My Musing ~ Double Whammy by Gretchen Archer

Double WhammyDouble Whammy by Gretchen Archer is the first book in the new “Davis Way” humorous mystery series. Publisher: Henery Press, May 2013

Davis Way thinks she’s hit the jackpot when she lands a job as the fifth wheel on an elite security team at the fabulous Bellissimo Resort and Casino in Biloxi, Mississippi. But once there, she runs straight into her ex-ex husband, a rigged slot machine, her evil twin, and a trail of dead bodies. Davis learns the truth and it does not set her free—in fact, it lands her in the pokey.

Buried under a mistaken identity, unable to seek help from her family, her hot streak runs cold until her landlord Bradley Cole steps in. Make that her landlord, lawyer, and love interest. With his help, Davis must win this high stakes game before her luck runs out.

Oh my goodness, what a riot of laughter I had reading the adventures and escapades of Davis Way. Landing the perfect job, or so she thinks, puts her in situations that were both amusing and intriguing as I watched her achieve her goal, that is until one dastardly incident and then the real Davis Way with unlikely help proves that she’s tougher than she appears. Surrounded by an interesting cast of characters exploding with southern charm, this was a fun read full of snarky and witty banter (especially her internal dialogue) that kept me entertained as I quickly turn the pages in a book that I could not put down. This is a great debut and I can’t wait for the next book in this engagingly appealing series.

FTC Full Disclosure – The publisher sent me a copy of this book, in hopes I would review it.

  1. I loved this book, too! I got to read the ARC and loved every minute of it. Archer is so talented and the book is funny and at times, bittersweet. I agree, a great debut!

  2. There are so many good reviews of this book out there! I can’t wait to sink my teeth into it after I finish this other book (that isn’t very good :/).

    We interviewed Gretchen over on our blog and she’s giving away swag so be sure to go enter:

    I could not believe that it took as long as it did for Gretchen to realize that she was a brilliant author and to have her first book hit the bookstores just last week. She did a fabulous job capturing all of the fabulous traits and quirks of her main character and the other characters as well. She held my interest the entire time; when I don’t take time to eat lunch and don’t want to cook dinner, you have to KNOW that I am into a fantastic book!!! Gretchen has found the secret to making her characters not only bright and talented but also very amusing and likeable. Her writing style is what made me love the book so much that I really wanted there to be a real life Davis Way and to possibly go with her to a casino for some excitement!!!!
