Stella's long sought after big break on the stage is one she happens onto accidentally, and not for herself, but for her cat, Miss Bubbles. Her feline roommate has the uncanny ability to whistle, and that lands her a part in a play. For a while, Stella enjoys riding on her cat's coattails, as it were, but her personal life is dismal still. Her dreams seem destined to remain unrealized and her sleeping around brings her only trite, meaningless semi- relationships. Something must change. ....................... Frankly, this is among the more banal books to come out this year. Whatever good message might be in it gets lost in shallow characters. Miss Bubbles, as the title promises, is the best character in the whole thing.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Fine lighthearted romp.
At twenty-five, Stella Aurora Monroe feels like a big failure as she has not taken Manhattan by storm as an actress though she has tried for over six years. Adding to her feeling of failure is that she wakes up with some strange dude in her bed, having no idea of his name only she must have met him at a neighborhood bar. After tossing the hunk out, her day goes further downhill when her neighbor Christian Porter treats her with his usual sarcastic disdain............... Stella takes her beloved cat Miss Bubbles to the vet when a Jack Russell gets loose and frightens the feline, who while hiding whistles. Another client Francis Paine sees the white Persian perform and suggests Stella take Miss Bubbles to the Cherry Lane Theater where she would obtain a part in a play. Excited for Miss Bubbles, Stella is also jealous that her cat is going to be a star and paying the rent while Christian is beginning to look nicer................. Talk about truth in advertising, MISS BUBBLES STEALS THE SHOW in this fun Manhattan chick lit romance. Stella almost seems like two people as she is kind to her feline owner yet a ¿bigger than big j##rk¿ towards Christian although she always feeds him. Still Stella is no contender for smartest character as she sleeps around with no pleasure in that; readers will enjoy learning why in this fine lighthearted romp....................
