Review

'Instead of tickling gently, Bubbles smacks you with humor as broad as a whoopee pie in the kisser' Kirkus Reviews (Kirkus Reviews)

A highly entertaining read. Strohmeyer's literary main squeeze is Bubbles Yablonsky, Pennsylvania hairdresser and occasional crime reporter, a gal with a talent for indescructible beehive coiffures and getting into trouble (Midweek)

Bubbles has a life of her own. Strohmeyer...reaches down into the core of the character and the community (Booknews)

'In her second novel featuring high-energy beautician/rookie reporter, Bubbles Yablonsky, Strohmeyer successfully navigates the fine line between humorous stereotype and sympathetic amateur investigator...Bubbles goes undercover frantically (and hilariously) shifting between her role as a sexy reporter and her cover as an Amish widow...delightful' Publishers Weekly (Publishers Weekly)

Format: Paperback
This is the second novel starring the irrepressible Bubbles Yablonksy - hairdresser & aspiring journalist.
Bubbles’ friend Janice disappears on her wedding day leaving behind the body of her Uncle Elwood. Anxious to prove that Janice is not a murderer, Bubbles follows her to Amish country to get to the truth, at the same time hoping to get a good story for her editor.
Undercover as an Amish girl, Bubbles must manage without her beloved make-up and hot pants to find a murderer before her painted toe-nails and dark roots give her away!
Bubbles is a good character and this novel is as much fun as the first, although not very original. The world of Bubbles Yablonsky is startlingly like that of Janet Evanovich’s Stephanie Plum.
Both heroines are funny, feisty and share a love of big hair-dos, lycra and make-up. Both have a gorgeous guy in hot pursuit, a host of kooky relatives and both are trying out new careers which don’t exactly come naturally…with hilarious results.
Evanovich does it better, but Bubbles in Trouble is a fun read whilst you’re waiting for the next Stephanie Plum instalment.

I am sure that you have hear the saying, "never judge a book by its cover". Well that saying fits perfectly with this book. Sarah Strohmeyer has included all the elements that build up to create the perfect suspensful murder mystery book. She makes the reader believe that they know the ending and that it will be like any other book where the main character ends up 'happily ever after' on one page. But on the next she will make them believe,'well maybe it won't end up happily'. She has filled the book with humour such as the cosmetic college that Bubbles graduated from, Two Guys University. This book kept me up well past my bedtime, it captivates the reader with its intricate plot in the first couple pages. I could not suggest a better book to a murder mystery fans, I guarantee anybody that this book will provide the perfect entertaining read.

Good fun, a comedy thriller with a cracking pace. Barbie-style hairdresser Bubbles is a great heroine, the only down side is that her recurring love interest is supposed to look like Mel Gibson. Eeyuk - the author needs to update her cultural reference points! Johnny Depp, anyone?

At last a cure for insomnia!! Sarah Strohmeyer's underwhelming sense of character and plot (there was a plot?) was like reading the script of Duck Soup written by Karl Marx. As a potboiler it barely simmered, as a story it was the Brothers Grimm without the Brothers.

Making Whoopee with Intercourse and Paradise (don't ask, it's too painful to explain)the book's main claim to accuracy was the word "crime" on the cover. To call it a novel is criminal in itself.

I purchased the book second hand in pristine condition (someone at least had the sense to ditch it unopened). I asked for my money back but the Charity Shop where I bought it said they needed the 50p more than I did!!

bubbles yablonsky is very like evanovich's stephanie plum and plum is much better. lots of silly adventures like waving a red wonderbra at a tractor driver and lots of silly characters, my favourite nimrod!!! good for a few hours of silliness at the end of the day to unwind.
