Double Up: A Davis Way Crime Caper

Gretchen Archer. Henery, $15.95 trade paperback (230p) ISBN 978-1-635-11181-1
Security expert Davis Way Cole must cope with a diabolical smart home, as well as twins-inspired sleep deprivation, in Archer’s winning sixth caper set in Biloxi, Miss. (after 2016’s Double Knot). Davis lives at the Bellissimo Resort and Casino with her husband, Bradley Cole, who’s the Bellissimo’s president and CEO, and much is expected of Davis in protecting the resort’s assets. A new casino has opened, and the result is likely to be the demise of the Bellissimo, thanks in part to Davis’s inattention to the business since the babies were born. While the Coles’ home screams such warnings as “eggs expire in two days” and the new nanny, July Jackson, rides herd on the twins, Davis sets out to save the casino, recruiting her ex-ex-mother-in-law, Bea Crawford, for some espionage. Unfortunately, Bea, who showed up without warning and with a suspiciously large amount of luggage, turns out to be a really bad spy. Readers will laugh all the way to the end of this madcap adventure. (Mar.)
