Davis Way thinks she's hit the jackpot when she lands a job as the fifth wheel on an elite security team at the fabulous Bellissimo Resort and Casino in Biloxi, Mississippi. But once there, she runs straight into her ex-ex husband, a rigged slot machine, her evil twin, and a trail of dead bodies.
Davis learns the truth, and it does not set her free - in fact, it lands her in the pokey. Buried under a mistaken identity, unable to seek help from her family, her hot streak runs cold until her landlord, Bradley Cole, steps in. Make that her landlord, lawyer, and love interest. With his help, Davis must win this high-stakes game before her luck runs out.
This book is part of the Henery Press Mystery Series Collection, if you like one, you'll probably like them all! Double Whammy is the first book in the Davis Way humorous mystery series.

"Funny & wonderful & human. It gets the Stephanie Plum seal of approval." (Janet Evanovich)
"Archer navigates a satisfyingly complex plot and injects plenty of humor as she goes. This madcap debut is a winning hand for fans of Janet Evanovich and Deborah Coonts." (Library Journal)
At home in the snowy mountains of Utah. Who says you need to have a summer...
I would be comfortable recommending this to any fan of cozy mysteries. While there is some romantic tension and violence, it does not proceed beyond a level acceptible for most cozy mystery lovers. I also continue to enjoy the reading/performance of Dina Pearlman. I have listened to many of her other audiobooks and find that she is consistently excellent.
Davis's encounters with Maxine and Mary at the Double Whammy machines. i also enjoyed Teeth and No Hair in all their intimidating glory.
Morgan George Sr.was my favorite character beyond Davis.
Hoping that Double Dip will also make its way to audio.
Yes. Because some of the character's thoughts are so funny. I would enjoy listening again.
Davis Way. Because of her name, where she is from, her personality and sarcasm.
Davis Way, definitely.
Just entertaining overall. The author and narrator did a great job making me feel the characters and understand their thoughts/actions.
Can't wait for the next book in the series! Please keep Dina Pearlman as the narrator -- she IS Davis Way.
I totally enjoyed this book! It was so funny. Davis Way is a little bit pathetic (but in a funny way), quite ingenious and completely hilarious. I am so glad that I stumbled upon this book here on audible and decided to give it a try. I bought the kindle book (well worth the $2.99) and the discounted audible book (also well worth the money or the credit). Dina Perlman does a great job narrating but the book reads well in print, too (I mostly listened to it but did read some of it). I will definitely be watching out for the next book in this series. I hope they do an audible version of that one, as well.
I rarely give a poor review, but this book was terrible. I read the entire book because I wanted to give it every opportunity to get better. The heroine was exceedingly stupid, yet we were expected to believe it when she came up with brilliant, complicated plans. For example, she has a master's degree in criminal justice and computer programming, was a police officer (fired), and yet she broke into an office and couldn't resist picking up a gun that she found. It went off and blew a big hole in the wall. She blamed the person who owned the gun because the safety should have been on. She also left her fingerprints on the gun. In another example, when a security person made a comment about sweeping the room (meaning to debug it), she kept thinking he was talking about an actual broom. Duh!
