Calamity Jayne Heads West
Did you hear about the blonde coyote?
It got stuck in a trap, chewed off three legs, and was still stuck.
Tressa Jayne Turner, Grandville Iowa’s own little “Calamity,” is headed for the Grand Canyon State—and a wedding! No, not her own. She hasn’t said yes to the Roguish Ranger Rick, but after the past year some downtime in a sweat lodge is just what the shaman ordered.
Unfortunately, it’s her goofy gammy getting’ hitched, and Tressa’s sunny little siesta is about to have more strings attached than a dream catcher. Her cousin’s keeping secrets, Rick’s sending signals—more of the smokin’ than smoke variety—and it seems Tressa’s not the only person with an attachment to “Kookamunga”, the butt-ugly fertility figurine she picked up at a roadside stand as a wedding gift. The wacky wedding’s about to become a southwestern scavenger hunt, an amazing race-meets-the-Da Vinci Code-Wild West-intrigue featuring a washed-up actress out to kick-start her career, a suspect spiritual advisor, locals with a cause, and a ten-year-old who’s a chip off a certain ranger’s blockhead.
It’ll be a vision quest to make Thelma and Louise’s southwestern spree seem like amateur night at the OK Corral.
May the best spirit guide win.
