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.

I really enjoyed this first installation of Bubbles! She is a very resourceful mother and hair dresser turned journalist. She gets caught up in a bunch of trouble, saves lives, and nearly loses her own in the process of investigating two different linked murders. Chaos and hilarity ensue. She's a gr...
Bubbles is a hairdresser/detective. I mainly enjoyed this book because the author grew up in the same town where I grew up and still live. It was fun to recognize places she wrote about in the book. This book reminds me of the Shopaholic books in that Becky from Shopaholic and Bubbles both are cluel...
This book was recommended by a good friend and I am so glad I took the chance on this book. This is a great series. For book one you are already hooked. Bubbles is your classic blonde who is a hairdresser/journalist want to be. It is too funny to even put down.
