Penguin Putnam
It doesn’t help that her name’s Bubbles. Or that she’s a gum-snapping hairdresser with Barbie-doll curves pinched into hot pants and a tube top. Or that she’s saddled with a sleazy ex-hubby, a precocious daughter and a shoplifting mother. What can a beautician do to add new highlights to her image? For starters, trip over a corpse, and implicate a wealthy town socialite in the crime. Now, with a well-muscled photographer by her side, Bubbles is playing star sleuth. But as the investigation unravels, her shining moment grows as dark as a shopgirl’s roots. However dangerous her new career, at least the hottest graduate of Two Guys Community College is finally busting loose—and this time she’s really giving Lehigh, Pennsylvania something to talk about.

Sarah Strohmeyer won the 2002 Agatha Award for best first mystery for Bubbles Unbound.

Baker & Taylor
Against all odds, Bubbles Yablonsky has returned to school, but while on her way to journalism school, she happens upon a crime scene and finds herself drawn into a murder investigation. Reprint.

Fun, lighthearted reading. If you like Janet Evanovich, you'll love this book, which has it all. The female sleuth with a crazy Mom on a mission to solve a murder mystery, written off by the police as a suicide. The silliness and fast moving plot keep you reading and laughing all the way until the end. Can't wait to read the next book in the series!

Cute, no brainer chick fiction. Great if you like fast-paced stories with leading female characters. If you enjoy Janet Evanovich's "Stephanie Plum" series, you'll enjoy Bubbles Yablonsky.
