Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking The Spine.
My pick of the week is...
Buzz Kill by Beth Fantaskey
In this fresh and funny teen mystery, seventeen-year-old Millie joins forces with her classmate, gorgeous but mysterious Chase Albright, to try to find out who murdered Coach Killdare.
Putting the dead in deadline
To Bee or not to Bee? When the widely disliked Honeywell Stingers football coach is found murdered, 17-year-old Millie is determined to investigate. She is chasing a lead for the school newspaper - and looking to clear her father, the assistant coach, and prime suspect.
Millie's partner is gorgeous, smart-and keeping secrets
Millie joins forces with her mysterious classmate Chase who seems to want to help her even while covering up secrets of his own.
She's starting to get a reputation…without any of the benefits.
Drama-and bodies-pile up around Millie and she chases clues, snuggles Baxter the so-ugly-he's-adorable bassett hound, and storms out of the world's most awkward school dance/memorial mash-up. At least she gets to eat a lot of pie.
Best-selling author Beth Fantaskey's funny, fast-paced blend of Clueless and Nancy Drew is a suspenseful page-turner that is the best time a reader can have with buried weapons, chicken clocks, and a boy who only watches gloomy movies…but somehow makes Millie smile. Bee-lieve it.
Pair with Fantaskey's best-selling Jessica's Guide to Dating on the Dark Side.
~*~Why I Am Waiting~*~
I don't know about any of you, but Fantaskey's Jessica series, mentioned above at the end of the synopsis for BUZZ KILL, was a series I actually grew up with. I adored her humor and writing, so I was very excited to see that she was coming out with a new novel. Plus, it's a murder mystery. Who doesn't love a good murder mystery?
