Bobbie Faye’s Very (very, very, very) Bad Day – A Review

If you like Stephanie Plum or Bree MacGowan you’re going to love Toni McGee Causey’s Bobbie Faye! I was a bit worried for the first couple of pages because I had no idea what was coming. But about the time we’re introduced to Roy, Bobbie Faye’s brother, the action kicks in and it’s non-stop action with plenty of F-bombs and snark to keep you smiling.

I don’t review books often, or especially well, but I can’t help but tell you about Bobbie Faye. She’s likable and loyal and nowhere close to perfect – just the kind of gal I can relate to. In fact I can’t help but think a few wrong turns and my life could be hers. Anyway…

The writing is especially good. I can’t remember one time when the language or writing dropped me out of the story. Toni has a grasp on storytelling and she doesn’t let the words get in the way. The writing is clean and crisp and carries the story along without a hitch. In fact, if the writing wasn’t excellent I think I may have questioned the story line as slightly implausible, but I didn’t. Toni’s writing took me all the way to the end and I was delighted with the hilarious plot twists.

I also liked that I couldn’t really tell who the man in Bobbie Faye’s life would be until the very end. I wasn’t certain how things would turn out, and that kept me reading way past my bedtime. But the read was well worth it and I’m glad I jumped Bobbie Faye’s Very (very, very, very) Bad Day to the top of my TBR pile

I really tried — twice! — to read this book. First, because the writing was excellent. Second, because it was by someone I know a bit over the interwebz. But I just couldn’t. Maybe I just couldn’t handle all the very bad things happening to her. I’m afraid that I end up getting too anxious and worried, rather than being able to enjoy the wild ride. So this kind of crazy ride is definitely not my type. But I do know plenty of people (including my dearly departed mother) who loved this book very much. So it’s nothing against the book at all. It’s just about me. I’m so glad you are another of the fans of it.
