“Outrageous, outlandish, and impossible to put down.” – Janet Evanovich
On behalf of USA TODAY bestselling author Gretchen Archer and the entire Henery Press crew, welcome aboard flight DOUBLE UP. Fasten your seatbelts for non-stop action as stiff competition blows into town and the resulting turbulence threatens to take down the Bellissimo Resort and Casino in Biloxi, Mississippi. Super Secret Spy Davis Way Cole, who lives on the twenty-ninth floor of the hotel with her CEO husband and newborn twins, takes it hard. If the casino goes belly up, she won’t be a stay-at-home mom because she won’t have a home. Not to mention her husband won’t have a job.
Davis can’t find a way to stop the inevitable end of the Bellissimo life she loves until her ex-ex-mother-in-law shows up, unexpected and definitely uninvited. Davis makes the best of a bad Bea Crawford situation and recruits her for a little corporate espionage work, which would’ve been great, had Bea not turned out to be the world’s worst spy.
Seatbacks and tray tables in their upright positions as we prepare for a bumpy ride with babies, bankruptcies, besties, and shrimp. (Shrimp?)
Enjoy your flight.

DOUBLE TROUBLE - DOUBLE FUN!!
Double Up (A Davis Way Crime Caper Book 6) is THE BEST OF THE BEST!! From start to finish your heart will be beating double-time as you follow Davis Way Cole's latest adventures in and around the fabulous Bellissimo Casino. Double the bundles of joy. Double the trouble the Bellissimo is in. Double the struggle of strained friendships. Double the entertainment of reading the incredibly hilarious descriptions of EVERYTHING in the way that only Gretchen Archer can describe!! Mainly, it's a wonderful story about friendships. Old, new and repurposed. I was provided an ARC by NetGalley and Henery Press but the opinion expressed here is my own.
Hilarious and heartwarming
Once again Ms Archer has delivered absolute writing genius in her latest Davis Cole, née Way, story. The reader is taken for a roller coaster ride from the opening paragraph as Davis battles her own demons of the eminent demise of the life she, her husband and twin baby girls have known. Blaming herself for all that has befallen the Bellissimo casino, she sets out to right the perceived wrongs, using what has driven all her previous capers, her intelligence, gut and pure tenacity.
Davis takes us on her journey from the near shut in she had become, in part due to the birth of her daughters, and in part to her own self reflections. In typical Davis (and Ms Archer) fashion, Davis' inner monologue is snarky and sharp, the dialog moving at warp speed (hang on so you don't miss any of the snappy Davis nuances), with completely laugh out loud hilarity ensuing as it starts with House and evolves into side splitting laughter when ex, ex mother-law Bea (who brings with her some surprisingly heartwarming moments...anyone having followed the series thus far knows what a major coup this is) lands on Davis' door step...literally. All the previous characters I have grown emotionally attached to return, with their interactions bringing some of the most memorable moments.
What has been trademark in the Davis series, what you think you know is not necessarily correct, and usually off base, is present once again. There are twists and turns that'll keep you not only riveted, but guessing what Davis has in store next...I can pretty much guarantee that laughter be evolved. I thoroughly enjoy that while the story is neatly resolved, the ending is left open for more in the series, but left in such a way that you never know what caper my befall Davis next.
