"Waiting On" Wednesday - Buzz Kill

"Waiting On"  Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week I'm waiting on...  


Buzz Kill by Beth Fantaskey

* Book will be released May 6, 2014

Check out the description from Barnes & Noble:

"Putting the dead in deadlineTo 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 secretsMillie 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."

This looks like it’ll be an interesting/funny mystery. I like mysteries that aren’t all serious and CSI like so this looks like it could be a great book for me.
