    "A Surprise"

    I have to admit that I was surprised by this book. I'd read about the similarities to Stephanie Plum, etc. It is similar, but I still enjoyed it for what it is. I call these kinds of books Cheetos for the brain. There isn't a lot of substance but you still enjoy them. It's light entertainment that if it's good for nothing else, it makes vacuuming, cooking & other chores go by faster while listening.

    "I laughed out loud"

    After listening to many, many murder mysteries I was looking for something a little different. This was it. I really enjoyed the book a great deal and laughed out loud often. I liked Bubbles! She is funny and different. She is smart, capable, and just plain fun!

    "Made me laugh"

    These books are a lot of fun. The situations are silly but with enough real life to make them hilarious. The narrator did a great job with different accents and onomatopoeia. I plan on listening to all the "Bubbles" books.

    "very cute"

    This was the first in this series.It is easy to identify with if you've been a struggling single mom with a difficult family. It's light reading & funny,and I have bought more of her books and enjoyed them all.

    "Bubbling over"

    She is fun!! When you need a break from hard boiled detectives, grim coroners and overly cozy, cozies...Bubbles is your gal. The hairdresser with attitude and 3 inch spikes is a fun ride and makes the work commute a breeze, unfortunately...I keep sneaking her in the house to listen to before bed.

    "A new heroine"

    What a great character and series. This was a laugh from start to finish. Let's hope that Audible gets the whole series for us to listen to.

    "Not that Funny"

    I purchased the unabridged audio version of Bubble's Unbound with the understanding that this novel was supposed to be humorous. Boy, was I disappointed. Bubbles is just another sad Steph Plum knockoff, but worse, Bubbles is even more inept than Plum. If such a thing can be believed.

    Worse, this novel isn't particularly funny. Bubbles Unbound was like a bad episode of Lucy... But with a silly ex, and a teenage daughter instead of Rickie. I found the humor in this novel cringe inducing. (The scene with the 'jumper,' the long and sad back-story about the main character's lack of education and compulsive community college course-taking).The characters names (Stilleto, Bubbles), were off-putting and too 'cute' for my taste.

    Overall, I found Bubbles Unbound to be a waste of time. It didn't even produce a chuckle.
