Toni Causey's achievement is to pack so much disaster (and laughter) into a single day. Bobbie Faye's Very (Very, Very, Very) Bad Day is a lively, thoroughly enjoyable summer read.
I love the story. I don't love the way the publisher has duped readers in order to boost book sales.
Anyone who has ever awakened to find that their day has started without them and already rolled behind the eight-ball will identify with Bobbie Faye, whose morning begins with a household crisis of mini-biblical proportions and flows downhill from there. On what should be the best day of her year --- when she reigns as queen of the Lake Charles, Louisiana Contraband Days Festival --- Bobbie Faye has to deal with the kidnapping of Roy, her no-good, waste-of-skin brother, the theft of her tiara (which is the only thing she inherited from her mother) and a police manhunt of which she is the subject. All Bobbie Faye has to do is recover her tiara, give it to her brother's kidnappers as ransom, keep what is left of her trailer from being ransacked, hold Children's Services at bay so they don't abscond with her niece, and reign supreme as festival queen.
How is Bobbie Faye going to do it? Easy. She kidnaps a guy in a bank parking lot. And her luck may be running true to form. Trevor, her "victim," is just a little too worldly, knows a bit too much about guns, helicopters and lock-picking, and is really good looking.Read more ›
If you like Stephanie Plum or Bree MacGowan you're going to love Toni McGee Causey's Bobbie Faye! I was a bit worried for the first couple of pages because I had no idea what was coming. But about the time we're introduced to Roy, Bobbie Faye's brother, the action kicks in and it's non-stop action with plenty of F-bombs and snark to keep you smiling.
I don't review books often, or especially well, but I can't help but tell you about Bobbie Faye. She's likable and loyal and nowhere close to perfect - just the kind of gal I can relate to. In fact I can't help but think a few wrong turns and my life could be hers. Anyway...
The writing is especially good. I can't remember one time when the language or writing dropped me out of the story. Toni has a grasp on storytelling and she doesn't let the words get in the way. The writing is clean and crisp and carries the story along without a hitch. In fact, if the writing wasn't excellent I think I may have questioned the story line as slightly implausible, but I didn't. Toni's writing took me all the way to the end and I was delighted with the hilarious plot twists.
I also liked that I couldn't really tell who the man in Bobbie Faye's life would be until the very end. I wasn't certain how things would turn out, and that kept me reading way past my bedtime. But the read was well worth it and I'm glad I jumped Bobbie Faye's Very (very, very, very) Bad Day to the top of my TBR pile

I give this book three and a half stars. This is another book that I wouldn't have read if it wasn't for my book club. It was cute and funny but a bit predictable. Read morePublished 11 months ago by Wendy D.
