Bobbie Faye’s Very (very, very, very) Bad Day: A Novel by Toni McGee Causey

From the back of the book:

Bobbie Faye Sumrall knows that a day without disaster is a day in someone else’s life. Criminals have kidnapped her good-for-nothing brother and are demanding her Contraband Queen tiara – the only thing of her mama’s she inherited – as ransom. So Bobbie Faye has to outwit the police, organized crime, former boyfriends, and a hostage she never intended to take (but who turns out to be damn sexy!), in order to rescue her brother, keep custody of her niece, and get back in time to take her place as Queen in the Lake Charles Contraband Festival (think Mardi Gras, but with more drinking and pirates).

Luckily, Bobbie Faye knows how to handle guns, outsmart angry mama bears, drive a speedboat, and get her self out of – and into – almost every kind of trouble. If only a pesky state police detective (who also happens to be a pissed-off ex-boyfriend) would stay out of her way…

This is one of the funniest books I have ever read. Bobbie Faye is a great character. I found myself rooting for her from the very beginning. One of the things I really liked about this book was it took off from the very beginning. I tend to get frustrated at books that have a long lead-in to the action. Bobbie Faye’s Very (Very, Very, Very) Bad Day isn’t like that at all. Another thing that I really enjoyed about Bobbie Faye was the commitment to her family. While the world sees her as a walking disaster (and she is), she is also an extremely loyal sister and protective aunt. Book #2, Bobbie Faye’s (kinda, sorta, not exactly) Family Jewels, is out now. I suggest picking both up. Also, I really want a shirt like Bobbie Faye’s – “Shuck Me, Suck Me, Eat Me Raw” It would make me laugh every time I wear it!
