Bobbie Faye Sumrall knows that a day without disaster is a day in someone else's life. Criminals have kidnapped her good-for-nothing brother and are demanding her Contraband Queen tiara--the only thing of her mama's she inherited--as random. So Bobbie Faye has to outwit the police, organized crime, former boyfriends, and a hostage she never intended to take (but who turns out to be damn sexy!), in order to rescue her brother, keep custody of her niece, and get back in time to take her place as Queen in the Lake Charles Contraband Festival (think Mardi Gras, with more drinking and pirates). Luckily, Bobbie Faye knows how to handle guns, outsmart angry mama bears, drive a speedboat, and get herself out of--and into--almost every kind of trouble. If only that pesky state police detective (who also happens to be a pissed-off ex-boyfriend) would stay out of her way . . .

She is southern fried, hot headed, stubborn and smart and willing to face whatever she has too full on. Her love life is a mess, her home life is a me...
This was a non-brain stretching read. Which is exactly what I was looking for. Fluff, but with lots of explosions, varieties of the F word, and more than one hot law enforcement official: really how can you go wrong? Reread, 1-8-13: Mostly because I didn't know it was republished as Charmed & Dan...
I was pleasantly surprised to discover this was not a romance, since it seemed to be billed as one. I would class this as a combination of mystery and "chick lit", since it was much more focused on the humor and adventure. A fun, easy read, very humorous and engaging.
