Darcy’s summer break brings more of the same crazy. Can she solve a kidnapping case that’s been dead for six months?
Two weeks before junior year, Darcy Walker hops a plane to Florida for a little R&R with her best friend, Dylan Taylor, and his family. Even before her feet hit Orlando soil, the disappearance of a five-year-old boy catches her in its snare. Convinced she can bring him home, she joins forces with a local reporter, but they soon discover those closest to the boy are hiding something.
With Darcy’s inner-verb in beast mode, she’s determined to ferret out the lies, but the more she follows the clues, the more secrets she uncovers. Add a separate murder investigation, a severed head, and a mysterious businessman who seems to know everything, and it’s one too many mysteries to unravel. Thing is, as the cloak-and-dagger heats up, Darcy’s shocked to find Dylan and their boiling flirtationship just might hold more secrets than anything.
As confusion charges from all angles, can she sort things out or will she drown in the sea of lies?
NO BRAINER is the second novel in the Darcy Walker Mystery Series, high school years. If you enjoy laugh-out-loud humor, nail-biting suspense, with a touch of are-they-or-aren’t-they romance, then you’ll love A.J. Lape’s story.
