Problem #1: Bootsy Howard. Davis Way Cole lives a (relatively) quiet, (somewhat) simple, and (completely) witch-free life with her husband and twin daughters on the twenty-ninth floor of the Bellissimo Resort and Casino in Biloxi, Mississippi. Until Bootsy Howard shows up demanding a million dollars.

Problem #2: Princess Smucker. What was marketing thinking when they booked the Southern Canine Association's annual dog show at the Bellissimo? And what was Davis thinking when she agreed to let a dog stay with her? For a week? In her home? The home where she lives a (fairly) quiet, (reasonably) simple, and (totally) manicotti-free life?

Problem #3: Leverette Urleen, MD. The last thing Davis needs is an unsolicited house call from Pine Apple, Alabama's latest excuse for a doctor. But since he's there, considering she has a dead body on ice, she might as well have him determine the cause of death. Which he doesn't. Nor is he any help finding the body when Davis loses it.

On top of all that, he won't leave, further disrupting Davis's (more or less) quiet, (to a certain degree) simple, and (utterly) seersucker-free life. A life that's about to go to the dogs. Unless Davis can learn a few new tricks. Fast.

always look forward to a new Davis Way crime caper. I’ve been following the series for a while (have to go back and find the time to read the first couple of books that I missed.) It is one of my favorite series as the plots are hilarious and the characters sometimes bring tears to my eyes from laughing so hard. Davis Way Cole is responsible (part time now that she has the kids) for security at the Bellissimo Resort and Casino in Biloxi, Mississippi. She lives there with her husband (manager of the Casino) and their young twin daughters, taking up half of the 29th floor of the hotel. A continuing theme in the books is that Davis is a dead ringer for the casino owners wife, a pampered lady who prefers to have Davis double for her at local events and has, for some reason, decided that Davis’ name is actually David. In this story, Davis’ past in Pine Apple, Alabama, has made its way into the casino (once again.) Davis is asked to pay a ransom of a million dollars (just go take it from the casino, right?) In her search for the kidnappers, she runs into a cast of characters from Pine Apple – Bootsy Howard (a known witch – just ask any child in Pine Apple), Leverette Urleen, MD – a doctor that I would just say no to, and my favorite, Vreeland Howard (Davis’ sister’s best friend.) Vree talks a mile a minute. She one of those people who seem to have perfected the ability to talk while inhaling as well as exhaling. I laughed my way through the book. The mystery wasn’t too difficult to figure out but the plot did make sense. For me, reading this series isn’t about figuring out the whodunnit. It’s all about enjoying the ride. The book can be read standalone but I recommend reading the series in order. While I enjoy the books I have read, I think I am lacking some background because I missed the first two. I purchased them so it is simply a matter of finding the time to read them. I was provided a digital advance reader copy of this book by the publisher via Netgalley.

I love the Davis Way stories. Davis leads her BFF Fantasy into more scrapes than Lucy did to Ethel. Double Dog Dare is a wonderful comedy/mystery that keeps you trying to tie everything up, right until the last moment. I just have one question, what happened to Anderson Còoper?

Oh my goodness! This 7th book in the Davis Way series had my laughing the whole time I was reading it. I'm still chuckling as I write this review. It never fails...Davis always gets herself into trouble even when she's supposed to be enjoying a girls' week. But everything turns out for the good in the end. And Princess was a hoot. I can't wait to see what Davis gets into in the future. Very well written and it keeps you interested right from the start.

Davis Way is back! I've missed her. While the last installment of Davis' life left me craving Waffle House waffles, this one had my sides splitting from all the laughing out loud that I did while reading this book. (Okay, maybe not splitting, but I did laugh more in this book than I have the others. And, there was no shortage of laughs in the others.) I just love this series. It's WAY better than the Stephanie Plum books. (Twenty books down the road and the girl can't decide on Ranger or Joe? SMH.) Plus, Davis is married and has other things on her mind. The cast of characters, with the exception of the regulars who work at the casino, keep changing as to who from Pine Apple, Alabama is visiting her this time. That city is sure full of wackos. I guarantee once you read one of these books, you will want to read them all. The capers and the situations that Davis finds herself in are hilarious. Thanks to Henery Press and Net Galley for providing me with a free e-galley in exchange for an honest, unbiased review.

A dog show, with a twist! In classic Davis fashion, things go from normal to haywire in just a few minutes! Dogs,twins,witches,fakes and wealthy characters! Some lovable and some not! This book has it all, the craziness, the wit and sarcasm, the heart, by far my favorite Davis book yet!

Right out of the gate the stage is set to keep you hooked through to the end...the Davis Way series has been addicting from its debut. There's one thing, among many more, you can expect from Ms Archer, the complete and utterly unexpected...not to mention hilarity abounds. Her writing is a fresh voice in a sea of monotony from other authors. In this latest installment of a Davis Way escapade the hilarity involves characters of the canine kind, (the imagination that created a creature with such disjointed ugliness of Princess, yet make her lovable in her own way, is genius) among a whole host of human characters of the zany and unsavory variety. Witnessing the workings of Davis' inner monologue gives you the prompt to turn the pages rapidly to discover where the quirky that surrounds her is headed...with a casino as a backdrop, there is no telling who may emerge from the ethers. The addition of Davis's long awaited twin daughters have added another element of freshness, and who leave you chuckling at what can only be described as little Davises in waiting. Toss in her husband Bradley who never ceases to astound at his total acceptance of the wacky that surrounds Davis, most often unbeknownst to him, and you have the straight man to her wackiness. The only disappointment that I ever experience when reading the latest Davis Way story is the end...waiting for the next story is not for the can never come soon enough. This ARC book was complimentary, provided by the Publisher and NetGalley. I am voluntarily providing my honest review.

This is a great book that had me smiling and laughing with tears streaming down my face until the end. Gretchen Archer has created a great book series with wonderful, quirky characters. I love the friendship between Davis and her best friend, Fantasy. Her husband is not too bad either. This is my favorite series. I highly recommend it.

DOUBLE THE TROUBLE! Davis Way Cole is back and better than ever in DOUBLE DOG DARE (A Davis Way Crime Caper Book 7)! Davis is busier than ever with her twenty-month old twins, husband Bradley, returning to work on the Security Staff at the Bellissimo Resort and Casino in Biloxi, MS and of course, being the body double for Bianca Sanders. Archer continues to entertain her readers with the liveliest tales (tails?) of life in Davis’ spacious living area on the 29th floor of the Bellissimo as well as throughout the rest of the Casino and surrounding areas. Our favorite Davis Way characters are back along with special guests - Vree (Davis’ sister’s BFF), Bootsy Howard (a possible witch), Princess Smucker (Pampered Canine - oh what a looker she is!) and Leverette Urleen, MD (how did he get that medical license?) When you add the Southern Canine Association’s annual dog show into the mix can you imagine the mischief that can occur? The masterful blending of hilarious character descriptions and the most creative storylines on the way to crime solving always make Archer’s books Prime Reading!
