Side Hustle: Season Two, Episode One by AJ Lape

May 28, 2019

In season two of SIDE HUSTLE, a three-part serial, Darcy Walker is back delivering pizzas, fighting Los Angeles crime, and attending the police academy. People and experiences may be more glittery than what this midwestern sleuth is accustomed to, but one thing still rings true—living life like a verb comes with a price.

Clyde Sargent is rude. Egotistical. And a bad tipper. Delivering a fourteen-inch Rollo’s Revenge pizza should be an in-and-out job. Until he drops a bombshell he might’ve committed murder. Then Darcy Walker can’t let it go.

Days from the police academy, Darcy’s conscience reminds her it’s not her job to solve the mystery. No matter how appealing the challenge may be. 

Struggling with coloring between the lines, the more she tries to conform, the more crime the universe throws her way. A dead body appears. A hit is placed on her friends. And someone from the academy has a Star Wars moment and goes to the dark side.

A new day is on the horizon in season two of Side Hustle. Darcy’s dream is within reach. Will she pump the brakes on her personality and let others take her cases? Or will she get kicked out of the program before she even earns her badge?

The start of another great season, or chapter in Darcy's life. I am so glad for the continuation of seeing Darcy Walker attack adulthood. Now we see her entering the police academy... and you guessed it, more dead people and obstacles for her.


I love how Lape's imagination keeps this series kicking and kicking hard, literally. The start of this new season starts with a bang. I am hooked. I am gearing up for some great sleuthing and Darcy being Darcy yet again.


This episode is the best picture of Darcy's insecurities to date. She became more real in this episode. More honest than she has ever been. My heart rate kicked in gear anticipating where her journey is yet to be.


If you haven't picked up this series yet, head over to the Zon, pick up book one and get started. Start binge reading until you have caught up. There may be a handful of books, but I promise it won't take you long. You will eat up this series like it's your last meal.
