Welcome ​to 1876 and a rootin’-tootin’ America bursting with gunslingers, outlaws, and garou.

JANE (a genuine hero-eene)

Calamity’s her name, and garou hunting’s her game—when she’s not starring in Wild Bill’s Traveling Show, that is. She reckons that if a girl wants to be a legend, she should just go ahead and be one.

I love the cover and the synopsis has me pumped!

Give me this book ASAP 😍

Wait what!? I literally just found out about My Plain Jane like a few hours ago, and now I see we will not only be getting one more book from this brilliant trio but two!? Woah this is like Christmas in July! I am starting to think they'll just do a retelling for every famous Jane we know, and you know what? I am totally fine with that ;D

The cover was not orange and green, but I’m still really happy with this book! Western, our Lady Janies’ humor, talking dogs, were-umm, garous, and loads of history to be straightened out! Absolutely outstanding!

I'm calling this cover to be orange and green. If it's not, the rainbow will not be complete and I'll be sad.

THIS IS AMAZING OMGSH I CAN JUST NOT WAIT.

I am squealing like a pig over here. A remake of Calamity Jane you say?! That's my favourite film - well that and Goonies!
Lenna • Sugar Dusted Pages
So, um, I really need this - like now.
But I have one question. How will "Calamity" fit on the cover? My Lady Jane and My Plain Jane both fit, but there won't be space for the word Calamity.

These are the kinds of things I wonder about, apparently.

Let's be honest, My Plain Jane was terrible but I love these authors and this series enough to shoulder on an read the third book. Hopefully, it's better than the last one.

A wild ride from start to finish, My Calamity Jane soars with daredevil heroes (and “hero-eenes” for that matter!), buck-wild action that gallops off the page, and a genuine look at romance, friendship, and family set amongst the Wild West. I haven’t had this much fun with a series in a long time!

Just as with all the Lady Janies novels, My Calamity Jane’s biggest asset lies within its heroes and heroines of the plains. Jane, Annie, and Frank create a dynamic trio with so many hijinks, antics, an

This book is so fun. Westerns in general just are, but werewolves, and six shooters, and feminism, oh my! I love the foray into Deadwood, the real live people references and how we get to see all of our favorite historical characters twisted together in this book :)

Loved every word!

My only complaint is the date says 2020 which has to be a mistake

Okay, so maybe I thought My Lady Jane was only okay, and maybe I DNF-ed My Plain Jane , but like, who could read the blurb of this book and not want to read it?!

NOOOO. My review disappeared! I swear Goodreads keeps glitching on me!

Alright, well, I guess this will be short! I'm not usually one for westerns, but these women know how to write a comedic retelling! I really enjoyed the characters they brought to life, the setting, and, of course, the jokes!

The romance is there, for a few characters, actually, but as always it's only a portion of the story! I really wish my original review were here, because I spent os long perfecting it. Alas~~~

Just know if
