Format: Paperback
Darcy is about to go on vacation with the Taylor's to Orlando. So what does Darcy do? She watches the newspapers to see if anything is happening down there. Well there is. A little boy named Cisco Medina was kidnapped and they have no leads. Darcy being the type of girl she is, is determined to find the little boy. All the while she has to lie and sneak around Dylan and dodged the advances of Kyd who lives next door. Darcy doesn't think it will be easy but she doesn't think it will be all bad. Well Darcy's middle name is trouble (it's really Winston) and before she knows it, she is crashing through windows and fighting off bad guys. Welcome to Darcyville.

Darcy Walker is Nothing but Verb and it's about to get her into trouble...again.

Holy Crap!!! This book was good. I can never get enough of Darcy. She is always getting into trouble and you always know it's going to be big. Darcy doesn't do small. So here she is trying to solve another case while trying to stay alive.....again. You'd think a girl would learn but not Darcy. She is one heck of a chick. I would've peed my pants with some of the situations she gets herself into. She keeps me on my toes and that's the fun part. I loved every minute of this book!!!! Seriously, people you need Darcy Walker in your lives. You have no idea what you are missing. You have teenage angst, murder mysteries, kidnap victims, and so so much more packed into on awesome sized book. I'm not going to be a blabber mouth and give you all the deets because then you'd know what's going to happen and where is the fun in that??? One more thing before I go. WHAT WERE YOU THINKING AJ, WITH AN ENDING LIKE THAT?!?!?!? Do you like to torture me? Because that's what you are doing.

"This book left me wanting so much more! Darcy never fails to make me laugh, want to cry at times and leave me completely mesmerized! Dylan and Darcy's relationships leaves me wanting to strangle both of them and push them together all at once! I read this book in a days time. I could not put it down! I fell in love with the characters in the first book and fell even harder in this one! I love going to Darcyville and am so ready for my next vacation/investigation or whatever you want to call it there!! Love it!!!"

Review by The a club

It's vacation time. Darcy is leaving for two weeks to Florida with Dylan's family before school starts. Already Darcy is looking for something to do because let's face it, it's been a while since the last incident that ended with a school shooting and the killer of the dumpster murders caught. Finding a boy had been kidnapped months before she decides maybe it's time to do some research and see if she can find anything out to help.

During this story, I seriously wonder how Darcy does it. Somehow she gets info that just about any normal person wouldn't be able to get. She has a keen eye for observation, smart mind that constantly runs info, and the innocent persona that keeps people from seeing her as a threat. She manages to dig deep into a web of lies and deceit to find the little boy kidnapped while also putting herself in danger in more ways than one. I'm surprised she hasn't been injured seriously yet.

Her relationship with Dylan always has me confused also. I find him to be a jerk of epic proportions constantly stringing her along. Not in a I want you, just kidding way but in a nobody-can-have-you-but-me but anyone-can-have-me-but-you. I also believe he wants her but is too afraid to tell her this. Everyone sees it but I wonder if she will give him the chance when that time comes.

Her wit, excuses, and sarcasm are entertaining to say the least and have me laughing. I can't wait to read what happens next. The author definitely takes the Nancy Drew stories and gives them a funny twist.

I'm a glutton for punishment it seems. It took me a little time to get into this but I finally did. The writing is good but the way these kids talk sometimes is confusing. And Darcy comes across as smart sometimes and incredibly stupid at others....or clueless.

In this one she decides that rather than enjoy a lovely vacation in Florida hobnobbing with the wealthy and flirting with the cute guys she is surrounded by, she decides she is going to solve a missing persons case. A fifteen year old girl with no self preservation who also manages to rope in others into her insanity. As what generally happens, she kinds of stumbles onto things that lands her into hot water. And if that doesn't happen, she purposely walks into dangerous situations. Her excuse? She's just wired that way. How she manages to survive is anyone's guess, but our Darcy does manage to scrape by with her life intact.

Then there is Dylan. I'm with Sydney. It is so obvious but these two just keep circling around the wagon. They fear losing each other and yet they just can't seem to face the reality that they feel more than friendship for the other. And the way they talk and act with each other is just too intimate for teenagers who are that dense.

So at the end, although I'll definitely read the rest of the series, I feel like a glutton for punishment. These teens are driving me absolutely crazy with their actions and inaction. I just find it incredulous that someone hasn't been seriously hurt before the end of this book.
