Calamity Jayne are Ebook I really enjoyed this book. I thought Tressa "Calamity" Jayne Turner was a great character. The author knew her inside and out so her voice was very strong - and extremly funny. There were many moments where I laughed out loud at Tressa's view on life and her place in it. Naturally a person jumps to compare this type of book (i.e. first person/witty/funny/crime solving heroine with a hot guy she loves/hates) with Janet Evanovich. Surprisingly I felt this book stacked up quite well because Tressa was a character so full of personality and life, and the plot well thoughtout and interesting. The male lead, Ranger Rick Townsend, was no Morelli but seriously folks, we all know there can only be one Morelli. I think the author laid some great ground work for the budding romance between Tressa and her older brother's best friend (and her childhood nemisis), Ranger Rick. The plot itself is a murder mystery with wannabe reporter, Tressa, trying to solve the case with the help of some good supporting characters. There are enough twists and turns to kept things interesting, I did however feel the author wrapped everything up very quickly in the end but not to the extent where it affected my enjoyment of the book. This book did lack a bit in the romance department but it had enough sexual tension between the leads to keep me coming back for more. I'm looking forward to the second installment. This is worth a read.. Tressa Jayne Turner has had it up to here with the never ending string of dumb blonde jokes and her longtime nickname Crowned Calamity Jayne by Iowa Department of Natural Resources officer Rick Townsend, Tressa s out to gain a little hometown respect or die trying Unfortunately for Tressa, that may be the case She s just been handed the perfect opportunity to get RTressa Jayne Turner has had it up to here with the never ending string of dumb blonde jokes and her longtime nickname Crowned Calamity Jayne by Iowa Department of Natural Resources officer Rick Townsend, Tressa s out to gain a little hometown respect or die trying Unfortunately for Tressa, that may be the case She s just been handed the perfect opportunity to get Ranger Rick, the doubting Don Juan of the DNR, and a skeptical citizenry to finally take her seriously How By solving a murder no one else believes happenedNo one, that is, except the killer.Yup, Calamity Jayne is in it up to her hot pink snakeskin cowgirl boots and matching rhinestone belt Tressa would tell you her momma never raised no dummies, but the jury s still out on that one.. Good Ebook Calamity Jayne After discovering a body in her car, a body that immediately disappears Jayne finds herself once again the butt of all jokes. But she knows there is a dead body out there somewhere and if there is a body there must also be a killer. She sets about investigating the murder in the hope that people will finally take her seriously. I'm not really sure. The author is trying to write a snappy and snarky comic mystery novel but it's a little too much and it only works half of the time. It's also a debut and honestly I can't be too critical of a first effort so I might reserve final judgement until I've read another book in the series.
