DOUBLE WHAMMY A Davis Way Mystery (#1) by Gretchen Archer
“Funny & wonderful & human. It gets the Stephanie Plum seal of approval.” – Janet Evanovich
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.

My Review: Double Whammy
This was a funny mystery with lots of gambling frauds. The characters are interesting. Some funny.
the suspense of everything was good to the last. A little bit boring on the gambling facts but they needed to be their to show how they cheated.
Davis Way is the main character. No one believes that is a real name and causes her a lot of grief. She has a lot of problems in her past. She is smart and figures out ways of how the crooks are cheating. Her new job has a lot of secrecy about it. She is smart to not to trust everything, but still gets into lots of trouble. She develops a crush on the lawyer who sub-leased his apartment to her.
Their are so many secrets about the casino and the different people she meets. She has a lot of disguises with different identities for different undercover jobs to figure out how their cheating.
She keeps hiring a cab that the driver does not want to work and is rude to her but he also helps her and is interesting relationship.
Davis family relationships is messed up. She is her daddy daughter and Her mom is not happy with her. Her ex-husband twice she does not have good relationship with at all.
I can't wait to read the next Davis Way Mystery.
I was given this ebook to read and asked by NetGalley to give honest review of it.
