Review: Gold Coast Wives
Author: Bernadette Walsh
Publisher: Lyrical Press
Genre: Contemporary romance, fiction
Length: 179 pages
Review rating: 4 LIGHTNING BOLTS
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
It's the chance of a lifetime. With nothing else left to lose, Kate jumps on board.
Gold Coast Wives is a fun, fast paced story about life in the reality show business. There's a lot of quirky characters, there's a bit of fighting and over jealous people, but yeah, that's to be expected in a realty tv setting. I really enjoyed this story. It made me laugh, and the plot concept was really great.
Bernadette Walsh has a fresh and exiting voice that makes for a pleasurable read when picking up this author's story. This is my first read, and I would definitely look for more titles from Ms. Walsh. What an entertaining story.
