Overview

What does a blonde get on her intelligence test?
Drool.

Ace cub reporter Tressa Jayne Turner is carrying a full load—and we're not talking post-holiday pounds. Back in college for the fourth time (but who's counting!?), "Calamity Jayne" is looking to nab a raise from her stingy boss at the Gazette, Stan. So, what's to stop her from making the grade?
Well, for starters her grandmother turned roommate rekindling an old flame, maid of honor madness run amok, a botched betrothal that's more than just schoolyard gossip, and a campus criminal who is out to teach the student body a lesson... one crime at a time. As Tressa navigates the halls of higher education, she finds herself torn not only between homework and investigating, but also between a man who likes her for herself and another man who wants to save her from herself.
It's a case of murder and mayhem by the books...and failure is so not an option.

Editorial Reviews

RT Book Reviews
"Fun and lighthearted with an interesting mystery, a light touch of romance and some fascinating characters."
Booklist - _ _
"Fans of Janet Evanovich will be glad to see that you don't always have to go to the burgh for mirthful murder and mayhem."
Chick Lit Cafe
"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."

    Book 4 of the series with a new cover and name (was Calamity Jay

    Book 4 of the series with a new cover and name (was Calamity Jayne goes to college). Just wanted to rate this book since it shows no ratings now with the new title. Anyway, I love this series! I laughed out loud and couldn't stop reading it, I immediately bought the next in the series (and again and again until I had worked my way through the whole series to date). Then I got my mom hooked too ;) If you like to laugh with your mystery you will enjoy this series!

    RIP OFF

    New artwork and title but it's the same book as Calamity Jane goes to college. Wasted my money on something I already had.

    The author did it again. Another great read. The books in this

    The author did it again. Another great read. The books in this series just keeps me laughing and the story lines make it hard to put down them down. I do wish her an Rick would become an item though, instead of this back and forth.
