Mary Lisa Beverly is not a scheming bitch; she only plays one on TV. Her alter ego Sunday Cavendish is the reason the soap opera Born to be Wild is a high rated Daytime Emmy winning success. Viewers love to hate Sunday but Mary Lisa is nothing like her. She is fun, sweet, and generous to a fault. Which makes it harder to imagine that someone would try to run her over blocks away from her beachfront Malibu home.
Bruised and frightened, Mary Lisa can think of only one place where she would be safe—Goddard Bay, Oregon her hometown. There in the bosom of her somewhat loving family—her two crazy self-absorbed sisters, her indifferent mother and her thankfully normal loving father— she can heal while the Malibu police conduct their investigation.
When she returns home the last person she expects to show up on her doorstep is Goddard Bay’s Chief of Police Jack Wolf. They shared a night in a cell three years before (actually, Mary Lisa was in the cell and Jack was the arresting officer.) Turning to Jack for help feels like the right thing to do, but a lot of things are starting to feel right when it comes to Jack. But with the attacks continuing Mary Lisa can think of no good reason to send him away from her.
Born to be Wild is a fun light read well worth reading. Catherine Coulter’s well honed wit and talented pen shine throughout this book. With a cast of likable off beat characters Born to be Wild will keep you entertained from beginning to end.
