Overview

What do you call a blonde in a freezer?
A frosted flake.

Tressa Jayne Turner, known in her hometown as "Calamity Jayne" for her unconventional exploits, is the newest reporter at the Grandville Gazette. And after a whirlwind start to her new job, she's ready to enjoy the final weeks of summer at The Iowa State Fair. The homegrown good-time is Tressa's favorite time of year—donuts, funnel cakes, cotton candy, turkey legs. It's also her Uncle Frank's busiest. His ice cream stand is in a prime location, and he's poised to scoop the competition. But when a soft-serve saboteur appears at the same time her cousin goes missing, it's another fine, sticky mess she's gotten herself into.
With a string of malicious pranks, psycho dunk-tank clowns, two geriatric Jessica Fletcher wannabes, one hot state trooper, and a guy in a chicken suit, it's mayhem on the midway! Throw in one Ranger Rick Townsend, the Don Juan of the Department of Natural Resources and bestower of the hated "Calamity Jayne" moniker, and Tressa's got her hands full! The only question is, can she solve the crime and save the day... or will this blonde be enjoying her final fair?

(NOTE: This book was previously published under the title "Calamity Jayne Rides Again".)

Editorial Reviews

Reviews - Publishers' Weekly
"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."
Cafe - Chick Lit
"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."
Reviews - Booklist Book
"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."
Reviews - RT Book
"Fun and lighthearted with an interesting mystery, a light touch of romance and some fascinating characters."

Kathy's unconventional path to publication can certainly be described as the "road less traveled." A pioneer for women in law enforcement, she was one of the first female state troopers in Iowa, and she learned two valuable lessons that have served her well in her pursuit of a professional writing career: never give up and never stop laughing.

    Book 2 of the series with a new cover and name (was Calamity Jay

    Book 2 of the series with a new cover and name (was Calamity Jayne Rides again). 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!

    Wow! These books are so much fun. There is nothing better than a fun book after a long stressful work day. And, these books have become my new "Calgon". Thanks for the laugh out loud moments and terrific characters!

    A must Read. I am loving this series. Again the author held my attention and gave me great entertainment. I never feel ripped off when buying her books for this series, which I can't say about other authors that I have bought book by. I hope she keeps writing for this series.
