If one can get past Bubbles' bleached hair, heavy make up and tight clothes, it isn't hard to understand why the Lehigh, Pennsylvania hairdresser wants to be a reporter. A story is the furthest thing from Bubbles' mind when she arrives at the church to walk her best friend Janice Kramer down the aisle. When Janice fails to show up, Bubbles goes to her house where she finds her buddy's dead uncle but no bride.

Learning that Janice was brought up Amish, Bubbles heads for her hometown of Wheelie in Pennsylvania's Lancaster County to find her friend and clear her name. She goes undercover dressing Amish and living with an Amish family and gets involved in a different investigation, one that could get her killed if she's not careful.

BUBBLES IN TROUBLE is a light breezy amateur sleuth novel that doesn't take it self very seriously but is none the less a very entertaining mystery. The protagonist is totally refreshing as she stays true to herself while trying to better herself. Reading a Bubbles Yablonsky novel is like watching an episode of I love Lucy.
