HOW DOES A BLONDE SPELL “FARM”?
Tressa Jayne Turner has had it up to here with the never ending string of dumb-blonde jokes and her longtime nickname that’s harder to get rid of than lint from a belly button. Crowned “Calamity Jayne” by Iowa Department of Natural Resources officer, Rick Townsend, Tressa’s out to gain a little hometown respect -- or die trying. Unfortunately for Tressa, that may be the case. She’s been handed the perfect opportunity to get “Ranger Rick,” the doubting Don Juan of the DNR, and a skeptical citizenry to finally take her seriously. How? By solving a murder no one else believes happened. No one, that is, except the killer.
Yup, Calamity Jayne is in it up to her hot pink snakeskin cowgirl boots and matching rhinestone belt -- and it’s a matter of life and death, respect and reputation, love, happiness, and the whole shebang. Tressa would tell you her momma never raised no dummies, but the jury’s still out on that one. And as she has learned in her work at the Dairee Freeze: Sometimes life hands you a big, sloppy ice cream cone. You just have to know how to lick it.
