Huck gets a chance to talk to his Knight Lights mentor’s brother and it goes better than he could have predicted. Win is interested! But their attempt to become boyfriends hits a snag when Win’s chance at transferring to Hero High is sabotaged. It gets worse when they discover a fake account online under Win’s name that has been posting mean comments about other students. Huck knows Win isn’t responsible for it, but can he prove it? If he’s to crack the case, he will need to channel Sherlock Holmes.

Tiffany Schmidt incorporates Sherlock Holmes’ flare into the Bookish Boyfriends world through Huck being assigned to read the mysteries and his personality reflecting the great detective’s. Huck has an analytical mind, eccentricities in the way his brain works, and an addiction to caffeine that creates a fun new detective. The mystery is set in the modern day, with cyberbullying, sabotage, and scandal mixed against a backdrop of romantic comedy. Huck and Win face hurdles in their attempt to get to know each other, as Huck must dig into his possible boyfriend’s mistakes to find the suspect. Get a Clue is a sweet and charming romantic comedy that pays homage to Sherlock Holmes in a story that everyone needs to brighten their day.
