Book Review: Gretchen Archer’s Double Up

Book Review: Gretchen Archer’s Double Up

Double Up is the sixth book in the Davis Way series and if you haven’t read any of the books in the series, it’s not necessary to enjoy Double Up. I do recommend you start with the first, Double Whammy or at least read, the fifth book, Double Knot so you’ll get an idea of who’s who and what’s going on. That being said, Gretchen Archer does a great job explaining certain events from previous books and of course, nothing I consider to be spoilers. I thought I knew everything there was to know about Davis Way, but Archer proved me wrong! There’s a bit of a time jump from when Double Knot ended and Double Up begins. Davis has been suffering from postpartum depression, even though she insists she’s… Read more »

Book Review: Gretchen Archer’s Double Knot

Book Review: Gretchen Archer’s Double Knot

Woo-hoo, Gretchen Archer’s Davis Way is back! Double Knot is the fifth book in the series and if you haven’t read the series before, it’s not necessary to enjoy Double Knot. I do recommend you read at least the first book, Double Whammy, because you’ll get to meet the characters and better understand who they are and why they act the way they do. We continue to have good character development. I often find myself struggling to read a series when there’s no character growth or there’s nothing new to discover about the main character. Archer does a great job adding more dimensions to her characters. We find out about Davis’ secret, which is heartbreaking on many levels, but also understanding when we find out about it. I won’t say… Read more »

Book Review: Gretchen Archer’s Double Strike

Book Review: Gretchen Archer’s Double Strike

Super sleuth, Davis Way is back and this time she’s in a lot of trouble! Gretchen Archer’s Double Strike is the third book in the Davis Way series and if you haven’t read the first two, it’s not necessary to do so in order to enjoy Double Strike. Although I do recommend reading them just so you’ll be familiar with key characters and Davis’ quirks. We have really good character development despite this being the third book in the series, Archer continues to provide character development. I was actually surprised at how much Bianca Sanders has grown with the series and I love seeing her interactions with Davis. Overall, key characters are showing great character growth including Jeremy (aka No Hair) and Fantasy. I’ve made no secret of my love… Read more »

Book Review: Gretchen Archer’s Double Dip

Book Review: Gretchen Archer’s Double Dip

When in doubt, blame David…er Davis. Davis Way is back and this time in Double Dip she might be in over her head. If you haven’t read the first book, Double Whammy, it’s not necessary to do so in order to enjoy Double Dip. Gretchen Archer does a good job describing past events and gives a clear picture as to who’s who in terms of reoccurring characters. We have good character development and this important because it’s the second book in the series. Archer continues to develop her characters and we get to know them better. I’d like to say there’s more to Davis Way, but no she’s still the same. I love getting in her head with regards to nicknames and her reasoning for giving them. It just cracks… Read more »
