Now that the infuriating and irresistible Philip Digby has left town for a lead on his sister who disappeared years ago, Zoe Webster is looking forward to a quiet spring semester. She's dating a cute quarterback, hanging out with new friends, and enjoying being "a normal". Which is of course when Digby comes back. He needs Zoe's help, and not just to find his sister.
When Philip Digby first shows up on her doorstep, Zoe Webster is not impressed. He's rude, and he treats her like a book he's already read and knows the ending to. But before she knows it, Digby - annoying, brilliant, and somehow attractive? - has dragged her into a series of hilarious and dangerous situations all related to an investigation into the kidnapping of a local teenage girl. A kidnapping that may be connected to the tragic disappearance of his own sister eight years ago.
