Lucky StarsBook - 2003
Stacey Reiser left Cleveland for Hollywood to pursue an acting career--and to escape her lovable but meddlesome mother, Helen. But her plan backfires when the widowed Helen sells her house and follows Stacey to tinsel town, invades every aspect of her daughter's world and drives her crazy. As in eye twitch crazy. Insomnia crazy. Acid reflux crazy. If only Mom would get a life, Stacey wishes after her mother has called for the zillionth time that day to nag her about her clothes, her hair, her lack of a wedding ring. If only she'd get a life and stay out of mine. How could Stacey ever imagine that Helen would get a life -- the very life Stacey craves? Just as Stacey's career takes a dive, a twist of fate lands Helen in a television commercial that catapults her to stardom. Now it's Helen who's the media darling and Stacey who's the meddler. And while Stacey is hoping for a commitment from her boyfriend, it's Helen who snares the catch of the century. Or does she? Helen's new beau isn't what he seems, and it's up to Stacey to expose his shady past before it's too late. But it'll take the acting job of a lifetime to do it, not to mention a whole lot of heart. Lucky Stars is a novel that's as keenly observed as it is entertaining, and it will have mothers and daughters laughing out loud and nodding in recognition.
