Publisher's Summary

“A smart, snappy writer who hits your funny bone!” (Janet Evanovich).
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.

Great mystery

Where does Double Dip rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Distinguished. It's better than most audiobooks.


What was one of the most memorable moments of Double Dip?

When Fantasy and Davis had one too many martinis. They were really funny drunks.


What does Amber Benson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Her unique accent and unique intonations.


Any additional comments?

Life in Biloxi, Mississippi has been a little rocky for Davis Way. Her live-in boyfriend, Bradley Cole is on a big case and is hardly ever home, juggling her security job and her doppleganger job for her employer’s wife has kept her extremely busy, she’s pregnant, and someone is out to get her boyfriend. When an underground senior citizen retirement center is discovered in the heart of the Bellisimo, Davis finds herself having to draw on her family and friend ties to bring the perpetrators to justice. Will she succeed in saving her jobs, getting her boyfriend back safe and sound, and keeping her sanity?

Although, narrator, Amber Benson wasn’t quite as entertaining as the first book’s narrator, her unique intonations and smooth transitions did a great job of bringing Archer’s characters and the world of Biloxi to life. The plot is well-developed and engaging. Unlike the first one, this book has no plot dragging issues and moves at a steady pace. The narrative and writing styles are clear, easy to follow, and complement each other well. The humor and light-hearted nature of the book was masterfully mixed with the suspense and danger the main character and her boyfriend faced. Overall, I give it 5 out of 5 stars. A must read for fans who liked the first one or for people who like mystery novels.
