Double Dip by Gretchen Archer is the second book in the “Davis Way Crime Caper” series. Publisher: Henery Press, January 2014
It’s Davis Way’s first slot-tournament season. And it may be her last.
Things are dicey at work. A personal assistant goes missing, a little old lady goes on a suspicious winning streak, and a Bellissimo executive goes gaga for Davis. She follows a disappearing slot-tournament player trail to the So Help Me God Pentecostal Church in Beehive, Alabama, then jumps headlong into a high stakes holy scandal.
She’s on a losing streak at home, too. Her days, nights, and dinners run together, as Davis juggles a revolving door of uninvited guests, namely her rotten ex-ex-husband, Eddie Crawford. And Bradley Cole thinks three’s a crowd.
The worst? Davis doesn’t feel so hot. Maybe it’s the banana pudding, or maybe it’s a little bundle of something else.
DOUBLE DIP. A reckless ride in the fast lane, and Davis Way can’t find the brakes.
I had such a good time running around with Davis as she tries to solve all the situations that lands in her lap from the senior winning too too often at the casinos, to her boss’ wife who is too too demanding and to her job that is too too interfering with her love life. How she gets through it all is wrapped in this fast and full speed ahead darling of a book that engaged and entertained me from beginning to end; and what a ride this was.
Davis and her associates, in particular Fantasy and No Hair, are back in this sophomore drama by Ms. Archer that does not disappoint in delivering delightfully charming and amusing adventures from the halls of the Bellissimo.
