This is the latest adventures of Tressa Jayne Turner aka Calamity Jayne. These are light, funny books written with tongue firmly in cheek. Tressa is a twenty something trying to figure out what she is going to be when she grows up which doesn't look to be to soon. She has a vivid imagination and a twisted sense of humor. That is the fun of the book. Surrounded by a group of quirky characters she always manages to figure out the mystery (after much mayhem ensues).
Ms. Bacus has a light and humorous style which is a joy to read. She loves puns, blond jokes, homilies and colloquialisms not to mention the occasional alliteration. In short she has a wicked sense of humor and a talent for putting it on the printed page. My wife always knows when I am reading one of her books as I am snickering all the way through. Reading Kathleen's books you can imagine having a conversation with her and her alter ego Calamity. I think it would be something like a cross of Lucille Ball, Carol Burnett and Gracie Allen.
Each book stands alone but if you are a little OCD like me you will want to read them in order.
In this installment of the series Tressa's crazy life gets crazier due to a peek-a-boo playing lawn gnome, hot pink tornado's, aliens, high school "mean girl" cheer leaders, a relative with a secret who is not quite what they seem and her "always looking for an adventure" Grandma and step-Grandpa (as well as the rest of her family). Full of mystery, romance and of course Tressa's "Calamity-Like" adventures, this book is a Must Read!!!! I could not put it down and was up until 2:30am finishing it.
Although 8th in the series, this book can be read as a stand alone (Kathleen does an amazing job clarifying references to things from previous books with short and concise synopses when needed). Although, if you love this book and characters as much as I did, you will want to read all of the books in the series. You won't be disappointed!!!
