Monkey Star

(The second book in the Holly Heckerling series)
A novel by

In the much-anticipated sequel to MONKEY LOVE, Holly Heckerling leaves the Big Apple for Tinseltown - and soon discovers that celebrities are a species unto themselves.

When her best friend goes into labor, Holly heads West to help out. Holly has no intention of staying in L.A. after the baby is born, but a stint in show business and a flirtation with a movie star just may convince this diehard New Yorker to make Hollywood her home. Ditching her money problems, nosy neighbors, and overbearing aunts in Manhattan holds lots of appeal, but can she really say good-bye to Tom, the divorced college professor she's been dating for six months? And then there's Tallullah, the monkey who stole her heart during a pet-sitting assignment.

Will Holly be able to stop monkeying around and make her dreams come true? Or will a surprise visit from her past make her realize that Hollywood is just for playing make-believe?

"Royce's writing is read-out-loud-to-your-friends hilarious; I'm a fan!"
- Lani Diane Rich, author of THE COMEBACK KISS

Monkey Star is funny - really and truly funny - and it is also a novel in which everything and everyone rings true.
- Laura Zigman, author of ANIMAL HUSBANDRY

"Holly of MONKEY LOVE fame goes west to cause havoc in Hollywood as she did in Manhattan... Fans will enjoy this wild crazy contemporary as the laughs keep coming in this jocular frolic."
- Midwest Book Review

"Royce's zany sense of humor is intact, whether she's sticking her heroine in the most unflattering situations or crafting incredibly funny dialogue. Watch out for Tallulah the monkey and an uppity car navigation system named Nancy."
- Romantic Times Book Reviews

"With the second in the series, Royce has really hit her stride and created an effortlessly entertaining read ... Stuffed with hilarious exploits (both those of Holly and her mad family), MONKEY STAR is an absolute delight."
- Trashionista
