“Bobbie Faye Sumrall is a disaster waiting to happen! However, this “can’t take no for an answer” woman never needs anyone, EVER. But when she wakes up in the middle of the night and finds her trailer has been newly renovated as a pool, she calls her brother, Roy. After all, he had promised her to fix the source of the problem. Finally getting Roy on the phone, he claims to have been kidnapped and they are demanding she had over her plain metal Contraband Queen tiara, the only thing her momma left her.
One problem, she’s standing in a flooded trailer and the power company has just shut off her lights, unless she can pay a deposit, and the tiara is at the bank in a safety deposit box. On top of that, she has to get her niece, Stacey, to school.
After stopping off to get an advance from her boss, Bobbie Faye heads to the bank just as her car sputters to a stop and dies in the bank parking lot. Getting her check cashed and securing the tiara, Bobbie Faye starts to leave the bank but is robbed of both. In order to chase after the bandits, Bobbie Faye forces a guy at gun-point to follow, but not before firing off a “warning” shot.
Not wanting her brother to be killed before she gets the honors, Bobbie Faye must retrieve the tiara and give it to the kidnappers, all the while dealing with an ever so handsome hostage. A car chase ensues between the thieves, Bobbie Faye with her hostage and now ex-boyfriend, Cam, a local cop.
Before the day is over, Bobbie Faye will have more than her fill of irate ex-boyfriends, infested swamps, FBI, explosions and her attractive captive, all the while wearing a “Shuck Me, Suck Me, Eat Me Raw” t-shirt from a local restaurant. The day just couldn’t get any worse?
Toni McGee Causey will have you laughing out loud as her insane characters take you on a ride of pure chaos. This book could only be described as a rollercoaster ride with dynamite! You’ll want to keep Bobbie Faye’s Very (very, very, very) Bad Day around for any bad day you might have! ”
