There is a mountain of problems and changes piling up and lots of craziness happening when Davis’ ex-ex mother in law shows up at her door, and she decides to “harbor her” at one of the residences on the top floors of the casino. This story brings Bea, also called “Bee Bee Bee” as twins Bexley and Quinn say, into a whole new light with the readers and with Davis. Bea brings the definition of “family” to a whole new meaning when she becomes a “spy” for Davis. What is also very interesting in this story is the newly formed association and admiration
for a character who we met in the previous book, Double Jinx, which brought forth an introduction to July Jackson. July would become not
only closer to Davis than she ever realized could happen and thus supplying Davis with the courage and opportunity that she needs to become an asset to the Bellissimo Casino, not a liability she imagined herself to be, during this period of great turmoil. It was now time to resurface all of her skills and knowledge to make things “happen” and she certainly takes this quest into full-fledged flight. She becomes a master at things she never thought possible, but was willing and also able to accomplish all of this while making us astonished, laughing hysterically throughout the adventures, and doing what she set out to do, and much MUCH more!!! Davis was quite shocked at seeing and hearing how these capers were affecting so many people, as well as herself. With such imaginative writing by Gretchen Archer, you will be able to picture all of these goings-on in your mind very easily while reading about them, which is quite phenomenal.
Since reading Double Up, I bought the MP3/CD of it and it is phenomenal. To hear the narrator speak the voices of all of the characters, definitely brings them and the story to life so much more. I love to read Ms. Archer's book twice, not wanting to miss one little tidbit, and even with that I heard some extra humorous things on the CD that I either missed or found even better due to listening. The narrator's rendition of Davis; ex-ex mother in law, Bea, is the best voice of all to me. I absolutely couldn't stop laughing when those parts were read. Even my husband who is not a cozy fan like I am, was laughing out loud as well when we listened while driving around from place to place. This was the best book so far, but since I believe all are ten star..... Listening to the audio books surely enhances the stories to me, and I hope that all of Ms. Archer's books will have MP3/CD's available. Fabulous!!!!
What I especially loved about this book was how relationships of family and friends mean so much more than we even let ourselves believe possible at times, and many times even greater than you realized until they are not in the forefront of your life, as Davis experiences with Bradley, her parents, July, Baylor, Fantasy and even Bea, and all of the other captivating and prepossessing family members and close friends with whom we have gotten to know in the previous books and with whom Davis, as well as we all need and miss more than we thought possible when they are absent for an extended period of time.
This story presents us with adorable babies, endearing family, reconnecting with old and much needed friends and a vast amount of astonishing escapades filled with Davis’ foresight, ingenuity and cunning while attempting to make the Bellissimo #1 again. A murder way too close to home for comfort is one of the events that catapults Davis to a full-fledged fantastic flabbergasting double-action ride while speeding along to the final chapter of this almost heart-stopping climax. I NEVER saw this very surprising and startling Double Up ending coming and I don’t think you will either, but I am positive that you will want to experience this electrifying and mind-blowing journey and its conclusion.!
It’s not that the book needed another chapter. It was just that I wanted more. I will always want more.
This was a great book. It starts off with a bang and it never slows down, not for a minute. From page one to the last page, it moves, it lives, it breathes.
I find it remarkable that a series which began so simply — a woman taking a job about which she knows nothing — then learning as she goes. Finding love. Managing the hardest parts of life and being everything to not just a boss, but the bosses wife, her husband, her family, and ultimately, her children. She can still do it all.
Against all odds, with all of her personal (and very funny) foibles, she is a champion woman. Smart. Determined, Sensitive. Brave.
Yet, like in the real world, it’s not easy. She could fold up, give up, and move on. But she doesn’t and she won’t and this is that “thing” which makes her a unique character. In a battle of wits, computers, complex corporate greed and corruption. There’s a story — and a story in the story. It is what it seems to be, what it apparently is. But just when you figure “Okay, I’ve got it,” you discover there’s another layer.
The story twists and turns its way to the right conclusion.
The writing is sharp, crisp, perfect. It’s funny and furious. This is a series in which I keep thinking the books can’t get better because they are as good as they could be. But I was wrong. This is better. The characters have grown up. They have depth and what is more, they have purpose. They don’t just keep their jobs. They do whatever they must to make it all work, even when it seems impossible.
The story is intricately complex yet reads like clear water. Nothing stands between you and the story. It is written like glass, without dangling fringes, loose ends, or unattached pieces. Everything goes where it belongs and you end up feeling satisfied — and ready for the next book.
You will never feel the same way about shrimp.
It’s everything I hoped this series could become. DOUBLE UP is a joy to read.
If you haven’t read the rest of the novels, I would highly recommend you read them. The characters make more sense in context of the whole series. One way or another, this is too good to miss. It’s a laugh and a gasp and DOUBLE WOW.
