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
