(The eighth book in the Tressa Jayne Turner series)
A novel by

 
What do you call a fly in a blonde's brain?
A space invader.

Ace Cub Reporter Tressa "Calamity" Jayne Turner is back in Grandville and ready to enjoy the slower pace of with small town life and begin building a dating resume with one handsome ranger. It's Frontier Days at the Historical Village, but mischief's afoot - of the malicious variety - when vandals target the area, stealing and damaging property and leaving behind spray-painted signatures in the form of hot pink tornadoes.

So what else besides a gang of local thugs threatens Knox County's frontier festivities? Only a cross-dressing aunt bent on a reunion "gotcha," two-relationships in crisis, three dates from hell, an eccentric local with an ET obsession, five burning questions for a man-o'-mystery, and a missing lawn gnome that makes Chucky seem benevolent by comparison.

It's a countdown to a showdown where strange lights in the sky, "signs" on the trees, and horses of a different color are only the beginning of this close encounter of the Calamity Jayne kind. And Tressa Jayne? She's ready to believe.

What critics are saying about the Calamity Jayne Mysteries:

"Filled with dumb-blonde jokes, nonstop action and rapid-fire banter, this is a perfect read for chick-lit fans who enjoy a dash of mystery."
~ Publishers' Weekly

"Fun and lighthearted with an interesting mystery, a light touch of romance and some fascinating characters."
~ RT Book Reviews

"Throw in two parts Nancy Drew, one part Lucille Ball, add a dash of Stephanie Plum, shake it all up and you've got a one-of-a-kind amateur sleuth with a penchant for junk food and hot-pink snakeskin cowgirl boots. A word to the wise: if you're prone to laughing out loud when reading funny books, try not to read Calamity Jayne when you're sandwiched between two sleeping passengers on an airplane... sometimes we learn these things the hard way."
~ Chick Lit Cafe

"Bacus provides lots of small-town fun with this lovable, fair-haired klutz and lively story, liberally salted with dumb-blond jokes."
~ Booklist *starred review*
