BUBBLES A BROAD by SARAH STROHMEYER
Bubbles Yablonsky, everyone's favorite flaky hairdresser/
reporter/amateur sleuth, goes all the way in this latest
wacky mystery starring the woman Jennifer Crusie
calls "Pennsylvania's answer to Erin Brockovich... You're
going to love her!"
After a cat fight at a stuffy historical society meeting
nearly kills her career, Bubbles is given just one week to
prove her worth to her editors at the News-Times and earn a
real job there by cracking her biggest story ever— finding
out who really murdered Carol Weaver's steel-executive
husband with cyanide-tipped fingernails. More than Carol's
own jail sentence for the homicide is riding on Bubbles's
investigation. Also at stake—uncovering possible corruption
in the steel industry at the highest level.
Nothing will deter Bubbles this time! Not trying to drive
with a cell phone in one hand and a mascara wand in the
other. Not the shenanigans of mother LuLu, the pressure of
getting daughter Jane into a good college (maybe Princeton,
maybe Two Guys Community), or the roadblocks posed by
Jane's ever-clueless boyfriend G. Not even hunky, gonzo
photojournalist Steve Stiletto, who takes Bubbles to bed in
a scene so steamy it finally puts pay to her Mel Gibson
crush. Gutsy, intuitive, and delivering her best one-liners
along with beauty recipes, Bubbles is "behind the wheel,
and a wild ride awaits" (Publishers Weekly). It's all in a
day's work for a broad like Bubbles.
