My Killer Nashville conference buddy, Gretchen Archer, is releasing her second book in the Davis Way Crime Caper tomorrow. So I’m squeezing one more review in this month. I read the awesome ARC and wanted to blog about it close to her release date. The ebook is on sale now.
Gretchen Archer crafts another page-turner with Double Dip. We travel back to the Bellissimo Casino and it’s cast of delightful characters, who you’ll love spending another book with.
I’m a northerner, but I love the details of Davis’ family and childhood in Pine Apple, Alabama, and her daily life in Biloxi, Mississippi.
I couldn’t put it down and finished the last 200 pages in a day.
Ms. Archer creates a compelling, layered mystery and has a knack for providing enough details to make it realistic without bogging the reader down. I am in awe of Davis’ hacking moments.
The church and the elderly were an unexpected but perfect tie-in to the Bellissimo. It’s pure pleasure to watch Davis pretend to be Mrs. Saunders at events. Davis accidentally taking Granny to the church was a laugh-out-loud roadtrip.
I love Ms. Archer’s voice. Her unique asides in parentheses and her fast humor are destined to be a trademark.
The title is very fitting and the double entendre of Double Dip will become clear by the end of the book.
Fantasy is a great addition to Davis’ team at the Bellissimo. As is Cowboy. I look forward to book 3!
She’s got a cool Facebook Party going on 1/28 if anyone wants to stop by: https://www.facebook.com/events/214005415451613/
Here’s links to more reviews I’ve done this month:
This morning, I’m off to an elderly community to give a private workshop on finding your story. Fingers crossed it all goes well!
Wednesday, I’m video conferencing with the University of Toronto’s Writer’s Co-Op to give a workshop on being a productive part-time writer.
