A trilogy by Toni [=McGee=] Causey about Bobbie Faye Sumrall, a WalkingDisasterArea of a woman who lives in Louisiana. The first book starts with her trailer flooding - on the same day that her brother Ray is kidnapped AND CPS is coming by to make sure she's taking care of her lush little sister's five-year-old.

The first two books were named ''Bobbie Faye's Very (very very very) Bad Day'' and ''Bobbie Faye's (kinda, sorta, not exactly) Family Jewels.'' The publishers decided to rebrand the series (much to some people's disappointment) and rename the books:

* ''Charmed and Dangerous'' (2007)
* ''Girls Just Wanna Have Guns'' (2008)
* ''When A Man Loves A Weapon'' (2009)
* ''Bobby Faye's Whacked Out, No Good, Really Sucky, Hot Mess of a Wedding'' (2012)

----
!!Contains examples of:

* BlindSeer: Bobbie Faye's aunt is one.
* DisappearedDad
* HollywoodVoodoo: done by Bobbie Faye's boss in order to help her. It gets weird.
* ITakeOffenseToThatLastOne: Trevor comments on Bobbie Faye blowing things up. She responds that she hasn't...then pauses, and adds, 'lately'. [[SarcasmMode Needless to say, it fills him with confidence.]]
* LoveTriangle: Bobbie Faye, her ex Cameron, and Trevor.
* TooSpicyForYogSothoth: "Not only no, but hell no. We already had the Alamo, we don't need Bobbie Faye." - The Governor of Texas, on the phone with the governor of Louisiana. (chapter title)
* WalkingDisasterArea: The TropeCodifier. Every chapter has a different quote from someone who has survived her - her luck is bad for her and her surroundings.
** Things she has done: Had the 4H cattle of her high school stampede ''in the same year she blew up/burned down the chemistry lab''. She also caused a huge bonfire for a school spirit contest (and ''got away with it'', since apparently football is second only to oxygen in Louisiana), helped/led to a grain silo BLOWING UP, shot a truck multiple times (it ended up at the bottom of a lake, although she wasn't DIRECTLY responsible...), accidentally (really) abetted a bank robbery...and a lot more I can't quite remember. Plus all the things listed in the chapter titles.
** What happened to her (and any stupid enough to stay in her blast radius): Woke up to find her brother kidnapped, her trailer flooded on the same day Social Services was coming by to make sure her niece was well-taken-care-of, had to chase after some bank robbers while under suspicion of helping them in order to rescue her brother (kidnapping a hottie [[spoiler:Federal Agent]] on the way)...
