Publisher's Summary

Bellissimo Resort and Casino Super Spy Davis Way knows three things: Cooking isn’t a prerequisite for a happy marriage, don’t trust men who look like David Hasselhoff, and money doesn’t grow on Christmas trees. None of which help when a storm hits the Gulf a week before the most anticipated event in Bellissimo history: the Strike It Rich Sweepstakes. Securing the guests, staff, and property might take a stray bullet. Or two. Bellissimo Resort and Casino Super Spy Davis Way has three problems: She’s desperate to change her marital status, she has a new boss who speaks in hashtags, and Bianca Sanders has confiscated her clothes. All of which bring on a headache hot enough to spark a fire. Solving her problems means stealing a car. From a dingbat lawyer. Bellissimo Resort and Casino Super Spy Davis Way has three goals: Keep the Sanders family out of prison, regain her footing in her relationship, and find the genius who wrote the software for future gaming. One of which, the manhunt one, is iffy. Because when Alabama hides someone, they hide them good. Double Strike. A VIP invitation to an extraordinary high-stakes gaming event, as thieves, feds, dance instructors, shady bankers, kidnappers, and gold waiters go all in.

Good read. A lot like Miss Fortune series

The story is cute & fun. The characters are very likeable. The narration is done very well. The only drawback about the stories I can find is that sometimes the transition from one point of the story to another is very abrupt & can take me off guard & confuse me as it doesn't pertain to the previous sentence so I have to rewind & re listen to make sure I didn't miss something. I'm not sure if this is due to the narration or just how the book was wrote as I've never read it. But overall, it's a great series.

Amber Benson IS Davis Way

Another excellent addition to the series and narrator Amber Benson takes these books to the next level. Her voices are fantastic! I smiled almost the whole time I listened partly due to the witty writing and partly due to the delivery. Archer and Benson make a great team! Can't wait for the next one.

Still a good series

As the story continues, Davis has become a stronger more competent spy officer. This books starts 3 years after the first. She likes, no, she loves her job. She loves Bradley Cole, her live in boyfriend too. It is the night before they are to get married that a work related accident happens and everything that can go wrong does go wrong.

Why would such a wonderful man, Bradley, want to marry a woman like her with her ex-ex husband Eddie and a job that never has down time. This spy system within the Bellissimo has become very organized. She has put together a good support/backup team and no longer has to be concern with backstabbing from a co-worker.

With the more competent Davis we lose a lot of the humor.There are more family members making cameos. Unfortunately, their time is to short to add any humor. That is why I only gave it 3 stars. There could be good humor with her mother-law, mother and Davis. I hope that shows up in future books.

Her and Bianca had their exchanges but this book was more involved with Davis solving the mystery first and then getting married (maybe).

Exciting PI Mystery Action

Davis Way has survived her job for close to three years as a (mostly) undercover security officer for the posh Belissimo Resort and Casino in Biloxi but things are looking dicey. Davis is anxious to marry her sweetheart, handsome lawyer, Bradley Cole, and take a four day vacation. Unfortunately she runs into a few obstacles, including a lightning strike at the hotel. Her boss's son, Thomas Sanders, shows up unexpectedly from boarding school. Davis is the lucky one who has to try to keep the high school senior from getting into more trouble.

Bradley gets to break the bad news that the marriage license has been denied due to complications from, of course, her rat ex-ex-husband. Her efforts to sort that problem result in her stealing her annoying lawyer’s car which creates other difficulties.

Meanwhile Davis is told she can’t take days off because she has to help out with a high stakes slot gaming event. The whole event has been brought in from a Vegas crew so neither the staff nor the players have been properly vetted by “No Hair” and the local security team. Davis gets 'fired' her first day as an event waitress and a new security man, Baylor, has to take her place. Fantasy and Baylor get to be painted gold and prance around in bikinis while Davis changes her undercover persona to a social media member under a bouncy ‘hashtag’ queen.

The high tech slot games include specially designed chairs and games that are intuitive to the players. The first players have to buy a seat and then earn points to remain in the game as the nights progress. A certain woman and her husband keep cashing in large checks at the same teller window. That behavior throws up red flags and the suspicion heats up when that woman keeps earning high points in the game. Now Davis is off following the money trail which leads to something hidden in Alabama.

This is book three of this fun series. Davis has grown on me as a character and I enjoy the fact that I am familiar with some of the locations mentioned in the stories - some real towns and others like the quirky towns described by Ms. Archer. Each story has a unique, casino related crime event which is embellished by the undercover high jinks of the security crew and the personal troubles that Davis has to overcome. The storylines are creative in fun ways and I recommend this series to readers who like cozy mysteries and are looking for a lighter, fun read.

Audio Notes: Amber Benson again does a good job with the voices and the story. The story is enhanced by the easy narration.

Double Win!

Once again David Way (or Davis....depending on Bianca) strikes again. If you like sarcasm, improbable situations and over-the-top scenes than this is the mystery for you.

A Fairly Humorous But Very Unlikely Story, Very Well Read

As far as an audiobook, this is very well read by Amber Benson. I read the Kindle and listened. Miss Benson was faithful to the text and did a very nice job with voices and timing. She is able to convey emotion and humor very well. It is a very good performance.

As for the story, it develops somewhat slowly and is almost sheer fantasy based on my career in law enforcement. I have read the first three novels in this series in order. I enjoyed the first one the most, however there were many differences between the Kindle and the audiobook. But the narration was very good.

The next two novels often, but not always, seem to be variations on that first novel. In these novels, the Kindle and audiobook match. At times, I like some of the humor very much, but I am beginning to find the series repetitious. Thank You...

new narrator please

I'll continue to listen although I hate the narrator but I do like the stories she needs to be replaced I believe she may turn people off from the series.

Can't get enough of these characters!

I love Davis Way's humor, antics, self recrimination, and reflection. The characters really interact well together. Each have their strengths, quirks and weaknesses that make a good unit and funny stories. I'm really enjoying these, and finding myself caught up in their world. Wondering what will happen next.
