Calamity Jayne and the Sisterhood of the Traveling Lawn GnomeeBook - 2015
What do you call a fly in a blonde's brain?A space invader. Ace Cub Reporter Tressa "Calamity" Jayne Turner is back in Grandville and ready to enjoy the slower pace of with small town life and begin building a dating resume with one handsome ranger. It's Frontier Days at the Historical Village, but mischief's afoot-of the malicious variety-when vandals target the area, stealing and damaging property and leaving behind spray-painted signatures in the form of hot pink tornadoes. So what else besides a gang of local thugs threatens Knox County's frontier festivities? Only a cross-dressing aunt bent on a reunion "gotcha," two-relationships in crisis, three dates from hell, an eccentric local with an ET obsession, five burning questions for a man-o'-mystery, and a missing lawn gnome that makes Chucky seem benevolent by comparison. It's a countdown to a showdown where strange lights in the sky, "signs" on the trees, and horses of a different color are only the beginning of this close encounter of the Calamity Jayne kind. And Tressa Jayne? She's ready to believe.
