book in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts are my own.*

3.5 stars This series has been weird for me. I didn’t care for the first one, but I liked the other two. I think I would enjoy them a lot more if I ever binged them because I went into this one with absolutely no idea wtf was going on. The relationship between Zoe and Digby is what kept me reading. I’m amused at their push and pull and odd dynamic that seems to really work for them. I still loved Sloane and their other friends, but the strangeness of it all is what I enjoyed. Plot wise, it was fast paced from the beginning and didn’t stop. The ending was intriguing and satisfying and maddening all at the same time. It doesn’t feel like it’s over and if there’s another book, I’ll be reading. **Huge thanks to Kathy Dawson Books for providing the arc free of charge**
