Good Book, Wrong Cover

    Unique Story line and highly entertaining

    I really liked this book, it is different from her fbi series and her romance novels. This has humorous situations and plot twists. The end seems a little rushed and not as thought out, but i was still entertained

    Not Her Best Story

    I am a HUGE fan of Catherine Coulter, but I was very disappointed in this book. There seems to be a lot of loose ends. Such as: What happened with Mary Lisa and her mother?? Did they make things right?? ect.

    Coulter has lost her way.

    The soap opera star's story line was much more interesting. It was also annoying to hop from reality to playacting. Coulter misuses her talent when she tries to make her characters comedic.

    a true disappointment for Coulter fans

    Having read all of Coulter's other books, some many times over, I've despaired thru her last few attempts. Her early works were a world unto themselves, with depth that demanded repeat readings. But lately, her writing has become scattershot and slipshod. The characters are two-dimensional with seemingly little plot to really chew on. 'Born to be Wild' was the last straw for this reader, it reads more like the outline for two or three good novels, rather than the page turners she usually turns out. Instead of one or two really juicy plots, Coulter throws in 5 or 6 half-baked threads. Her characters act with no motivation or seeming development- they just wander in and out of the scene with maybe a word or two about them, and they deserve so much more. Coulter has made a name writing really good mystery and romance novels, but this one amounts to very little of either. If she'd taken the time, this could have been a very interesting trilogy, instead she threw it all together into one very bad read....and lost this reader as a fan.

    Coulter Does It Again

    This book is amazing. It is full of romance and action. I love the way the words flow off the page. You can see yourself in every character. If you are a soap fan, you'll like it and if you aren't you will still like it. This is an amazing book and can't till a new book comes out.

    A Fun Breezy Read

    Coulter completely sucked me into BTBW with the first line: 'Mary Lisa didn't want to puke up the two Ritz crackers she eaten for supper.' Mary Lisa wins her 3rd straight daytime Emmy for her portrayal as the coniving Sunday Cavendish on BTBW. Mary Lisa isn't anything like Sunday, so when she is struck down by a speeding car eveyone she knows is stunned. Mary Lisa flees to Goddard Bay to her father to heal and escape Poker Hodges-a paparazzi on whom Mary Lisa has a TRO as well as her would be killer. Little does she know as she enters Goddard Bay, a man has been killed and Mary Lisa faces her nemeses, Chief Jack Wolf and her mother. Mary Lisa travels back to LaLa Land intreested in two mewn and the reason her mother hates her so much, since she is her father's daughter, and mother does loves George Beverly to a fault. Coulter peppers the reader w/ snipets of soap history as she makes Mary Lisa's real life far more dramatic than Sunday's. Is what happening to her in LA connected to the murder in Goddard Bay?

    So where's the ending ?

    I have normally enjoyed her books. This story was ok, but she forgot to write the ending. Are the readers supposed to make one up in their heads ? I was disappointed with this book.
