"Born To Be Wild," a popular soap opera, stars Mary Lisa Beverly as bad girl Sunday Cavendish. When Mary Lisa, who is really a perfectly nice person, is nearly run down by a car, she quickly realizes the incident was a murder attempt. During the ensuing investigation, Mary Lisa falls in love, nearly dies, wisecracks, finds a corpse or two, and staves off an obnoxious paparazzo. Susanna Burney has an appropriate vocal personality for such a light romance/mystery. She sounds likable, good humored, and smart. Largely stinting the laugh lines, she treats the novel's other elements with a bit too much understatement. Her infrequent bursts of sparkle add brief gusts of freshness. Would that there were more of them! Y.R. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 06/ JAN 07]
