Thursday is “Reader Question Day” on Maryse’s Book Blog, and here is one that our Facebook crew was able to answer, and the reader is thrilled! So I thought I’d share it with my crew right here, ’cause a few on Facebook really wanted to know it, too. And OMG it sounds SO GOOD!!!

This one sounds like fun!

Maryse: GUESS THE BOOK TIME!! Gillian has a book title question. She asks:

“Can you help me out with a title. It’s a fairly new release about a girl who drunkenly buys a house in Scotland to get away from her cheating ex. I believe there is a Scottish policeman who gets swept up in her adventures. Thanks!”

Anyone wanna venture a guess? :D

Barbara: I have no clue but I’d like to know :D

Wendy: Yes I would like to know too!

Rebecka: Calamity Jena?

Gillian: Thank you, thank you! This is it.

Maryse: YAY!!! Thank you Rebecka!!! :)

LOL!!! OMG I just read the blurb. It sounds like SO MUCH FUN!!! SO she walks in on her mobster-man cheating on her, so she’s freaked out and…

…she drank a bottle of tequila and bought a house off the internet. A house far away from her cheating, criminal of an ex-boyfriend. A house in Scotland. As soon as she turns up to claim her new home, Jena finds out exactly why you shouldn’t ‘one-click’ houses while falling-down drunk. It was a dump. With no money, and no skills outside of shaking her booty, Jena does the only thing she can do—she throws herself into the biggest DIY project the Highlands have ever seen.

Since Jena’s arrival in town, Officer Matt Donaldson’s workload has tripled. The woman is a menace, gorgeous yes, but definitely a few sandwiches short of a picnic. Her only discernible skill seems to be causing chaos wherever she goes. She attracts trouble like honey attracts bears. Which is why Matt isn’t surprised when her ex-boyfriend turns out to be a member of the New Jersey mob…

Tilly: Calamity Jena is number 4 in the series. Is it a standalone or should i read the other first?

Maryse’s Book Blog: Tilly!! YAY!!! I finally found the answer, and YES!! It IS a standalone (from the author’s website, she says: “This is book 4 in the Invertary series, but can be read as a standalone novel.”) I gotta read this! :D
