Double Up, by Gretchen Archer just came out March 21st from Henery Press and it's worth the space in your bag! This is the 6th story featuring the ever amusing Davis Way. Each book has a new twist on Davis's job with the Bellissimo Casino. This time she has newborn twins, a bit of post-partum anxiety/depression and a house that is ALIVE to deal with!
Description: Welcome aboard flight DOUBLE UP. Fasten your seatbelts for non-stop action as stiff competition blows into town and the resulting turbulence threatens to take down the Bellissimo Resort and Casino in Biloxi, Mississippi. Super Secret Spy Davis Way Cole, who lives on the twenty-ninth floor of the hotel with her CEO husband and newborn twins, takes it hard. If the casino goes belly up, she won’t be a stay-at-home mom because she won’t have a home. Not to mention her husband won’t have a job.
Davis can’t find a way to stop the inevitable end of the Bellissimo life she loves until her ex-ex-mother-in-law shows up, unexpected and definitely uninvited. Davis makes the best of a bad Bea Crawford situation and recruits her for a little corporate espionage work, which would’ve been great, had Bea not turned out to be the world’s worst spy.
Seatbacks and tray tables in their upright positions as we prepare for a bumpy ride with babies, bankruptcies, besties, and shrimp. (Shrimp?)
Enjoy your flight. .

Oh my GOODNESS. I was dying at this book. My favorite part is towards the end with Davis is with her partner and crime and they are trying to 'save the day.' The description of the smells and disgustingness they go through to save their jobs and loved ones had me rolling! I can't go into more detail without blowing plot but OMG, if you haven't started this series you need too.
I keep saying I will check out other cozy mysteries from this press and each time I'm at the library I forgot. This summer I need to get on it. They take me back to the early years of the Stephanie Plum series and boy do I love that series!
Anyone have any other funny/cozy mystery suggestions?
I received a copy of this book for review. All thoughts and opinions are my own!
