Penguin Putnam
New York Times bestselling author Susan Andersen called Bubbles Unbound "rollicking good fun. Bubbles rocks!" The Houston Chronicle praised it as "riotous...a strong debut." And award-winning author Carolyn Hart crowned it "fizzy as bicarb, funny as Evanovich...should bubble right to the top of the bestseller lists." Now the spandex-wearing, cleavage-baring hairstylist-cum-journalist and sleuth from Lehigh, Pennsylvania, returns in another wacky, wisecracking mystery that offers a few priceless beauty tips along the way.

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. Now Bubbles has just found Janice's uncle Elwood dead on his bathroom floor-his skull bashed in and his Rolls Royce missing. The baffling murder could be her Big Break as Bubbles goes deep undercover in Whoopee, Pennsylvania (located between Intercourse and Paradise) as a "plain girl from Ohio" boarding with a local Amish family. That means no spandex, no showers, and...no makeup. When she's not helping out on the farm, Bubbles searches for clues-with the usual hilarious results.

Featuring a cast of characters that includes a chocolate-baking neo-Nazi; a shoofly pie-obsessed Dutchman; Bubbles' loony mother, LuLu; her precocious teenage daughter, Jane; and that love'em-and-leave'em hunk, Stiletto-along with selected Dutch country beauty recipes-Bubbles in Trouble is another rip-roaring adventure in a rapidly growing mystery series with "never a dull moment" (bestselling author Fay Weldon).

Bubbles' life hasn't changed much since she got her first Big Break in journalism. She's still ditzy and impulsive, worries about her precocious teenage daughter, Jane, and fights her weakness for handsome men. And she's still happily settled in her hometown of Lehigh, Pennsylvania, cutting hair and soothing souls down at Sandy's House of Beauty. But new trouble is brewing. 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. Then Bubbles finds Janice's uncle Elwood dead on his bathroom floor - his skull bashed in and his Rolls Royce missing. Obviously, the baffling murder could be Bubble's next Big Break in journalism. So she goes deep undercover in Whoopee, Pennsylvania (located between Intercourse and Paradise), posing as a "plain girl from Ohio" and boarding with a local Amish family. That means no spandex, no showers, and, worst of all...no makeup. But Bubbles is up to the challenge. And when she's not helping out on the farm, she's searching for clues - with the usual hilarious results.
