Bobbie Faye's Very (very, very, very) Bad Day (aka Charmed and Dangerous) (Bobbie Faye, Bk 1)
Bobbie Faye's Very Bad Day - very, very, very - aka Charmed and Dangerous - Bobbie Faye, Bk 1 Author:Toni McGee Causey Bobbie Faye is in a little bit of trouble. 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 ... more »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, with more drinking and pirates).
Luckily, Bobbie Faye knows how to handle guns, outwit angry mama bears, drive a speedboat, and get herself out of (and into) almost every kind of trouble. If only that pesky state police detective (who also happens to be a pissed-off ex-boyfriend) would stay out of her way.

Oh boy, I want to meet Bobbie Faye. She is a fire cracker! I'm so glad for public libraries as I probably never would have found and read this book if it weren't for my library's New Release shelf. I would say that this is a comedic chick lit mystery... yep, I know, the lines are blurring more and more every day. :O)
Bobbie Faye wakes up one morning thinking that she will have the day to prepare for her home visit regarding her niece. Considering her explosive past (yes literally!), Bobbie should have known better. The fatalities include her trailer, her car, a bank, a truck, a boat... or maybe 2, or 3, or..., an oil rigger, a shack, a salt mine, a junk yard... and that is seriously just 1 day in Bobbie Faye's life. Since there is a very nice summary above in the book details I won't make you read any further summary by me. LOL
From the story line, I believe the author wants you to know that while this is an unbelievable day by our standards, it is a normal day in Bobbie Faye's life. That tells me that any sequel will be even funnier and loads of fun as well!
This book is very entertaining and I laughed through much of it. Her family and friends are a riot and the men in her life are just hot! If you find this at your library... GRAB IT! If it gets posted here... REQUEST IT! If you like to buy books... THEN BUY IT! I don't think you'll regret it.

This has to be the funniest book I have ever laid my hands on! I laughed till I cried for well over 30 minutes as I raced through the pages of the first 5 chapters. Bobbie Faye wakes up at 4am to a flooded out trailer, She finds out her brother is kidnapped and held for ransom over a worthless tiarra. The only shirt she can find to put on is a SHUCK ME, SUCK ME, EAT ME RAW babydoll tee. An electritian shows up to cut off her electrity, all while her trailer begins to collapse. Off to the bank she goes to get money for the electric company, where she accidentally robbs the bank. Then she kidnapps a man and the chase is on. The cops and the feds are after her and the action doesnt stop there. She soon finds herself at the bottom of the lake, being chased by a bear, captured by gunrunners, multiple explosions and so forth.
I can honestly say this is one of the BEST books i have ever read. Props to Toni McGee for this one. Im reading the sequel now and cant put it down. (hint she gets kidnapped 3 times within 15 minutes)
I didn't like this story because somethingS bad just keep layering and heaping onto Bobby until the credability of the story was just too unbelievable to care about what happened. If I'd had another book, I would have stopped reading this one, but I was traveling and stuck.
Funny, funny, FUNNY. Full of grins, giggles and laughs. I started laughing right at the beginning and the humor never let up. The story was a little far-fetched but really a fun book. When they say Bobbie Faye had a Very (very, very, very) Bad Day, they really, really, really mean it! Will look for more by this author and hopefully with the same cast of characters. 5 Stars!
Too Funny! This book covers one day in the life of Bobbie Faye Sumrall, in 336 pages! The woman didn't have time for a decent meal, or a shower. She's trying to convince social services she's fit to care for her neice, her trailer floods, and her brother who was supposed to fix it is kidnapped. And all of this is before breakfast! Bobbie Faye has to try to meet the kidnappers demands while trying to avoid being arrested by her ex. Bobbie Faye reminds me of a Southern Stephanie Plum, on steroids. She's a crack shot, and she never backs down. This book is definately worth a credit!
