Back of the book: 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 shop girl’s roots. However dangerous her new career, at least the hottest graduate of the Two Guys community college is finally busting loose – and this time she’s really giving Lehigh, Pennsylvania something to talk about.
Bubbles Unbound is a fun and fast mystery. I look forward to reading the next in the series. If you like Stephanie Plum, you’ll enjoy Bubbles Yablonsky!
