Dear Listener:

Get yourself ready for Mary Lisa Beverly—a soap-opera phenom who’s just won her third Daytime Emmy for her role as Sunday Cavendish on Born to Be Wild. She’s fun and lovable and has lots of crazy friends, most of whom hang out at her house in the Colony, the famous gated community in Malibu. Unfortunately, there is one bad thing to poleax her champagne life—someone is trying to kill her.

You’ll meet Mary Lisa’s family in Goddard Bay, Oregon. She’s blessed with her father, cursed with her mother, and betwixt and between with her two nutzoid sisters.

And how about guys? There aren’t any hotties in L.A. of interest to Mary Lisa, but in Goddard Bay—there are District Attorney John Goddard and Chief of Police Jack Wolf. And guess what? Even in the boondocks, bad stuff can happen.

Mary Lisa’s best friends, Lou Lou Bollinger and Elizabeth Fargas, become embroiled in the baffling attempts on Mary Lisa’s life in L.A., with unexpected results.

I hope you laugh a lot with Born to Be Wild, root for Mary Lisa in all of her roles, and all in all, have a fine time with this book.

    " Got bored with this one really fast, didn't finish it, lost interest. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lesley | 2/14/2014

    " Good mix of suspense and chick-lit formats. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 ♆ BookAddict ~ La Crimson Femme | 1/30/2014

    " I wonder what it is like to be mixed up with a character an actress is playing. I know there are some actors I loath because of their characters on a TV show or movie. In Born to be Wild, we see a bit of this in Sunday. This book was a fast read for me and not too memorable. Still it is a Ms. Coulter book and I do enjoy her books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Laurie | 1/29/2014

    " Audio book-Not bad. It can be a little cheesy. Sort of a Lifetime movie. But it's an easy listen for the ride to and from work. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Emily | 1/22/2014

    " I really like the author's FBI series but this book didn't keep my attention. "

    " i enjoyed reading it...nice novel..good work.. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Rrshively | 1/7/2014

    " The main character, Mary Lisa, was a surprisingly likeable soap opera star. Otherwise this was an ordinary, run-of-the-mill mystery. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Adrienne Monson | 1/2/2014

    " I really like this author and how well she portrays character development, and draws you into the plot, but I didn't love this book so much. She was going for comedy, which it was funny, but the suspense and plot twists were only so-so. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kara Thomas | 11/18/2013

    " Fun, quick adventure. Not fabulous writing, but sometimes you need a little fluff. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alicia | 11/17/2013

    " This book was a riot! It kept reminding me of the movie Soapdish, b/c everything was a soap opera. But in a good way. I laughed the whole way through. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Erin | 11/13/2013

    " This was my first Catherine Coulter book. I suspect it was meant to be slightly over the top as it was about a soap star. Held my attention, and it was a fairly quick read. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Cindy DeMoville | 10/18/2013

    " library book- read 2-3 pages... horrible stupid "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Salwa | 10/17/2013

    " loved it , super cute !! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Renna | 10/13/2013

    " OK - I truly loved reading this book... I loved the suspense of romance - you don't know who she'll fall for until you read half the book - very good!! The only reason why it didn't get 5 stars was the last chapter... But I loved the 3 women in this book - would love more stories about them!!!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michelle Stevens | 9/21/2013

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Barb | 6/15/2013

    " I need to remember that I do not like this author's writing style! The story was ok, but she writes all these boring conversations...the book could have been shorter. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jaclyn | 5/21/2012

    " This was a fun and entertaining story about a soap star who is being stalked and threatened. When her old nemesis, and hot hometown chief of police, volunteers to assist in the investigation, things begin to heat up between the two of them. It was a fun and quick summer read to enjoy by the pool. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Brandi | 3/11/2012

    " I'll be nice and just say this was a boooooring book, it took way too long to get to the solving of the crime, it was very uninteresting but once I started it I felt like I had to finish it. I shant read any more from this author, sorry! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brittany | 3/9/2012

    " blah! I read Blindside and really liked it, but Coulter blew this one. Nothing happens until the last few pages and there were a lot of parts that had to be skipped over. Dirty! "
