Gold Coast Wives by Bernadette Walsh {Excerpt/Review/Giveaway} - Ends 6/10


Back Cover Copy

Three skinny socialites should be a pushover after the rough and tumble world of Wall Street. Right?

Kate Ryan may be au fait with making high-powered legal decisions, but she's about to submit to the rules of reality TV, where nothing is what it seems. Who'd have thought a few days with the cameras rolling for a low-rent cable show would be so challenging, or that the claws of a former homecoming queen, a washed-up soap star and a whiny cat-lover would be so sharp?


At the jewelry launch party I sat next to Annabella, sharing her enormous plate of fried calamari and chatting about her recent divorce. She assured me that the brave new world of online dating was a treasure trove of men who couldn’t wait to meet overweight forty-somethings like us. Sure, some of them had prison records, but who wasn’t entitled to a mistake or two? Annabella’s owl earrings
shook with optimism as she offered to set me up on a double date with her most recent felon’s--oh, I’m sorry, boyfriend’s--brother. I was noncommittal as I continued to inhale the calamari.

“If it isn’t my favorite lawyer!”

“Paul,” I said, turning around to face him. “What are you doing here?”

“And it’s nice to see you too, Ms. Ryan.”

Annabella winked at me and made a hasty retreat to the raw bar serving station. Behind Paul’s back, she gave me a thumbs up. Way to stay classy, Annabella. Paul was kind of cute with his deep brown eyes and crooked smile. If my husband’sabsence became permanent, Paul wouldn’t be a bad transition man. He’d certainly be more acceptable and less scary than Annabella’s ex-cons.

About The Author:

I have always been a bookworm and had always meant to write a novel "someday".  You know, when I won the lottery and could live in a beach house and look out onto the water and feel inspired.  For years ago I decided to stop waiting for my winning lottery ticket and sat down and started writing in between working and my family obligations.  I piled the words on top of each other until they formed sentences, paragraphs, chapters and eventually a book. The House on Prospect is my second novel.  My first, a contemporary romance, Gold Coast Wives, was published in November 2011.  The first book of my paranormal trilogy, Devils Mountain - Book One of the Devlin Legacy, is due to be published in June 2012.  While I've hopped around genres, all of my books to date have a common theme: strong women handling what life throws at them the best way they can.


Gold Coast Wives was an very entertaining book that was a really fun quick read.  Kate Ryan goes from a high powered lawery to reality TV to enduring the challenges with the ups and downs from those around her.  From the beginning to the end, these characters will have you either loving them or hating them. 

I give this a 5 star rating!
