Publisher's Summary

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.

Enjoy,

Catherine Coulter

Critic Reviews

"Susanna Burney has an appropriate vocal personality for such a light romance/mystery. She sounds likable, good humored, and smart." (AudioFile)

Classic Coulter Melodrama

Even though I vaguely remember reading this book when it was first published, probably 20+ years ago, I was pleasantly surprised that the plot was still entertaining.

More than just a romance, Born to be Wild was about female friendships, rocky familial relationships and solving multiple crimes.

I Enjoyed The Soap Opera History

Good story. Good plot. Good characters. I liked the soap opera tidbits at the beginning of each chapter.

Stay With It

I like Catherine Coulter but I had to restart this book three times before sticking with it long enough to finish it. It ended up being pretty good. The narration was not the best but it was not irritating.

hard to follow reader

the story is lovely... But the reader was difficult to follow in dialogs because she used no variation in voice to indicate a different speaker.
