Bobbie Faye's Very (very, very, very) Bad Day

Bobbie Faye's Very (very, very, very) Bad Day

Bobbie Faye Sumrall knows 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 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…

Bobbie Faye is in trouble from page one and it only gets worse from there.  From trying to retrieve her tiara to rescuing her brother to trying to save her neice, she never lets anything get in the way of her mission.  And even despite her few forays into self-pity (I mean, I think she's entitled after all this), nothing gets her down, nor does she let anything discourage her from her goal.  I wanna be Bobbie Faye when I grow up.

Well, minus all the choas, but the hot men can stay.
