Publisher's Summary

On behalf of USA Today best-selling author Gretchen Archer, welcome aboard flight Double Up. Fasten your seat belts for non-stop action as stiff competition blows into town and the resulting turbulence threatens to take down the Bellissimo Resort and Casino in Biloxi, Mississippi.

Super Secret Spy Davis Way Cole, who lives on the 29th floor of the hotel with her CEO husband and newborn twins, takes it hard. If the casino goes belly up, she won't be a stay-at-home mom because she won't have a home. Not to mention, her husband won't have a job.

Davis can't find a way to stop the inevitable end of the Bellissimo life she loves until her ex-mother-in-law shows up, unexpected and definitely uninvited. Davis makes the best of a bad Bea Crawford situation and recruits her for a little corporate espionage work, which would've been great, had Bea not turned out to be the world's worst spy. Ever. Seatbacks and tray tables in their upright positions as we prepare for a bumpy ride with babies, bankruptcies, besties, and shrimp. (Shrimp?) Enjoy your flight.

Absolutely Hilarious

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, this is by far the funniest of all of the Davis Way Crime Capers.

Bea Crawford!

Would you be willing to try another one of Amber Benson’s performances?

No

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Biloxi Blitz goes Boom

Any additional comments?

The book was awesome. The narration is bad! At times I was confused on which character dialogue. The first narrator was the best.

Not as good as the earlier books in the series

Not as good as the earlier books in the series, but still enjoyable. If you're a fan of the series I recommend this book

new narrator please!!!

I intensely dislike the narrator I don't like her delivery, her Cadence, her voices are similar and they don't match the characters. Also, her voice is extremely irritating. I really like the books but might have to go to reading because it's hard to listen to the narrator.

Cute story, hate the narration.

I really don't like the narration in this series. The twenty-something lead character sounds like she is fifty-something. The male characters are poorly done and southern accents are used to indicate a character is stupid. The narrator really ruins it for me.

Double up

If you could sum up Double Up in three words, what would they be?

exciting, never boring, funny

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

Yes

Which scene was your favorite?

David and Fantasy trying to get into the Blitz

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

When Davis found out what was really going on with Fantasy.

Any additional comments?

I hope the series continues.

Too gross and depressing, couldn't finish

The narrator isn't bad, but I think the monotony of his voice made the whole book sound drearier. Avoid this book if you, like me, don't want to hear the gory (pervy) details of what goes on in a """"spa"""" just short of a brothel.

Grow a spine for goodness sakes

I guess the formula for cozy mysteries is that the heroines suffer silently while being imposed upon by bombastic friends and families; hides important facts from their spouses and law enforcement till their relationship wanders or they’re in mortal dangers. That’s what I’ve learned from the last 5 stories and this seem to be the worst offender.

Is there any reason why Davis can’t separate herself from these folks and move on to a healthy relationship with Bradley, her children and her own family? Get over the teen aged emotional damage and move on. The last book was compelling, I stayed up all night listening to it, but this one seem to be unbearable tacky.

Most enjoyable so far!

The narrator is amazing and I can’t imagine reading the book would even be near as enjoyable as listening to it. Bea is my favorite character. The complexity of the behind the scenes computer knowledge is impressive. I don’t think you’ll find a smarter author that writes cozy mysteries.

Can’t take the narrator for the sub characters

After I started listening to this I remembered why I quit listening to the audio on these books. The books are fun to read but I cannot take the way the narrator portrays all the secondary characters. They are so grating and obnoxious. She is a good narrator for the main voice but almost all the other characters are just awful

Baby talk

Too much baby talk. Took to long for story to take off. Her worst one in the series. At end of someone sat on her sofa, she had to keep calling it a Life Sofa...I think we got it after first time
