Sometimes when we read, it's simply to be entertained. Sarah Strohmeyer does just that in her fifth Bubbles' novel, Bubbles Betrothed.

Bubbles Yablonsky is a rooky reporter who is given an exclusive interview with accused murderer Julia "Crazy Popeye" Simon. Crazy Popeye is accused of murdering Liberty High School's beloved principal by shoving a tie down his throat. Crazy Popeye proclaims her innocence and drops dead in front of Bubbles. Suddenly everyone wants Bubbles' interview notes.

Bubbles zany antics eventually result in success but not before we are entertained by characters like a police detective who is romance obsessed, a dentist with a foot fetish, a Polish member of the Mafioso, an ex-husband we love to hate and a boyfriend who wants a fake and temporary fiancee.

Bubbles Yablonsky is a woman we would all love to know. And Bubbles Betrothed is a madcap, fast-paced and riotous caper through her unusual life and times. This is an enjoyable beach read. Warning: If you read in public people will stare, believing you're crazy because you'll be laughing out loud. I guarantee that if you haven't already, you will read the other Bubbles books after finishing this one. Armchair Interviews recommends!
