A Woman’s Guide to Mischief and Mayhem

By Colleen Hybl

“Whose idea was it to drive through alligator infested waters with someone shooting bullets at us?!” 

Yes, bullets, gators, and other assorted items of chaos, mischief, and mayhem are contained within these books. We start things off with the unofficial queen of chaos herself. 

Anybody who’s anybody in Louisiana knows Bobbie Faye. Bobbie Faye is one woman who attracts danger and mayhem that would put a daredevil to shame. Her day starts out pretty ordinary, until her brother gets kidnapped, his kidnappers want her family’s tiara, she becomes embroiled in organized crime, the police are on her tail, and she tries to keep custody of her niece. Can it get worse? Yes, it can in Bobbie Faye's Very (very, Very, Very) Bad Day, opens a new window, which is the start of Bobbie Faye’s adventures. 

CIA Agent Fortune Redding is hiding out in Sinful, Louisiana, in Louisiana Longshot, opens a new window after a mission goes sideways. Sinful seems to be a small, peaceful town—a good place to let everything blow over, but that is far from the case when the dog she inherited digs up a human bone. With the help of two old ladies who seem to run Sinful, Fortune is going to solve the murder before the deputy blows her cover, but she has to contend with a banana pudding feud and the strange laws of Sinful. This is the first book in the Miss Fortune Mystery series. 

Stephanie Plum leaves the world of retail to become a bonds agent, but it is far from easy. Her first assignment is to go after a former vice cop and someone from her past in One for the Money, opens a new window. With cars blowing up and a wayward grandma, Stephanie’s job to apprehend her assignment may take a detour that she did not see coming. This is the first book in the Stephanie Plum series. 

I hope you will get hooked by one of these books, but watch out for the alligators, bullets, and exploding vehicles!
