MAN, that was super satisfying. I don't think anything will ever live up to the perfection of the first book, but Trouble Never Sleeps certainly gave the Trouble trilogy a high note to go out on. I'm gonna miss the ragtag River Heights crew! Full review to come closer to release.

I need this immediately, but I'll settle for April. Zoe & Digby are the best slow ship of all time, fight me.

**I interviewed Zoe and Digby for the blog tour. Check out the hilarious interview where Digby just shows up out of nowhere (and completely surprises Zoe) here.

This book was as messy, wild, emotional, and laugh out loud funny as I wanted it to be. The pop culture banter, crazy circumstances, and unpredictability of it all makes this the perfect conclusion to the series. But, like, possibly not conclusion? The ending has a couple of loose threads that make me think the author is leaving a door open but it could also for sure be the end. I always want more when it comes to Digby and Zoe and the rest of the cast (I adore them all—even Sloane, who I never ...more

A really fun series, but I think my reading preferences have changed since I started it years ago.

TOTAL READING TIME: 2 hours, 59 minutes.

I looooved the first two books of this trilogy, Trouble is a Friend of Mine especially. I just wanted Zoe and Digby to get to the bottom of Sally Digby's disappearance 9 years before the events of the books, and I was so excited when the last book was finally announced.

Me not enjoying this book as much as I hoped is definitely partly my fault. I read the second book Trouble Makes a Comeback in August 2017 exactly two years ago, so I've forgotten almost

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.

Rating: 4.5 Stars

I am so glad I finally read this series, because Digby and Zoe were a fantastic duo, and I enjoyed getting to know them. I wanted to give Tromly a hug, because I was really happy with the way she wrapped up the mystery of Digby's sister. As always, it was a fun journey with Zoe and Digby. There are multiple side conflicts cooking in the background as Digby and Zoe continue their search for Sally, and I was happy with the way Tromly wrapped those up. Digby's little romantic

The Trouble squad is back for one last adventure as the quest for answers about Digby's sister comes to a close, and Zoe wonders what her acceptance into Prentiss means for the future of her relationship with Digby. Overall, the Trouble series is full of endless fun and entertainment, and scratches that itch for Nancy Drewesque stories. While it didn't quite live up to my expectations, it still had some laugh-out-loud moments that I've come

When we walked in, mom said, "Hello, Digby. Welcome to dinner. I made your favorite." She waved at the dining table. "Food."

If you are anything like me and you've been in love with this series and have been dying for this last instalment to hit (your) shelf, then I have one (crucial) recommendation to make/propose: Take the time to re-read the previous two books right before you dive into this one. This has several

Trouble Never Sleeps is a ludicrous conclusion to an outrageous thrilling series, right now I couldn’t ask for anything better except I wouldn’t mind reading more from Planet Digby.

I enjoyed Trouble is a Friend of Mine so much, it pains me to say goodbye to this eccentric gang. Tromly didn’t let the readers down as she incorporated her classic flair for dramatics, controversial take on hot-topic issues, and outrageous sense of humor. It’s nice to see the whole gang Henry, Sloane, Felix join Zoe

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.

I loved loved loved loved loved this book and this series in general. It was funny, it was about friendship, love, life, family it was about anything. It was like Harry Potter just not in a wizard world. Just loved everyone and everything about

Book three starts right where book two ended. I mean, exactly where it ended. Same night, same situation. You really need to read the entire trilogy in order to understand this series because there is one overarching mystery that runs through all the books and it is finally solved in this concluding volume. If you enjoyed the first two books then you will enjoy this one just as much. It has all the humour and snark that I expected and a fast paced story line. This was a super fun quick read! I ...more

Aw, man! Stupid me finished the book and thought "Oh joy! There will be more books!" Only to come onto Goodreads and see that this is the conclusion to the trilogy (and, yes, I know that is in the synopsis. As a rule I never read the synopsis of a book right before reading. There be spoilers!). Anyway, now I'm sad because this is the end of the series and I still have questions, but I enjoyed this series immensely. This is one of the very few mystery series that actually made me laugh-out-loud. ...more

I will miss Philip Digby so much! <3 Sigh. This was a much slower read for me, compared to the first two--I basically inhaled those books in a few days. Closure is good, though. Everything and everyone has toned down a lot in the final book. Looking forward to more of Stephanie Tromly's work, that's for sure. :)
I feel like my review for this book should really just be 100 love heart emojis because that's how I feel right now. Seriously, I could not have pictured a better end to this series. Just read these books everyone!

It has become quite a tradition for me to listen to Trouble series audiobook. I've become a huge fan of the narrator Kathleen McInerney, she really captured what I imagined Zoe's dry wit. I'm so sad to see this series ending, but I'm glad it was a satisfying conclusion to a hysterical saga.

Overall, the plot lacks the usual comical luster that's why it was a 4-star review; however, the romance really took off. As usual readers could expect entertaining drama from Planet Digby. I can't wait to

The ending was kinda unsatisfying but maybe I just expect to much. Still a good end to the series tho.
I loved it! The third book has the charm, wit, fast-paced, and humor of the first book. It has a satisfying resolution.

I loved the first two books of the Trouble series, and I was so excited when the third book was announced! Book two ended in a bit of a cliffhanger, so it was nice to have the closure we've (including the characters) been looking for, for so long.

The gang is back to their antics in this book. They've grown so much since the first book that I cried a little :'). It's always nice to see your favorite characters again, and really, they are out in full form. Clever Digby,

I picked Trouble Is a Friend of Mine three years ago not knowing how hooked I would be to this series. It has been a long wait. Always anticipating for the next book. But now it is over. I getting depressed now lol.
Trouble Never Sleeps is a great finish to this book. However, it was mostly centered on Zoe and Digby. I miss the crew. Sloane, Felix, Henry, etc weren't really in this book as much. Honestly, I didn't love how Zoe and Digby were trying to figure out their relationship. And Digby

I love my OTP but I just don't feel like this was the conclusion this series deserved? The mystery wasn't as strong and didn't come into play until about 50% through the book. The ending was incredibly rushed and implausible and I still had a lot of questions. Don't get me wrong, this book is still worth the read for fans and I still adore this series but this was not the ending I wanted or needed. Also why was there not more kissing?

Loved this trilogy! Tromly did an amazing job at capturing these characters' voices and personalities. This is one of the few trilogies that had actually been successful all the way through. Excellent read!
Overall I rather enjoyed this series. I am bummed a bit with the ending - not enough to take away a star, but I was close. Really, it was a good over arcing mystery with just enough romance thrown in. I would be beyond happy if she continues writing this group of characters!

Unlike the rest of the books in this series, this started off slow until after the 50% mark. The characters repeatedly fought over the same thing for the first half which frustrated me. For example, Zoe gets accepted into the prestigious Prentiss high school, she says she doesn't know if she's going to attend it, and every single person replies, "Of course you're going." That was redundant and after the 12th or so time it got annoying. All of the useless and childish arguing (especially between ...more
