The 4th book in the Calamity Jayne series. I was a little let down with the 3rd book, but this was a vast improvement. Tressa plays investigator with her cousin, Frankie, and his fiancee, Dixie, who also happens to be Tressa's arch-nemesis. Someone on campus is committing crimes that follow the lectures in one of Frankie and Dixie's classes. Tressa needs a story for her investigative reporting class, so off they go looking for the criminal. The mystery is a little weak to me (I had it figured ou...more

Since she's a local newspaper reporter, Tressa is taking journalism classes and eager for a great assignment. She's very interested in her frie...more
There's a crime wave at little Carson college, and the crimes seem to be linked to the criminal justice lectures professor Billings gives. Tressa Jayne Turner, who's taking a few journalism courses there, sees her chance to get an A in a course, and a scoop for the small town paper where she works. Naturally, there's more going on in her life, like three guys who seem interested, one bride's maid gown that may be a little too tight, and a few other problems like that. I'd enjoy this series bette...more

It took me a while to get into this book; I almost started another book in the middle of this book it took so long. However, I got about halfway into it and realized that I was actually enjoying it more than I expected. (view spoiler) I will be reading the next book; this one kind of ended in a cliff hanger!
I am a big fan of Janet Evanovich and her Stephanie Plum series. I was really wanting to like this series but I just didn't like Jayne. She is just too annoying for me to enjoy. I guess I'm too old for this series. The book is put together well and the mystery is OK but not spectacular so I'll skip my review on this one.
This series is so frustrating sometimes. Manny and his Aunt Mo are killing me. Tressa lying to Rick.... I just want to finish the last two. If it doesn't end with Tressa and Rick happily ever after, I'll be ticked.
Yes, there is something about these books, yet I keep reading them. I like Calamity and have to admit Rick was better in this one, but the competition will do him some good. On to the next.

I just did not care for - ugly sense of humor but then, I don't care for Janet Evanovich's books so..........guess it was my mistake for picking it up!
This one cracked me up. Especially during Kari's wedding. Lol!! Probably my favorite so far.
This has been my favorite of the series so far. These books are just hilarious.
So many funny moments that had me laughing out loud!
Cute series. Great for a quick light read.
Fun, easy read in the series.
My new purse book.
