When I read that Kathleen Bacus was releasing a new Calamity Jayne book after a long hiatus, I did a dance of joy. Ms. Bacus is a clever writer using words, phrases, and cultural references creatively. At times she allows Tressa to address the audience directly with great effect. I love authors who are true wordsmiths and she is definitely that. Her books are populated with quirky, fun characters with whom you will enjoy spending time.
Calamity Jayne and the Trouble with Tandems is a stand alone novel. You do not have to read the previous six to enjoy it. However, I think you'll want to do so to see how it all started and to learn more about the characters. These books are highly entertaining and you'll have a rollicking good time reading them.
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.
I also thought there was too much Star Trek reference. I love the Star Trek, Star Wars and all science fiction shows, but this was way over the top for the plucky cow girl Tressa AKA Calamity Jayne. Made for a difficult read.
You don't have to read any of the others before reading this book, but I reread the first 6 to refresh my memory. Enjoyed them all again!
