SunnySD's review
Still waiting on her big chance to do a hard news story, News-Times and ace hairdresser Bubbles Yablonsky is wearing her new sexy underwear when she gets the fax sending her to an abandoned coal mine. In a matter of moments she's stuck under a mountain with a dead man.

Typical Bubbles fun spiked with beauty recipes and humorous mishaps involving Bubbles, her daughter's boyfriend and the mysterious Slagville Sirens. ( )

Opening Sentence: "...Looking back, I guess my first mistake was to assume that a rookie reporter could persue both a hot story and a hot sex life..."

This is the third book in the series - and I am not sure if I will rush out to buy any more. Lured into an unused Pennsylvania coal mine, Bubbles and her boyfriend, reporter Steve Stiletto, escape a cave-in right after they stumble on the body of car-sales magnate Bud Price. Bubbles's finds the car, but no sign of, her cousin-in-law, "Stinky", the cartographer for McMullen Coal, the company that owns the mine. What has he found - why is he hiding?

Stinky is missing, accused of the murder, and then the plot goes into overkill, more deaths, more disappearances. Bubbles has to deal with a group of miners wives who rule the town, the life of her rebellious teenage daughter, her mother's vendetta over some stolen Polish recipes, and someone who wants to kill her.

The plot was overkill!!! It is a slapdash murder mystery - with more slap than dash. It has a ridiculous and highly unbelievable plot - but amazingly it actually kept me hooked all the way through - go figure :) ( )

I love this series!!!! Its so funny. I feel bad for Bubbles some times but then i have to giggle and think that she deserves what she got lol. You never know what you are going to get when you turn the page on these series. A must read. ( )

Bubbles continues to detect while also being a ditz. Scattered with beauty treatments and moments in hairdressers while also dealing with murder, her teenage daughter, her crazy mother and Steve Stiletto.

When Bubbles and Steve plan a romantic getaway they get drawn into murder when they are called to a coal mine to a press conference and instead of a conference they find a dead body and almost become dead bodies themselves.

It's fun, light, mindless entertainment but is quite readable. Strain is beginning to show in the framework. ( )
