Bobbie Faye's (Very, Very, Very) Bad Day (20"/>

Bobbie Faye's (Kinda, Sorta, Not Exactly) Family Jewels

Toni McGee Causey, Author . St. Martin's Griffin $13.95 (334p) ISBN 978-0-312-35450-3

The folks of Lake Charles, La., are still recovering from Bobbie Faye Sumrall's first explosive adventure, Bobbie Faye's (Very, Very, Very) Bad Day (2007), when Francesca Despré, Bobbie Faye's cousin, demands her assistance in recovering valuable diamonds Francesca's eccentric artist mother, Marie, hid before vanishing in this rollicking sequel. Supposedly, Emile, Marie's estranged husband, has put a hit out on Marie in the event the diamonds aren't recovered. The Department of Homeland Security is also interested—ditto assorted international criminals. Reluctant to get involved, Bobbie Faye winds up getting abducted by some thugs and is later rescued by the dashing Trevor Cormier, an undercover FBI agent. Meanwhile, Det. Cameron Moreau, Bobbie Faye's old boyfriend, investigates the shooting of a local jeweler that could land Bobby Faye in jail. Though the pace is almost too fast and frantic, Causey's masterful depiction of Cajun country and Bobbie Faye's irrepressible spirit redeem this colorful caper. (June)
