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.

not crazy about new narrator but still love Davis
Is there anything you would change about this book?
was just as funny as the first.however the story line ran up and down through a lot of places.a little hard to follow sometimes but I love all the characters.
Would you be willing to try another book from Gretchen Archer? Why or why not?
I would be willing to try another book I like her story lines. I like the characters in this book. think just need more focus next time.
What didn’t you like about Amber Benson’s performance?
she was not as animated as the first narrator
If this book were a movie would you go see it?

Terrific Story; Sub-Par Narration
What did you like best about Double Dip? What did you like least?
Archer's characters are quirky and three-dimensional. There's a good mix of sane and crazy. I know very little about the casino world, but Archer's descriptions are so vivid that I never feel lost. She weaves story and setting extremely well.
Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?
Just as one story line seems to tie up, another unravels and usually in a most humorous way.
Would you be willing to try another one of Amber Benson’s performances?
Could you see Double Dip being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?
I'm not up on current popular stars, so I'm not a great person to ask how to cast this for movie, TV, or internet.
Any additional comments?
Amber Benson is a fine reader and handles Southern English well as one character. Her trouble comes in trying to deal with another accent besides Davis Way. The grandmother sounded as though she lived part of her life in Minnesota and part in New Jersey. As for No-Hair and Sanders, Benson probably should stop trying to sound like a man to save her vocal chords. The other women, including Fantasy, sounded as though Benson was pretending to be a fairy. And the TV news reporter sounded like a kindergartener pretending to be a fairy.Ms. Benson is a soprano who is attempting to sing alto, tenor, and baritone. One needs a plus-sized vocal range for narration of books with lots of characters. Sometimes the range comes with age. Save your fine voice, Ms. Benson, and stick with projects that have a smaller range required.But Archer's writing is spot-on. I look forward to Davis Way's next caper.
