She's an outrageous hoot."--The New Orleans Times-Picayune "Bobbie Faye, Southern, eloquent, kick-ass, highly accomplished and just plain nuts, is a magnet for the most colorful collection of riff-raff and the most sexually compelling males south of Minneapolis. Throw in an unlikely MacGuffin and you've got a very, (very, very, very) entertaining book."--Harley Jane Kozak, Agatha, Anthony, and Macavity award-winning author of Dating Dead Men It had been a whole freaking month since Bobbie Faye Sumrall had blown up anything or been shot at, and that was almost a new record.
