    Ugh! Her worst yet!

    It's a shame this release was actually published!!! I've read Hellers other books and always found myself laughing out loud and throughly enjoying each page. (At times I'd read straight through in one night.) This time however I kept reading all the way through, hoping that it would get better. Alas the wit was dry, barely funny, a not too difficult to figure out storyline and very little in the way of romance as some of her other books had. Shame. Hopefully Heller's writing skills haven't left her entirely and her next book will be far more enjoyable.

    first class dramatic comedy

    She loves her mother but budding actress Stacey Reiser really wishes that she would get a life. Stacy is tired of her mother¿s frequent phone calls, unsolicited advice and suggestions on how to hold on to a man. Even though there is not a man in her life at present, she is getting roles in movies and televisions shows instead of commercials. When Helen Reiser sells her home in Cleveland and moves close to her daughter in L.A. Stacey goes into shock. Stacey becomes persona no grata in movieland when Jack Rawlings of Good Morning Hollywood trashes her part in a movie. Through a quirky set of circumstances Helen becomes the star in a series of tuna fish commercials, which leads to her to becoming a Hollywood icon. Stacey is happy for her mother even though she has to take a sales job to pay the bills. She becomes very concerned when her mother falls for a man with a shady reputation. Stacey, with the help of Jack (the pair are now an item), try to dig up some evidence against him because her mother won¿t have her daughter dissing her boyfriend. LUCKY STARS is a first class dramatic comedy starring two strong-willed women who are experiencing role reversal. Readers will find themselves chuckling out loud at some of the conversations these two women exchange. The romance between the actress and the film critic adds another layer of complexity to the plot, as does Stacey¿s antipathy of her mother¿s beau. Jane Heller is a talented writer whose latest work crosses genre lines with this lush witty melodrama. Harriet Klausner
