Fans of Davis Way will be delighted with her latest casino caper. The casino's moved from land to sea and Davis has two jobs as the casino's security spy: watch over the debut cruise of the MS Probability and (once again) serve as casino queen Bianca Sanders's (pregnant) body double. She's got a beautiful suite, a gorgeous wardrobe, a fully stocked kitchen and bar, and two attendants to wait on her. She also has her coworker Fantasia, her cat (Anderson Cooper), (twins on the way), and (unfortun ...more

Gretchen Archer could read a direct marketing call list to me and I think it would be funny as hell. In the latest Davis Way Crime Caper she's at her absolute best--not only sharp, snarky, and hilarious, but this time we get to see more depth to Davis--love seeing her grow in this surprise-twist plot. A fast-paced, original mystery on board a glamorous ship--Ten Little Indians at sea.

Fans of Davis Way will be delighted and worried about her latest adventure. Both Davis and Bianc are pregnant, Davis with twins. They have set sail on the Casino's newest endeavour, a gambling ship called the MS Probability. This is not really a vacation as Davis has two jobs; the casino's security spy watching over the operations of the debut cruise and to once again serve as casino queen Bianca Sanders's body double. In the beautiful suite, she has Fantasy, her mother, a butler and suite atten ...more

Davis Way is back!! And I, for one, have missed her. She is undoubtedly one of my favorite characters. Her antics are hilarious and she is always finding herself in the wrong place at the wrong time.

I do have to say that this one was my least favorite though. I guess since Davis is carrying twins, it's kind of hard of her to get into too many precarious situations, so I can let that slide. That being said, it was still pretty funny just not as outrageously as funny as the others.

However, that

Cute. Davis Way is the Southern answer to Stephanie Plum :)

What could go wrong? A week spent on a boat (err, ship), Davis's mom with the gang and Bianaca's typical hijinxs being left behind while Davis spends the time keeping the ship running smoothly- it'll be a fun time. Right?

You'll have to read Double Knot to find out :)

You don’t want to miss Double Knot, what a fun read! This is the second Davis Way Crime Caper that I’ve read, but the fifth in the series. It was so much fun to be back with Davis and company.

In this outing, a pregnant Davis finds herself aboard a luxury boat (ship! it’s a ship!) to spend a week with fifty billionaire gamblers while posing as her (pregnant) boss, Bianca Sanders. Davis has invited her mother along for the week, as her father insists it’s just what her mother needs. Things are loo

I was lucky enough to read Double Knot before it even had a cover. Davis in-a-family Way is back with the usual cast of zany characters. Like all of Archer's books, Double Knot is laugh-out-loud funny. It also has a heart--a big, squishy, about-to-have-a-baby heart. Archer fans will not be disappointed! New readers will be thrilled to find a caper series guaranteed to bring a smile to their faces.

Extremely Hilarious

If you love to laugh, love to think, love an intelligent author and main character, love a heart warming though fast-moving story, love well developed characters & don't mind a bit of mildly slang language, you must read this series. (especially if you were raised in, or know someone from the South!) I adored Double Knot, just like all the rest of Gretchen Archer's books. I cannot wait to read the next one! They're SO worth the money!!!!

Captured me

I was captured right away by these intriguing characters. The setting is fun for we who cannot imagine the life of the very wealthy. And to have our main character so very pregnant gave it new twist. No super spy antics from her in this one. LOL. The ending was excellent. Action coming at you from all sides! A book to remember.

As always, a fun read. Davis gets locked in a luxurious stateroom on a yacht with Fantasy, and Davis's mom and various staff. Not to be let out for 7 days while something goes on. No Hair is imprisoned elsewhere on the yacht. Her husband is on his way to China, they have no way to reach anyone... did I mention she is pregnant with twins?

Read it in one day because I couldn't stop.

I have thoroughly enjoyed this series, binge reading 5 in a row. I've never done that in my life!
Funny, touching, sincere, a tad over the top but not enough to make me stop reading. Gretchen Archer has a great turn of phrase and deep understanding of relationships.

A winner for sure. I'm not usually a mystery reader, but this cosy series gets top marks from me.

I won this book on a goodreads giveaway for my honest opinion. Double Knot had an interesting plot. The character's are a little off the wall. Davis is a body double for a singer that ends up locked in suite on a luxury boat. The plot is well thought out and will leave you turning the pages wanting to find out how they get out of the mess they are in.

I enjoyed this, overall, but I thought the disposal of the dishes and the Louis Vuitton luggage, was asinine. Perhaps this was the author’s way of showing disdain for the ridiculously over priced baggage, but it struck me as absurd. The wrap up at the end was also very weak.

I'm amazed at how each subsequent book in this series is as interesting and downright hilarious as the previous one! Double Knot has its best funny moments, more on Davis and less of Bradley (sad) and Bianca..worth the read!
