Double Deck The Hall by Gretchen Archer is the second book in the “Bellissimo Casino Crime Caper” Short Story series. Publisher: Henery Press, November 2017

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas at the Bellissimo Resort and Casino in Biloxi, Mississippi. The trees are trimmed, the halls are decked, and Davis Way Cole’s grandmother is there to play in the Winter Wonderland Senior Slot Tournament.

This year’s theme: The Nice List. All is merry and bright until Granny Dee meets an elf who belongs on the naughty list.

Maybe even the downright nasty list.

With nothing more than a lifetime of memories, the sounds of the season, and what she can find in the pockets of her Rudolph jogging suit, can Granny Dee save Bianca Sanders from the rotten elf, and in the process, save Christmas?

Granny Dee may try to save Christmas, but trust me, of all the characters in this non-stop page-turner, Granny Dee steals the show.

What happens when you put Bianca, Granny and an elf in the same room. Why you get an amusing tale that will delight Davis Way fans. When a situation needs to be diffused, call on Granny as she’ll get the job done. This was nice short story with Granny taking center stage in this fast-pace and easy read that kept me entertained from beginning to end. Now we know where Davis gets her smarts and ingenuity. Thanks to the author for this terrific caper.
