Double Whammy by Gretchen Archer


From Henery Press:
Davis Way thinks she’s hit the jackpot when she lands a job as the fifth wheel on an elite security team at the fabulous Bellissimo Resort and Casino in Biloxi, Mississippi. But once there, she runs straight into her ex-ex husband, a rigged slot machine, her evil twin, and a trail of dead bodies. Davis learns the truth and it does not set her free—in fact, it lands her in the pokey.
Buried under a mistaken identity, unable to seek help from her family, her hot streak runs cold until her landlord Bradley Cole steps in. Make that her landlord, lawyer, and love interest. With his help, Davis must win this high stakes game before her luck runs out.

The Bad:
The writing was disjointed, jumping from flashbacks to present day and from situation to situation without transition.  I did not find the main character, Davis to be very likable and frankly the "love" interest seemed to be thrown in at the end as a given, without any development or build.  This is Ms. Archer's debut and the first in the series, so I hold out hope that the series will improve.    
The Good:
There were a couple of scenes that made me giggle, but mostly I found this book difficult to finish.
