New troubles for Bubbles: Her friend, bride-to-be Janice, never showed up at the altar, and everybody's blaming Bubbles for singing Lynyrd Skynyrd's "Free Bird" at the bachelorette party the night before.

    I really enjoyed this second outing with Bubbles. It was fun watching her go undercover in the Pennsylvania Amish country. Some good twists along the way including one at the end that had me going for a few pages. Looking forward to reading more in the series. #readforkimberly

Along the way, she cleans a prized cow with VO5, convinces her "new" Amish family that her gold toenail polish is actually a toe fungus, and has a mishap with an exploding barrell of rootbeer all over the kitchen.....

    The Bubbles series is a hoot! OK, it's not exactly Fine Literature, but if you're in the mood for a quick, fast, funny and a little bit mysterious read, with some over-the-top fashion that the bleached-teased-spandex-clad Bubbles sports, well then it'll be well worth the read.

    LOVED the Bubbles series by Sarah Strohmeyer!! Funny, engaging and so well written, with enough anticipation and surprise to keep the pages turning... the characters drew me in and kept me there. As I finished each book, I couldn't wait to open the next one in the series. LOVED the Bubbles series by Sarah Strohmeyer!!

As Genevieve, her mother's best friend correctly points out, it's an alias she won't forget. Once in Whoopee (in this case, likely standing in for Blue Balls, which is also near Intercourse and Paradise PA), she tries to find Janice, the runaway bride now pinned as a murder suspect for her very dead uncle. Ostensibly, however, she's actually in Whoopee to find out why two Amish boys on rum springa were held for so long for a joyride, and put in state custody. Meanwhile, her cover story is that she's in town to possibly make a match with her host family's son. Ferhoodled? Well, naturally, it gets better, with Bubbles uncovering a land grab, and a marijuana operation, and a few more murders, plus Stiletto. And yes, only Bubbles, when offered the chance to go anywhere in the world with Stiletto, would pick Scranton.

    This book was so much fun! I'd never read anything by Sarah Strohmeyer before, but now I can't wait to read more of her work! I loved how much heart Bubbles has, her mom's common sense & her daughter's insight & intelligence. I'm from Montgomery county, PA. & spent many a Saturday in Amish country & Ms. Strohmeyer made the setting a real part of the story. I felt like I was back home!

    This is the second book in the Bubbles Yablonsky series. Like the first book in this delightful series it is full of wardrobe changes and pitfalls for Bubbles. I enjoyed the author placing such a thoroughly "modern woman" as Bubbles in a situation where she was totally out of her league - living with an Amish family. This book had more plot twists than the first one and I was guessing about who did what up to the end. It is a fun, lighthearted read. This is the second book in the Bubbles Yablonsky series.

    Delightful mystery about a hairdresser turning high heels on the ground undercover newspaper reporter. The heroine's comic name is Bubbles Yablonsky, a daughter of the coal and steel country of Pennsylvania. The author Sarah Strohmeyer spins a sweet story. In the words of Flume's Hottest 100 song, she knows how to "Say It." Delightful mystery about a hairdresser turning high heels on the ground undercover newspaper reporter.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. I liked book 2 better than book 1. The first book felt a little like the author was trying to emulate Janet Evanovich. This one seemed more like a separate story. Bubbles went undercover in Amish country to try to solve a mystery. After many near-death experiences, she finally got the bad guys and also got an "I love you" from Stiletto. I liked book 2 better than book 1.

    This is a fun easy read, as bubbles tries to go undercover as an Amish woman to find out what happened to her friend and who murdered her friend's uncle. Laughable since she is a jersey girl that is far from Amish. I will definitely read the next in the series because it is a light feel good book.

    Okay, don't get me wrong: I like Bubbles a lot. I like her character and the cast around her. But something about this entry in the series just wasn't as engaging as the first book. Bubbles hiding in Amish country was a little bit too wacky, and combined with the Amish drug trade... this one was just a little too much for me. Okay, don't get me wrong: I like Bubbles a lot.

    More Trouble! With Bubbles: what a name. At least these are cheering me up. This was a cute book, but took me longer than the 1st book. I have not figured how tho make 3 1/2 stars. This is tiny less than 4 to me. Still funny!

    A cute cozy mystery that’s a bit dated but still fun. Not sure that I’ll read more in this series, so hard to take a main character named Bubbles seriously.

Publishers Weekly Bubbles Yablonsky is back, doing hair, moonlighting as a reporter for the local paper, and stumbling into a bit of amateur sleuthing. This time she's off looking for Janice, a friend who walked out on her own wedding, leaving her uncle's corpse behind. To track her, Bubbles must surrender her makeup and spandex and don Amish garb, for Janice is really Elspeth and has gone home to the heart of Amish country in Whoopee, Pennsylvania. Strohmeyer was on surer--and funnier--ground in Bubbles' first adventure, Bubbles Unbound [BKL Ja 1 & 15 01]. Bubbles "Plain" doesn't really work, even with shoofly pie as a murder weapon and a sweet homage to fellow Pennsylvania Dutch-themed author Tamar Meyer. Bubbles' relationship to her brilliant teen daughter and to the elusive but hunky photographer Stiletto helps carry one through.

    Another free crappy sort of mystery novel, but better then that last POS I read. I think this was a sequel to a book I hadn't read as well, but it read okay as a stand alone. Not great, but not horrible either. White-trash women is a hair-dresser, but wants to get more into journalism in her small town and seems to search out crimes to write about for her town paper. This one had to do with like her best friend, who was Amish, but not anymore and she was about to marry someone, but disappeared r Another free crappy sort of mystery novel, but better then that last POS I read.

How will this white-trash hair-dresser act within an Amish community so she can find out what happened? There was a little too much going on for me, and there ended up being like 3 crimes and stories going on at once and I couldn't really follow it. The writing was witty at times, which made the painfulness of the story not so painful at times, but all in all, a pretty lame story. Grade: C-

    You can tell that Strohmeyer knows Evanovich. In fact, she was a guest author at one of our County libraries and said that Bubbles was "born" on Evanovich's kitchen table. There's plenty of humor, Bubbles isn't the same character as Stephanie Plum. However, a lot of this reminds me of JE; lots of slapstick and a romantic interest (or two). Bubbles has a quirky mom (rather than grandma). Bubbles also has a brilliant daughter and a former husband very much on the screen.

In this story (the second in the series) Bubbles has gotten an assignment from the newspaper - she sort of freelances when she's not working as a hairdresser. In this assignment, she goes undercover in Amish territory where she dresses in traditional clothes, no make-up, and works at an Amish farm. I'm sure it doesn't take too much imagination to figure out there are plenty of opportunities here for humor.

    I really wanted to like this at first. But Strohmeyer's like Janet Evanovich on steroids. Everything is so over the top and the characters just don't have any depth at all. If Evanovich writes cream puffs (which I love) then Stohmeyer writes cotton candy (which I hate). There were parts that were fun but there were parts where I thought I might just stop reading the book, which I NEVER do. Might try the writer again for beach reading but I will definitely check reviews first. I have a feeling th I really wanted to like this at first. But Strohmeyer's like Janet Evanovich on steroids.

    I enjoyed this book it was definately fluff but I find I need a little 'junk' in my 'diet'. I also really like how Bubbles is flawed and the author doen't try to make her super human just super determined. The mystery was pretty easy to solve but I have read so many that it is pretty hard to suprise me anymore. I really loved how clean it was, everything was there it just wasn't described in nauseating detail. If I wanted that I would read harlequins and the like.

    Amish country! Who knew. This was hysterical. Bubbles gets herself into such crazy trouble! (Hence the title, duh.) Bubbles trying to impersonate an Amish woman is extremely amusing. She's thinks fast and comes up with some very creative lies. The cast of characters in this was very interesting. Bubbles meets many new people, tries to solve the big mysteries, and hopes to further her relationship with Steve. Hilarity ensues, along with confusion, action, and excitement.

    God I love these books! I discovered them at my local library, before I moved, read the 3 that they had, and forgot about looking for more! I really think Sarah Strohmeyer had a goldmine idea here. I'm usually not one for such silliness, but the zany Bubbles, who is everything I'm not, just cracks me up! and the home recipes are great! I totally intend to stain my hair with coffee one of these days... and I'm always deviously telling teenagers how to color their hair with Kool-aid. God I love these books!

    Bubbles is like Stephanie Plum lite. She is slightly more grounded, is a mother and has only one guy. But she is a hairdresser trying to be a reporter and gets herself into crazy situations. This time she is in Amish country searching for a missing bride and checking on some delinquent teenagers. She manages to discover a bunch of crazy things going there, getting herself and posse in plenty of trouble. If you are in the mood for a silly romp, this will fit the bill.

    This is number two in the Bubbles series. Bubble Yablonsky goes undercover in an Amish community near Lehigh,PA on the hunt for a missing bride and murder suspect. As usual, Bubbles' antics are laugh out loud funny especially if you grew up in Pennsylvania in the sixties. I actually liked thisbook better than the first one. There was more activity and not as much wasted time filling in the back story. A pleasant relaxing mystery for summer day. This is number two in the Bubbles series.
