Overview

"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."
- Booklist

What do you call a blonde skeleton in the closet?
Last year's hide-'n'-seek champ.

It's autumn in the heartland, where football rules, homecoming royalty reigns, and full moons don't just refer to a passing high school varsity bus. But this year, Tressa Jayne Turner isn't just enjoying the candy corn, popcorn balls and caramel apples. This reporter is on a mission to sniff out a serious story that will impress not only her skeptical family and friends, but also her boss at the Grandville Gazette.

And it turns out "Calamity Jayne" is in luck! Eccentric and reclusive bestselling writer, Elizabeth Courtney Howard is coming to little ol' Grandville to conduct some family business and finish her latest book. So, what's stopping Tressa from scoring this journalistic coup? A blackmailing, six-foot-two-inch homecoming queen candidate with all the charm of Frankenstein in taffeta, a rival reporter out to scoop the competition, a séance-hosting grandmother, and the sexy Ranger Rick Townsend who could tempt a nun to rethink her vows. Suddenly Tressa better watch her step, as her exposé uncovers skeletons in everyone's closets and a haunted house that's too creepy for comfort.

(NOTE: This book was previously published under the title "Ghouls Just Want to Have Fun".)

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."

    Another great book in the series. The author continues to entertain while keeping you so interested that it is hard to put the book down. Looking forward to the nest in the series.

    great!

    I loved the first book, but the second disappointed me because it had so many errors that should have been edited out that it was hard to read and the humor fell a bit flat. I am happy to see that, although there were still a few errors that should have been edited in this one, they weren't so bad that you couldn't follow the story. The plot was top notch in this one and the humor witty. The author has a style all her own, and now that I see the nonexistent editing in the last book which made the storyline difficult to follow was apparently just a glitch, I hope to find the next story just as entertaining. Note to the author: this is great stuff you're writing! Please read them through again and give them the editing such great works of art deserve!

    Book 3 of the series with a new cover and name (was Ghouls just want to have fun). 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!
