Calamity Jayne Rides Again

( 38 )

Overview

Two months ago, 23-year-old Tressa Jayne Turner knew just where she stood with "Ranger Rick" Townsend. Sure, he’s what you’d call hott with two t’s, but he’s also responsible for her nickname "Calamity." And ever since they solved that murder last summer-ever since Rick saved her cookies-he’s acted as if he has a god-given right to sample them.

Of course, Tressa has bigger frenches to fry. The Iowa state fair is about to start, and her uncle Frank’s ice cream stand is poised to ...

Overview

Two months ago, 23-year-old Tressa Jayne Turner knew just where she stood with "Ranger Rick" Townsend. Sure, he’s what you’d call hott with two t’s, but he’s also responsible for her nickname "Calamity." And ever since they solved that murder last summer-ever since Rick saved her cookies-he’s acted as if he has a god-given right to sample them.

Of course, Tressa has bigger frenches to fry. The Iowa state fair is about to start, and her uncle Frank’s ice cream stand is poised to scoop the competition. So when a soft-serve saboteur appears at the same time her cousin goes missing, it’s another fine sticky mess. It’s time for Tressa to don her hot pink cowboy boots and solve the mystery.

The mother of triplets, Kathleen began writing when she was homebound with four children under the age of three.

Chapter One


I made my way to the mini-freeze via the 'Guess Your Weight or
Age' booth. I wanted to check out how much weight I'd gained
since last year. Sorry folks. That info is not for public
dissemination. I stopped by Tony's Taffy to say howdy do. Of
course, I had to sample each of the flavors and try this
year's new flavor, French Vanilla cappuccino. A big, but
sticky, thumbs up! I grabbed a corn dog from Carl, lemonade
from Louie, and a caramel apple from Ada. By the time I got to
Uncle Frank's, I was ready for the antacid stand.

I frowned when I saw the long line snaking its way down the
sidewalk outside the mini-freeze. What was Frankfurter doing,
anyway, the little wiener? The line was longer than the one at
the beer tent on fifty cent draw night.

I hustled to the back of the tiny, white square building about
the size of a one-half car garage, jerked the door open, and
stepped inside.

"What the heck is going on, Frankie?" I asked the figure in
the white cotton, his back to me. "You've got customers lined
up from here to the pretzel place next door. What's the deal?"

"I owe you an apology, Calamity," a tall figure in white
struggling to construct something that resembled an ice cream
cone, said. "These damned curly que's are not as easy to make
as I thought."

I took a step back. My jaw did a trap-door motion. I gasped as
the man in white turned and slapped a soggy, misshapen cone in
my hand.

"I quit."

I looked up from the drippy mess oozing down my wrist to the
kaleidoscope of color splashed across the front of the white
apron across from me.

"Ranger Rick?" I stared at the gooey, ice-cream covered man.
"What are you doing here?"

"I'm splitting this pop shack," he said, pulling off his
apron. "And pronto."

I shook my head trying to process the picture of the tall,
dark, and deadly handsome ranger splitting bananas and
drizzling nuts.

"You look good in confections," was all I could think to say.

"Hell," he managed.

"What are you doing here?" I asked again. "Where's Frankie?"

"How should I know? I came over to get a damned dip cone and
the place was unlocked, open for business, but empty as that
greasy egg roll stand across the way. I figured Frankie
stepped out to use the john, but I've been manning the order
window for two freaking hours!" The ranger threw the apron on
the counter. "I'm outta here."

"Hey! What? Where are you going?"

"Back to the comfortable and familiar world of reptiles,
raptors, and rangers. And as far as I'm concerned, if I never
see another freaking ice cream cone, it will be okay by me."
He headed toward the exit.

"Hey, Mr. Ranger, sir!" I yelled. "You forgot your dip cone!"
I giggled a bit and then caught a look at the line of angry
customers with facial expressions reminiscent of a group of
disappointed sports fans about to tip something over. Or
democrats after the 2004 presidential election. I sobered.

Where the devil was that Oscar Meyer, anyway?

    A fun lighthearted mystery

    Local author and store clerk Tressa Jayne Turner is concerned with all the things going wrong at her family¿s ice cream booth at the Iowa State Fair. First her cousin who was to dish out ice cream has gone missing. Second the food concession has come under assault from a horde of invading cockroaches and angry patrons ready to switch loyalty to the soft competitor.------------- Tressa knows someone is sabotaging her Uncle Frank¿s concession stand, but who and why is not readily available nor why her cousin seems to have vanished. Determined as ever, Tressa assumes the ice cream sales business has turned cutthroat so she begins sleuthing looking critically at her Uncle¿s rivals. Meanwhile her nemesis ¿Ranger Rick Townsend seems more interested this time with her sister than interfering (her thoughts) than helping (his thoughts) as they did in her recent escapade (see CALAMITY JANE). Of course state trooper P.D. Dawkins tells Tressa to not make any inquiries, but what¿s a girl to do when she finds the cop a hunk, her cousin, and the business melting away simple investigate Calamity Jane style.------------------ This is a fun lighthearted mystery starring an amiable heroine who finds ways to dive head first into trouble and make problems that much worse as she adds chaos to a chaotic situation. The story line is fast-paced as Tressa comes to the rescue of Uncle Frank, who pleads with his calamitous niece to not get involved as he ahs enough problems. The relationship with Ranger Rick takes another spin as the twenty-three year old Jayne seems to have a new love interest and so does he. Fans of humorous romps will enjoy CALAMITY JANE RIDES AGAIN.------------- Harriet Klausner

    Liked

    I call this series of books my guilty pleasure series. Comparable to Janet Evanovich books. Only funnier. Sometimes the numerous blonde jokes get old. The editing is not the best, but you gotta love a klutz. If you like this series, check out Camille Chafer's Lexie Graves series. You will love them. Chick book. Age 18 and up.

    Calamity Jayne Rides Again

    Loved this as much as the first one! I loved all of the random jokes throughout the book and I cannot get enough of Gram and Joe, they are amazing and hilarious! I love how much energy and spunk Tressa has! All the stuff she has to deal with would absolutely throttle me and wear me down quick, but she always manages to keep her head up and keep going!
