Join the North Providence Mystery Book Club on Tuesday January 2, 2018. We will be reading Bubbles Unbound by Sarah Strohmeyer. This is the first book featuring Bubbles Yablonsky. Bubbles is a hair stylist who takes journalism classes in hopes of landing a better job. She soon becomes involved in a mystery. This book won the 2001 Agatha Award for Best First Novel.
The book description from the author’s website is: “…Convinced there’s more to life than giving blue dye jobs at Sandy’s House of Beauty, Bubbles Yablonsky has done what few in Lehigh, PA, would dare: she’s gone back to school. And if her day gig, journalism classes, and on-the-job training at a local paper aren’t enough, there’s always her family to liven things up-from her bottom-feeding, social-climbing ex-husband to her precocious teenage daughter to her gun-toting mother, who just escaped from the Polish Old Folks Apartments. But when Bubbles stumbles on a crime scene on the way home from an assignment, she is suddenly up to her roots in a nasty murder investigation . . . with suspects ranging from a greedy steel tycoon to a sexy photographer named Stiletto. It could be the Big Break she’s been waiting for. If it doesn’t kill her first. With her big hair and even bigger heart, Bubbles Yablonsky is a delightful and winning protagonist that readers will root for every step of the way.”
We will meet in the Second Floor Meeting Room at 7:00 PM. Have a happy holiday season.
