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 random. 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, 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 a true original and Toni McGee Causey a true talent!"
--Melissa Senate, author of See Jane Date and Love You To Death
 
"I love Bobbie Faye's Very (very, very, very) Bad Day by Toni McGee Causey. The tears are still running down my cheeks from laughing. Oh, my. What talent. What verve. What NERVE!"
--Gayle Lynds, New York Times bestselling author of The Last Spymaster

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

"Heroine—or superheroine? Bobbie Faye, Southern, eloquent, kick-ass, highly accomplished and just plain nuts, is a magnet for the most colorful collection of riff-raff and the most sexually compelling males south of Minneapolis. Throw in an unlikely MacGuffin and you've got a very, (very, very, very) entertaining book."
--Harley Jane Kozak, Agatha, Anthony, and Macavity award-winning author of
Dating Dead Men and Dating is Murder
 
“Hold on for the ride, Bobbie Faye is 100% pure adrenaline! Toni McGee Causey's exceptional debut novel is a page-turning, side-splitting, hilarious caper, complete with mama bears, explosions, double-crosses, an evil villain, a sexy whip-wielding model, a hot cop, a hotter hostage, and a smart, sassy, crazy heroine. Causey has penned a laugh-out-loud nonstop thriller. Bobbie Faye's Very (very, very, very) Bad Day is really (really, really, really) good!”
--Allison Brennan, USA Today and NYT Bestselling author of The Prey, The Hunt, and The Kill
 
"Bobbie Faye is a true original and Toni McGee Causey a true talent!"
--Melissa Senate, author of See Jane Date and Love You To Death
 
"I love Bobbie Faye's Very (very, very, very) Bad Day by Toni McGee Causey. The tears are still running down my cheeks from laughing. Oh, my. What talent. What verve. What NERVE!"
--Gayle Lynds, New York Times bestselling author of The Last Spymaster
 
"If there's such a thing as "screwball suspense", Bobbie Faye is its new pinup girl.  Bobbie Faye's Very (very, very, very) Bad Day is so funny it should come with a warning label:  "Do not attempt to eat or drink while reading this book."  A winning combination of an eccentric yet charmingly sassy heroine, a sexy yet baffled hero, slambang action, and page-turning mystery (what will Bobbie Faye destroy next?) make this the perfect book for anyone who enjoys Jennifer Crusie or Janet Evanovich."
--India Edghill, author of Queenmaker and Wisdom’s Daughter
 
"Bobbie Faye can get into more and funnier trouble faster than Kinsey Millhone, Stephanie Plum, and that chick who drove the bus in SPEED combined, and there's nobody I'd rather have for a friend, because you just know that if The Bad Guys were holding you prisoner somewhere and the odds were a hundred to one, Bobbie Faye would still come bust you out.  She's the go-to poster girl for action-adventure chicklit, and even her enemies like her."
--Rosemary Edghill, author of Bell, Book, and Murder and Met by Moonlight
