Kade Boehme's Latest Is Definitely a Hit

I remember reading Kade Boehme's Don't Trust the Cut and thinking, wow, I hope this guy keeps writing.

It's so nice to get my wish fulfilled.  Trouble and the Wallflower may have an incredibly dorky title, but it's an excellent novel about a shy college student raised by an agoraphobic mother and what may seem his polar opposite: a brash, outgoing student who's one of the moving forces in his posse.

What I like best about Boehme's books is that not only are the central characters interesting and alive, but the supporting characters are too.  There's a very minor character in Trouble in particular whom I absolutely loved--the older woman who hung around with the brash guy's grandfather and his poker cronies.  She was almost a nothing in the story, but is the epitome of what Boehme does well.  She was delightful in the story and very memorable afterward.

I feel like Boehme is on a roll now and I can't wait to read what he comes up with next.
