Bobbie Faye Sumrall just landed in a mess of trouble. It started when she agreed to help her diva cousin, Francesca. Turns out Francesca's mom, Marie, swiped a fortune in gems from Bobbie Faye's uncle, who'd swiped them from someone else. Now there's a hit out on Marie, and Bobbie Faye is racing to find herand the jewels.
Plenty of people would shoot Bobbie Faye for a stash of diamonds. Hell, some would pay for the privilege. But now Bobbie Faye has other distractionsincluding Trevor, the drop-dead-sexy FBI agent who may or may not be the real deal, and Cam, her steamy (and steamed) detective ex-boyfriend who'd do anything to keep Bobbie Faye out of harm's way... and get her back into his arms.

"Cajun beauty Bobbie Faye Sumrall is back...Causey roared into the book world with Charmed and Dangerous and now takes readers on another thrilling roller-coaster ride in this fast, feisty, and ferociously funny novel."
—Booklist (starred review)
"The folks of Lake Charles, La., are still recovering from Bobbie Faye Sumrall's first explosive adventure, Charmed and Dangerous when Francesca Despre, Bobbie Faye's cousin, demands her assistance in recovering valuable diamonds Francesca's eccentric artist mother, Marie, hid before vanishing in this rollicking sequel. Supposedly, Emile, Marie's estranged husband, has put a hit out on Marie in the event the diamonds aren't recovered. The Department of Homeland Security is also interestedditto assorted international criminals. Reluctant to get involved, Bobbie Faye winds up getting abducted by some thugs and is later rescued by the dashing Trevor Cormier, an undercover FBI agent. Meanwhile, Det. Cameron Moreau, Bobbie Faye's old boyfriend, investigates the shooting of a local jeweler that could land Bobby Faye in jail. Though the pace is almost too fast and frantic, Causey's masterful depiction of Cajun country and Bobbie Faye's irrepressible spirit redeem this colorful caper."
"Toni McGee Causey doesn't just write. She takes prisoners. She grabs you by the heart and the funny bone and carries you off into a world of captivating characters, that are a whole bunch of crazy and twice as much fun. Don't try to sleep—you'll be laughing too loud."
—Marshall Karp, author of Bloodthirsty and The Rabbit Factory
"If you're a fan of Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum, this is a treat for you. Bobbie Faye is another wise-cracking gal with a knack for getting in trouble. The novel is fast paced, while the mystery keeps you guessing. If you're up for a fast-paced book, however, this is one you won't want to miss."
—Romantic Times, 4 stars
"If you're in the mood for something fresh, edgyand often downright hilarious as Bobbie Faye shares her take on life, love and the world in general then you won't go wrong with Girls Just Wanna Have Guns. It's a sassily written, high-spirited caper brimming with marvellously eccentric characters, crackerjack plotting, non-stop action and plenty of regional Cajun flavour, a spicy blend that will leave readers begging for the next installment."
"I've sufficiently recovered, loosely translated that means I'm not doubled over and light-headed from all the laughing I did while reading Bobbie Faye Sumrall's most recent adventure. I can now speak without gulping air, but I must focus on curtailing said laughter when I think about Girls Just Wanna Have Guns. What's the hilarity about? Toni McGee Causey's wild, wacky (quirky doesn't do it justice) wonderful world of Bobbie Faye, that's what."
"Girls Just Wanna Have Gunsis a fast-paced, can't put it down novel full of great chase scenes, lots of gun play and steamy scenes between Bobbie Faye and her new maybe boyfriend, FBI agent and bodyguard for Emile. The chases are as frenetic and chaotic as a heart-pounding action movie and yet the plot moves seamlessly from one scene to another. The dialogue is quick, witty, sarcastic, and laugh-out-loud funny... A cross between Carl Hiaasen and Dave Barry, Toni McGee Causey has a unique style that is a blast to read. I can't wait to get my hands on the next adventure starring Bobbie Faye."
"Bobbie Faye Sumrall is BACK! The Contraband Queen's life is barely returning to normal, whatever that might be, when she is caught in a shoot out as she's trying to talk a sweet little old lady out of buying a gun. Narrowly able to escape without adding a few extra holes to her body, she is nabbed by a would-be kidnapper. When the would-be kidnapping process is repeated more than once, Bobbie Faye is more than peeved. She's ready to kill someone! Toni McGee Causey has brought back the ever-crazy Bobbie Faye and taken her to new heights (literally)! Once again chaos meets laugh your pants off humor, in the very best of ways. I can only say that I hate (CAN'T WAIT) to see what Toni (and Bobbie Faye) are up to next!"
