One of the best books I have read in a long time. Nice to find one that you can enjoy.
This one is lots of fun. Any fans of soap operas should take note; there's a lot of fascinating history here along with a somewhat twisty plot and definitely twisted relatives! After reading this one, we'll never complain about our own dysfunctional families again.
From back cover: 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.
This is a good book for a summer read for those that enjoy Nora Roberts and are looking for another author that writes in a similar style. A fast read.
