Darcy is back and finally an LAPD officer! Some new faces, but all my favorites are back. Still the same verb, stepping on toes and doing her own thing. She won’t stop until she solves the mystery. Be prepared to stay up all night cause you won’t be able to put this one down!

I feel like I don't get enough Darcy Walker. Although the time between her books releasing isn't all that long, it feels like it's ages between them. I am so glad this author hasn't given up on Darcy. I love her adventures so much. I don't know if I will ever tire of them.

Like in Darcy's previous encounters, she finds herself in a murder mystery that has her delving into the underbelly of criminals yet again. The difference this time around is she is a police officer. While trying to find her fo

This is the first book in the Darcy Walker Investigations series. Now, it's not the first Darcy Walker book though. Her story starts with Grade A Stupid. She was in high school then. Now, she is all grown up and finally a rookie police officer.

If you're like me, and have been with Darcy since the start, you will love seeing her all grown up. But she's still the same unpredictable Darcy that we have loved for a long time.

She is still a verb! Which I absolutely love.

This story will have you wond

I've read all of A.J. Lape's Darcy Walker series. Why they aren't on the best-seller lists, I don't know. Once again, Darcy doesn't disappoint. As an officer on the LAPD, she's still stumbling onto her crime-solving in her cute, witty, determined, attention-deficit-disordered, sometimes lucky, and most of the time, skillful ways. Lape does everything well with incredible dialogue, phenomenal characters, fast-paced action, an intricate mystery plot, emotional angst, and an awesome sense of humor. ...more

Always a great time when Darcy Walker is involved.

The latest installment of Darcy Walker proves that she is the biggest verb to date. She is a force to be reckoned with. Whether it's while she's in uniform as an LAPD officer or in jeans and a t-shirt, Darcy is always on the case. She doesn't turn her back on her duties, even when they interfere with alone time with her favorite football player. Darcy will take down the corrupt, the lawless, and everyone in between. She has great instincts and a

What's better than a humorous, crime solving Darcy as a night time pizza delivery driver? A grown up Darcy as a rogue L.A.P.D. rookie, that's what!

Darcy Walker is now an official police officer working nights for the L.A.P.D. You would think this would keep her from getting personally involved with murderers and mobsters, but Darcy is a verb that can not be contained. The problem with Darcy is that she struggles to follow rules and after only weeks in her new job she finds herself investigating

Ride or Die: A Crime Fiction Thriller by A.J. Lape

I just love everything about this book. I was a bit nervous how the Darcy Walker of old would grow into an adult, but this transition was seamless. I was also pleased that she brought her amazing cast of supporters with her. I'm not a fan of cliff endings, but I do love that it means there is more Darcy to come.
