Book Review: "Double Knot" by Gretchen Archer

"Double Knot" by Gretchen Archer comes out April 12, 2016 and is the fifth book in the Davis Way Crime Caper series. I did not read the previous books before reading this one and I'm happy to say it stands on it's own without you needing to have read the last four books. Now, I'm sure I would have enjoyed it even more if I had read the series from the first book (Double Whammy). I also see that the first book is on for a great price, around three dollars as a Kindle book so you certainly can try this series out and fall in love with it for only a tiny bit of cash.

Davis Way works as a spy on an elite security team for Bellissimo, a Resort and Casino in Biloxi, Mississippi. Belissimo has invested billions of dollars to build the world's largest private yacht that will take billionaires on a floating casino cruise to the Cayman Islands. Davis sets sail on the MS Probability, it will be her last assignment before she goes on maternity leave. You'd think it would be a relaxing time but with her mother along and then getting locked in their stateroom, it is anything but calm waters. There shouldn't be any worries though, the stateroom is state of the art and so luxurious it couldn't be a hardship to be locked in for a while, right? Someone will miss them soon. Or are they being kidnapped? Davis has her job cut out for her on this cruise!

This was a very cute cozy mystery. I'd give it a four out of five star rating. My only complaint, and it's a personal one, is how annoying Davis' mother was. If you find know-it-all mothers who can't keep their opinions to themselves as annoying as I do you might grit your teeth a few times while you fantasize about smacking Davis' mother in the mouth. Other than that it's a fun and fast read. Ms. Archer is a good writer and she adds some really funny scenes into each chapter that helps keep the situation light. This would be a great beach read. Bring it on your own cruise, it'll keep you busy as you enjoy your Mai Tai.

Best,
