Double Strike

The third installment of the Davis Way Crime Caper series is as laugh out loud funny as the first two.  I read it in less than 24 hours and it had got me rolling with laughter.

"She'd mentioned it.  She made me hang my head out the window on the ride over.  No hair and Makeup Angela had somehow gotten her hands on a gallon jug of bull goo (I didn't ask) and I was treating myself to a Viagra mask before this Monday got into full swing.  Angela taped a note to the bucket: Get it on for an hour in the mornings, let it sink into your scalp, and even after you shampoo it out it will work its magi all day.  I had a shower cap over the bull mask and a cashmere sweater tied around the shower cap (a last-minute grab because I tossed ten drawers in our closet and still couldn't find a scarf) but bulls are stronger than plastic and cashmere.  I couldn't do the keep-it-cold business, because I just didn't have time to fashion an ice hat for myself, and I didn't want to freeze to death.  After battling the sleeves of the sweater out of my face a hundred times, I gave up and tied them in a knot on top of my head.  "This isn't a fashion show, Fantasy."

The book begins the day before Davis is supposed to marry Bradley Cole, but of COURSE nothing goes as planned. 

Description: Bellissimo Resort and Casino Super Spy Davis Way knows three things: Cooking isn't a prerequisite for a happy marriage, don't trust men who look like David Hasselhoff, and money doesn't grow on Christmas trees. None of which help when a storm hits the Gulf a week before the most anticipated event in Bellissimo history: the Strike It Rich Sweepstakes. Securing the guests, staff, and property might take a stray bullet. Or two.

Bellissimo Resort and Casino Super Spy Davis Way has three problems: She's desperate to change her marital status, she has a new boss who speaks in hashtags, and Bianca Sanders has confiscated her clothes. All of which bring on a headache hot enough to spark a fire. Solving her problems means stealing a car. From a dingbat lawyer.

Bellissimo Resort and Casino Super Spy Davis Way has three goals: Keep the Sanders family out of prison, regain her footing in her relationship, and find the genius who wrote the software for futureGaming. One of which, the manhunt one, is iffy. Because when Alabama hides someone, they hide them good.

DOUBLE STRIKE. A VIP invitation to an extraordinary high-stakes gaming event, as thieves, feds, dance instructors, shady bankers, kidnappers, and gold waiters go all in. #Don'tMissIt

This book was great.  Davis, Fantasy and Baylor keep getting into ridiculous predicaments and it is down right hilarious! I really enjoyed all the different hash tags and the making fun of social media.  It was genius.  I also loved the new story lines and new characters that brought hilarity to the group. 

This is a smarter, funnier Stephanie Plum series.  Or maybe like the early Stephanie Plum was.  It's great!  If you need a laugh or a new series to check out I highly recommend the Davis Way Crime Capers by Gretchen Archer!

The only sad part is that I will have to wait so long until the 4th book comes out.  YOU however can catch right up to the series as this book comes out today!!!

What was the last laugh out loud book you read? Do you ever wonder what behind the scenes at a casino would look like?

I received this book from the publisher for review.  All thoughts and opinions are my own.
