Miss Bubbles Steals the Show

( 3 )

Overview

It's like the "big break" fairy knocked and I wasn't home!

But my roommate was — he's up for a role on All My Children. And Miss Bubbles, my adorable and absurdly intelligent longhaired Persian, can now buy her own Fancy Feast — she's starring in a prestigious off-Broadway play, opposite the man of my dreams. What's going on here? I mean, hello, my name is Stella — it means star! Clearly I'm the one who's destined for divadom. I was just about to start really going for it, too: ...

Overview

It's like the "big break" fairy knocked and I wasn't home!

But my roommate was — he's up for a role on All My Children. And Miss Bubbles, my adorable and absurdly intelligent longhaired Persian, can now buy her own Fancy Feast — she's starring in a prestigious off-Broadway play, opposite the man of my dreams. What's going on here? I mean, hello, my name is Stella — it means star! Clearly I'm the one who's destined for divadom. I was just about to start really going for it, too: no more wasting time with good-for-nothing boyfriends, chocolate-martini hangovers and Oprah marathons. Just success! That was before my cat got her own dressing room and I landed the supporting role of stage mom. You know, a lesser girl might have contemplated hanging up her head shot.

But not me. I'm determined to snag myself a lead role . . . and while I'm at it, the leading man.

Melanie Murray lives in Brooklyn with her boyfriend and bulldog. This is her first novel.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Murray's energetic debut novel stars 25-year-old Stella Aurora Monroe, a struggling actress in New York City whose sparkle may be dimming after one-too-many miserable auditions. On the rebound from an affair with a married man, Stella drowns her sorrows in chocolate martinis and one-night stands. She's on the lookout for a man who might help her career and thinks she's found her ticket to romance and fame in "ascending-to-the-stratosphere" actor Jasper Hodge, until he turns out to be another two-timing dog. Meanwhile, as Stella's career goes nowhere, her whistling white Persian cat, Miss Bubbles, lands a supporting role in Jasper's prestigious Off-Broadway show, and Stella slowly starts to question her own motives in pursuing stardom. She learns something about self-respect and authentic ambition, and makes a quick recovery from a trampled heart when she realizes the bookish boy next door is the real thing. By the end of this entertaining if somewhat thin novel, readers see a shallow, hapless Stella grow up into a more serious-but still spunky-young woman.

    Miss Bubbles

    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.

    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.................... Harriet Klausner
