Jon Bradshaw needs a girlfriend stat. When he convinces Darcy Walker to be his wingman at a speed-dating event, one debacle leads to another, and before you know it, they’re the proud new owners of a dead body. Problem is, the body has a tie to Darcy…making her a person of interest in a murder.
Things quickly jump from bad to worse when someone hijacks the name of Darcy’s alter ego, framing “Jester” in a Hitchcock-like blend of crimes that leaves her head spinning.
In FOOLPROOF, Darcy battles an adversary who tests her IQ while she navigates the daunting worries of a high school senior. Add on the emotional fallout of her latest caper, a cop breathing down her neck, and a hot but stubborn boyfriend, and she’s at her wit’s end.
Can she find her zen and unmask the real murderer? Or get used to a life of prison orange?

Darcy is back!  Foolproof literally started with a boom, and this time it came a little too close to home. It would seem dead like to following Darcy wherever she goes, although this time someone is intentionally trying to bring Darcy’s alter ego down. Will Darcy be able to find the culprit before it’s too late?

As always, I really enjoyed reading Foolproof, the complex story-line and mystery of murders have always kept me on my toes. I enjoyed following Darcy’s instinct on solving each mystery, her wits and personality is fun and entertaining to read.

Upon returning from her abduction, Darcy suffers from PTSD, she is now afraid of the dark. While Dylan becomes somewhat paranoia of losing Darcy, which considered what happened to both of them, I thought it was perfectly understandable.

However, not even Darcy traumatic experience could stop her on finding the truth. I really admired Darcy’s character, she carried so much burden, she views the world a little different than those around her, she may be little misunderstood, but she is optimistic and I thought her character represented courage.

Since I love romance, I have to talk about the romance bits in this book. Darcy and Dylan were in their last year of high school, Darcy is unsure about their future, where Dylan is afraid to leave Darcy behind. I thought their relationship was beautiful, even though they are both still young, but they have experienced so much. Although, sometime I do think Dylan may be a little much, little too sweet at times. But I look forward to see how their relationship continues to grow.

Foolproof will be the last book of Darcy’s childhood, even though I am going to miss reading all the high school drama, however I am even more looking forward to read Darcy’s new adventures.
