Format: Paperback
After a little misunderstanding with her ex-ex-husband, Davis Way finds herself in need of a new career and a new life. Desperate for work, she takes a complicated undercover job at a casino in Biloxi, Mississippi. But her dream job isn't as fab as advertised. She can't quite trust her boss or his secretive secretary. The cabbie who lives out of his car and gives her occasional advice and reluctant rides seems to know more than he's telling. And somehow, her jerk of an ex-ex-husband is involved in scamming the casino. Davis is determined to sort it all out, but as her life unravels, can she stay out of trouble long enough to catch a killer and solve a whammy of a mystery?

Gretchen Archer has crafted a character in Davis Way that is engaging, smart, and snarky, with a tenacious attitude that gets her into brilliant complications. While Double Whammy was laugh out loud funny (seriously--I was reading at the doctor's office and started cracking up before I remembered where I was), all of the characters showed depth and emotion that made this book a thoroughly pleasurable read. I loved every second of it and can't wait for the next installment.

I loved this book! Gretchen Archer has created a character I want to hang out with often. Davis Way is witty and smart, and while she's gotten herself into trouble rather spectacularly, Archer does an excellent job of showing us the layers of the character and what makes her tick.

The casino setting is well drawn and interesting, and Archer weaves it into the story well so that the plot moves along at a fast clip.

I'm eagerly awaiting the next Davis Way mystery

Gretchen Archer's debut novel, Double Whammy, is a fun, entertaining read. I loved the main character, Davis Way, and found myself laughing so much throughout the book at her carefree ways.

Davis Way, from Pine Apple, Alabama, lands herself an undercover security job in a Mississippi casino. Dressed in expensive clothes and crazy wigs, she's given a pocket full of cash to go play and figure out how someone keeps winning the progressive payout on the Double Whammy slot game. Who wouldn't love that job?

I enjoyed this book so much, I had a hard time putting it down. Davis' crazy antics and hilarious daydreams kept me glued to the pages right to the end. Her nicknames for her co-workers, Teeth & No-Hair, had me envisioning them as `hulk' type men, and Bradley was a fairy tale prince charming.

I enjoyed all the characters, and the mystery of who the `bad guy' was, wasn't easy to figure out until the end.

Overall, Double Whammy was a fast-paced fun, mystery that I would happily recommend it.

Gretchen Archer's book, Double Whammy, is unlike most other mysteries of the cozy variety that I have ever read. I enjoyed this book SO much that I read it twice from the day that I received it as a free book won on Goodreads. This author is such an intelligent writer with describing people, places, situations, events, etc. so clearly that you can just picture them in your mind's eye. Ms. Archer's talent to give such emotion to her main character was outstanding. I found every character to be described so well that I had a mental picture of each. The story is written wonderfully well, with a very unique, unusual and extremely interesting story that hints as to where the story is going, but then takes you to another conclusion soon afterwards and something that I just adored about the book. I do not want to know who the true criminal is until the very end of a book and this book kept me guessing all along the way. There is not only the normal cozy type mystery here, but a lot of raw emotions, kindness, bantering, joking, responding to one's self, (which I found very amusing)joking and teasing from one character to another, and making the book a real treat to read as you just never quite new what was around the next corner or the next page. The book is warm, friendly, has compassion, and all these other components to make the central character totally believable in almost an unbelievable way-Davis Way to be exact!!!

I can well imagine this story's main character as a real live person and almost felt as though she was truly alive and living in Pine Apple or Biloxi by the time the story ended. Descriptions were so well done and every story line and incident was tied up nicely somewhere along the line if not at the end of the book.

Out of all of the Henery Press books that I have read so far, I found this one to be the most unique. The story is full of humor, like all Henery Press books are known for--but Davis Way takes her job as undercover security for a Casino in Mississippi very seriously. Being an ex-cop, Davis Way uses her training, wits, and intuition to expose thieves stealing from the hotel--while handling her family, who rags on her all the time; an ex-husband, who she loathes--and is somehow involved in ripping off the casino slot machines; and, the wife of her employer, who is the spitting image of Davis Way! But is there romance? You betcha! And it comes wrapped in a package you'd never expect; Gretchen Archer breaks new ground in her debut novel; if you think you've read it all when it comes to romantic plots, then you will love this fresh perspective.
