Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
In Strohmeyer's wacky fifth mystery starring Bubbles Yablonsky (after 2004's Bubbles a Broad), the former hairdresser and queen of the tube tops dons her first business suit ($30 hot pink skirt and jacket on layaway) to interview accused murderer Jill "Crazy Popeye" Simon for the Lehigh, Pa., News-Times, in Simon's holding cell. Unfortunately, Simon expires in mid-sentence after claiming she actually tried to save the victim, Liberty High School's beloved principal, Rudy Schmidt, who choked to death on the tie shoved down his throat. Bubbles's interview notes prove to be of interest to a number of delightfully goofy characters, including a Polish mafioso and a podiatrist with a foot fetish. Meanwhile, Bubbles hears that her boyfriend, stud-for-the-ages reporter Steve Stiletto, has announced he is engaged-to her-in a ploy to keep from getting transferred to London. This isn't exactly the kind of proposal she had fantasized. Strohmeyer pokes fun at Bubbles and her cohorts, but with obvious respect and fondness. Agent, Heather Schroder at ICM. Author tour. (Apr. 11) Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
Library Journal
By a stroke of dumb luck, bumbling blonde rookie journalist Bubbles Yablonsky (Bubbles A Broad) interviews a homeless woman accused of murder just before said woman keels over, dead of poisoning. Police, lawyers, and nameless bad guys want Yablonsky's notes, the head of the so-called Polish mafia craves information about the disappearance of his ex-girlfriend, and Bubbles's boyfriend Stiletto persuades her to agree to a fake engagement. With all these demands, Bubbles can't help but be distracted. Wild action, crazy humor, and lively prose will engage Bubbles fans as well as Stephanie Plum buffs. Recommended. Strohmeyer lives in Vermont. [See Prepub Mystery, LJ 12/04.] Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
Take one ditzy blonde, one drop-dead gorgeous photojournalist, and one two-carat diamond ring, and poof!-instant mayhem. Now that Bubbles Yablonsky (Bubbles a Broad, 2004, etc.) has hung up her curling iron for good, the ex-hairdresser takes her new career seriously. The Lehigh News-Times reporter is willing to risk a contempt-of-court charge rather than surrender the notes from her interview with accused murderer Julia "Crazy Popeye" Simon. Popeye's poisoning in her jail cell makes the police think maybe she didn't kill high school principal Rudolph Schmidt, even though podiatrist Cerise May found the bag lady in her waiting room with her hands down the administrator's throat. And they think Bubbles's notebook may help them find out who did kill Schmidt, and whether the killing is connected to May's ex-boyfriend, Polish mafioso Karol Smolak. Of course, keeping her mother Lulu out of trouble and helping daughter Jane fill out her application to Princeton take up most of Bubbles's spare time, so it isn't until the judge fines her $1,000 per minute until her notes resurface that she decides she'd better find out who killed Schmidt. But Bubbles doesn't reckon with the biggest distraction of all: AP photographer Steve Stiletto, who plunks a diamond on her finger and asks her to pretend to be his fiancee so he doesn't get sent to London. Fans will be thrilled at the latest twists in Bubbles's career and love life, with a nifty puzzle as a bonus. Agency: ICM

    A wonderful, funny and charming who-done-it

    After a decade of working in hair salons and solving homicides, Bubbles has a new career as a reporter at the News-Times. She is covering the trial of Crazy Popeye, a homeless person whose real name is Julia Simon. She is accused of killing revered Lehigh Principal Rudolph Schmidt in his podiatrist¿s office. Because of a run in with security Bubbles shares a cell with Julia, who tells the reporter that the podiatrist always let her use her bathroom and even let her sleep in the waiting room........................ She insists she didn¿t kill Schmidt; she heard a man and a woman running; and was trying to save the Principal when the police busted her. In the middle of the conversation Julia drops to the floor and dies. The police demand Bubbles¿ notes but she refuses to turn them over. She not only has the police on her case, but also a Polish Mafioso who want them as well. While she pretends to be engaged to reporter Steve Stiletto and deals with her eccentric family, Bubbles finds herself in the middle of hostage situation hosted by a diabolical killer who plans the deaths of three innocent people unless Bubbles can figure out a way out of her predicament....................... Readers who like a funny upbeat mystery on the orders of Janet Evanovich¿s Stephanie Plan novels will definitely love BUBBLES BETROTHED. The heroine may not have a first class education or an upscale wardrobe, but she has plenty of heart and that is why readers care about her. The scenes between Bubbles and her ¿fiancé¿ are hilarious and the mystery is well constructed with plenty of surprising twists and turns. Sarah Strohmeyer scores again with another amusing who-done-it................... Harriet Klausner
